Humans as Community

How to move away from "I" thinking to "WE" thinking?

YAML Question

Humans have ~10 times more bacterial cells in our body than animal cells, we're 90% non-human by cell.

1) Each human is an ecosystem rather than an individual.

2) Bacteria are community-forming organisms.

So:

If each human is an ecosystem, why in our society we pay so much attention to "individualism" rather than "togetherness"? What would promote "WE" thinking?

If humans are bacterias (community-forming organisms), then what can humans learn from bacterias? How might we act as "community-forming beings"?

I'm really interested to see what can come out of this idea.

So much can be accomplished with simple unity.


[chronological], agree! I just added an idea and a project to explore this question of Unity further.


I wish I could talk as "we" for my flat complex, to my street, to my neighbourhood, to my district, to my county to my country.

We need some UI for talking as a street level actor. We should all be able to vote on points. And points can go downwards and upwards, so people in a flat complex could vote on something to do with rubbish collection. But that point could rise to the street level.


[chronological], do you mean something like an app to coordinate actions with neighbours? hmm, like a micro government. citizens action.


Yes a micro government interface with direct democracy. Should scale up from a flat complex (neighbours talking about things) to streets a time to neighbourhoods to counties to countries.


"How might we act as "community-forming beings"? is essential question.


Ask yourself What can I do and then what can you do for others?


// What can I do and then what can you do for others? //

yes [chronological], I love that! similarly, at SAME community project, we ask members "What can you give?" and "What do you need?".


I'm a lazy software engineer.

You can find what I'm capable of on my github profile: https://github.com/samsquire Click repositories, change the type to sources and that's all my things I've made. And my blog is here https://elaeis.cloud-angle.com/


One idea I have is that as a person I have an API and I will do work for you if you call me via this API.

I need people that are good with HTML and CSS.

What can I give? I can create prototype systems. Probably not as pretty as 0oo.li though ;-)
