Global health

Question from the internet:

“What are the modern problems of global health?”

The modern problem with global health is that we still do not understand what it means that we exist in a globally integrated and fully interdependent world that makes us individual cells of a single organism.

As a result, we all behave like cancer-cells, instinctively making egocentric, subjective calculations for self-benefit only, surviving, succeeding at each other’s expense.

This is why the pandemic has become a much worse global health issue than it should have been, this is why are desperately helpless in assessing, handling global climate change and any other pressing global issues that threaten even our existence.

In order to continue surviving natural evolution, we will have to learn how to behave, interconnect and cooperate through our interdependence using nature’s integral template as a blueprint.
