Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What would a world without privacy look like?“
It would be like we are all naked in front of each other.
While it might sound terrible, because we currently count on having all kinds of protections over ourselves, when we would remove our protections, then we would become free. That is, we would feel no need to lock ourselves away from each other, and we could open ourselves up and feel unashamed in front of each other.
We can be free either by having nothing or by having everything. Moreover, we can cover any feeling of insecurity by connecting to the positive force of nature and inviting it into our lives. According to the law that guides our reality—the law of equivalence of form—by adjusting our attitudes to each other so that they become similar to the attitude of the upper force of nature toward us, then we would feel ourselves in the same boundless state as nature.
However, we are currently in an opposite state to nature. We are egoists while nature is altruistic. Therefore, having our privacy removed currently seems like a nightmare to most. It all depends on how well connected we are: If we realize our connections harmoniously, where we each support and encourage each other to construct altruistic attitudes to each other above our innate egoistic drives, then we would feel completely secure, safe and confident, and we would have no fear of losing our privacy.
