We are “WE"

Opinion from the Internet:

“You keep talking about “we" as if humanity was some kind of a common entity. However I am not “we"!”

This is indeed so from our original, inherently individualistic, subjective viewpoint, as we all see ourselves as separate, independent beings.

On the other hand Nature puts increasing pressure on us with the globally integrated, interdependent world we are struggling with, trying to make us understand that from the natural system’s point of view we are a single entity, as individual cells of the same organism with total, mutual responsibility towards each other.

This is why we need a unique educational method that can teach us, moreover help us feel that we are actually “we", and our only true, independent free choice is learning how we can as soon as possible seamlessly integrate into this “we".

Although it is very unpleasant to learn, hear that are all born inherently self-centered, subjective and egotistic, a unique empirical natural science — which claims this about us — also explains that it is not dystopian, we are not evil or sinful.

Nature — by giving us birth with such a “raw, unfinished program" — gave us the free choice and opportunity to finish our own development, by that also fully understanding Nature’s system and it’s overall purpose.
