OK, you're messing with my head. I really do not like that. Maybe it would be nice if you stopped it.

Thank you~

REGARDING THE OP: That's his/her opinion and if he/he edits and adds content as much as you do, i could have missed it.

Another thread in this forum(Michael Tsarion) talks about this subject matter. In fact the following link below at 2:50:00 goes like this:

"Mankind's self-alienation has reached such a degree that it can experience its own destruction as an aesthetic pleasure of the first order."

-Jerry Mander-

video.google.com...

"Restaurant at the End of the Universe", per Douglas Adams, has similar theme.

Given the state of malaise in the world, this feeling may not be unusual.

To clear up any misconceptions-

When I made this thread, my intent was to convey the message that I am anxiously awaiting for something to happen. I want disaster, I want to put myself to the ultimate test, be it against the government, or against a panicking general populace.

I know theres many like minded people, and it is those who will survive.

Why I want it:Who knows?

I think its a combination of the boredom and being completely fed up with the way things are. Maybe I am just an evil MF'er and want to see the idiotic general public to suffer, I cant really put a finger on why I am eagerly awaiting something.

I live in Las Vegas, and as I'm sure everyone is aware that the Monte Carlo Hotel (big hotel/casino on the strip) was on fire this morning. There was something inside me just pleading with fate for that thing to come crumbling down for some reason, probably just to break up the monotony.

Maybe I enjoy the thought of a long camping trip should something happen, maybe I enjoy the thought of people suffering because they cant have their Starbucks or watch American Idol. I dont really know why, but I think this nation is in need of a good dose of reality, and some sort of disaster/event should provide just that.

I think 911(manufactured or not) has provided such an X event, although by most accounts, America took a horribly wrong right turn and went to groggy sleep instead of waking up refreshed with a new awareness of its place in the world.

I think perhaps what we need may be an X event like the 2012 transformation, fast forwarded to current years.

I used look forward to a sit x happening but then I realized all the pain and suffering that would follow. Family will die, friends will die, life will change, I now pray every day that no such thing will ever happen, but I fear my prayers will go unanswered. I pray for peace and train for war

Personally i think natural "disaster" is a beautiful thing, that's nature saying "hey, look what i can do!". To experience the awesome power of nature's wrath is definitely a thing to behold. I've been through several hurricanes, most at sea in small vessels, almost sunk and swallowed by the ocean on more than one occasion. I was in Miami for Andrew. Do i wish to never be in a hurricane at sea again? Hell no! If i could raise the funds i'd choose to be dropped off in the open ocean in the path of a Cat. 5 with a wetsuit, some good goggles, and a good flotation vest. That would just be too much fun!

Genocide and the ambitions of madmen aside, it seems pretty obvious that the general concept of being a human was stolen long ago when individualism was put in a can and sold at the store run by "them". Then the stores were consolidated into a few megacorporations, and everything possible outsourced only to feed an insatiable appetite for useless crap, stimulated by brainwashing propaganda and chemical weapons in the form of processed foods and additives. We're in an age where humans are nothing more than production units, at least when it comes to the decisions of leaders, and i mean the real leaders, the corporations. Should the power be put in the people's hands entirely, would things be any better? Would we be better served by greed or ignorance?

I definitely endeavor for peaceful change, and am working my hardest at doing my part in the revolution, not demanding transportation fuels, procesed foods, plastic, and buy almost nothing from any major corporation. I make it a point not to "earn" too much of the fake money the world bank circulates, and every purchase is weighed against the factors of what impact that purchase or action will have in enabling the plantation owners to continue to enslave us. I stay up all night soldering solar cells together only because i feel that's where I can make a difference, i do my part and then some for positive change. I meditate on the concept of individual awakening across a broad spectrum, and speak out against the causes of a world only a global disaster can fix. As an emcee, I'm constantly striving to seek and speak the wisdom on the mic, and am known in my zone as the one who kicks "intelligence rap" by the people. I draw diverse crowds and speak on issues with suggestions for peaceful change. I'm attempting to lead by example, and remain humble in doing so, i seek an audience in order to enlighten those paying attention and to awaken those not paying attention. I visualize an era of enlightened minds prevalent, working together for the common good of ALL, not just for the shareholders. I speak on the steps in my town center when anyone is listening, kinda like Socrates, but without a robe.

