It doesn’t matter who drills hole on the wall of the common boat — we will all drown!

The most mind-boggling experience, revelation of the pandemic had been the utter inability of countries to work together, to adjust, coordinate their responses to the virus infection.

Our inherently egocentric, individualistic, subjective inner program is against any true, positive, sustainable connections, cooperation.

We connect as long as we benefit from the connection. The moment the selfish benefit ceases we disconnect. Most of the connections, alliances, unions in this world are against a third party, to defeat a common enemy, business competitor.

In order to create true, positive, sustainable global connection, cooperation between Humans we would need to find an overwhelming reason, incentive that would neutralize, overcome everything that separates, rejects us from others, making us connect despite that constant distrust, animosity, exclusive competitive spirit.

At this stage, in the growing, general, global crisis we are sinking into we can easily find such a reason, goal: collective survival!

We need to sense that we are truly on the same, global boat that is sinking fast and only through mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation can we save and redirect this common boat.

It truly doesn’t matter “who is drilling holes underneath whom”, the whole boat sinks and we all drown! It doesn’t matter which markets fall, where a large war breaks out, we will all suffer as a result, this is how integral system work!

And even when we managed to survive the present crisis, imminent self-destruction through global unprecedented, purposeful cooperation we can’t let go, as Nature’s integral system and its laws sustaining the general balance, homeostasis obligate us to continue the interconnections.

Then, when we stabilized the global cooperation for the sake of survival, we will start to reveal much greater, qualitatively higher benefits of this cooperation.
