How can we understand the current world order?
Question from the Internet:
“How can we understand the current world order?”
It is basically simple. Our world — both historically and today — is built upon our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and ruthlessly exploitative nature.
Thus — both historically and today — the most egocentric and ruthless individuals and nations ruled over and exploited the slightly less egocentric and ruthless individuals and nations, or those who were behind in the inevitably egocentric, individualistic and exploitative development of human nature.
By now, we have reached the end-game of this 100% self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and “cancer-like” human development — especially in the West, although the rest of the world is fast catching up — and we face a very realistic scenario of total self-destruction on a global scale.
So either we succumb to our cancer-like egos and disappear from Natural evolution — since we are totally incompatible and opposite to Nature’s finely balanced, mutually integrated, lawful and deterministic system — or we finally start using our unique human intellect capable of critical self-recognition and initiating fundamental self-development.
Through this unique human intellect, we can recognize our inherent incompatibility with Nature and the inevitable self-destruction without changing ourselves. Then we can develop a true, irrepressible and intolerable need to change and further develop ourselves willingly and consciously.
Then we can start using a special, purposeful and practical method that can help us harness so far unseen and unknown forces in Nature’s system that can help us change ourselves in a way we could not even imagine before.
Then, as a result of those changes, we can become consciously and willingly adapted to Nature system and become the system’s only conscious, integrated and at the same time independent observers and equal partners.
This is the purpose of our human existence.
