Human development is part of Natural evolution
Question from the Internet:
“Do you agree that we are the product of human evolution?”
I would refine what you said, saying that Humanity is the product of Natural evolution. Within Natural evolution Humanity had a very unique role to play, so Human evolution is very different from how any other part of Nature develops.
All other parts of Nature - in the inanimate, vegetative and animate level - instinctively flow together with Nature’s overall development, never leaving the boundaries of Nature’s closed, integral system and its laws that sustain balance and homeostasis. Humanity on the other hand has been developing through a unique vacuum, as if outside of Nature’s integral system and its laws.
How much Humanity is incompatible with Nature, and how much this incompatibility is harmful has only become completely obvious in our times. It is now that our excessively consuming, ruthlessly competitive, “cancer-like” development has reached a certain threshold.
We reached the brink of irreversible damage to Nature and to ourselves. We reached a point, where if we continue developing through our inherently egocentric, individualistic, exploitative nature/program we will inevitably self-destruct.
The only solution, escape towards survival is by consciously, methodically adjusting, aligning Human development to Nature’s evolutionary plan. We need to rebuild Human society on Nature’s integral template, starting with unprecedented, positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, cooperation. At the same time we have to scale our consumption down to the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources.
As everything else our initial incompatibility, opposition, “cancer-like” progress is purposeful by evolution. Human beings are destined to become Nature’s fully conscious, partnering elements, fully understanding, attaining Nature’s laws, cause and effect processes and evolution’s plan.
This requires contrast, comparative research. This is why we had to start from an opposite, incompatible state so we could adjust, adapt ourselves to the system by our own conscious efforts.
We live in a very unique period when this conscious awakening, transition starts!
