How can so many diverse people become equal?!

Question from the Internet:

“Human beings are each unique and different. We are NOT all the same in attributes and capabilities. How are we all equal?”

For the right answer, we will need to understand how integral, living systems — like our biological body for example — work.

In integral, living systems all comprising element — regardless of their size or function — is equally important, as the system cannot work most optimally unless all elements perform their own, most optimal function, role in the system and receive everything — justly, proportionately — what they need to perform that role, action.

We still do not understand even our own bodies, so we think there are organs, body parts we can remove, ignore as if they weren’t necessary for optimal health, survival.

But in Nature, there is nothing obsolete, accidental, we just simply do not understand the system, and ourselves in the system yet.

An ideal human society — in our times this is the global human society — allows each member to find their most ideal, selfless, unconditional contribution to the whole, each according to their inherent abilities and actual conditions. And then each justly, proportionately also receives everything they need and deserve for maintaining their crucially important, unique, and irreplaceable mutual contribution.

We will never achieve this ideal state following our arbitrary ideologies, philosophies, religions that are all built by and for our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative egos. But we can achieve the ideal scenario, mutual, collective existence if we follow Nature’s integral template and the laws that sustain the general homeostasis life depends on.

Then we will acquire an unprecedented, qualitatively much higher sense of existence, elevating ourselves from the present “single-cell” consciousness, perception to a “truly Human”, collective, systematic consciousness, perception of reality above and beyond the subjective, egoistic limitations of time, space and physical motion.
