The most powerful human on Earth

Question from the Internet:

“How can I be the most powerful human on Earth?”

The answer might sound like a paradox, but we can understand it if we look at our present evolutionary conditions and if we properly interpret what “survival of the fittest” actually means.

We have evolved into a fully integrated and interdependent world — in truth we have always existed in Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system, but we only recently started to come to terms with it as our human system has also become global and integral.

In this integral, interdependent system we are all like single cells of the same body, with the same absolute mutual responsibility towards each other as the cells of our biological bodies.

As a result more and more people also started to understand that the previous understanding of “survival of the fittest” — that it is the strongest, most cruel that survives — is actually false. The strongest, most cruel, that tries to survive, accumulate resources, and profit at the expense of the others is like cancer that destroys everything in a fully integrated system.

Thus with our present aspirations to become the literally strongest, to overcome others, and succeed at each other’s expense we are actually the weakest, most harmful link, element of the system.

And the strongest part, element of the system, the strongest human being in the world is the one that understands Nature’s laws of integration and becomes the most useful, selfless, altruistic, unconditionally serving link in the whole network. That person gains complete, benevolent control over the whole system!
