How can Human Beings become positive elements in Nature?

Question from the Internet:

“What can humans do to satisfy the world?”

Human beings have a unique and predetermined evolutionary Human purpose in nature’s system.

Only when we find and fulfill our purpose will we be able to “satisfy the world.”

As long as we remain unaware of this unique Human purpose and we keep acting against it, we only cause harm and destruction.

By default, we are born with a 100% self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and individualistic nature. This inherent nature drives us to excessively consume everything beyond our necessities; we keep ruthlessly and exclusively competing and fighting with each other and nature. We actually enjoy succeeding at each other’s and nature’s expense as then we can prove ourselves higher than anybody and anything.

It is this inherent and instinctive human nature that drove our insatiable and incredible cultural, social, and technological development, but it also took us to the brink of seemingly inevitable and imminent self-destruction.

In this present and dire state, we need to activate another uniquely human ability to critically assess ourselves and willingly and purposefully initiate a very different human development — above and against our inherent nature.

Humanity’s predetermined evolutionary purpose is to become nature’s only fully conscious, seamlessly integrated, and at the same time independent “inner observers” and equal partners.

It is specifically against and above our inherent nature that we can achieve this unique Human purpose if we recognize the “inherent evil” in the human ego that drives us and develop a true need and desire to change and further develop ourselves until we become able and willing to exist and behave against and above the destructive human ego.

We need to use the human ego and the world we created through and for the human ego as a reference point and contrast, against which we can rebuild humanity in nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated template.

When we become seamlessly integrated into nature’s system through selfless and benevolent integration with one another, we will reach our unique evolutionary role and purpose and become a positive, constructive, and satisfying element in nature’s system.
