What do we gain by restructuring society on Nature’s template?
Question from the Internet:
“How can we restructure the society we live in?”
In order to “restructure” society, we need a template.
And from historic and contemporary experience we already know that the templates we have been using — all our arbitrary ideologies, philosophies, religions — are not suitable, since any civilization, societal, economic, governing structure we have built so far is doomed to fail.
It is because all our templates, systems are built by and built for our inherently selfish, subjective, individualistic, and exploitative egos. And our inherent nature also corrupts, destroys everything we build.
This is why we need to choose a “superhuman” template to restructure our societies and this template can be found in Nature.
To bring it closer, we need to reorganize human interconnections, cooperation as our cells and organs co-exist and cooperate in our own biological bodies in order to give us life and the consciousness we view reality through.
We ourselves have to become the individual cells of this single “Human Superorganism”, which will also develop a collective consciousness and perception of reality, similarly to how I sense reality above my myriads of cells and organs cooperating in order to sustain “me”.
The huge difference compared to other parts of Nature is that we have to develop, build this “Human Superorganism” consciously, by our own efforts, willingly, above, and against our inherently egocentric, subjective, individualistic tendencies.
And this gives us something extraordinary. It is not enough that the acquired collective consciousness, perception provide a sense of life that is above the usual subjective, egocentric limitations of time, space, physical life, or death. Since we develop this by our own efforts, consciously we also come to understand “Life” itself, why and how “Life” is created and we can start to see all the intricate cause and effect processes that create the fabric of reality and the purpose of it all.
We gain a true, tangible, realistic sense that we ourselves designed and govern reality — while externally nothing changes, we still live here and now, in the same biological bodies as if nothing happened. But in our consciousness, on the level of perceiving reality, everything changes!
