The right way of coexistence

Question from the Internet:

“What is the most acceptable way to coexist?”

What we do know — as a result of the vast historic experience and our contemporary state — is that whatever arbitrary ideologies, philosophies, and religions we have come up with so far are not the most acceptable way of coexistence.

It does not matter what we try, what combinations of ideologies, systems, and religions we try, we always end up with a corrupt, self-destructive human civilization that explodes.

Right now, we are standing ahead of the explosion of our own civilization — this time distorting, corrupting “liberal, parliamentary democracy” and “free-market capitalism”

This is actually good, as hopefully this last failure will finally make us humble, help us recognize that instead of our inherently egocentric, self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and exploitative “inventions” we need to look for some “absolute standard”. We need to look for a template that is not “human-made” and can help us to rebuild our civilization and survive against our own destructive nature.

And we can find this absolute standard, the necessary template in Nature’s finely balanced, mutually integrated system, where the general balance and homeostasis — strict laws govern — create and sustains life.

We will be able to find true solutions to our present problems and prevent new ones, we will be able not only safeguard our continuing existence but elevate ourselves to a qualitatively much higher, collective Human existence as soon as we learn how to build Nature-like, positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing integration — above and against our original nature.

It is specifically this conscious change, conscious correction, development against and above our inherent nature that will make us “truly Human” beings: similar to Nature’s system in contrast to our instinctive nature.
