Our potential ability to become “truly Human" is our most valuable possession

Question from the Internet:

“Is knowledge the only thing no one can take away from you?”

I am sorry to say, but the knowledge we are capable of collecting, uploading by default is not very valuable. It is basically simple data our inherently self-serving, self-justifying “personal computer" uses for its instinctive, egocentric “pleasure/pain" calculations, for a bind day to day survival.

The only thing that is valuable and nobody can take away from us is our potential ability to become “truly Human" beings.

“Being Human" (Adam in Hebrew, originating from the expression “similar") means becoming similar to Nature through qualities. This means acquiring truly selfless, altruistic, unconditionally serving qualities, abilities above and against our inherently selfish, egotistic, exploitative inclinations.

Through that similarity we can integrate into Nature, acquiring full access to Nature’s infinite database, Wisdom, which will give us true, useful, accurate knowledge about the world and ourselves.
