A Future That Makes You A Human Being

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Philosophers claim that a person is attracted by the future and is built from the future…

Answer: This is absolutely true. Our whole future picture, the attribute, the look, and the society pre-exist in nature. The concept of time doesn’t exist in nature. Time is a development only with regard to our consciousness. Therefore, the whole future picture already exists in nature and we have to reach it, but the way we reach it depends on our choice.

Question: The choice of different ways to develop appears only when a person feels the instability of a complex system. When it is stable there is no freewill, it doesn’t move.

Answer: No. The option to choose exists only when a person chooses whether to go in the direction the general integral nature shows him or to follow the way his individual, egoistic nature tells him to. He chooses between these two directions, but the goal is one and he will reach it in any case. What will motivate him on the way: Will it be his ego by negative pressures or his desire for integrality by positive attractions?

While yearning for integrality, it is the vision that pulls me forward, the study of the future state, which stems from what I attain today. If I move towards an integral society, then the information, the feelings, and the understanding of what I should reach are gradually accumulated in me. I can already foresee my next steps.
