The transition from war to cooperation

Question from the Internet:

“Is “from war to cooperation” the trend of human evolution to make humans great? Why?”

Yes, it is exactly this transition we are standing against in our generation.

We will have to repeat the same evolutionary breakthrough the initial single-cell organisms performed when they became multi-cellular organisms for a clear evolutionary advantage.

But while that unique breakthrough about 600 million years ago happened instinctively, unconsciously, we will have to perform that same incredible jump consciously by our own volition, purposefully, methodically execute the “merge” above and against our inherently “cancer-like”, individualistic, all-consuming, selfish instincts!

It is this conscious act against our instincts that will make us truly great, elevating us from a blind, automatic, “humanoid” existence to a conscious, fully developed Human state.

This integration into a single Human “super-organism” won’t happen by political ideology, religion, philosophy, or personal preference, but it will unfold by researching and attaining the direction, goal Nature’s evolution drives us to.

By such mutual integration between us, we will reach similarity with the rest of Nature’s fully integrated system. As a result of this similarity, we will reach integration into Nature and become the system’s only objective, conscious observers, witnesses, as we acquire a completely selfless, objective, collective and systemic viewpoint against, in contrast to our original egocentric, personal, subjective one.

And it is the contrast that will verify our perfect, objective “vision”.
