Overcoming the only obstacle to human social cooperation
Question from the Internet:
“What are the obstacles to human social cooperation, how do we overcome them?”
The only obstacle to human social cooperation is our own, inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and individualistic ego. It is this ego that drives us towards ruthless, exclusive overconsumption, accumulation of resources and profit for ourselves while we succeed at each other’s expense.
It is this insatiable, irrepressible, ever-growing ego that drove humanity’s recurring vicious cycles, and it is this human ego that is now driving us towards seemingly inevitable self-destruction.
While we started to see, even understand that in the globally, mutually integrated, fully interdependent world we evolved into only positive, sustainable, mutually complementing cooperation can help us, our ego simply does not allow people and nations to rise above their differences and work together.
We received very clear proof from the pandemic, we can see our destructive tendencies through wars, we can see how incapable we are even to discuss, comprehend such global threats as climate change, pollution, depleting water and food supply let alone finding any meaningful solutions for them.
By default, we all act and exist like cancer, and we are collectively sleepwalking towards global meltdown.
On the other hand, this has been purposeful by Nature’s evolution to create human beings with such a self-destructive inner program. This way we have free choice, a conscious ability to complete, direct our own human development. We have the ability, chance to recognize this “cancerous” inner program driving us instinctively and we can rise above our instincts and tendencies to acquire a new path of development, through a new “program”.
We can learn, copy from Nature the system’s totally selfless, altruistic, mutually responsible and mutually complementing behaviour, inclination for creating and sustaining life. We can harness Nature’s forces — all working for sustaining the general balance and homeostasis life depends on — to supplement, complement, upgrade our inherent nature.
This conscious self-development, conscious self-upgrade will elevate us to the “truly Human” level of evolution, when we become a “creature” that “recreates itself” in similarity with Nature above and against its own inherent program.
This is something very realistic and tangible and we have the necessary, purposeful and practical method to assist us in becoming “truly Human” here and now.
