The ideal Human being from Nature’s point of view

Question from the Internet:

“What would mother nature’s ideal human, who lived in an all-natural environment be and how would they differ from us, modern humans?”

There is nothing mystical in this.

We are all integral parts of Nature, we are born from Nature, we exist and evolve with the system, regardless of what we think about ourselves.

Thus all of Nature’s laws — that control integration, that sustain the general balance and homeostasis life and optimal development depends on — are also obligatory for us.

We need to look at ourselves as individual cells in a single, living Human “superorganism” that is also a mutually integrated part of Nature.

So an ideal human being — from Nature’s point of view — has to behave like any cell or organ in our biological bodies: acting, existing in a totally selfless, unconditionally serving, mutually responsible mutually complementing manner, where calculations for the whole collective always override any individual, selfish calculations.

Now, of course, this is totally opposite, unacceptable to our inherently misguided, illusory, individualistic, egocentric, and subjective consciousness, worldview. Moreover, this is not our fault, evolution gave us this consciousness and worldview.

We are supposed to become — according to evolution’s deterministic plan, relentless flow — Nature’s only conscious, proactively, purposefully integrated but at the same time independent observers and partners.

So while we are born with an unnatural, opposite mindset, inner program to Nature’s, we also received the intellect and ability to achieve conscious integration with each other and with Nature above and against our original consciousness, mindset. This is how we can reach that unique, Human evolutionary role Nature assigned to us.

So from Nature’s point of view, the ideal Human being is the one that consciously, purposefully becomes like Nature above and against one’s own inherent nature.
