We need to learn how to adapt to a global reality

Question from the Internet:

“How does globalization serve as a new challenge to social change?”

“Globalization” poses the greatest challenge to Human society.

Globalization means existing in a globally integrated, fully interdependent system.

Contrary to popular belief, Globalization is not something man-made, it doesn’t simply mean global markets, financial systems, media and entertainment.

We had to evolve into a globally integrated, interdependent Humanity in order to reach similarity, compatibility with the Natural system we exist in, we evolve together with.

Since Nature is a completely integrated, interdependent, closed system — a system that is infinitely greater, stronger than Humanity, a system we can’t change, overcome - Humanity had to adapt itself to Nature in order to survive, develop further.

The problem is that inherently we are all egocentric, individualistic, self-serving and self-justifying. Thus global integration, making calculations for the benefit of the whole system ahead of the instinctive selfish, subjective calculations is against our nature, original program.

This is also purposeful from Natural evolution.

Human beings are supposed to achieve integration, compatibility with Nature consciously, purposefully, willingly, by our own efforts. Only this way can we fullfill our unique, evolutionary Human purpose of becoming Nature’s only “inner observers" — on the merit of integration, in a unique, independent way — on the merit of our original opposite, “outsider status".

We can resolve this evolutionary paradox and achieve our Human purpose with the help of a special, purposeful and practical educational method.
