What’s our choice: willing and conscious adaptation, or yielding through intolerable suffering?!

Question from the Internet:

“What is the call of nature?”

Nature is a single, fully integrated and living system, where the general balance and homeostasis — which is crucial for creating and sustaining life — are governed by strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws.

The “call of Nature” very simply means that if you want to survive and evolve in Nature’s system you have to know and keep the laws that govern the primary conditions that life and optimal development are based on.

Humanity for millennia has been trying to prove that we can ignore or even change these laws of Nature, we have been stubbornly and desperate;y trying to prove that we can assert our own authority above Nature and do whatever we want according to our blind, egocentric and subjective self-serving and self-justifying worldview and calculations.

But in the long run — and humanity’s history so far is nothing else but a blip in natural evolution — we will be either cast out of evolution or we either wisely and willingly or as a result of intolerable suffering yield and start adapting ourselves to Nature’s laws.

As we are watching in “live broadcast” how our proud and “modern” human system is collapsing and everything we ever built and believed in is slipping through our fingers, the time has come to make this conscious choice:

is it going to be a wise and willing adaptation, or do we wait for the inevitably coming pain and suffering?!
