We can’t solve our problems until we recognize the inner program that drives all of us

Question from the internet:

“Why are humans so selfish and individualistic in pursuit of survival when altruism would make said survival easier for everyone as a whole by dispersing the load?”

This is because — known or unbeknown to people — we are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, subjective and exploitative nature.

Most people honestly believe that they have “good qualities" and can readily connect to others, emphasize with others, serve or even love others, and that only a small minority is selfish and exploitative.

This “blindness" towards our own nature is our greatest enemy, as until we don’t recognize the 100% selfish inner program that drives us, that knowingly or unknowingly we all succeed, survive at each other’s and nature’s expense, we have no chance of finding the only true solution for the deepening global crisis that threatens our existence.

And that only true solution is ready and everyone changing ourselves, more precisely learning how to connect to others, selflessly serve, support earch other above and despite our inner, egoistic nature which we can’t suppress or erase.

Only above and despite the selfish ego can we learn to act, behave altruistically, copying Nature’s integral template into our interconections and as the foundation of human society.

When we do so we will realize why we had to be born opposite to nature, with a cancer-like inner program, as above it, against it we can consciously, methodically correct ourselves through free choice.

This consciously achieved similarity with Nature against our inherent nature will make us truly Human, the peak of natural evolution.
