The next 10 years will decide human survival

Question from the Internet:

“Based on your perception of the current society and the behavior of the current generation, what future trends do you expect to see in 10 years?”

With our present, inherently self-centered, narcissistic, subjective, and individualistic behavior, with the ruthless competition where knowingly, unknowingly we all survive, succeed at each other’s expense, if we do not change, we will find ourselves in a very rude recognition, harsh awakening much sooner than 10 years.

In the globally integrated, fully interdependent world we evolved into, with our present direction, behavior we all behave, exist like cancer — destroying everything including ourselves.

OUr woeful responses, “solution” to the pandemic, our non-existing discussion, solutions for climate change, and all other pressing global problems we totally prove to ourselves that we have no right to exist in Nature’s integral system since we do not know, ignore, break Nature’s strict laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on.

Nature is a ruthless judge since its laws are strict, unforgiving, and immutable.

Thus either we humbly learn, accept and adopt these “black and white” laws of Nature — building Nature-like mutual integration between us while scaling our lifestyle down to the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources — or we will not survive, not even 10 years.
