Egotistic development has exhausted itself, Nature expects us to grow up and change

Question from the Internet:

“Why is humanity not advancing as much as we used to?”

Because the previous development was purely egotistic, individualistic, based on unnatural excessive consumption and success at each other’s and Nature’s expense. Nevertheless that reckless, egotistic development propelled Humanity through its achievements, civilization building activity in a way how children develop.

But this egotistic, self-serving, “childish” development has exhausted itself, and now Nature’s evolution treats us as adults from now on - as mature creatures that have to align themselves, become compatible with Nature.

This is why the pandemic is a truly watershed event, signaling the end of the previous era in Human history and the start of a completely new, this time conscious, purposeful and conscious development.

It doesn’t matter how much we want to return to the life we live before, Nature won’t allow it, all excessive, non-essential production, consumption will cease. And it is very much for our own advantage since we were blindly marching towards self-destruction.

Our lifestyle will scale down to stay within the optimal parameters of healthy, modern, natural necessities and available natural resources. And all excessive energy, focus will be exerted to build the positive, altruistic, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections that will make Humanity equal, partnering Nature.
