What can humans create?

Question from the Internet:

“Why do we humans love to create?”

We love to create anything that can give us selfish, egotistic pleasures and what can help us protect ourselves from harm and suffering, or what can help us defeat and destroy our “enemies”.

This is how our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic and exploitative nature works. We are not at fault, this is how we are programmed by birth. This is how Nature’s evolution created us.

Thus all of our “creations” and “inventions” – in truth we do not create or invent anything, we knowingly or unknowingly simply copy and rearrange what Nature has already ed and invented – are actually harmful and destructive, since behind everything we do our intention is 100% egocentric and subjective.

This is how we reached our present state, where despite – or as a result – of our millennia long technological, cultural and social development we are at the threshold of a seemingly inevitable global meltdown, where everything we ever built will collapse – it is already collapsing.

Nature wanted to “show” us that we will inevitably reach this end as long as we blindly follow and use our inherent nature. Evolution also gave us a unique human intellect that is capable of critical self-assessment, recognizing how destructive and cancer-like our inherent nature is. As a result of this honest and humbling self-recognition we also have the ability to start changing and further developing ourselves.

We can learn – practically and in a short time – how to act and behave above and against our inherent nature, how to harness and cahnnel the incredible driving power of the human ego towards collective, positive and constructive actions and goals. As a result of this conscious and purposeful self-development we can create a “Nature-like”, finely balanced and mutually integrated global human society that feels itself and acts like a single, living organism.

By that, we will become like Nature-s life-creating and life-nurturing system. And then, we will love to create and sustain life between us, giving birth to an unprecedented collective consciousness and sense of existence that can breach the boundaries of the inherently limited and distorted, egotictic and subjective perception of reality, giving us a real, tangible sense of existence beyond the limitations of time and space, even beyond physical life or death – here and now.
