Question from the Internet:
“We can fly in the air, we can go to the sea, and we can live in space, but we cannot live together peacefully without war. What is the reason?”
The reason is that we are selective in learning about and using Nature’s strict, unchanging laws.
For example since we learnt how the law of gravity works and how we can use different natural compounds to generate propelling force, while we modeled airplanes copying birds, we learnt how to fly.
All other seemingly breakthrough human activities are thanks to learning their templates from Nature. Reportedly even the clutch mechanism we use for changing gears was found in an insect’s limb.
Knowingly, unknowingly we use, “reinvent" things, methods, templates that are already in existence in Nature, and whatever we build is by using whatever we find in Nature.
But with our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egoistic and subjective nature we proudly believe we are creators, inventors and we can choose which Natural laws we accept which we don’t.
Thus we keep ignoring the most fundamental Natural laws that sustain the general balance and homeostasis life depends on. We stubbornly believe that we can continue existing through excessively overconsuming everything and ruthlessly competing, succeeding at each other’s and Nature’s expense.
Today we reached that stage when this can cost our human existence, as our civilization in its present, unnatural form will self-destruct, it has no right to exist in Nature’s lawful system.
So everything depends on learning and implementing all of Nature’s laws that are obligatory for us, by consciously, methodically changing, adapting ourselves to Nature’s system.
The fact that human beings have to do this actively, with full awareness — contrary to other parts of Nature that are blindly, instinctively integrated into Nature — gives us our unique evolutionary advantage.
