How can we make our planet inhabitable again for ourselves and future generations?

Question from the Internet:

“How can we, the human beings on mother Earth, make this world a comfortable place to live in for the rest of our lives?”

In order to make this planet livable for ourselves and for future generations, we have to become compatible with existence on this planet.

By default, due to our inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic nature, and our constantly self-serving, self-justifying, and exploitative calculations and actions, we are incompatible with nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system.

And while for millennia it seemed that humanity could exist and develop within our artificial “human bubble” — against and outside of nature while negatively influencing nature — now we suddenly reached a point where our incompatibility drove us to the threshold of self-destruction.

We will be able to survive and “live well” on this planet only when global human society takes on the shape of nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system, where each individual human being finds and fulfills one’s most optimal, mutually responsible and mutually complementing role and purpose in the whole system through humanity.

We need to abandon all our arbitrary and baseless ideologies, philosophies, religions, and sciences and focus on learning how nature’s system survives and develops through mutual; integration, mutual coexistence, and cooperation.

Then we will create a human world that can exist and within which we all find our most optimal life experience, while also partnering with and guarding nature.
