Question from the Internet:

“What is the best way to achieve lasting world peace?”

In order to create and keep lasting world peace, we will have to learn to exist and act above and against our inherent nature.

Inherently we are all 100% egocentric, subjective, and individualistic, we all care only about our own benefit, progress, and success. And for this personal benefit and success, we are ready to do anything, to ruthlessly compete and fight and succeed at the expense of each other.

The whole of human history is about individuals, groups of people, or nations competing, fighting, and succeeding against one another. Everything we do, create or devise is used to manipulate, control or destroy our “competitors” and “enemies”.

As long as we blindly follow our inherent nature, the endless vicious cycles of history will continue until we completely self-destruct — which global self-destruction could come in this or in the next generation. We will either directly destroy our human system through wars and socioeconomic collapse, or we indirectly cause our demise, since as we are, we are incapable of mutually responsible and mutually complementing global action. Without this, we can’t even comprehend the mounting global problems threatening our existence, let alone solve them.

Our global problem-solving ability and safeguarding our global survival depends on building and sustaining “nature-like”, mutually integrated, and mutually complementing existence and behavior — above and against our instincts and inherent attitude towards each other.

This requires a special, purposeful, and practical method, that is already available, and already thousands of people started this unprecedented and conscious self-developmental process.
