Why do we need to change?

Question from the Internet:

“Why would the world need change?”

The “human world” needs to change, because our human system is incompatible with Nature’s fully, mutually integrated system, and this inherent human incompatibility with Nature is now literally killing us.

While in Nature also all elements have a built-in survival reflex and they all compete, fight for existence, to cater for their necessities, there is no element in Nature — except humans — that would serve its own survival at the expense of the general balance, homeostasis of the whole system.

Whatever actions we observe between plants, animals, among the cells of our own biological body, the overall balance and homeostasis always remain sustained, otherwise health, life would not be possible.

In contrast, human activity completely ignores this principle. We ruthlessly compete, succeed at each other’s expense and deplete Nature’s resources, causing the extinction of species completely disregarding Nature’s laws.

By all means and definitions, we exist and behave like cancer, causing the destruction of our environment and finally our own self-destruction.

Thus, if we want to continue our collective human survival, we will need to change our world and make it compatible with Nature’s mutually integrated template. The fact that we have to do this consciously, proactively, above and against our selfish, egoistic, exploitative instincts, will help us reach our unique, evolutionary Human purpose — becoming Nature’s only conscious, integrated and at the same time independent observers and partners.
