How can we describe human society, humanity?
Question from the Internet:
“What is a thing that would best represent society and humanity as a whole? Can you give a deep explanation and give examples?”
We exist in Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system. Humanity is but a single species, “organ” in Nature’s cosmic body. Individual human beings are like individual cells of a single, living organism.
Despite this, as a result of the unique, inherently self-centered, self-justifying, subjective, and individualistic human ego, we mistakenly feel ourselves as “standalone” independent beings, as if we could do whatever we wanted as if we had individual freedom, rights.
This is the root cause of all the problems, conflicts in our individual and collective lives, the paradoxical incompatibility of how human beings sense existence and how existence actually is.
The task of our generation — based on the overwhelming historic and real-life experience, seeing how we are self-destructing as we are incompatible with our actual evolutionary conditions — is to help ourselves out of our subjective, egocentric, individualistic illusion and start existing, collectively, mutually as Nature demands it from us.
It is very clear by now that we are totally incapable of understanding let alone solving our mounting global problems due to our inherent mindset, behavior. We have no choice but to start adapting ourselves to Nature’s laws, rebuilding our connections, human society on Nature’s finely balanced, integral template.
This is achievable through the right, purposeful, and practical educational method, this way we can proactively start changing our worldview, our attitude towards others and the world, without waiting for increasing suffering, socioeconomic meltdown, inevitable wars, natural catastrophes convincing us to wake up from our egocentric, individualistic illusion.
