Question from the Internet:
“What are the human advantages, disadvantages, strengths, and weaknesses?”
I am sorry that my answer is a bit indirect, but we do not need to look at ourselves as beings with advantages, disadvantages, strengths, and weaknesses.
We are the “products” of a lawful, deterministic, evolutionary Natural system, and everything we have in us is necessary and purposeful for the role, most optimal state evolution gave us birth for.
It is true, that by default we are born with a 100% egocentric, subjective, individualistic, and exploitative nature which makes us behave like cancer in Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system.
But without being opposite to, incompatible with Nature we would never be able to reach our final role and state of becoming Nature’s only conscious, integrated but at the same time independent observers, partners.
Only by starting from our complete opposition, incompatibility with Nature can we consciously, methodically integrate into the system by our own free choice and effort. Only this way can we achieve the unique duality between being “outsiders”, “harmers” of Nature and being fully integrated, adapted to Nature, which duality will give us the contrast, comparative research ability necessary for our evolutionary Human purpose.
We just need to learn who we are, why we have the qualities we are born with, what our predetermined role is in Nature and how we can achieve that.