Yet, I still look forward to seeing the day Gaia decides to rid herself of the parasites we've become, it's only right, we've poisoned the water, salted the earth, and blackened the sky. She owes us one big time, and like a dog shaking off fleas, it's bound to happen. Had i seen a world where humans tread a peaceful and righteous path, and worked for the betterment of self and others, i'd be more reluctant to welcome apocalypse, but the way things stand, the fourth world's end is due. Regardless of myself or loved ones, a natural cleansing is due, this is bigger than me and you, and our loved ones. I find it selfish of the people who frown upon those who anticipate such events, in fear that their comfort and convenience will be disturbed, to wish for the already rampant injustice, corruption, lies, and exploitation of ridiculous proportions to continue. I fight a just cause, i'm a soldier in this war.

This discussion makes me recall Surah 2:19:

Or like abundant rain from the cloud in which is darkness, and thunder and lightning; they put their fingers into their ears because of the thunder-peal, for fear of death. And Allah encompasses the disbelievers.

And there sit the "disbelievers", a storm is already happening, but the 85s refuse to acknowledge, as the thunder peals of corruption and greed echo and roll through the streets, the masses cower in front of the golden calf we call television, waiting for the owners of the planet to tell you what to do next. The flicker of the television leaving the 85s blind to the flash of lightning, which purpose is to illuminate the truth.

Is my wishing for apocalypse to awaken the survivors of the cataclysm and cause a paradigm shift in consciousness, culture, and humanity any more selfish than you sitting in front of the TV consuming poison and hoping that nothing breaks your false sense of reality?

Selfish, i say!
Do nothing, sit there and hope that nothing shatters your illusion while the owners exploit us all? You're only here for 70 or 80 years if you make it to a ripe old age, your children's children are forced to live in the world of toxic crap that you create with your ignorance and selfishness long after you're wormfood. What's more selfish than that? It's not as much about here and now, but about the future. Having a child in the world at it's current state is in itself child abuse, just as a lion born and kept in a small cage all it's life is animal abuse. Having a kid and then trying to do the 40+ hours and then some it takes to "survive" in your comfy homes and cars for which you've paid your soul to the machine for, leaving little time for doing things like raising the child you created, and instead, the child is raised by the virtues gained from 500 channels of crap and a pile of xbox 360 games. Now that's selfish, just so you can have offspring? Not to mention the selfishness being displayed by the resources that another production unit requires, resources which are already strained, and adding to the overpopulation problem.

So who's selfish? When we and our loved ones are gone, what kind of world did we leave to the future generations? What did you do to make sure that 100 years from now the repercussions of your selfish inattention to the current problems doesn't haunt the generations that follow? I hope no child has to witness the stuff i saw growing up, and i fight with the weapon of the tongue and the pen (well, keyboard), as well as the weapon of a strong will and solid mindstate to resist the devil's temptation of lulling into complacency in the name of comfort.

I don't think you're weird, but that's because I feel the same way. We need a monster shake-up to destroy the status quo. As a planet, we're stuck in a rut of war, greed, and the destruction of our only habitat.

I could throw in that I'm bored and looking for excitement, but what Earth needs is well beyond my idea of thrills.

Be patient. I'm sure it'll come soon enough. Let's just hope it's not as brutal as people are predicting.

