Human nature as a Natural flaw

Question from the Internet:

“Is human behavior the most natural flaw?”

Human behavior — driven by a 100% selfish, individualistic, subjective, and destructive ego — is indeed a natural flaw.

We are neither sinful nor evil about our nature we had no free choice about. It is Nature’s evolution that created human beings, separated us from other developed primates through the human ego.

It is this insatiable, all-consuming ego that drove our incredible social, cultural and technological development while chimpanzees and orangutans for example remained virtually unchanged for millions of years.

But the same ego also makes us behave like cancer in Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system as we ruthlessly compete, consume everything for ourselves and survive, succeed at the expense of others and Nature.

Nature placed this “flaw”, this raw material in us purposefully, giving us a chance to complete, complement our Human development by ourselves. After recognizing the destructive, self-destructive nature of our ego — which is unfolding in our generation on a mass scale — we can start a fully conscious, purposeful, and methodical process of “upgrading” our operating software with a “Natural upgrade”, learning how to neutralize, complement our egos with Nature’s altruistic, unconditionally serving, mutually complementing intention.

It is this consciously performed “Natural upgrade” that will make us “truly Human”: acting, existing above and against our instincts in similarity, compatibility with Nature.
