Why are human beings so careless?

Question from the Internet:

“What could our world do to make society less careless?”

Indeed, we are careless, like children. This is because we do not know the world we exist in, and we do not know ourselves either, not to mention the purpose for which we exist.

This is why we behave and exist like naive reckless children in a toy store, believing that we can touch, take and manipulate everything without needing to pay or restore.

We have been building our human societies on baseless and excessive overconsumption and ruthless and exclusive competition. We have been surviving and succeeding at the expense of each other and nature while constantly justifying and celebrating our actions.

Even today, when we are already on the threshold of seemingly inevitable self-destruction, we keep celebrating our “achievements” as historic. Everything we do is iconic and legendary, while the ground is literally already burning under our feet — while we can hardly wait to try our newest and most deadliest weapons on each other.

Without truly studying, accepting, and digesting the fundamental laws of nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system, without recognizing and accepting our inherently cancer-like nature and the need to change and further develop ourselves, we will actually and very soon self-destruct.

Then, a handful of survivors will need to learn and implement what we could all learn and implement — with the help of a unique, purposeful, and practical method — before this imminent destruction and intolerable suffering.

Only this unique educational method — that is based on the fundamental laws of nature that govern and sustain the general balance, and homeostasis life depends on — can help us become “less careless” and more “Human” (Human according to nature’s definition and expectation).
