Where is the equilibrium state in humans!

In Nature, everything tends to achieve the “equilibrium” state. For e.g. In physics we learn that “Water” tries to find its own level, and if you remember the experiments, there are two containers that are connected with each other using a small pipe near the bottom of the containers. The shape and size of the containers are different. There is a small gate somewhere in the center of the connecting pipe that controls the flow of water between the two containers. Now to begin with the experiment, both containers are empty and the valve in the pipe is closed, then you fill up one container with water. Once it is full, you open the valve in the connecting pipe and let the water flow out and into the container that is empty. You will notice that water fills up the other container only to the point when the level of water in both the containers reach the same height, so in effect the container with water initially loses its level and the empty gains its water level. So no matter what the size and shape of the container is on the other side the levels of water in both sides are the same. In effect, that’s the equilibrium level!Similar phenomenon is exhibited with electricity, There is a difference of voltages at the two points before they are connected using a copper wire, once connected both the points try to reach the same voltage levels. Even in chemistry it is taught that chemicals react with each other only to reach the equilibrium state. Once the equilibrium state is reached, then there is peace! In other words objects of same nature always try to achieve harmony.So if we as humans are of the same nature then will we ever see harmony among ourselves? Is there an equilibrium state for humanity? Some of the things that are tightly associated with humans are love, wealth, health, knowledge and spirituality. We find lot of disparity of levels between humans in the above five areas and since there is difference in the levels of each of these human aspects there is no perceived harmony between humans especially between countries, regions and race.So can we expect humans to reach the equilibrium state in the above five aspects? I guess we are missing a crucial element here, “the conduit” that is necessary to achieve the equilibrium state. Even natural objects don’t try to reach harmony unless they are connected. If they were kept separated then they would never reach harmony. Similarly we need a suitable conduit to gain harmony in the human aspects of love, wealth, health, knowledge and spirituality. I guess “Internet” has emerged out as the perfect conduit for knowledge that in turn will lead to level out wealth and hence trigger conduiting health, spirituality and love. The other conduit that is happening is identified by the name of “Globalization” and this is leading to the creation of sub-conduits such as “Travel” and wealth creation. With the help of these conduits, it is possible to see an equilibrium state between the above-mentioned human aspects.

But are we missing something here? Is it that simple to just create more conduits in order to achieve harmony? The main difference between the objects in nature and humans is “Intelligence”. Natural objects have low consciousness compared to humans and the only intelligence they are guided with is the laws of nature. Humans, on the other hand are gifted with high level of consciousness and intelligence. Humans are gifted with “Free Will”, they have the ability to create and destroy things. So even the natural tendency for humanity in general is to achieve peace with everything there will definitely be some interesting human elements that would try to accelerate or decelerate this process.
