In teaching a person the integral laws, we have to turn him into a little scientist. He has to understand where he is, what really makes the world go round, and how nature fulfills everything. We are dominated by nature; we are not above it and not external to it. Where did we come from if not as a result of its plan and programming? We see that this plan and this programming do in fact exist.
People once thought that everything happened by chance or they attributed everything to the Creator or to another factor. Is there coincidence in nature? Everything is predetermined. There is no chance here! We think that there is coincidence because we see only half of the phenomenon without seeing the other half.
In nature, there are connections, grave and serious laws. We exist in them and thanks to them. Suddenly a person who lives in these laws, which sustain him says, “They don’t exist.” A person doesn’t even understand how deeply he is immersed in such nonsense, and at the same time he believes that he is smart.
How can you be above nature? Who are you?—some tiny person on the edge of a tiny galaxy? I understand that a small child believes that he is big, but if we look at ourselves from the side, then who are we? What are we? See what a storm or a tsunami does to everyone!
We are only great in one thing, in preparing weapons against ourselves, and in nothing else but that. What can we be proud of?! What do we create? Nothing good. Everything is only in order to destroy our environment and ourselves.
Where else can we see such an inclination, such a movement, in nature?! What kind of reason does a person have if he operates against his own existence?! We are worse than animals.
Animals optimally take care of themselves; they exist instinctively by the laws of nature. We, however, were given larger brains by nature, additional desires, and we use them only for self-annihilation. What kind of brains do we have? They are opposite! Our egoism is killing us.
Reason is an objective study of the world around us and advancing yourself to matching this world to the optimal state in it.
