In reality we are never redundant to each other.
We need to find a smart way to handle this type of thing, we need to step back out of the situation and look at it and realize that productivity and
the making of money is not the be-all end-all of a healthy society. We've got other priorities that we need to acknowledge to be healthy to ourselves
and our surroundings. These days we've got responsibilities but no accountability.
I write that and end up thinking of Terrence McKenna, we need to reinvent ourselves, we need a total re-evaluation of what we're doing and where
we're headed. And the only catalyst big enough for that to happen is either if society collapses, or if we consciously do it ourselves but that would
require a revolution the likes of which we've never seen before. I think only technology and spirituality are capable of that kind of reach. I think
it would be optimal if genuine and pure spirituality were to guide technology. We're hanging by a thread here folks, honestly, I think it could go
either way. But sooner or later something's got to give.
Or maybe it could happen incrementally but I'm not sure it would with humanity being manipulated the way we are.
I'm with Onequestion here, partially because I'm lazy but also because technology could allow it, less work, more time for family and more personal
time. We're so caught up in this rat race that we rarely even have the chance to give ourselves some time, to be alone, for introspection, for
building healthy relationships, to be creative and to grow as an individual.
They don't want that, they want the kids being raised by the state and for both adults to work a soul crushing 9/5 job with barely any time left to
take care of the household or the kids.
As they say, eat, sleep, work, consume, die..
