Where did our imaginary freedom take us?!

Question from the Internet:

“Is it logical to think that if humans were not made for any purpose, that makes us free beings?”

You get your answer from our life, from human history in general.

Up to this point humanity — individually, collectively — has been living life without any human purpose, seemingly free.

We have been endlessly, blindly and instinctively chasing fulfilment for our animate desires of food, sex, family, and for the artificial social desires of wealth, power, fame and self-serving, self-justifying, subjective knowledge, which knowledge doesn’t really help us in solving true problems — especially since we evolved into globally integrated and fully independent world.

This blissfully ignorant “free human being" — that foolishly thinks that it is free from Nature’s strict, unchanging laws that govern the balance and homeostasis life depends on — has been causing havoc and destruction wherever it goes until today it find itself on the brink of realistic self-destruction.

Now the time has come to research and understand our predetermined evolutionary purpose in Nature’s system, and to proactively, methodically fulfill it while we adapt ourselves to Nature’s unforgiving laws. This will determine our collective survival.

We have no freedom at all considering freedom as we imagine it, we are either 100% governed by our inherently egotistic, subjective, cancer-like nature, or we submit ourselves to Nature’s all-encompassing laws.

Which rule we accept over ourselves is our only free choice.
