What is best for Humanity?

Question from the Internet:

“What is best for Humanity?”

The best for humanity is for us to learn and practice what it means to be “Human Beings.”

According to the definitions of unique, empirical natural scientists — who have been studying and describing human nature in the context of nature’s all-encompassing living system — a “Human Being” is one who consciously, proactively, and purposefully becomes similar to nature’s qualities and behavior, above and against our instinctive nature and behavior.

By birth, we are opposite to and “outside of” nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system.

Nature’s system is based on and exists through a unique, totally selfless, and unconditional “love” between its comprising parts, which comprising parts exist only to serve the wellbeing and optimal state and development of the whole system. Although they all have their own “survival” reflex and activity to cater to their own natural necessities, beyond such natural necessities, they instinctively devote and commit everything only for the whole, sometimes even sacrificing and subduing their own survival for the “greater good.”

We can observe this “natural love” easiest through the operation of our own biological body when we look at the co-existence and cooperation of our own cells and organs. In natural living systems, the greater or seemingly more important a part is — like the brain and heart, for example — the greater responsibility and service they have towards the whole, endlessly and unconditionally serving the whole system they are part of.

In humanity, we observe the direct opposite. Each individual human being thinks about and makes calculations only about oneself, serving and justifying oneself at all costs, consuming excessively whatever one can while succeeding and surviving at the expense of the rest. And the greater and seemingly more important one is, the more on controls, manipulates, and exploits others for one’s own sake, “legacy,” and profit.

And even when we seemingly “give,” “love,” or “sacrifice ourselves” for others, there is also a necessary, ulterior, selfish calculation behind such actions since we are simply incapable of acting without self-serving and self-justifying intentions.

This is not our “sin” or “evil” since we are born with such selfish, egocentric, and individualistic qualities and with the intention to act only for our own sake.

As long as we blindly and instinctively follow our inherent nature and intentions, we are not “truly Human” beings since we are simply instinctive creatures under the control of their original and insatiable human egos.

Our “Humanity” starts from the moment when we recognize that our inherent nature is “evil” and it is acting to our detriment, destroying everything and everybody around us until we destroy ourselves like cancer.

In our generation, we have all the necessary historical and contemporary experience and baggage to arrive at this recognition and to start developing a desire to behave and exist above and against our inherent nature.

This is when we can start learning and practicing what it means to become “truly Human” beings until — with the help of a unique, purposeful, and practical method — we become able to exist and behave above and independent of our inherent egos, even recruiting and using the incredible driving power of the ego for the sake of others and the whole system.

We become Human Beings when we have built a nature-like human society, where each and every individual exists and acts only for the sake of others, relating to each other and the rest of the natural system through absolute “natural love” and devotion, sensing this “natural love” against and in contrast to the instinctive hate, rejection, and animosity we are born with.

Only when we all practice “Being Human” will humanity survive.
