Coming back to our senses

The pandemic is still affecting most countries, while we start to grapple with the unfolding socio-economic crisis affecting our lives in a fundamental way. What changes do we expect to see in Humanity now that we unexpectedly received a chance for review, revision, rebuild?

I would like to see us “coming back to our senses” after we have been duping ourselves for centuries that we live outside of, above the system of Nature we were born from, still exist in, still evolve with.

As a result of our illusion we have built a Human system that lives, behaves contrary to Nature’s “iron laws” that sustain the fragile balance and homeostasis life and positive development is based upon.

Even the fact that we have been developing through recurring, vicious cycles, as all our civilizations collapsed without natural foundations did not deter us.

Now we broke — the virus simply, “mercifully pulled the plug on life support — the most promising Human system built on liberal, parliamentary democracy, and free-market capitalism, since it does not matter what ideologies, systems, what political, economic, social setup we use, as long as we keep going against Nature’s laws.

So I would like to see us rebuilding our Human system, but this time not on our own illusory ideas, laws, but on Nature’s blueprint, template. And in Nature balance and homeostasis is based on natural necessities and available resources and those are attained, allocated through mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, cooperation of all comprising elements, where each makes their calculations for the benefit of the whole collective above, before any individualistic calculations.

Without going with Nature’s template we will continue stumbling from crisis to crisis until intolerable suffering will force us to accept the natural template in order to survive.
