In a global world, we are all like individual cells of a single body

Question from the Internet:

“What is your role in globalization as an individual?”

First of all, we would need to understand what “true globalization” is.

It is not something “man-made”, it is not about the markets, financial institutions, industry, trade, culture, or media.

We evolved into a globally interconnected network as Nature’s evolution obligates such changes since Nature’s developmental plan pushes the whole system — we are integral part of — towards the most optimal integration.

In this new, global, and interdependent system our individual roles resemble the roles of individual cells in a single living body.

This will not come to us naturally, as such a notion is against our inherently self-centered, self-justifying, proudly and fiercely individualistic nature. Nevertheless, we do not have a choice as we have to follow Nature’s laws that keep the balance and homeostasis life depends on. There are no appeals, bribes in relation to strict, unchanging Natural laws.

This is why we need a unique, “global, integral” education, so we could understand and feel what “true globalization” is so we could proactively, consciously adapt to it.
