We need to rise above our inherently egocentric, subjective perception to survive!

Question from the Internet:

“If we can’t agree on what is true, how can we work on the problems facing us today?”

We all get the answer when we look at the problems Humanity is facing, especially the global ones where we would truly need cooperation, agreement.

We can’t work on any of those problems, let it be the coronavirus, global warming, pollution, the evolving socioeconomic crisis, etc.

At this stage we are doomed to failure and we are sleepwalking into a seemingly inevitable global catastrophe. Our inherent egoism, individuality, instinctive distrust, animosity is stronger than the intellectual understanding that we should work together.

And since we are all locked into our default, egocentric, subjective perception, we can’t “meet on a common, neutral ground” to start negotiating, agreeing to collective, mutual solutions.

This is why our problem solving ability, collective survival - and in a global, integral world only collective survival is possible - depends on a very unique, purposeful and highly practical method, that can help us find that mutual, selfless, neutral common ground, where we can find agreements and the crucial necessary global solutions for the global problems that threaten our existence.

We all have to lean how to assess, perceive reality from a totally selfless, objective point of view, sending, experiencing everything through the desires, thoughts and viewpoints of others.
