Only collectively can we become truly Human — similar to Nature

An opinion from the Internet about Nature and Humanity:

  1. My humble observations: Nature’s “balance” includes one flower or tree developing height or broad leaves to prevent the acquisition of sunlight by another, or taking the nutrients from the soil to prevent nutrition from another. The carnivore seeks out the week and helpless to feed its own young. Contrarily, the bee and the flower work in perfect harmony, appearing as a single organism. it is this dichotomy of constant battle, interspersed with cooperation and synergy that creates the beauty and strength that is the variety of life. Life is stronger and more prevalent as a result of the competition for personal resource acquisition.
  2. I believe that It is to each BE-ing to develop selflessness, objectivity, and attainment of balance and harmony as it will. Arranging human relations is also best left to the individual since all populations are culturally different. Resources will grow as human technology grows. Life has always expanded, as its nature compels. The universe is vast in resources, even in our little solar system. The available resources sphere will grow with humankind unless bureaucracies and politics restrict that growth for the disingenuous attempt to create “equality” or “equity”.

I fully agree that when we look at nature we see constant struggle destruction and rebuilding. And if we had the ability to observe our own biological body on the cellular level, this war, destruction, rebuilding would be even more mind-boggling.

Still, when the whole picture comes together we see an overall harmony, life is streaming as each little change adds to the general flow.

We also know how in nature all the still, vegetative, and animate levels seamlessly interconnect and complement the “circle of life”. It is true that predators kill, but they do so in order to help that circle of life, eating only what they need while leaving the carcass for secondary predators and scavengers. They also hunt the “weakest link” from the prey and by that they facilitate the natural selection. We also know that if a predator goes missing, the whole chain, the circle is broken, the prey overpopulated, and then destroys the natural habitat and the whole habitat dies.

Humans are outside of this overall balance, we do not facilitate the “circle of life” as we overconsume and destroy as we like, without actually understanding the system. This is purposeful from evolution as our role is to learn natural integration consciously, so we could fulfill our unique human evolutionary role, to become the conscious, benevolent observers, parters of the whole system.

This is what we can achieve by developing that unique, selfless, objective human observer in us which is going to a collective one, as only mutually, collectively can we develop the necessary selfless, altruistic qualities without which there is no “nature-like” integration. Alone, individually we all inevitably remain selfish, egoistic, opposite to nature.
