Our true evolutionary purpose

Question from the Internet:

“What’s most important from an evolutionary perspective: survival or procreation?”

Both of those aims, purposes belong to the animal level in Nature, while our other activities, aims in our consumerist society have no actual, evolutionary purpose at all.

We have to learn about our actual, Human evolutionary purpose and we have to consciously, proactively fulfill it to justify “being Human".

“Being Human" means consciously becoming similar to Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system in our relationships to each other, in human society — above and against our inherently blind, self-serving, egotistic, subjective and independent nature.

Through the developing contrast between our instinctive subjective, self-obsessed; and the acquired selfless, mutually responsible, mutually complementing, Nature-like behaviour, program we can start to attain and control the system as equal partners with Nature’s single evolutionary force.

Then we become Human, the peak of Nature’s evolution.
