Rants & Reasons

 

 

 

 Rants for Reason:

 

Imagine if you will that we just arrived on Earth. Our job is to check up on our species, which has been here for a while. After a quick, yet thorough assessment, we realize that our species has gone mad… 

  -   We are consuming resources at rates faster than this Earth can regenerate, and polluting faster than the Earth can mitigate. The Earth version of our species, Homo sapiens, is on a path of self-destruction. We rapidly check and re-check the data against all historical records. There is no mistaking this observation. Unless there is a course correction, virtually all our Earth brothers will be wiped out by their own hands.

 

What the hell do we do? – Or to put it another way, What in God's name do we do? Or to put it another way…??   We must try to reboot our genetic memory, so we remember that we are all related. – So we realize that to save ourselves, we have to save each other. Although we have never really cooperated on a large scale, we now have no choice. It is face "reality", and establish global cooperation, or face planet-wide chaos and virtual extinction.  It is absolutely real, and it is happening faster than any individual human is capable of comprehending..

 

Many of them (us) do feel that something is very wrong; that cataclysmic phenomena are underway. We are approaching the population asymptote and the forces of nature will crush us if we continue on this unconscious path.

 

Just because planet-wide cooperation hasn't happened before does not mean it cannot happen. It must have happened in other parts of this Universe.  Humans should be capable of collective intelligence…  If only God would make a clear statement that all could recognize……

 

Am I trying to deliver a message from God? – Are many people trying to do something like that? Are We All Crazy? – Perhaps all of the above is more likely than none of the above… though nothing and everything is possible…   Is there hope?  Why wouldn't there be?... Are we supposed to try to figure ourselves out?  Why not?  Is the choice simply to die trying, or to die not-trying?  I think I have chosen to live trying…

 

I still believe we can solve our combined economic, ecological and human crisis. In order to take our best shot, I think we have to reinvent the fundamentals of our communication and our economic philosophy. The Video Rants series exists for that purpose. It is not dramatic like this introduction; this life is dramatic enough.

 

If we apply ourselves, we can change the way we think, then what becomes possible is far beyond what is possible today...
