We can now choose our own path

Temporary unity at times of global crisis

Many people are awakening to the fact that when we are facing a global crisis, global problems we would need to build global, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing connections in order to solve these problems. But then many laments that even it happened, as soon as the problems go away, we would revert to the usual, exclusive and ruthless competition against one another.

Existing in a deterministic, lawful, closed Natural system

First of all, we will need to understand that what we are observing now is not a Hollywood movie, when there is one great blow, a conflict situation and then we can go back to life as if nothing happened after the heroes save the day.

The choice between two different pathways

The Coronavirus crisis is the first in a series of increasingly strong, threatening “reminders”, “invitations” from Nature’s system to push us towards a fully integral, collective existence above and against our inherently selfish, individualistic, exclusively exploitative one.
