Question from the Internet:
“Why is it important to understand the diversity and interconnectedness of society and community?”
Because our lives, our collective human survival depends on this.
Today we have reached an unprecedented, explosive paradox between our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and subjective nature vs the globally integrated and interdependent world we evolved into.
At the moment — as a result of our diversity, differences, inability to understand each other, to agree with each other, to cooperate efficiently — we reached the brink of mutual self-destruction, which could be initiated at any moment from multiple different causes in multiple different locations.
Some popular — and increasingly aggressive — ideologies, movements suggest that in order to make peace, to work together we all have to become the same. But that is totally impossible, our individual, national, cultural uniqueness, identity cannot be erased, changed, imitated. Any such attempt will only draw an even stronger rebound reaction.
Instead, we have to learn — through a unique, purposeful, and highly practical educational method — how we can interconnect and cooperate successfully above and against our inherent tendencies, above our diversity which will not be subdued but will even grow.
But with the right method we can use our diversity, differing opinions, disagreements positively, constructively, actually augmenting, helping the unique cooperation like the cooperation between our extremely diverse cells, organs, and the microbiome in our biological body giving us life and heightened consciousness.
So we can imagine what kind of life and what kind of consciousness a Human “super-organism” could achieve with the right cooperation, mutuality!
