Freedom — the main law of Nature

Question from the Internet:

“Why do we humans desire freedom so much?”

Freedom is built into our DNA, and not only in ours, but this need for freedom is present all across Nature. Animals can’t strive in captivity, some can’t even survive.

So this constant yearning for freedom is built into us and it is impossible to suppress or erase. And we can see all through human history how this “fight for freedom” determines most of what we are doing. We are constantly searching for, fighting for the freedom of the individual, the freedom of nations, races, genders and so on.

The problem is that until now, we haven’t actually realized who or what we need to liberate ourselves from. We haven’t actually felt or comprehended what is causing our many limitations and all the problems and crisis situations we encounter in life, individually and collectively.

We usually fight against others, against certain people or movements, against certain ideologies, religions nations, the police or certain armies.

We still haven’t realized that the true tyrant, the ruthless dictator that keeps all of us captive as its slaves is our own, inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and exploitative egos. It is this ego that drives us towards excessive accumulation, overconsumption of resources and profit for ourselves. It is this ego that makes us thrive for ruthless competition, constant conflicts and wars in order to survive and succeed at each other’s expense.

It is this subjective ego that locks us into a very limited and distorted perception of reality, bounded by the subjective limitations of time, space and physical motion.

The true freedom we need to aspire for is our total liberation from the control of our egos, each and every person learning how to change and upgrade one’s goals and intentions from the instinctively self-serving mode to selfless, unconditionally serving, complimenting others.

By liberating ourselves from our individual egos and selfish existence we could form a unique, unprecedented, single Human “superorganism” with its collective consciousness, collective intelligence and perception of reality that is not bound by time, space and physical motion.

Through this mutual organism, we would all gain access to a completely different, qualitatively much higher, “truly Human” sense of existence without any limitations.
