Finally, we have to recognize and understand our inherent nature!
Question from the Internet:
“Are humans truly individualistic or gregarious? Do you think most people act so as to make a good impact on the crowd or just for their own benefit? Why?”
It is actually amazing how much, after millennia of breathtaking development, human beings still have no idea about their own nature or internal software.
We have been researching and consuming the world; we are developing AI and want to colonize other planets, but we have no idea who we are and for what purpose we were born!
And this “ignorance” — or reluctance to truly look into ourselves and discover why evolution created us and what it expects from us — can cost us our existence.
Evolution gave birth to humans with a 100% self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic and exploitative consciousness and a very limited, egocentric and subjective perception of reality that serves the above-mentioned consciousness. By default, we can act only for ourselves, making each and every calculation and decision and acting only for our own sake — most of the time at the expense of others, knowingly or unknowingly.
Nature’s evolution had a very sharply defined “purpose” in making us so self-centred and opposite to the rest of Nature. Our actual role in this Natural system — which would justify us being the “peak of Natural evolution — requires this initial start as opposites and “outsiders” compared to the rest of the Natural system.
We are supposed to become Nature’s only fully conscious, on the one hand, seamlessly integrated and, on the other hand, independent observers and equal partners.
This is why we are born with the abovementioned “unnatural” selfish ego while we also have the ability to willingly and consciously further develop and complement ourselves with Nature’s altruistic and cooperative qualities. We will finish our development and complete “being Human” when we achieve a finely balanced duality between our instinctive and acquired nature and qualities.
Today we are at the unique crossroads of needing to start a new, this time conscious phase of development when we start complementing our initial self-destructive nature that brought us to the brink of extinction. We — at least for a critical minority of people — reached the necessary recognition of our inherent nature and we also have the necessary, purposeful and practical method for acquiring and using the new, Nature-like abilities and qualities that can balance and control our inherent egos.
When we achieve this ability, then we will be able to start acting collectively for the sake of the “greater good”. Moreover, through new, positive, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing interconnections and cooperation, we will also acquire a unique collective consciousness and composite perception of reality that will guide and define our future existence from now on.
