The laws of Nature governing sustainable development

Question from the Internet:

“If the concept of sustainable development is understood by all, does it cooperate with regional balance in development?”

At the moment nobody understands sustainable development. In order to understand sustainable development, we would need to understand what it means to exist in Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system.

We would need to understand that we are all single cells of the same, fully integrated living organism that are absolutely responsible for one another.

Sustainable development means existing according to the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources where each and every element of the fully integrated system makes calculations and actions only for the benefit and optimal development of the whole system.

We do not understand this, we do not want to understand this because it is completely opposite to our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and exploitative nature.

Thus reaching sustainable development happens when we learn how to exist and behave above and against our inherent nature. This has nothing to do with any of our arbitrary, made-up ideologies and philosophies, we have to change and further develop ourselves according to Nature’s strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws.

When we reach such global sustainable development any individual or regional balance is simply part of that global balance and homeostasis that exists in this system.
