We are programmed to live for profit, excessive consumption, and now we need to reprogram ourselves

Question from the internet:

“Why is everything in our society driven by making profits?”

Because this model fits most our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, ruthlessly competitive nature. By nature we are all "raw capitalistic”, consuming excessively, succeeding at the expense of others.

We are all programmed like this but there is a difference in the hunger, the willingness to sacrifice ourselves and others to get what we want. This differentiates people, creating the usual pyramid model we can observe in Human society.

According to Nature’s evolutionary program we have a much higher purpose, goal than to make our life’s purpose to hoard profit, resources, material possessions only. And as the pandemic and the evolving crisis dismantles the present consumerist system we won’t have any other choice but to research and learn that higher purpose, goal.

According to evolution we can become Nature’s fully conscious, “truly Human” observers, partners. We can reveal and use all the infinite resources, blueprints Nature’s perfect system possesses.

But for that we need to go through a unique educational process in order to become similar to Nature in to integrate into the system through that similarity.

Which means that we need to adjust, fine tune our original “raw Capitalistic” nature, program to fit Nature’s “Communistic” system that is built on selfless, altruistic, mutually responsible, mutually complementing connections, cooperation.

The unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method can help us achieve this without the usual coercion, oppression, scaremongering, misleading propaganda.
