Question from the Internet:
“Should we be working to transcend the human condition, given that we are an imperfect species?”
You are right. The meaning of our life is to recognize that we are “imperfect” and then find a way to take our own development into our hands to complete human evolution and become “truly Human”.
It is Nature’s evolution that gave birth to us with an “unfinished”, or “beta software”, making us incompatible with Nature’s system with an inherently selfish, egocentric, subjective, and individualistic inner program.
It is this program — which we have been blindly following from the beginning, it is the constantly growing, intensifying human ego, that has been causing all the previous historic, and present problems, recurring vicious cycles that now threaten us with outright self-destruction.
This dire and very volatile present is supposed to awaken in us a new ability, a unique ability for critical self-assessment and the need, the ability to consciously, methodically change ourselves. We have to start developing ourselves by proactively harnessing Nature’s evolutionary force in order to make us similar to Nature’s system, facilitating our reintegration in it.
It is all purposeful according to Nature’s deterministic evolutionary plan, as only this way could the system make it possible for humans to have true free choice, and for us to become Nature’s only conscious, fully integrated, and at the same time independent observers and partners.
We are living in Humanity’s most unique generation where this conscious change occurs, where we start becoming “truly Human” — a being that becomes similar to Nature through its own efforts, consciously, above, and against inherent instincts.
