Why Can’t We Balance Ourselves?

laitman_282.01Question: When predators, like wolves for example, show more selfishness, the number of rabbits in the forest becomes fewer, and then the wolves themselves die of hunger. But then nature compensates all this again, balances it.

Is it possible to say that in human society a balance can also be established between altruism and egoism, receiving and bestowing, for example, using the coronavirus?

Answer: This happens in a much more complicated way than in the animal world because there are many more equilibrium factors here, but we do not see it as such.

We have the possibility of freewill, not like with animals. We can say that they relate to one system and so mutually influence and balance each other. Above them is a general rule, a general formula.

But this does not exist in people. People cannot balance themselves in this way because the property of egoism is receiving, enriching at the expense of another, power over another, and envy. This is what animals do not have. Egoism prevails in man and leads him to absolute destruction.

Question: But still we are part of nature?

Answer: Yes, we are part of it, and we must bring ourselves to its complement as soon as possible and fit correctly into the entire integral picture of all of nature.
