The foundation of human nature

Question from the Internet:

“What is the foundation of human nature? What does it entail everybody to be doing?:

The foundation of human nature is an insatiable desire for selfish, subjective pleasures, operated by a unique, egocentric software that constantly making automatic calculations regarding how to get closer to pleasures and how to escape from pain.

Everything we think and do is instinctively, automatically controlled by the above, regardless of whether we are aware of this or not. Most of us are unaware, thus we believe we act consciously, we believe we can actually do good to others selflessly, but in truth, we can act only for our own sake and knowingly or unknowingly we survive, succeed at the expense of others.

This means that our human nature in its original form, with its original software, is self-destructive as it became exactly like cancer in the fully integrated and interdependent world we evolved into.

This is the root cause of all the problems we are encountering today which are problems we are desperately helpless against.

And since we evolved into a global, integral world as a result of Nature’s evolution we can do nothing about it.

Thus we have only one choice, consciously, methodically hanging, upgrading our original software so we would become able to make calculations for the sake of others, for the sake of the whole collective, for the whole Natural system above and against our inherently selfish, subjective calculations.

For this, we need a special, purposeful, and highly practical educational method.
