We need to change our limited, egocentric, subjective knowledge to Nature’s infinite wisdom

Question from the Internet:

“Is humanity getting smarter, or is it actually the contrary?”

The problem is not whether we are smart or not. The problem is from where and due what purpose we get our knowledge.

At this stage - and ask far through history - we have been getting smarter through our inherently egocentric, subjective consciousness, perception of reality, for the sake of our instinctively self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative, excessively consuming existence.

As a result the smarter we are, the more harmful, destructive we become towards each other, Nature and ourselves. Right now Humanity acts as a very clever, intelligent “cancer”, using, exploiting, consuming everything in our path, seemingly marching towards an inevitable seeing-destruction.
This is why we would urgently need to change how, from where and due what purpose we attain our knowledge.

We live in Nature’s perfectly balanced system which has an infinite treasure chest of wisdom and resources. In order to solve our mounting problems and safeguard our survival we need to acquire access to Nature’s wisdom to replace our useless, destructive Human knowledge with it.

In order to access Nature’s “database” and “download” information from it, we need to become similar to Nature through its qualities. As Nature is built on balance and homeostasis that is sustained through the selfless, altruistic, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation of its parts, elements, Human beings need to build the same kind of interconnections, cooperation with each other.

Then the newly, purposefully and methodically integrated Humanity - with a new, unprecedented collective consciousness, collective intelligence - will be able to integrate into Nature and attain everything from within. Then we will become truly smart!
