The present, seemingly unsolvable global crisis is the sign of true progress!

Question from the Internet:

“Is social progress going backwards, or does it just appear that way?”

It is both.

In terms of our old/present development, that is based on our inherently egocentric, self-serving, individualistic nature, we are going backwards, sinking into an unsolvable, deepening crisis that engulfs everything we do. We have exhausted this kind of blind, instinctive progress - that cares only about fulfilling the self at the expense of everything, everybody else - long time ago, we are just stubbornly prolonging the end-game right now.

On the other hand, from the perspective of Natural evolution this is forward progress. Our deepening crisis is like “birth pangs”, an entrance towards a completely new, this time conscious, proactive and purposeful Human development.

The threat of self-destruction, fear from an imminent global catastrophe - that is much more realistic, consciously sensed in our generation than ever before - serves as an evolutionary “alarm clock”, awakening at least a crucial necessary, “critical mass” of people, who will lead the revolutionary changes.

With the help of a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method these true pioneers will be able to learn - and subsequently pass on - how to exist in a globally integrated and interdependent world through mutually responsible and mutually complementing, selfless, altruistic connections, cooperation, above and against the original egotistic, exploitative nature.

We exist in a completely purposeful, deterministic Natural system, where everything leads to, points to a most optimal, final state we Humans have an active, partnering, conscious role in.
