Question: If humanity was defined by one virtue, what should it be?
Answer: Humanity’s defining virtue is “similitude”.
“Human” – based on its Hebrew translation (Adam) means “similar”. Our Human purpose is to become similar to Nature’s perfect system in terms of qualities.
Nature is described by the qualities of selfless, unconditional, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation of its elements, each part, elem from the smallest particles to largest astrological bodies unconditionally serving the whole.
We could ask, “Since all elements in Nature are inherently similar to this fundamental quality, what is so special about Humans?”
Our Human uniqueness and advantage is that we have to reach this similarity and conscious integration in Nature by ourselves, above and against our inherently selfish, egocentric and greedy nature.
As a result we can reach full attainment of the system from within, since even after the integration we will retain the contrast with the help of our original nature, this we gain a complete picture, comparative research ability within inherent egoism and acquired altruism.
