How can we find the right solutions?

Question from the Internet:

“How do people come up with solutions to problems?”

Usually, when we identify the true, actual root cause of any problems, that already leads us to the solution. Our main problem is that most of the time we settle on symptomatic solutions — which are of course ineffective and backfire — as we do not want to dig deep enough to find the true cause and effect processes and the root cause.

This is understandable.

We instinctively fear what we would find if we searched deep enough. After all, at the basis of all problems that plague humanity — both on the individual and on the collective level — is our own, inherently egocentric, self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative, and individualistic nature.

It is this inner program that drives us towards insatiable, excessive overconsumption, ruthless competition, success, and survival at the expense of others. It is this inherent human program that also makes us incompatible with Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system.

The moment we identified, accepted that actual, true root cause, we would immediately understand what we need to do: to change, correct, upgrade ourselves until we reach compatibility with Nature by mutually, positively integrating with each other.

And we have the necessary, purposeful, and practical scientific method for this. Only our own desire, understanding, and willingness are missing.
