How can we achieve sustainable development?

Question from the Internet:

“What sustainable development goal are you committed to?”

I am committed to building sustainable, positive, constructive, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing interconnections between people.

Through such mutual integration, we will become similar to, adapted to Nature’s mutually integrated, interdependent system.

Through that similarity, by becoming integrated into Nature we will start to understand what our true natural necessities and available resources are.

And then we will be able to adjust ourselves to sustainable living, sustainable development.

If we try to figure it out without reaching compatibility, integration with Nature first — by mutually integrating with each other — we will always, inevitably fail and put ourselves into an ever-worsening crisis, because all our assessments, decisions, “solutions” will be based on our inherently egocentric, subjective, exploitative calculations.
