The greatest challenge facing humanity

Question from the Internet:

“What are humans’ most challenges as time goes by?”

The greatest challenge we are facing is the understanding that we are not actually “standalone”, individually independent beings, that have any kind of personal free-choice, freedom to act, but that we are all individual cells of a single, fully integrated, and interdependent “Human superorganism” that has to act in unison, through selfless, mutually responsible, mutually complementing cooperation, making all calculations for the sake, for the benefit of the whole organism.

The pandemic and similar pressing, mounting, and threatening global problems are all reminders, hints from Nature that we will need to achieve similarity, alignment with its integral template if we want to survive.

Our Human uniqueness and advantage over all other parts, elements of the system is our conscious ability, opportunity to do so, instead of being integrated instinctively or becoming integrated by constant pressure and increasing finally intolerable suffering.

We are at a unique turning point in Human evolution when we received the chance to take our own development into our own hands, facilitating our own integration into Nature’s system through first integrating with each other — always a step ahead of being forced by evolution.

To make this transition smooth, most pain-free, and least unpleasant we need a unique, integral education that can help us understand and make us actually “viscerally” feel our total interdependence and mutual responsibility.
