There is a unique science that can help us build a better society

Question from the Internet:

If you could change society with science for the better today and forever, regardless of the laws that exist today, say, “approaching a utopia,” how would it look to you?

There is no “utopia” or any mysticism in this, actually.

If we followed a unique, empirical natural science that has been studying human nature in contrast to Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system for millennia, we could achieve a perfect human society within a short time.

This actual and very practical science explains to us that the root cause of all the problems humanity has ever encountered and is still encountering today is the same inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and exploitative nature that drives all of us.

And since this inherent nature has been worsening and intensifying through human history — reaching its peak strength in our generation — we have reached a very real threat of self-destruction today.

Our self-destruction, the total collapse of our human system, is already underway, but a great explosion — putting the nails into our coffins sooner than later — could be initiated any moment from many seemingly unconnected causes in many seemingly unconnected locations.

With our inherent nature, we are totally incompatible with Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system, in which strict and unforgiving laws govern the general balance and homeostasis that life depends on.

On the other hand, human beings are the only creatures in Nature with the conscious ability to recognize their own nature as destructive and incompatible. We can also initiate unique self-development and self-upgrade that leads to purposefully and consciously achieved compatibility with Nature.

Thus, with the help of the above-mentioned empirical science and its practical method, we can first recognize the root cause of our problems inside ourselves. Then we can also start correcting ourselves and develop a new human system that is similar to Nature’s system with its balance and mutual integration.

As a result, on the merit of adapting ourselves to Nature consciously and purposefully, above and against our inherent nature, we will become Nature’s only conscious, fully integrated and at the same time independent observers and equal partners.

This is something we can start doing here and now, without waiting for increasing and more and more intolerable suffering to force us to change.
