We live in a society to find our purpose in life

Question from the Internet:

“Why are we born and why do we live in society?”

We live in a society as we are social creatures, as in fact all other animals.

Moreover, Nature considers humanity as a single entity contrary to our “misguided”, inherently self-centered, subjective, and individualistic belief that we are standalone creatures who can live and succeed alone.

Of course, we are not “misguided”, after all, we received our consciousness, perception of reality, operating program also from nature, and this belief in our individuality, independence of others makes us human, forces us to compete thrive, and grow to fuel human development.

We are born to use this “illusory” sense of independent individuality to have an “outsider view” of others and Nature and then above and against this “outsider” view to acquire, develop an insider view by consciously, methodically integrating with other people and by the integrating with Nature.

Then as we achieve this “insider/outsider” viewpoint of Natural reality and Humanity — being fully, seamlessly integrated still retaining a unique, independent observer viewpoint — we complete our unique, evolutionary Human development, becoming Nature’s only conscious, objective observers and partners.
