Question from the Internet:
“What subject/field impacts and advances the progress of humanity the most, e.g., physics, maths, engineering, politics, healthcare, etc.?”
The most important subject/field that influences human development is a unique, empirical method, science that deals with human nature.
Human nature is the cause and everything else — society, economy, governance, culture, our usual sciences — are consequences of our human nature.
Thus dealing directly with the consequences and trying to find solutions through them misleads us, and pushes us into the usual, helplessly recurring vicious historic cycles. It is like trying to cure cancer with superficial, symptomatic treatment leaving cancer to progress until it becomes incurable.
Until we start looking at our inherent nature, until we recognize that the root cause of all the problems, crisis situations, wars and total inability to understand, let alone solve global problems is our inherently selfish, egocentric, individualistic and exploitative nature, we will continue to sleepwalk towards self-destruction.
This is why the only method we need is the above mentioned, unique and highly practical science that has been studying human nature in contrast to Nature’s perfectly balanced, mutually integrated system., With the help of this empirical, scientific method we can diagnose our “human cancer” and also, immediately apply the proper remedy.
And this remedy is about consciously, purposefully changing, further developing ourselves until we reach compatibility, seamless mutual integration with Nature above and against our inherent tendencies, behaviour and instincts.
This conscious, proactive and methodical self-development will make us truly Human beings: being similar to Nature against our instinctive nature and by that becoming Nature’s only fully conscious, integrated but also independent observers, partners.
