Question from the Internet:
“What is the highest point of human negligence?”
The highest point of human negligence is neglecting the mutually responsible, mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation between us.
By this, we are basically cutting ourselves off from true life.
The life we presently experience, with its egocentric, subjective viewpoint, with its ignorant, introverted calculations that are solely aimed at the self, is like the life of a single, isolated cell in our biological body. A cell that loses its inherent connection with the other cells starts acting in a hostile manner since it feels it has to survive, succeed at the expense of the other cells and the rest of the body since it does not feel the mutual support network, the common circulation, and communication with the rest of the body.
Thus cancer develops.
This is exactly how we exist. Driven by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic, and exploitative egos — which has been exponentially growing through human history — we have been developing like cancer and now we are in a terminal stage, threatening the life of humanity and the life of the planet.
Thus we cannot neglect our crucially necessary interconnections and the cooperation our problem-solving and collective survival depends on, in Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system.
We have to perform the same evolutionary breakthrough original single-cell organisms performed by merging in order to create multi-cellular organisms for the obvious evolutionary advantage. But while this happened millions of years ago instinctively, driven by evolution itself, in our case we have to perform the same feat consciously, by our own efforts, willingly.
This differentiates humanity from the rest of Nature and by this we merit, justify our place at the peak of Natural evolution. By this conscious self-transformation, mutual integration, and by that integrating within Nature, we become Nature’s only conscious, integrated but at the same time independent observers, partners.
This has nothing to do with any of our illusory, arbitrary human ideologies, philosophies, religions, this is predetermined and obligated by Nature’s strict, unchanging laws and its relentless, deterministic evolutionary plan.
