Turning Away From Gut Instinct Towards Collective Intelligence

Question: What is the most self-destructive piece of advice could you give?

Answer: The most self-destructive advice I can give is: “Always follow your gut instincts!”

Our “gut instincts” are always self-serving, self-justifying and subjective, thus they lead us back into our dark, introverted, distorted bubbles, from where we have no chance of assessing our true situation, we have no chance of making educated, objective decisions.

If we want true solutions then we need to exit our egocentric, subjective spheres by accepting the collective opinion, advice of a purposeful, mutually supportive, mutually complementing environment we trust.
