Question from the Internet:
“Why is communication considered as the most important part of human interaction and learning?”
Our life depends on the interconnections between us.
Though we inherently perceive ourselves as unique, individual creatures, even believing that we could survive on our own, from Nature’s systemic point of view each Human being is a single, individual cell in an “organ” called Humanity, within Nature’s fully integrated body.
Thus anything that fosters, facilitates the all-important Human interconnections is crucial.
Especially as Human beings - contrary to all other parts in Nature - need to recognize and implement the life-giving interconnections, mutually responsible, mutually complementing cooperation consciously, building the connections by their own efforts. This is purposeful by evolution, being is to achieve our truly Human ability, becoming Nature’s conscious, integrated observers, partners.
This is why Humans have a qualitatively much more complex, evolved, unique communication called speech, to facilitate building the life-giving connections from within the opposite state - selfish, egotistic, individualism where we succeed, survive at each other’s expense.
Speech helps us to start communicating, connecting, learning from the disconnected state and slowly realize the need to the interconnections. Then again with the help of speech, interaction, mutual learning we can start building the interconnections to such a level, where we will communicate in a more internal manner, through thoughts, emotions, when speech, writing will lose their original significance.
