ATS4dummies, I whole-heartedly agree with your assessment of the dysfunction state of world today, and the prevalence of the lack of "empathy" driving behind this machinery. However, I am not sure about the reliance of technology to bring about the change to this trend.
It seems to me it is the very technological advances of man, devoid of consciousness underpinnings, that has driven us into this mess. It is almost as if skyscrapers are built without sound foundation.
Since the time when the ape has learned how to "toss" the scattered bones to attck other apes(Kubrick's Space Odyssey), we have somehow misused such technical advancement for ill purposes, as nuclear self annihilation is glowingly evident today.
If we study the wisdom of the vedic traditions, we are currently in Kali Yuga, where physical domain and its technological accoutrements dominates our sphere of existence. I am hoping Satya Yuga(Golden Age), where the veil between the material and the transcendent realms is predicted to become transparent, can save us from the this Kali(illusion).

I'm certain I have not a more than sophmore intelligence on this issue.
What I am fairly certain of is our guys were warned off the moon. If, we were indeed there, lots of debate on that topic.
The moon holds a wealth of H3 that could make our puny nuke plants look like steam engines.
And for whatever reason, we can't get the most advanced space institute back there in any, way, shape or form till 2020.
Smells like a banana, looks like a banana, must be 'a banana'. Other forces are hindering us because in my opinion we as a world are not breaking out of the jerry springer mold (sorry, can't cap his name).
Obviously we are not the only intelligent life in existence.
So why the secrecy? Why are we quarenteened and stuck on this rock instead of being a part of a much larger galactic society?
My conclusion is humans are a disastrous disappointment to our creator/designer and also to our galactic neighbors. We are someone's genetic experiment gone horribly wrong.
A: I saw that everyone is part of the same thing; I call it 'God,' although the name isn't necessary. It was just loving, and permeates everywhere/everyone: in fact, it is everything and everyone. I learned that the most important thing is to love everyone around you, because that is all there is.
B: I saw that everything is empty; none of this matters. We're all just acting out a script. Whether we love or hate each other; whether we want new cars, or to become monks... it's all pointless. I've never seen such emptiness.

Based on your post I am assuming(I maybe doing exactly this) that you have gained such empathy thru some sort of an OOBE. For myself, I have had such a profound experience which gave me a powerful wake-up kind of understanding to my, although insignificant existence, and its wholistic relationship to my fellow beings, however indescribable it was. My ego was completely stripped away, and allowed me see things more in an "out-of -the-box" compassionate perspective, although I may not have learned from this, and conveniently forgotten it.

This is why we are abandoned. We are souless heartless and empty vessles, exiled by our very own creator, and our own galactic family. We just don't deserve it, and we will never be worthy, ever. We are [snipped]. As a measure of unhappiness created in the world, the apes are more worthy of that love than we.
