Surviving for the sake of our evolutionary Human purpose
Opinion from the Internet on the topic of Humanity saving itself by changing how we interact, connect, solve problems collectively:
“So you mean we care about humanity because it’s better for us and this approach can save our species. But what is the point? What will be happen if we save ourselves? Is it really rational to save humanity? Does humanity have any meaningful mission to do? If we have not any goal and we just care about ourselves because of our nature if we want to think rationaly this behavior is just a force of nature and there is no point or meaning for us and it’s not necessary to save ourselves.”
You are completely right, saving ourselves for our own sake only would be selfish.
We have such a self-serving primordial survival reflex in us by nature, like in any other animal. (Although we could say we are “dumber” than other animals as we consciously, intentionally jeopardize our own survival all the time).
But what most people don’t know yet, that we also have a predetermined evolutionary purpose in Nature’s system.
Which means that we are expected to “save ourselves” and continue our development not only for selfish survival, but in order to fulfill our unique, evolutionary, serving Human role in the system.
And as soon as we study and understand this role, as soon as we know what evolution expects from us, our attempts for survival become purposeful, altruistic, as we don’t act for our own sake any longer, but we merit being the “crowns of evolution”, justify ourselves being “truly Human”.