Hate to dissapoint you but a situation type x event wouldn't change the status quo, only enforce it. If some natural catastrophe were to occur, the elitists would be safely tucked away underground, while everyone else would be on the receiving end of nature's wrath. It's not destruction that will set us free but the most powerful weapon currently in our arsenal. It's called the truth and elitists fear it above all else. Any civilization that thinks destruction is the answer to a better, more prosperous future, deserves to go the way of the dodo - extinct and that's exactly where you'll end up, unless you change your attitude.
You negative people are your own worst enemy & nightmare come true.

That's pure speculation, as is my viewpoint. We can agree to disagree and, together, await the outcome.

It'll take a body count of a million or more white people we know in "civilized" western countries, and the elite cowering in bunkers, to wake up our jaded desensitized population of production units. Brown people don't count, we're too used to seeing brown people in mass graves, it's just another image on TV, like all the others when the genocide is documented for propaganda. I could see a massive pandemic achieving this. Sadly, i don't see peace and love overcoming bullets and tazers, Kent State anyone? Check your history books, peaceful resistance in the past century has been met with brutal force by the plantation owner's police forces. Check back as far as the first decades of the 19th century and you'll find ample examples. Don't look in any textbooks though, because you'll never find more than the sanitized version of history. Textbooks are like chinese internet in analog form. We're kept blindfolded by force, at gunpoint, and the blind lie to themselves, afraid to stand up for rights that are supposed to be natural, call it god's law, for lack of a better term, all the while denying or failing to see that well grounded fears of being beaten down for standing against the plantation owners. They deny that anything is wrong in the first place to shrug off the responsibility that would be placed upon them to right the wrongs. Sickening to say the least.

Wow. I had no idea that someone could take a thread like this and still turn it into a 'CORPORATIONS ARE EVIL AND THE ROOT OF ALL OUR PROBLEMS' post. I was wrong, it can be done!

Your not humble at all. You think _very_ highly of yourself. Comparing yourself to Socrates and proclaiming that your here to "enlighten" us. Then you tell us earth deserves to kill us all, yet for some reason your still here (if you believed that, you be the first).

Amazing.

I recognize people love disasters and want one to come, but I never thought someone would be so elitist about it - "YOU DESERVE IT! DIE!"

The problem with hoping for a situation X to bring about peace is you would have humanity take a backseat to peace, when peace is supposed to be for mankind. That's no different than those in power having humanity take a backseat to profit or progress. Those "P" words aren't nearly as important as the "P word theyre designed for: "People

I don't really mind the polluting of the environment. This environment is ours to control. We should want to control what we can about this environment to best serve us and other species inhabiting this planet. Whether you like it or not this planet's end will come, and it should be our priority to make sure our end does not come with it. And ultimately, if we succeed in doing that, this planet will always exist. Just as this planet represents us, we represent this planet. , This planet was responsible for our existence, and long after it's gone, it's existence in this universe will be validated through ours.

Great thread SW. Very interesting and thought provoking read with some wonderful contributions. I too am in touch with my inner ‘catastrophile’. From standing our under the car port during a bad storm, to pushing the limits of my little econo-box on an overpass ramp, there is something strangely satisfying about having your survival mode go operational and coming out unscathed. I think it’s just the way we’re put together, males much more so than females. When our survival instincts don’t get aroused often enough, we seek stimulation to satisfy that need.

The desire to bring down the establishment and start from scratch might be a bit more concerning to many, but under the present circumstances it’s perfectly understandable. Evil and corruption are so entrenched in every corner of money and power, that it seems the only solution. I like many others feel that a big cleansing is coming. I know that it’s necessary, and objectively a good thing in the long run, but I’m conflicted about it to say the least. It’s both exciting and terrifying. Preparation and education are the things that make me feel better when I get worried about it. BTW, sombody living in the modern day Sodom shouldn't be too keen on God getting ticked off again.

Before you go assuming that you're nuts over this...Consider how many people feel the same thing..I'm not sure if what you feel is a wanting...More like an expectation...Let that thought simmer for a while...Should be an interesting result.
