We have to become “Nature-like", mutually integrated, mutually cooperating

Question from the Internet:

“How can you write a resolution that you can share with your friends about how you can personally contribute towards solving the problems that threaten the networks of nature?”

As you expressed perfectly nature is a system of networks, it is a fully integrated, interdependent whole.

And humanity — including each one of us — is also integral part of that network.

But by default, driven by our inherently self-centered, subjective, individualistic nature, worldview we don’t act “nature-like". Human beings, human society had been acting like a “foreign body" or even like cancer in this fully integrated Natural system.

We instinctively only think about ourselves, we accumulate, consume whatever we can excessively, and we ruthlessly, exclusively complete, survive at each other’s and nature’s expense.

This individual and collective human incompatibility with Nature is the root cause of all of our problems, that is the reason for all other “symptomatic" problems, crisis situations, helplessly recurring, vicious historic cycles.

As a result the only possible, working solution for all the mounting problems we are facing, the only way we can safeguard our collective human survival and stop destroying Nature’s system is learning how to become “Nature—like”, compatible with the system.

This will happen when first of all we learn how to integrate between ourselves, building initially small, “Nature-like", mutually responsible, mutually complementing environments, societies that can gradually grow and merge until they encompass the whole of humanity.

This signals our transition from a blind, instinctive “subhuman” development to a fully conscious, “truly Human" (meaning consciously, proactively similar to Nature) development.
