The Benefits of Equality and Equal-Giving to Another as Yourself are seldom considered – humans tend to object when looking at the word ‘Equality’ before realizing that the world is the current way it is because of having lived by the ‘Divide and Conquer law’ – that’s plain visible nowadays in terms of how our economic system is ‘bailing itself out’ with no possible solution to ‘save it’ by printing yet more money (debt).
So, what does this have to do with Altruism? Seems we’re far overdue our own ‘evolutionary step’ because:
we cannot possibly continue killing and consuming each other mentally and physically, we cannot possibly continue scavenging this Earth without realizing there must be an equal retribution once we take from what’s here to live, we must care for ‘the other’ as ourselves.
The understanding of the necessity of a New Economic System, a New Model based on an Ecological perspective then points out towards looking at the most adequate way of living life as an organism. If we have proven to ourselves that man made systems have failed to consider all Life Equally, then we must start investigating how has Nature made it to continue existing after all this time – it is a system yes, a life system that works according to its own laws and ‘nature’ which is in fact also of consuming yet, there are cycles that are respected, there are mutual considerations that certainly we as humans do not take into consideration.
Now, where does Altruism fit in this entire scenario? Here’s the news from May 3rd resonating here:
Hamilton’s rule is named after biologist W.D. Hamilton who in 1964 attempted to explain how ostensibly
selfish organisms could evolve to share their time and resources, even sacrificing themselves for the good of others.
His rule codified the dynamics — degrees of genetic relatedness between organisms, costs and benefits of sharing — by which altruism made evolutionary sense. According to Hamilton, relatedness was key: Altruism’s cost to an individual would be outweighed by its benefit to a shared set of genes.
So Altruism makes evolutionary sense when tested out with a set of robots – yes so how could an ‘attribute’ of ‘natural organisms’ can be applied to robots – what is going on here?
Each robot was also given a choice between sharing points awarded for finding food, thus giving other robots’ genes a chance of surviving, or hoarding. In different iterations of the experiment, the researchers altered the costs and benefits of sharing; they found that, again and again, the robots evolved to share at the levels predicted by Hamilton’s equations.
So if Robots realize that Supporting Each Other is the way to go to continue living together then, why can’t Humans realize this is the way to go as well? Altruism then must be redefined from:
altruism : noun selfless concern for the well-being of others. Zoology behaviour of an animal that benefits another at its own expense.
to the new Equalized version of Altruism based on the realizations placed in this document.
altruism: support given to another on an equal basis within the recognition and consideration of self as one and equal as Life.
There is no doubt about this: the moment that such ‘relatedness’ becomes a Self Realization of who we are as One and Equal as Life, then it sure becomes plain to see that we’ll only be able to continue existing if we realize that Altruism in this new definition becomes part of our reality. Then the ‘concern’ will become a single equal and one care, the ‘selfless’ will become an equal and one consideration of ourselves as life – no more, no less – the well being of others is then considered as the well being for all as one and equal.
The expense and benefits are always equal – we can see in biological terms how this is more like a symbiotic relationship than a parasitic one which is usually the selfish ways we’ve lived by as individuals in this world.
Time to consider Robots and their perfection in programming to apply that as ourselves. In the end, we’ve been their creators, we’re only reflecting back to ourselves that which must be realized at all levels as Who we are.
Equal Money System is the real-establishment of this new definition of Altruism – for this we require to re-program ourselves to become perfect organic robots that consider all Life in Equality as Who we are – Desteni I Process is the way to educate ourselves as equally-caring human beings.
