We believe that the key to achieving longevity and staying active and healthy is connection to the nature and the environment. And this is not just about keeping ecology in good state; we think that our relationship with nature must be much broader.We look at this with the notion that a human being is primarily a biological organism; therefore, the algorithms and the principles that define human's behavior and his development are the same as for any other living creatures. In particular, humans' live is determined by the same basic instincts as it is for animals - survival and procreation.
Origins of man
Even though we will never be able to completely solve the mystery of how this world came to be, at least we can make certain conclusions and assumptions. One of these assumptions is that the world and the living nature exist in accordance with certain behavioral models that apply to all elements of our world. And at least some of these behavioral models can be explained and described by the laws of chemistry and physics.
Long before our modern times our ancestors used the concept of "macrocosm in the microcosm", by which they meant that there are unified laws that are common to the systems at both the planetary level and the atomic level.
We share the same view that nature has a set of universal tools that are used for creation and development of living matter, including intelligent life. There is a huge variety of the forms of life depending on the chemical, physical, temperature and other parameters. However, the core of all these forms is the same.
In regards to that, we can use kaleidoscope as an analogy, where the endless number of unique color and shape combinations are formed with a very limited set of elements by using the same forming model. The living nature is created and evolves exactly the same way and with the same algorithms. Its diversity is determined only by a different combination of elements depending on a set of random factors.
Therefore, we can quite confidently state that creation of life is not a random process, as well as the emergence of intelligent life. Only the variety of forms, the speed and direction of evolution are random, but not the fact of its origin.
Basically, we need to understand that we are just one form of life out of many. However, we, like all other forms of life, are evolving under the same laws of development.
The key point of our philosophy is the notion that a human being is first of all a biological organism that lives and develops according to the same laws as all other living beings. Even though we have a much more complex nervous system and a developed consciousness, this does not negate the fact that in essence we are not much different from other members of the animal world.
We call such approach "biological prerogative".
It means that we define the basic instincts and behavioral models as the fundamental factors that are embedded in every person on a subconscious level. Of course, other models of behavior that are brought into our consciousness in order to align our actions with social norms and environmental conditions are vital too. However, the basic instincts prevail. And what is most important that these instincts are directly related to the programs that are managing the growth, maturation and aging of the body.
Out of the two most significant basic instincts, which are self-preservation and procreation, we are interested in studying the instinct of procreation, because the aging process is directly related to sex.
The nature is created in such a way that the biological purpose of any living creature, including a man, is reduced to the necessity of reproduction. Along with it comes the second basic instinct, self-preservation, which dictates the need to survive at all costs in order to fulfill its main purpose - reproduction. All other algorithms of human behavior are derived from these two basic instincts, or from their sublimation.
The fact that a man is primarily a biological organism makes it obvious his connection with the biosphere, which he is an important part of. Scientists are going even further hypothesizing that there is another layer of spheres around the Earth called noosphere, which comprises the biosphere, and which a man is also a part of as one of the most important elements.
The nature of these connections of humans to biosphere and noosphere is still unknown and is a subject of further studies. For now we can only guess that they are real, based on the observations, generalizations and attempts to explain some phenomena that cannot be explained from the standpoint of a traditional science.
At least it looks like humans can exchange information with the surrounding biosphere (or noosphere) on a subconscious level and obtain the necessary knowledge from there. The fact that a man possesses large amounts of information and complex algorithms of behavior right from his birth indicates the existence of a mechanism for obtaining such information from the outside.
The drawback of being a part of the biosphere for a man is his dependence on the environment. Clean ecology, weather conditions, and the emotional impact of the surroundings - all these aspects affect our well being, our health and longevity.
Therefore, at least a person should choose the environment that is suitable for him personally. Then he should take a good care of this environment, as his health, his connections with the biosphere and his physical state is directly affected by what surrounds him.
This is the essence of the concept of ecologism, which is an understanding of our dependence on nature and the need to preserve it, as well as the use of our ability to exchange information with the biosphere embedded in us from birth.
If we would understand the fact that we are a part of nature that we dependent on it, and that all forces in our body are aimed at fulfilling one major task - procreation, then we could focus on what really matters.
And perhaps the most important thing is that every person should revise his views and principles, discard those artificial ideological doctrines imposed on him, and develop a more independent and rational approach based on how the processes are organized in nature.
