What is globalization?

“Globalization” is the present evolutionary state Humanity finds itself in.

Globalization means existing in a globally integrated, fully interdependent world, where each and every person is mutual responsible for everybody else, regardless of where they live, who they are, whether they know each other or not.

This is a state necessitated by Nature’s evolution which relentlessly progresses towards the most optimal integration between all of the system’s vastly diverse, seemingly incompatible parts.

As they say, we can find the whole Universe in a grain of sand, meaning what is true to the whole system is true to each of its parts.

We can view this total integration, interdependent, total mutual guarantee through our own biological body that is “globally integrated”. If the cells, organs of the body didn’t keep “mutual guarantee” - making calculations for the sake of the whole body above and many times against individualistic calculations - then disease, cancer would appear, threatening the life of the body.

Humanity is an organ - one of the species - in Nature’s body, and each Human being is an individual cell in it.

As a result of our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic, excessively consuming nature we are like cancer-cells right now.

This way we are completely incompatible with “globalization”, using the inevitable interconnections for selfish profit, to exploit others, to succeed, survive at each other’s and Nature’s expense. Thus we are now in a deep, unsolvable crisis affecting everything we do.

So we need to go through a unique, fundamental self-change, self-upgrade in order to stop our march towards cancerous self-destruction.

We need a special, purposeful and highly practical “integral education”, so we can learn, moreover feel what interdependence and mutual responsibility actually means, and how much better our lives would become if we reached compatibility with Nature.

Our original incompatibility is purposeful from evolution. Since we have to achieve mutual integration with each other, and by that reaching mutual integration with Nature purposefully, actively, above and against our original nature, state, even after integrating we will retain an independent, fully aware observer point.

Through our unique, individual cell we will be able to sense, comprehend the whole system in a way animals - instinctively integrated in the system - can never feel, perceive it.

This special, objective, independent still integrated observer status is our Human purpose in Nature’s evolution.
