How to use science and technology properly for our advantage?

Question from the internet:

How does progressive development in science and technology continue to contribute in shaping human history?

How development in science and technology will contribute to sharing Human history solely depends in us, the “users”.

If we continue using everything according to our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and individualistic nature, then we will continue using science and technology selfishly, in a destructive way: for excessive individual profit and for war.

If we learn how to use everything we have, we invent, develop for the sake of the common good, for the well-being of the whole collective, for the whole system we exist in, then science and technology will propel us towards unprecedented heights, towards a qualitatively much higher, collective Human existence.

This is why we need to focus on the desires, intentions inside us, to adjust, change, correct them in a way that instead of making calculations only for our own sake, we start making calculations for the sake of everybody.

For this we need a unique, purposeful and practical educational method which can teach us, make us feel how to live, exist in the globally integrated and totally interdependent world we have evolved into.
