Humanity’s mutual attitude changing nature

Question from the Internet:

“How do our attitudes to each other impact nature?”

Human beings are born from nature, and we are integral parts of nature, regardless of what we think or believe. Moreover, we are also integral and interdependent parts of global human society. In effect, we are all but individual cells of a vast, human organism that is also an “organ” in nature’s body.

We can philosophize about, we can protest or ignore this, but we cannoty go against nature’s laws. And since our present human system is built on arbitrary human ideologies and systems, that presume that human beings are independent of nature’s mutual integration and can do whatever we like, our human system is now falling apart and we are also desperately helpless in understanding and solve the mounting global problems that threaten our existence.

We know the nature is built on homeostasis and that each part mutually support each other. We know that our biological body is based on the same principles, that health and survival needs the “mutual guarantee” – selfless and unconditional mutual integration and cooperation – between our cells and organs.

So why do we think that human society – another living system in nature’s network – can ignore and break the laws of nature and go against this “mutual guarantee”? How can we convince ourselves that we can survive when our lifestyle and the way we relate to each other resembles cancer?!

Humanity has a very special and predetermined role in nature’s system.

We have to become the system’s only fully conscious, seamlessly integrated and at the same time, independent observers and equal partners. We can even say, our purpose and role is to become the vast natural system’s conscious mind and “guardian”.

This requires a unique “collective Human consciousness and intellect” that is built out of billions of diverse and seemingly incompatible elements – human beings – that learn how to co-exist and selflessly cooperate – above and against our inherent nature. But we need something else in order to be different from animals that are instinctively and unconsciously integrated into the system.

This is why our inherent nature is 100% egocentric, subjective and individualistic. We all sense ourselves separate from others and nature. We all try to survive and succeed and survive at the expense of others and nature.

If we achieved nature-like mutual integration and coexistence above and against our inherent nature in a fully conscious and purposeful way, we could become suitable to fulfill our unique, evolutionary Human role and purpose in the system. Our role requires a unique “duality” and contrast, sensing both our inherent opposition to nature and also the similarity we can develop together.

If we learn and practice a mutually accepting, selflessly and unconditionally serving attitude and existence towards one another, we build a nature-like “mutual guarantee” between us. As a result, we achieve the necessary similarity with and integration into nature’s system.

And through that similarity and integration, and with the help of the fully conscious attainment of how the system works, we can start our positive partnering and overseeing role in nature’s system, bringing everything into balance and harmony. This is the single reason why we are born into this world.
