Humanity’s unique evolutionary purpose
Question from the Internet:
“An identical Earth with the same timeline is created but with one change that you get to choose as long as it is within human understanding. What is the one thing you change and why?”
This is a very important question, as the idea that we can save ourselves — after we destroyed Earth — by migrating to, colonizing other planets is gaining traction in our days.
So in order to fare better on other planets — or perhaps still reverse our seemingly inevitable self-destruction here on Earth — we need to understand only one thing:
Contrary to our inherently misguided, egocentric, subjective belief that we are standalone beings with independent freedom and right who can do whatever they want, we are inevitably integrated parts of Nature’s closed, integral, interdependent system.
It does not matter what arbitrary human philosophy, ideology, our religions invented through millennia, from Nature’s point of view humanity is a single entity that has to be mutually integrated within itself, and as a result, has to be seamlessly integrated into Nature.
Only when we achieve such mutual, global, human integration through the reached similarity we also reach integration into Nature will we understand our actual, predetermined role in the system. Only then will we understand what our true, natural, comfortable necessities and the available resources are.
The fact that we have to achieve this integration consciously, purposefully, above and against our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, ruthlessly competitive, and exploitative nature gives us our unique, Human evolutionary advantage over other parts of Nature that are blindly, instinctively integrated into the system.
This is how we can achieve our unique, evolutionary Human purpose in Nature — to become the system’s only conscious, fully integrated but at the same time independent observers and partners.
