Globalization — a homogeneous, integral system of unite individuals

Question from the Internet:

“Are the societies in the world becoming more similar (homogenous) or more different (heterogenous) in the age of globalization?”

It is both.

On one hand globalization - which is a state necessitated by Nature’s evolution - forces us into a fully integrated, interdependent, homogeneous system.

At the same time our unique individual, natural differences, identities won’t disappear it is the opposite. As a result of our continuing egotistic development the differences, incompatibility between us will intensify and it cannot be suppressed or erased.

This is why we need a special, purposeful and highly practical global, integral education, so we could learn how to build the crucially necessary, mutually responsible, mutually complementing global interconnections, cooperation.

Only such interconnections, cooperation can provide us with problem solving ability, and safeguard our collective Human survival in Nature’s fully integrated system.

Specifically the tension, the consciously built dynamic connection, integration above and against our differences - the ensuing contrast, comparative research ability - gives Humanity the unparalleled ability to understand, observe, even control Nature’s perfect system.
