What picture describes Humanity?

Question from the Internet:

“What photo sums up humanity?”

I did not find an actual photo, but I will describe you the picture:

Imagine a body, where each cell thinks that they exist independently of each other, constantly fighting, rejecting each other, taking away everything the others have and need for their own selfish purposes.

Imagine a body where instead of healthy, mutually integrated, healthy cells each cell is a cancer cell.

This is the picture that describes humanity right now, as our inherently selfish, individualistic, subjective, and exploitative ego separates us, although from Nature’s perspective we are a single entity within Nature’s fully integrated system.
