Human purpose

Question from the Internet:

“Does it sometimes feel to you that humanity (mankind) is hanging around aimlessly?”

This is definitely true from our point of view, but we have a very precise, distinguished, evolutionary Human purpose from Nature’s evolution’s point of view.
So far we exhausted our “purpose" in life through trying to fulfill the animate and social desires of food, sex, family, wealth, power, fame and knowledge.
Now — especially as our modern human system based on chasing the above mentioned desires is collapsing — more and more people are searching for something more, something more substantial to justify our human existence.
Thus the time has come for us to research, learn and fulfill the overall, all-encompassing purpose of human existence Nature is pushing us towards. If we become conscious, willing partners with Nature in this process them we won’t have to go through increasing crisis, further blows and intolerable suffering, but we can in a swift, pleasant way fulfill our unparalleled, irreplaceable human role in Nature’s system, by that justifying our existence above other animals.
This unique Human role is to become Nature’s only conscious, integrated but independent observers, partners by learning how to purposefully integrate into Nature’s system above and against our inherently egocentric and individualistic, subjective nature. Then in the contrast between instinctive incompatibility and contagious compatibility we will fully understand Nature’s system and all the cause and effect processes that drive the system including ourselves.
