Question from the Internet:

“What is the best environment for children to help create the best outcomes for both themselves and society as a whole?”

The best environment for children is one that teaches them — through positive motivation and positive examples — how to become mutually responsible and mutually complementing unique mosaic pieces of an integral society.

This has nothing to do with any of our arbitrary and baseless ideologies, philosophies, or religions that are all the products of our inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic worldview and nature.

We need to become like healthy cells of the same body, existing and acting for the sake and well-being of the whole, since this is the basic condition of life and survival in nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system.

And since we are born from nature, exist in nature, and evolve together with nature, our life and survival also depend on the strict and unchanging laws of nature that govern the general balance and homeostasis life depends on.

So we need a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method that can teach us all — not only children — how to build mutual interconnections and cooperation that resembles nature’s integral living systems — provided, we want to understand and solve our mounting problems and want to survive.

Not to mention, this conscious adaptation to nature’s system above and against our egocentric and selfish instincts will make us truly Human: beings that became like nature against their original instincts and by that becoming the natural system’s only conscious observers and equal partners.
