We are causing chaos with our inherent nature

Question from the Internet:

“Is it always our personal judgment system that creates chaos?”

Yes, it is. But it is nobody’s fault.

We are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic nature. We see the world according to our own egocentric, subjective perception, and calculate everything according to a fully self-centered “pleasure/pain” software.

We honestly believe that the way we see reality, the way we make decisions is the right one. We can’t see things from the perspective of others thus we can’t agree and we also can’t convince each other.

This is how we are programmed we had no free choice about it, thus nobody is to blame.

On the other especially now, as we evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent world, our “personal judgment”, our egocentric, subjective bias leads to chaos, and an increasing crisis pointing to seemingly inevitable self-destruction.

Our original program makes us act and behave like cancer in this integral system, that Nature’s laws that sustain the crucially important, fragile balance and homeostasis force on us.

So although the default state is not our fault, now we are required to recognize how incompatible, harmful our inherent program is in nature’s system. As a result — by using our unique, Human intellect that is capable of critical self-assessment, initiating self-change — we will need to take our future development into our own hands.

We are standing at unique crossroads when we have to switch from the blind, instinctive, egocentric, and subjective path to a conscious, methodical, selfless, and altruistic development — by aligning ourselves with Nature’s laws and evolution’s direction towards integration.
