How should we approach a global, integrated society?
Question from the Internet:
“What criteria could we use to decide which idea or approaches work best for the benefit of everyone?”
This question is fast becoming the key question for continuing Human survival.
Since we have evolved into a globally integrated and totally interdependent world — pressed and determined by Nature’s laws of integration — our problem-solving ability and continuing collective survival will depend on how fast we find the approach you are asking about.
In this globally integrated and interdependent world we have all become single cells in Humanity’s single, closed, mutually integrated and interdependent organism which is also an integral part of Nature’s fully integrated living system.
We can’t escape this even if wanted to colonize other planets. After all, Nature works exactly by the same laws on other planets or even in other galaxies as it works on Earth.
This means, that if we do not adapt ourselves to Nature’s integral system and to the strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws that determine and govern the finely balanced general homeostasis life depends on, we simply lose our right to survive evolution.
Evolution is the “survival of the fittest” which — contrary to the popular interpretation — means the “fittest to integrate and mutually complement”.
Thus the approach we need to choose is not something we need to invent, find or create. We simply have to learn and keep Nature’s laws of integration and rebuild human interconnections and the fabric of human society based on how Nature is building and sustaining its integral system.
Then we will all find and fulfil our unique, irreplaceable role in the system while justly and proportionately receiving everything we need and deserve in order to keep that mutually complementing role.
