How should we choose an environment?
Question from the Internet:
“Should I choose a better environment but not something I’m interested in, or choose something I want to do but in a bad environment?”
It is the environment that shapes us, that gives us our values, aspirations, and behavioral patterns. The environment acts like a human incubator, defining who we are and who we will become.
At the moment, it does not matter which environment we choose, whether we like it or not, as all human environments are based and built on our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and individualistic nature that wants to exploit and consume only for one’s own sake.
So it does not matter what values, ideologies, philosophies, religions, or practices we follow in the “chosen” environment. At the end of the day, it will form us into selfish, egoistic, narcissistic, and exploitative people, regardless of the “colors, tastes or external clothing” of that environment and its members.
By default, there are only “bad environments” in the world when we look at them from an objective, systematic point of view, how these human environments behave in nature’s lawful, deterministic, finely balanced, and mutually integrated system.
Choosing a “good environment” has nothing to do with “being interested” in that environment or considering it a “bad environment” from our own, egocentric and subjective point of view.
Choosing a good environment means building and sustaining an unprecedented human environment that exists and develops above and against our inherent nature, following nature’s life-creating and life-nourishing laws and principles.
