Why is “globalization” important?

Question from the Internet:

“What makes globalization important, especially in today’s society?”

Globalization means that we have evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent world. This is not something “we did”; it is not the direct result of global markets, the economy or the Internet.

We have evolved into a global and integral world because Nature’s strict laws that govern general balance in nature’s “global and integral” system force us to become similar to and integrated with its system.

By default, we all sense ourselves as standalone, independent beings that thrive for individual freedom, for individual rights, and we think it is ok to ruthlessly compete and succeed at the expense of each other and Nature.

As a result of our inherent program and intention, we have become like cancer in this globally integrated and interdependent world we evolved into.

This is why it is extremely important that we learn, accept and actually feel what it means that we exist in a global world where we all depend on each other. Only as a result of accepting and “viscerally” feeling this will we agree to start acting above and against instinctive self-interest for the sake and benefit of the whole system, like cells of the same body.

This is required of us by Nature and evolution. And besides safeguarding our continuing physical survival as a result of becoming compatible with Nature, we will also reach our unique Human purpose in Nature.

We are the only part of Nature that can consciously recognize its inherent incompatibility with Nature and evolution and take proactive, fully aware steps to reach compatibility. As a result of this conscious and purposeful process, we will gain such intimate knowledge and understanding of the whole Natural system and its evolutionary plan that we will realistically and tangibly feel like the “governors and guardians” of Natural reality.
