Question: You have said that people do not understand that it is the relationship between them that affects the economy, outbreaks of epidemics, tsunamis, earthquakes, and other disasters, and if this connection becomes clear, they will inevitably give up their egoistic relationships.
Can you explain the connection between global disasters that are taking place and people’s attitude toward each other?
Answer: Until recently, we have not imagined that nature is global. However, many people have thought and talked about it.
For example, in Russia, the academician Vernadsky made a discovery, outstanding for that time, that everything is interconnected, everything is global, and he called this phenomenon the noosphere.
Before and after him there were many such philosophers, but people have never felt in the flesh, in our world, that we are really globally interconnected.
It seems to us that this was facilitated by the development of technology: the Internet, flights, business, all sorts of programs, and so on. It is nothing of the kind! It is nature that reveals to us its real system in which everything is interconnected—inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human levels, and also the upper layers that we do not feel. And all this is one single whole.
In this single whole there is a single law. Moreover, the system itself is global. It means that every part of it is connected with all the other parts and all of them affect each other and are interconnected with each other, like in a holographic picture. That is, each part includes all the others and what happens in it affects all the others.
In other words, I am a copy of the whole world, and you, and this, and that, that is, everything that can be imagined. Therefore what happens in each of us instantly affects the rest of the world.
