Question from the Internet:
“The problem of a long-range planner is what we should do today to be ready for the uncertain tomorrow. What does this mean?”
This means that as long as we continue developing and “planning” according to our inherently egocentric, subjective and individualistic intellect and calculations, we remain locked into our artificial, unfounded “human Matrix”.
As a result, we are constantly “shooting aimlessly into the dark”, moving like a rudderless ship on a stormy ocean, never knowing what blows and crises await us around the corner. Without fundamental changes in our approach and attitude towards each other and the world in general, we continue the helplessly recurring, vicious historical cycles, falling into the same traps but more dangerously and intensely.
The only way we could safely and accurately plan ahead is by knowing Nature’s deterministic evolutionary plan that pushes the whole Natural system on a precise path based on distinct and specific cause and effect processes. And when we learn about this natural plan, and we get to know the cause and effect processes that determine everything in the Universe, we need to “plan” to unconditionally adapt ourselves to this natural process — above and against our inherent nature.
And while it might sound like surrender, what we actually achieve by choosing Nature’s leadership over the dictum of our inherently egocentric, subjective and exploitative egos is that we become Nature’s only conscious, fully integrated and at the same time independent observers and equal partners.
