What does that mean? At the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human levels of nature, there are systems that interact with each other. They are absolutely integral, mutually complement each other, utterly complete, and are intended for human beings to use them correctly and to improve them through faithfully using them for becoming similar to the Creator. Then, through all these systems, he will begin to feel a vast upper world that includes absolutely everything.
In our world, we see integrality at the level of inanimate, vegetative, and, partially animate nature. In human nature, we do not notice this because we ourselves are on this level.
For example, we see how we disrupt the balance of inanimate nature: we emit gases, heat the atmosphere, block rivers, and stop natural processes. In the end, it all backfires on us in the most unpleasant way.
However, nature is intentionally created to be harmonious, so that we fit into it as the highest layer of harmony. However, when human beings begin to interfere with nature with their dirty, clumsy hands, they only cripple it. We constantly break it to suit our egoism and believe that we are doing the right thing, that nature is not a huge whole living organism.
Moreover, its inanimate, vegetative and animate levels are connected with each other and jointly participate in a common integral interaction. And human beings are created in such a way that they would gradually fit into this nature as an integral part of it, studying and supplementing it with their sensible participation.
However, unfortunately, this is not happening because we are egoists, we are originally arranged against the inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature. Therefore, with our human egoism, which is higher than these levels, we do not fit into nature, but on the contrary, we begin to break it to suit us.
For many thousands of years, people were doing whatever they wanted with nature. And nature, as an impeccable judge, punishes us. Rather, it does not even punish, but simply compensates for the crude, unreasonable distortions that we bring into it.
Therefore, we can only talk about health by taking into account the entire inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human organism, that is, all of nature, and more or less understanding how it should be in the correct interaction between all its parts, how it can compensate and complement all its levels.
Then, while maintaining our health, we will be able to ascend to higher levels of attainment, adhesion with the vast integral nature.
