Covid-19: The chance to learn to become Human
In the future, the present Coronavirus crisis will be heralded as the great turning point of Human evolution when we switched from a blind, instinctive development to a conscious, active one when Humanity took its fate into its own hands.
Up to this point our history is the chronicle of the relentlessly, exponentially growing instinctive Human ego driving us towards explorations, inventions, conquests, always wanting more, greater, stronger, more complex, more expensive, tastier with an insatiable hunger that is ready to consume all…
But as we also evolved into a globally integrated and interdependent system according to Nature’s evolutionary plan that drives the whole natural system towards seamless integration, our ego has become like cancer.
For the last few decades, the previous fuel and the seemingly endless road ahead has slowly disappeared. Our socio-economic system built of reckless, excessive overproduction, overconsumption did not improve quality of life any longer but started destroying it, breaking, harming our Human connection, the family our health (diseases as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle, depression, substance abuse) and the natural environment.
Even before the pandemic, we were already looking at our own civilization-ending explosion that could have been triggered by multiple sources in multiple locations at any moment. But the virus suddenly froze this seemingly inevitable self-destruction, triggering restrictions, lockdowns instead.
Now we have received the chance to use our unique Human free choice and our also unique Human mind that is capable of critical self-assessment. By recognizing that all our past and present problems result from the inherently egoistic, selfish, greedy and hateful nature we are all born with, we can initiate an unprecedented self-change, self-upgrade by using a special, purposeful and practical educational method.
The method does not try to suppress, erase our egos, our individual, national identities (which is impossible), but it helps us learn — without coercion, attracting people willingly after seeing the clear benefits of the changes — how to channel, harness our instincts, our competitive spirit for the sake of the whole collective, for the sake of reaching integration with each other and through reaching integration with Nature.
Since our integration into nature is a conscious, proactive process — above and against our inherent program, consciousness — Human beings can acquire an unparalleled insight, intimate partnership with Nature’s perfect system, attaining and using nature’s blueprints, solutions for any problems.
Thus in the future, a few generations from now on, our descendants will look back to our generation as unique pioneers, the first generation that acted, existed freely above their instinctive, “animate” nature as truly Human beings.
