Is our next state of human development a utopia or something natural?

Question from the Internet:

“How can humanity achieve a utopian world such as is shown in numerous future kinds of literature and films? One world, one people, one earth, truly united.”

The thing is, we will reach such a “utopian” state whether we want it or not. We are in a Natural evolutionary process that is relentlessly progressing towards a most optimal, seamlessly integrated state for the whole natural system above and against its diversity.

Moreover, we can see that the rest of Nature — apart from humanity — is already in such a finely balanced and mutually integrated state where each and every element — from the smallest particles to vast galaxies — exist only for the sake of contributing to and sustaining the general balance and homeostasis that life depends on.

Humanity has a very special part to play in this process. It is not “accidental” that we think we are at the peak of Natural evolution. Our evolutionary role and purpose are truly astonishing and unparalleled.

We are supposed to become the sole conscious mind and an active partner of the whole Natural reality.

In order to reach an unprecedented state of being seamlessly integrated into Nature — through seamlessly integrating with each other — while also retaining a fully aware, independent observer capability, we are born with a nature and “inner program” that is opposite to Nature’s.

While in Nature, everything is instinctively and automatically mutual integrated, and all parts only serve the whole, we are born inherently selfish, egocentric, and subjective, and we only serve ourselves — at the expense of others and Nature. But we also have a unique Human consciousness and intellect that is capable of recognizing our inherent incompatibility with Nature and initiating unique self-corrections and self-upgrade through which we can achieve the above-mentioned “dual state” of being integrated and also independent in Nature.

We can’t do our own “self-upgrade” by ourselves, but we can learn how to harness Nature’s evolutionary and governing forces to do that for us with our willing and conscious agreement and participation.

This is something that is going to unfold; actually, it is already unfolding. The gradual and inevitable collapse of our civilization — built upon and for our inherently selfish, egoistic and individualistic nature — is the preparation for the unique and conscious transition we have to go through in our development.

And from here, the path to reach the predetermined final state splits into two. We can continue our blind and instinctive behaviour and attempts to build self-destructive systems until intolerable suffering awakens us and teach us how we should exist.

But we also have the ability to prevent such a “path of suffering” and start our inevitable self-correction and conscious self-development willingly, purposefully and by our own proactive efforts.

We can become a single, united Humanity in accordance with nature’s laws and template of mutual integration with the help of a unique, purposeful and practical educational method. In the end, we are not talking about some utopia or mysticism here; we simply have to become compatible with Nature’s perfect, life-creating and life-nurturing system as dictated by Nature’s laws and evolution’s relentless flow.

The only question is how we participate in this process — being dragged along against our will, or initiating and actually enjoying the changes and the qualitatively much higher life experience we achieve.
