From imaginary to real freedom

Question from the Internet:

“What is your own philosophy about the freedom of the human person? Why?”

My answer is not based on personal philosophy, or philosophy at all, but it is based on a unique, empirical Natural science that had been studying Human nature in contrast to Nature’s perfect system for millennia.

According to this science — which we can actually observe easily by ourselves — we have no personal freedom at all. In one hand we are totally controlled by our inherently egocentric, subjective, selfish instincts that determine all our thoughts, desires, decisions and actions.

Moreover we live in a fully integrated, interdependent Human society, that in turn is fully integrated into Nature’s fully integrated system, operating by strict, unbending laws.

Our only true freedom is to learn in a special, “laboratory-like" environment how to liberate ourselves from the control of our selfish egos. We can do so by purposefully, methodically acquiring the ability to unconditionally care for, support, serve others in a unique, mutually supportive, mutually complementing matter.

This brings multiple advantages.

By such a selfless, altruistic society we become similar to Nature’s integral system and as a result we become the system’s only conscious, “inner observers", partners.

Moreover by liberating ourselves from the inherently egocentric, subjective consciousness, perception of reality, we acquire the ability to send existence above the boundaries of time, space and physical motion, which illusory coordinate exist only for an egocentric, subjective observer.
