Learning how to measure life correctly

Question from the Internet:

“Why do we measure our worth by what we do and what we have?”

Because we do not know of any other way of measuring life.

As a result of our inherently egocentric, subjective consciousness, perception of reality we consider the whole Universe revolving around our self.

We can’t perceive, measure anything else but what relates to our self-serving, self-justifying calculations.

This is how our original “software” works, basically locking all of us into our own, very limited, distorted, introverted dark caves.

We can escape these more and more insufferable caves, this purposeless, pointless life — where we survive day to day running after immediate selfish pleasures while running away from personal pain — by learning how to live, exist, sense, and perceive through each other’s desires and viewpoint, literally escaping our misery through others towards a perfect, selfless, objective consciousness and perception of reality, finding a life that is unbounded by the egocentric, subjective limitations of time, space and physical motion — while still living in the same biological body here and now.
