Collective consciousness—a collective mind and collective sensation—is the key for balance and harmony with our increasingly interdependent human society, as well as with nature on all of its other levels: still, vegetative and animate. Today, the need for our realization of collective consciousness is more important than ever before.
We have been developing toward the need for realizing collective consciousness over the generations, and today the need is expressed as accumulating crises on a global scale. To make the transformation from our individual perception, sensation, and awareness to collective consciousness, we require a new form of education that can guide us on how to positively connect in an increasingly interdependent world.
NATURE IS A UNIFIED, COLLECTIVE NETWORK
We are all parts of a collective network that binds us, however, we fail to have conscious awareness, perception, and sensation of this network. If we would, then we would see a completely different world and society than we do today.
Gaining consciousness of this network is a developmental process that has been taking place over the generations. Scientists, philosophers, and other researchers have long considered nature as a single whole. The very idea that we emerged from a single point, which continually expands, strengthens the concept of the universe’s and nature’s oneness.
When we examine nature, we see clear laws in operation. If we fail to see these laws completely, either on macro or micro scales, it merely reflects our incomplete knowledge and perception. The more we discover about nature, the more we discover its absolute interconnectedness and interdependence.
HUMANS ARE INTEGRAL PARTS OF NATURE
Interconnection and interdependence exist on all of nature’s levels: still, vegetative, animate, and human. Individual and society are no exception. We are products of nature. We didn’t create ourselves, even though many of us like to consider ourselves as independent. Instead, the more we develop, the more we discover laws guiding our development, showing us more and more of nature’s interconnectedness and interdependence on still, vegetative, animate, and human levels. Moreover, today, the global interdependence of the most qualitative and developed part of nature—the human part—is being revealed.
THE MORE WE DISCOVER NATURE’S INTERCONNECTEDNESS, THE MORE WE NEED TO RESEMBLE IT AS A SOCIETY
The global network of human society we’re seeing more and more of today is so interconnected and interdependent that, if we could somehow look at it from the side, we would see the impossibility of anyone making any independent motion in this system. Everything is included with absolute precision in this one program of evolution that shows us the absolute interdependence between us and, as we discover it, we understand that we are included within it and that requires us to act accordingly.
According to physics, an observer of an event taking place either in outer space or within the microcosm brings the observer into that event, which thus changes the event itself. Such a phenomenon also testifies to the total dependence between the various levels, in this case, between the human and the still levels of nature.
We have discovered this interconnected and interdependent network gradually over the generations, and its very discovery is part of our development. How does this work? It works such that the moment we discover this network, we must correspond to it. Otherwise, the degree of our imbalance with the network is the degree we differ from and oppose nature, and to that degree, we experience all kinds of problems. This is the cause of a general global crisis taking place in every field of human experience today: personally, socially, globally, economically, and ecologically.
CRISIS EMERGES AS A RESULT OF OUR INCONGRUENCE WITH NATURE’S INTERCONNECTEDNESS
Therefore, for the first time in history, we have reached a multi-scale global crisis, which has intensified over the last few decades. Around 50 years ago, members of the Club of Rome began perceiving an oncoming crisis upon which they published various articles. Since then, the crisis has seeped into every aspect of human experience, with increasing pressure, conflict, stress, anxiety, and insecurity that has resulted in rising amounts of depression, loneliness, drug abuse, suicide, crime, divorce, mental illness, terrorism, economic inequality, and many other negative phenomena.
The problem is that we have entered into a new, interconnected and interdependent system, yet we continue trying to act as the same self-centered beings we were in the past, and thus we are not balancing ourselves with the new conditions nature presents to us. At this juncture, changes need to take place in us as people. Until such a transformation will take place, the crisis will continue to worsen.
Therefore, we live in an era of a great dilemma: on one hand, we discover our global interconnectedness and interdependence more and more, yet on the other hand, we fail to understand how much we differ from and oppose it.
OUR CONGRUENCE WITH NATURE’S INTERCONNECTEDNESS WILL RESULT IN OUR DISCOVERY OF ANOTHER DIMENSION
The question thus arises, how can we begin to match the degree of interconnectedness and interdependence we are revealing in nature?
If we would reach such a balance, we would see that the sum of all our efforts and actions to positively connect would invite an additional force that we cannot access in our current individual modes of operation. This different kind of additional power is a force dwelling in nature, a force that we can tap into if we connect in the way that nature is connected. By doing so, we would as if invite new wisdom and thoughts from a higher dimension, gaining the ability to perceive and sense beyond time, space and motion, because through our joint effort, we would enter into a degree of congruence with nature’s interconnectedness and interdependence.
If we could gather a group of people who would truly make this “click” with nature, i.e. that the group’s members would ascend to such connection with each other as is required by the collective network, then they would find themselves actively pioneering the shift into the next dimension toward which nature is developing all of humanity.
TRUE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS IS WHEN WE SHIFT CONCERN AWAY FROM OUR INDIVIDUAL BODIES TOWARD OTHERS
According to our current developmental point as humans in this system, we are on the animal level of existence, and nature is pushing us to realize the human level of existence. At the animal level of existence, we have concern solely for our own individual bodies. If we could shift our concern away from our bodies to concern for society as a whole, then we would discover a whole new dimension of collective wisdom, intelligence, attainment, and experience a harmonious and happy life in balance with nature.
