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?
