Or maybe we're just realizing how crazy it always has been, meaning we'll be getting more in touch with the reality of things and, hence, more sane . . .
I chafed greatly during the days of the unconstitutional tobacco lawsuit.
Tobacco doesn't kill. It shortens life.
Other things that take away life hours: waiting at the DMV, computing your taxes, driving 55 on an Interstate that could safely be 70. Half of the public school experience. Long school bus rides, especially.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. Chief Tecumseh
I think what we’re doing experiencing and going to experience is a mix between things getting crazy and things going back to the way they were.
Maybe one is causing the other, maybe they’re feeding off each other, I don’t know, but I think we’re seeing multiple storms converge onto the same point and merge.
Something is going to happen, but I can’t tell what it’ll be in the short term.
Long term this will probably be better for us, but in the short term I can’t tell how it’ll go.
Don't worry about the machines
They will only be as smart as our average. Society cuts off us from most of our intelligence. We are so much more than what it allows us to be. We will find that part again. We will have to find it to survive the change coming. We will have to find it to heal from the trauma we will experience from that change.
Those who have healed will show again us how to find it. Humans are amazing. We got this.
I have been repeating since 2008, it is an incredibly creative time to reimagine one's existence. Real change rarely happens outside necessity, particularly in the macro, social level. On the personal level, we can take charge of our own circumstances and intentionally generate the kind of change we want. One might argue there has never been a better time for that.
I think that Death is not just a part of Life, Death is a form of Life, Death is an expression of Life.
If you eat meat, you don't die, rather you prolong your life, as the simplest example.
The low infant mortality rate only started coming into fruition in the 90's. Before that, babies died in their sleep, or there were miscarriages.
Even when we didn't have low infant mortalities, there was abortion. That's been around since the 60's.
Pax Americana.... Where?!
