The most important for One's life is one's life, what is one's ultimate why, that final goal worth fighting for or at least striving to, exactly why do you/we live and do all of this. As long as ultimate goal is not the right one or clear to each or almost each person while the person is young, it is not good because there is very huge possibility we all might go into wasting resources while fighting for other goals or not being able to resist to weaknesses (and we must know that we have to try to save every bee in the hive, because we want to do it right – right with everyone, not necessarily easy unless it becomes easy by itself).
Reason why it is not dangerous that everyone understands ultimate why is that if one understands that, one will not need and will not be able to do things without reasoning, one will not need to attack others if not having good or knowing the exact purpose, personal natural death will not represent a problem – the result would be freedom of every individual, and then every adult would have to live with it (maybe harder but mostly right, regulated by open laws which would forbid much smaller wrongdoing relative to what is allowed today and who is controling it).
If goal is only you for yourself, or if for you goal is only some person, only family, only city, only state, only protecting religion* or even only humanity – as long as someone on the field, player/doer, tends to put some item over God or fights for some item without considering God – even if not breaking common rules and/or even if doing both smart and hard, Houstons might have a problem now or in the future – very huge problem if that person is intelligent and able to realize big ideas but has a wrong goal, and still huge problem if that person is a prole (I want to emphasize the latter one here). That's why checking of such person's state of mind, as well as standard mutual checking, must be done always – after making sure that everyone who is important does understand ultimate why. Some more theory:
- If goal is only family, then kids [and all others] slightly suffer, and it is not relatively big problem, on a grand scale; in my region, it is, still (2017), because many even replicate and don't understand anything, they play with life, they leave problems etc.
- If goal is only one's state/country, especially for mentally healthy successful doers that hate other states because of very deep but nevertheless really-longterm-wrong and very dangerous reasons, all those nations [and all others, again] seriously suffer, again, and this is severe problem because they are wasting resources for irrational goal of taking one item for themselves and then celebrating the win, then another item etc. – without asking themselves e.g. why other more powerful countries don't do that maybe to them; this would be very simple obsolete mechanism...
- But, even when being near God, when you represent or tend to be the goal for yourself, it is bad again, because then God is not considered even if God must be considered – then if there is external God, one might have 'a problem' in first place, and then others, i.e. everyone will be separately judged (but counterargument for this could be animals, which are simple version of us, and are not tested); if there is no external God, others here on Earth might have a problem in first place because of you/one, and you might be or might not be having/representing the problem depending on your mental health and knowing / not knowing ultimate why.
I think the second no-external-God option is good anyway, no matter if external God exists, as it is just enough for now because in practice it functions (and can be understood when thinking about existence and symmetry, as well as non-existence and no sense coming with that); if it is correct it 100% implies that what we leave to others, to One – those others [who don't die with us, at least if there is only this world] will find that as good or bad, + or − added to our grand total; it would also imply that after death one starts to exist again with other [id]entity, so – if we do bad in this life – it really matters because it is up to us if we will leave for our next maybe-random identities mess and start to exist somewhere in disorder, or leave something almost perfect that can be upgraded – maybe this is 'heaven' and 'hell' in the 'afterlife' (if we destroy everything, it would probably start existing again and evolution would start from beginning, what we don't need).
Holy books are written thoughts in symbolic meaning and with high purpose, and they – however – must never completely cease to exist.* I also think that we should go with withdrawal instead of forcing it, when this is the choice – as long as we need to force something, we are doing it wrong because reaction will tend just to be opposite and/or defending, without reason[ing]; person cannot do over the abilities, this is impossible, it simply works or does not work.** Also, we don't want to lose this what we currently have – because this is probably the final run, and if we bring us to the state of pursuing the big problems (or they being pursuing us) – in these conditions it can be fatal; so trying to control everything should never happen.
Lies also must stop because we think rationally (logically), we cannot think irrationally (illogically), so after making big lies we are losing time into deciphering them instead of using it to fight real problems; otherwise they must be blocked from taking actions...
To repeat, my point is that if goal is wrong, nothing else matters – because wrong goal can lead in completely wrong direction whole groups just to achieve it. It can lead to war if deep goal (item) is territory or revenge, or historically even a woman. Grown ups must be lead into direction of understanding religion, psychology, sociology etc. very well [e.g. collective consciousnesses which are characteristics of every ethnic group and nation; such groups should be kept independent and united, and other side should stop insisting on teritory; worst thing for both sides is going into open conflict]; life is about resources and not about groups fighting for their items and us respecting their rights to do that. Smart people must know that it is up to them whether anything will continue like this or be stopped / better controled somehow, time is only enemy – nothing else, as well as overdevelopment that next generation could not follow, or overcentralized specialized groups that are risky...
