The only natural collective interests then are those of the universe as a unit.
The cosmos is our example of natural relations and collective interests. The interests of the universe are those of harmony and balance. These interests are met solely due to the fact that things of the cosmos function according to their basic nature.
Were the bodies of the cosmos to confederate and conspire for the purposes of conquest and commercial interests, then the bodies of the cosmos would be functioning contrary to their basic nature. Furthermore, the harmony and balance of the cosmos would give way to chaos and continuous “star wars”.
When humanity thinks of identity and interests in terms of natural relations; as opposed to thinking of such in terms of national relations, perhaps then harmony and balance will be the way of humanity; as it truly is the way of the cosmos.
Indeed, the cosmos is our example of natural relations and collective interests.
