KVE301/KVE401 Universal Human Values and Professional Ethics
Chapter 11: Harmony in Existence – Understanding Existence as Coexistence
What we are doing today?
“Growing what does not grow”, and “stopping what anyway grows”
The Industrial Revolution took us away from our ability as Human beings to live in harmony with nature. We need to cultivate the resources that are available to us from nature more responsibly. We waste a great deal. This planet is the only one we have. The only thing to be done is to secure a safe future for ourselves and future descendants is to leave our current path of technocracy and leave the whole idea of the technocratic world behind…
When we take from nature, we should also plan to give back to it. This is possible. Renewable energy sources, such as solar power and wind, are perhaps the best methods to begin moving in this direction.
There can be harmony only if each subsystem of the entire creation can strike a mutually satisfying relationship with every subsystem without disturbing the other’s peaceful existence and without hindering its own growth.
