Our shared purpose in life
Question from the Internet:
“What is your purpose in life and how can you be part of flourishing science and technology?”
My purpose in life is the same as everybody else’s — regardless of people knowing about this purpose yet or not. Nature’s evolution determined our collective purpose which is “to become truly Human beings”.
A “truly Human being” is one who consciously, purposefully, methodically becomes similar to Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system through building selfless, altruistic, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation with other Human beings — above and against our inherently egocentric, subjective, individualistic and exploitative nature.
This is reached through stages, first of all, recognizing our inherent nature as harmful, destructive, then we need to develop a strong, irrepressible desire for changing, upgrading ourselves from our inherently “cancer-like” form to become healthy cells in Humanity’s single, integrated “body” that is also seamlessly integrated into Nature.
And finally, we need to acquire the tools, means, and the right environment where this self-change, self-upgrade can unfold.
For this, we need a unique, all-encompassing, empirical natural science that can show us the technology of Human connection, which is a conscious, purposeful affair in contrast to other animals that integrate, cooperate by default, instinctively.
