Don’t worry about Nature, worry about Humanity!

No need to worry about Nature

The pandemic and the “Human pause” during the lockdown has shown that Nature’s perfect system can repair itself almost immediately as soon as Humans retreat.

Some of the changes were so fast and complete that it seemed almost miraculous.

Which means that we do not actually have to worry about the Natural environment, it is doing very well, as if patiently waiting for us to self-destruct so it could continue its multi-billion years long development according to plan.

Humanity is the endangered species

We need to worry only about ourselves. We are the only truly endangered species in this world. We are a unique type of cancer that will kill itself before killing the “host”.

So we should focus all our efforts, energies, activism on saving ourselves, by learning from Nature how closed, fully integrated, living Natural systems — like Humanity — need to work in order to develop optimally and survive.

Rebuilding Humanity on Nature’s template

Now that our present self-destructive and unsustainable Human system is collapsing, we received the chance to take stock, use our special Human intellect capable of critical self-assessment, and start rebuilding Humanity on Nature’s perfect blueprint.

This means building the foundations on mutually responsible and mutually complementing global connections — above and despite our inherent differences, despite and individual and national uniqueness which will remain — and following a lifestyle based on modern, healthy, natural necessities within the optimal parameters of available Natural and Human resources.

Then we will become as resilient and indestructible, growing from strength to strength as Nature itself.
