In the end there is only one life per person and most of us are satisfied with that. Those that crave control though will never be satisfied, because they always will feel that they need something more, something 'better' in terms of controlling, Immortality becomes a must :) To me that's just Bs, as is manipulating. I don't accept it, and I don't see why you should either? Grass can penetrate concrete.

One promise, being yourself won't destroy the earth, as a matter of thought, it just might save it.

I wrote " Think 'Five' wrote that universe is a 'null game' somewhere. In a way it's correct, we come from 'nothing', we use 'energy' to exist, and as we disappear 'nothing' will still be as great as it was when we was here. So will the 'information' about this universe, according to the main stream beliefs. "

Now, that is interesting :)

Do we build new information through time, or is the information also a 'null game'?
I think we build it,  and if we now by 'chance' survive trying this, I believe it will be beautiful. It's 'new', not in the way of not existing in some 'static universe' but through the free will we laid down creating it.

Then again, I differ between good and bad, and anyone of you that seen a rape hopefully know the difference? If you don't, yeah, its a 'null game' in all terms of it. And you and me becomes without purpose, life, ethics, compassion, empathy. Simplified, we're tools, or if you like a 'machine'. And without a observer, also meaningless. Do you think you are? And your kids too? And spouse?

Life crave, why does it bother if we're just a 'machine'. No need for it, it's then all predestinated anyway, isn't it? Nope, we're more than that, and if we just grow up, we will make dreams come true. And I repeat, it starts with you looking at yourself, instead of others. Doing that is building those rings on the water, that will make it change.

You better beware, I'm a subversive :)

Most of what you think is important is Bs. The shoes you wear. The watch that tells other people 'who you are'. Bs, that it works doesn't make it true. Most of the things you grew up with are just the same, bs. In a social context it becomes all important possibly, but your reality is this. You live and then you die.

Why don't you slow down? Why do you think that it's all important to reach B from A in as short time as possible? Social pressures? F* that, slow down. And I don't mean you need to get yourself a bicycle and become a vegetarian. Look at them, they're rushing through life, the same as you.

Slowing down, one kid per person. It saves energy, and will allow you to think. What the f* made Einstein think that a patent office was the best environment? All those ideas, or the possibility to think?

Do we really need a new and faster commercial jet? What about a next generation Zeppelin? Allowing you to sit down, have a smoke, walk around, getting aquatinted with new adventures (eh, girls:), new people politically speaking? It won't take you from A to B in as short time, but it will save energy, and it indeed will be a adventure. You want to be 'super fast'? Use the f*ng Internet.

In short, it seems that we don't grow up until we're somewhere in the fifties. Tolkien was perfectly correct to put the age from wild and thoughtless youth, to getting somewhat mature to thirty three. if my memory now stand me by? We get so filled with idiotic ideas, all those 'pressures' that we have to adapt to, that it takes a lifetime to sort out what really is important.

Do you really think that Einstein needed those other ideas? That they was all important ( as you see I reuse, saves energy:) for creating relativity? Bs.

Do you know that modern gene technology actually shrink genetic diversity? Profit defines it, it has to grow fast, look good to you instinctively, and be cheap to produce. That means that it will lack substances that has taken nature millions of years to create, because they takes more time, They're too slow, and it seems we're to stupid to see why we should keep it. We all want to be fast, and beautiful :). And in a social context that's not who you are but whom you present yourself to be.

Spelling, no need to get surprised. I don't change my texts, only the spelling and sometimes the way sentences come out, I like honesty.

That doesn't mean that gene technology can't keep it, or even make a better product, just that profit and stupidity walks the other way.

one billion people to seven, in one hundred years. We're becoming a locust to this planet, in so many ways. And it's the best spaceship we have. No matter what we can do, Earth is home. Yo really think that living in some space habitat, mimicking this earth, will be better? And what would you do with those purposefully destroying it?

And you don't need to be a revolutionary to do it. Just be yourself, and take your time. Don't let others tell you what to think. Yeah, it includes me too :) But you need to decide whether you want your kids to have a better life, or a worse. And that one is now.

We're at a breaking point, but we're not passed it. We're balancing, one way or another. We may become a 'failed species' in which case I'm sure nature, mother earth if you like, will try again. Or we can decide that what makes us happy isn't 'profit'.

If you like I can turn it around?

'Survival of the fittest' :)

Would that be profit? Where exactly are we at present? 'Vulgar Darwinism' has a definite lure to it, but it's not a answer. I can say this, we're now at a point where we can lift ourselves by our hair, if we want. Or we can stay there, to let the last one standing scream on the garbage heap that Earth become, 'I'm the winner'.

Your choice, and your life.

Most of the 'problems' to living circles around ones fear of death, if you accept that you too will die, then a lot of the 'pressures' that define you falls away. Actually, it will allow you to live. That's not a bad thing, and you don't need a gym for it either.

It's like standing up for life, not the life that people inform you of.
The life you feel you have inside.

And you really need to be prepared to die for it. Unless you're the one standing as the last man or woman, screaming that you won.

It was never force, it was just living, and letting live.
