The great Human paradox

Today we entered the greatest - and most explosive - paradox of Human history.

Our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and individualistic nature - that drives us towards excessive exploitation of everything and everyone, success and survival at each other’s expense - has become completely incompatible with the globally integrated, totally interdependent world we have evolved into.

While our insatiable, competitive ego served as a useful engine through history, fueling our explorations, creations, inventions, development, in this global, integral system - which Nature’s evolution necessitates - the ego is behaving like cancer.

We are receiving a lot of “notifications”, “lessons” from Nature - especially now through the Coronavirus pandemic - that we can’t escape being integral parts of the Natural system, and that if we don’t adapt, reach compatibility with the Natural laws keeping balance and homeostasis, we will self-destruct.

So we urgently need a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method that can not only teach us, but help us feel, how they mutually responsible, mutually complementing connections, cooperation, and by scaling down to a lifestyle within the optional parameters of natural necessities and available resources we can not only save ourselves, but rise to a qualitatively much higher, collective existence.
