The common purpose needed for Human survival
An opinion from the Internet on Humanity’s unity:
“To create a group identity encompassing the whole of humanity you need to know what humanity is! An ideology based upon a singular cultural history will, in my opinion, never attain this goal.
In order to achieve this goal, I see the need to address, understand and articulate fully what a human being is. Without an axiomatic universal definition of a human being, there will never be a base on which to create a singular cultural history.”
Yes, you are right. We all need to learn, understand and subscribe to a general idea, the standard of what “Humanity” is and what our common purpose and goal in existence are.
Only such a common platform and understanding can support and fuel co-existence and mutually complementing cooperation — above and despite individual, national uniqueness and everything else that seemingly separates us from each other.
If we can find such a “common nominator”, a common purpose that has the strength to keep us together above all the diversity and differences of opinions that are not suppressed nor are erased, then all the diversity, disputes, questions and answers will only strengthen our unity, propelling us forward.
There remains the question of course, of where to find that all-encompassing common purpose, an identity that has the strength to keep us together. Here, unique, empirical natural scientists — who have been studying human nature in contrast to Nature’s system for millennia — suggest that we have to learn, “borrow” our common Human purpose from Nature’s system, from evolution’s deterministic plan.
Then we will not make the usual mistakes we have been doing all through history, trying to invent everything through our own, inherently subjective, egocentric and thus misguided intellect and emotions.
