The war with ourselves
Question from the Internet:
“What does it mean if you are at war with yourself? How do you stop?”
The war with ourselves does not stop. In truth, we haven’t even started this war yet, but when it starts, it will be our “natural existence”.
We are all born with a 100% self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, subjective, and exploitative nature. As a result, we are in constant, ruthless competition, war with everything that is outside of the interest of the self.
This egoistic, instinctive external war reached such an extent today, we are in such a mutual rejection, hate, cold, or “hot” war with each other and Nature, that we reached the brink of seemingly inevitable self-destruction.
Our future problem-solving ability, our collective human survival in Nature’s fully integrated, lawful, and deterministic system depends on building positive, sustainable, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation with each other.
And in order to do that, we have to honestly, humbly recognize our cancer-like inner nature and learn how to fight it, neutralize it control it, so we can unite and sustain unity above and against our nature.
Only through such unique inner duality, constant contrast, tension can we build the special “Human Superorganism” which will facilitate our life, sense of existence to rise to an unprecedented, qualitatively much higher level.
Just like individual cells merging to build multi-cellular organisms provided nature with a huge evolutionary jump, by selfish, destructive individuals consciously building, sustaining a single Human entity with its “collective intellect” will propel us to a completely new state of Human evolution, providing a sense of existence above the egocentric, subjective, individualistic limitations of time, space and physical motion.
