We can choose the swift, easy path of transition!

Question from the Internet:

“What’s the top way for you, not someone else, but you, to keep your faith in mankind?”

I am a “scientists-kind” of person, so “faith” wouldn’t suffice to remain positive about our future prospects.

Fortunately there exists a solid, empirical, Natural science I am studying, that can explain to us why we had to reach the present “deadlock”, the dead-end of the instinctive, blind, egocentric, subjective, individualistic Human development.

Our present all-inclusive crisis is the necessary prelude to a unique “rebirth”, when we start a new, this time fully conscious, proactive phase of Human development.

As with a seed of a plant that is planted into soil, the original seed needs to rot, decompose for the new plant to grow out of it. Similarly our present, egocentric, self-serving, excessively consuming civilization that has been built on top of previous self-serving, egocentric civilizations needs to “rot”, decompose for a very different Human civilization to grow out of it.

As dictated by Nature’s plan of evolution the time has come for Humanity to adapt itself to Nature’s strict, unchanging laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on. And we have to align ourselves to evolution’s relentless flow towards a most optimal integration of its whole system.

This “rotting” can unfold in a very unpleasant, unwanted way, our Human system collapsing as a result of constantly worsening crisis, wars, natural disasters until we emerge with a new civilization following generations of intolerable suffering, loss of life.

Or we can go ahead of the changes in a fully conscious, protective manner, not waiting for the collapse but starting to rebuild Human society based on Nature’s template “ahead of the blows”. This way we can significantly shorten and “sweeten” the transitional period, changing ourselves and how we relate to reach other through positive motivation, recruiting people through free choice.

Our truly Human free choice relates to which manner we will go through the inevitable changes, transition! Thus I am certain that Humanity’s future is bright, I just hope - and try to facilitate - that we choose the easier, swift path of transition.
