The conditions for building a Type 1 civilization

Question from the Internet:

“The nations of the world must put their differences aside in order to become a type 1 civilization before climate change destroys the planet. What are some of the first steps we take?”

In order to become a Type 1 civilization, we need a unique, purposeful, and highly practical educational method.

We need to learn, moreover, we have to feel through immediate emotional impressions — after all, we are first of all emotional creatures — what our inevitable interdependence on this planet means.

We need to receive the right tool to build the unprecedented, selfless, altruistic integration with each other that is necessary for humanity to become similar to and thus integrated into Nature’s perfectly balanced system.

We need such a unique education as by default we are incompatible with Nature, since our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, and subjective nature drives us towards ever-increasing overconsumption and towards success, survival at each other’s and Nature’s expense.

Only when we reach similarity with Nature’s integral system through consciously, proactively, and methodically integrating with each other can we find our unique, rightful place in nature’s system and start using all that the Natural system has to offer — as long as we use them within the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources.
