Covid-19 had awakened us, lost children…

“Merciful” virus

The Coronavirus awakened us from our illusiory belief in ourselves, it showed a brutally honest mirror in front of us, showing the truth in our relationships, socio-economic systems, practices.

In this respect we can even call it “merciful”, helpful as the virus gave us an opportunity to reassess our present situation, how we got here development, the virus gave us a chance to change before we self-destruct.

Stubbornly forcing an unsustainable system

Our present socio-economic system was already heading for collapse, since it is unsustainable in Nature’s global, integral system.

A total disintegration was on the cards for decades as we stubbornly believed in this illusion, that we can just continue exploiting everything through excessive overproduction, overconsumption, paying for debts with even greater debts while surviving at each other’s expense and destroying Nature in the process.

Lost children

The virus proved that we are all locked into the same system, while we still try to act, respond individually, nationally. We also learned that together with it a advanced technology we know nothing about the natural system we live in, it sciences don’t even scratch the surface as they are all theoretical, conjured up with it egocentric, subjective minds.

Our knowledge, our systems work only in our artificial bubble to a certain extent, but when it comes to countering Nature’s forces, to real life situations, we are like lost children.

Starting a new, conscious, mature Human development

We reached a very unique stage in Human development, where evolution expects us to leave our childish games, reckless ignorance, to start a new, this time conscious phase of Human evolution, methodically studying Nature’s evolutionary direction in order to adapt, align ourselves with it.

This new, mature, truly Human approach is our only guarantee for collective survival (and there is no individual or national survival in a global, integral system, especially not at each other’s expense).
