The most irrational thing we can do is following our own logic, reason

Question from the Internet:

“What irrational behaviors cost humans the most?”

The most irrational behaviour which costs us the most is following our own logic, reason, rational thinking. We can see how fast to day how everything we created, used slips through our fingers and turns to dust.

While it sounds like a paradox, since we are all born with an inherently egocentric, subjective mind, intellect, perception of reality, whatever we invent, conclude with our inherent logic, rational thinking is by default incorrect.

In fact until now, we have all been living in an illusion that is painted by our inherent mind, for millennia we have been building and destroying, building and destroying artificial concepts and constructs that are incompatible with the true — Natural — reality.

Of course this is as difficult to accept, comprehend as the famous scene in the movie “Matrix" when Neo realizes that all of his life up to that point was a software generated dream.

In our case it is exactly the same, except that our false dream — that now is turning into a nightmare — is generated by our own Ego.

But we have no other choice but to accept this brutal recognition, as from now on Nature's system, its strict laws sustaining balance and homeostasis won't allow us to return to the previous dream. Humanity has to grow up and start existing, acting according to the laws, principles of the “real world", fulfilling our predetermined, integral cogwheel role in Nature.

This is why we urgently need a unique purposeful and highly practical educational method which can teach us how to become compatible compatible with Nature's integrated system — against and above our ego's resistance.
