For Humans integration, belonging to society, to Nature is not instinctive, we have to learn this
Question from the Internet:
“Do the majority of people act as if they don’t live in a society?”
We find ourselves in a strange paradox. We are social creatures and Nature also views us as a single species, so we need to live in societies to cater for our necessities and to survive.
On the other hand we are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic nature, self-awareness, feeling ourselves as the center of the Universe.
We can look at it this way: although we are all but individual cells of the same organ, body, according to our inherently egocentric, subjective perception we think, feel as if we existed independent of the body and can do whatever we want even see the expense of the other cells, at the expense of the body.
This is not our fault.
Human beings are very unique in Nature. While all other parts, elements of the system are blindly, instinctively integrated, living, functioning according to Nature’s laws sustaining balance and homeostasis, automatically fulfilling their role in Nature’s “circle of life”, Human beings are born unaware of this Natural integration. We feel ourselves outside, abandoned by the system.
This is why we feel forced to ruthlessly, exclusively fight for our survival, succeeding at the expense of others and Nature.
This is all purposeful from evolution, to give us the chance and ability to achieve integration with the other “Human cells”, rebuilding Humanity’s healthy organ and then “transplant” this Human organ back into Nature’s body consciously, actively, methodically.
This way we can learn the system and its laws and through the conscious integration we can achieve such a level of understanding, attainment, as if we ourselves designed, governed the system by ourselves!
