Natural, instinctive “role play" in Nature
An opinion from the Internet about the presumed inherent injustice in Nature:
“You say that Nature is perfectly balanced and we should build Human society accordingly. So in the same manner as the non human alpha male instinctively gathers all the females and the richest kills unto himself through physical domination, so should act the human male, who is genetically predisposed to gathering all of the females and the richest kills on to himself?”
Right now we are projecting our own, misguided, egocentric and subjective Human ideologies, worldview on Nature, trying to identify patterns in Nature that are similar to Human society.
We instinctively “humanize" Nature as we can’t look at the world in any other way, we need to understand whatever we look at through these patterns we know, we are familiar with.
We have no idea why an alpha male in Nature behaves in a certain way, what purpose it serves.
Still, if you want a “logical", natural explanation for the alpha male animal gathering females and best food around, it is because that male was naturally selected (through the natural, instinctive process Nature’s evolution defines) to have the best genetic makeup and thus it has the “natural right" to procreate through as many females as possible, on the best nutrition possible, in order to facilitate the best genetic inheritance of the species.
And if you want a corresponding example from the ideal Human society that is built on Nature’s template — all performing their most optimal role for the collective and receiving everything they need, deserve to perform that role - then for example a miner, farmer, performing the most difficult, physical work will receive the best quality food in great quantity so they can stay healthy, and be able to perform their necessary task day after day.
What we know about animals that they act automatically, instinctively how Nature programmed them, they don’t threaten Nature’s overall balance, they don’t ransack and abandon their natural habitat unless a natural catastrophes, human interference forces them to.
The so-called “circle of life" is very carefully governed by Natural laws. Whatever we observe in instinctive Nature has nothing to do with how Humans behave, intentionally harming others, intentionally succeeding at the expense of each other while destroying the Natural environment that gives us life. Usually we draw parallels with Nature to justify ourselves.
But it won’t help us, as Nature doesn’t care about our philosophies, justifications, since it is a “ruthlessly lawful" system. And as long as we don’t know, ignore, break those laws we keep punishing ourselves and progress towards self-destruction.
When we adapted ourselves to Nature’s system by following its laws, becoming fully compatible with it, then we will understand why animals behave the way they behave.
What roles each of us will fulfill, in what manner, and what we need, deserve for that role will only become clear, when we achieved intimate integration with Nature, through the perfect, Nature-like integration each other, like cells of the same body.
Then we won’t need any of our present misguided ideologies, philosophies, religions, “spiritual teachings" to guide is as we will all matter of factly sense Nature’s laws and will act accordingly.
