Question from the Internet:
“What is the most widely accepted theory of human behavior?”
I am not sure about theories.
I study a unique, empirical, natural science that has been studying human nature in contrast to the finely balanced, integral Natural system we are born from, and I can clearly see that the way it describes human nature, behavior is true.
According to this science, we are all — purposefully — created by Nature’s evolution with a 100% self-serving, egocentric, individualistic nature, driven by an insatiable ego. This sharply differentiates us from the rest of the fully integrated, altruistic Natural system.
It is only the human ego that differentiates us from other animals, this ego drove our incredible human development while other animals basically remain unchanged for millions of years.
At the same time this ego, our incompatibility with the rest of Nature also causes our destructive behavior to such an extent that in our generation we feel ourselves very close to total self-destruction.
This is all purposeful by evolution — it is not our sin, or mistake — as only through this incompatibility did human beings become independent of Nature, only this way do we have the potential ability to become Nature’s independent, objective observers, partners.
For this, we need to consciously and methodically learn how to become similar, integrated into Nature to acquire a unique duality between our original “unfinished” nature, behavior, and the perfect, complete state we can learn from Nature.
This duality, comparative ability, and the conscious way we achieve it elevates us to the “truly Human” level of evolution, a creature that became similar to Nature by its own efforts, by free choice, consciously, in order to become Nature’s only objective, aware observer and partner in sustaining life and optimal development.
And this unique, very high task of reaching our evolutionary Human purpose starts in our generation!
