What is our “natural state”?

Question from the Internet:

“Does modern civilized life hinder people’s natural state?”

It depends on what we consider people’s “natural state”.

If we take it as the “natural state” defined by Nature’s deterministic, lawful system, then our “modern, civilized” life hinders that “natural state”.

Our “natural state” — as defined by Nature — is a fully integrated state where we all become like individual cells in the same, living organism, all living in absolute, mutual responsibility towards each other, all making calculations only for the benefit, wellbeing of the whole collective and the whole Natural system.

“Modern civilization” is built upon the selfish, egocentric, exploitative individual that succeeds at the expense of others and Nature. So “modern civilization” is not compatible with the state Nature demands from us.

Thus our “modern civilization” is now collapsing after we have reached the threshold Nature cannot tolerate our existence as a “foreign body” in its system.

Human survival, our right to exist in Nature depends on pursuing and creating our “natural state” as defined by Nature and not as we decided in an arbitrary fashion, driven by our selfish, individualistic egos.
