“Interesting” facts about humanity

Question from the Internet:

“Do you have anything interesting, odd, or thought-provoking about the world or humanity that you would be willing to share with me?”

Yes, I do.

We find ourselves in an explosive and seemingly unsolvable paradox between our inherent nature and the Natural and evolutionary conditions we exist.

On the one hand, we are all 100% self-serving, egocentric, subjective and individualistic by birth. We all care only about ourselves and try to succeed at the expense of others.

On the other hand, we evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent world, where we all became like single cells of the same living organism.

So we are totally incompatible with the Natural system we exist in and evolve with, and as a result, we are constantly inching towards seemingly inevitable self-destruction.

Our actual and imminent survival depends on recognizing this fact and as a result of this recognition, we will have to proactively, willingly and purposefully change and further develop ourselves until we become compatible with nature’s laws and system.
