What is the role of human beings in society?

Question from the Internet:

“What is the role of human beings in society?”

Today we already know that we have evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent human society. We also know — although we do not like it — that we are all integral parts of Nature’s closed, living system.

It has always been so but now we have the awareness and since we saturated, excessively overused the system it has become plain and sharply obvious.

Thus an individual human being is like a cell within Humanity and also a cell within Nature.

Our role in society — and in Nature through Humanity — is to find our most optimal, irreplaceable, unique purpose, mutually contributing function towards the whole, for which we can demand to receive justly, proportionately everything we need and deserve to continue this mutually responsible, mutually complementing role.

This — according to Nature’s laws and integral template — is how we need to rebuild human connections and the fabric of human societies.
