What Evades Our Consciousness?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why is it that when we talk about the integral network, about integral cooperation, it fades somehow, evades our human consciousness?

Answer: The concept of “integral network” isn’t grasped by a person because it’s opposed to his ego. It’s very difficult for him to invest personal efforts in integral work. How can he exit his ego and begin to think about others? Actually, it’s impossible.

It’s only when problems come to him that are above his egoism: fears, worries, and threats, and then he thinks about the benefits of society. For example, this is what happens at the time of war since the benefit and good of the society and of man become one thing. And even more than that; the benefit of the society is the determining factor, and it’s as if a person is a secondary part included in society itself.

How is it possible that a person will be included within the society as one complete whole without any threats or shocks? For this, public pressure is needed, opinion, a social orientation. But if we leave a person alone without any social pressure, then he won’t be able to do it, since this is his nature.

And that is the level of a real united integral society. This is the same level that is found above the present society.
