What should be our priority right here and right now?!

Question from the Internet:

“What are the priorities for an average human in 2022? Could You sort human priorities from the most important ones (such as breathing) to the least important ones (flying to another Galaxy) in a list?”

More and more people started to think about the overall purpose of human life.

And while for many, this still seems far-fetched, philosophical or even mystical, very soon, we will all realize that without an overall goal or purpose for our life, we won’t be able to continue existing.

Moreover, without an overall, truly Human purpose, we can’t even call ourselves human beings, as presently, we are simply wasting our time chasing fleeting material pleasures while escaping from pain like other animals.

Actually, we are even worse than other animals since animals do not intentionally destroy each other and their natural habitat simply “for fun”, acting and existing like cancer.

Thus the main priority should be to try to figure out who we actually are, what system we exist in, what the root cause for our endlessly recurring historical problems and crisis situations are and how we could adapt ourselves to the Natural system we are born from and still evolve with.

Only when we start such a deeper examination of why we live and what we are expected to do, and what role we need to fulfil in Nature’s lawful and deterministic system will we be able to understand and solve our mounting problems that threaten our continuing survival.
