As usual i have some more questions, heck i could probably go forever with questions.
In my mind, neither me nor others here would probably
mind that one bit.
1) You say the shards are people in place of power (money) and try to use that influence in a peaceful manner to keep the balance. Now would
all the shards be willing to throw away their means of power to bring in equality? I know that won't happen cause there seems to always be an evil to
take over that "power".
Actually we see it as an inevitably. Bear in mind we are only the stewards of civilization, not it's keepers nor guardians. We maintain civilization
until one of two things happen. One, humanity awakens, and claims their destiny, the destiny they rightly deserve after millenia of war and hardship.
Or two, a greater existence is realized by humanity, and the (for lack of better words, I cannot use) "forces of light" will help maintain peace
until humanity is capable of sustaining its own peace and harmony. Many of us share a dichotomy of pain when one takes on a position of power and
money. We see it as a sacrifice rather than that of an achievement. Not only does such an individually have to work side by side our enemies, but they
must endure the scrutiny of a corrupt government, and that of the unjust mass media outlets. We view their sacrifices as such, sacrifices for the
greater good. They relinquish not only their personal lives to solemn duty, but that of their spiritualities. They must set aside their path towards
enlightenment, in order to further the paths of others, thus our gracious views regarding their sacrifices.
2) How can the "people" stand up against the injustices of the world without violence? It would seem they hold so much power over us that
there families would never want to part with it, so it would seem the only way to rid them would be to kill them.
Unfortunately this is a global mentality that needs to cease, Throughout human history many have resorted to this solution, as the only finite one.
However, there is another path, a one more worthy. Martin Luther King is a shining example of nonviolent direct action against any oppressor. Imagine,
if a majority of the American people rallied together in massive protests, sit-ins, and various other modern day protesting tactics, the inevitable
outcome. Politicians would cringe in fear at the "numbers of votes" who are in displeasure. Police would recognize they could not act without
hurting neighbors and family alike. Police would be forced to ignore any orders from their superiors, just the same it would require a special type of
military to execute masses of unarmed innocent civilian in such modern times. Such a force may exist, but not in the numbers required to defeat the
mass of the American public. Such a change would need to take place on a global scale, rather than just a country by country status. However, of what
i speak is infeasible in the near future. Such a call would inexorably fail in its inception. As of right now we need to awaken people to the true
nature of things, to let them see the true shape of things. People such as you and me need to help look past the visages of sophism, and
sensationalism. We need to reject vanity ,and embrace humanity. A major paradigm shift is needed to begin a new world "revolution." however with any
revolution it can be peaceful, or tremultuous. A peaceful revolution by the people of this world is what is and will be desperately needed.
Right now what is needed is education. Not education in the archaic concepts of the past. But education in the future, education that promotes hope,
rather than mere tolerance. We must help others "find the path" towards humanity's destiny. If anyone remembers anything, remember this: "that
surviving is not enough, one must be worthy of survival."
3) What knowledge of extra-terristerals do you have, that you are aloud to share? I have a million questions in this field and thought it would
be best to find out first if you know anything or even aloud to share that knowledge.
I was wondering how long it would take before i was directly asked this.
Yes, they do exist. Even from a mathematical standpoint it would be naive to assume we are the only ones out here, as Carl Sagan wrote it "would be
an awful waste of space." I cannot go into great detail for many reasons, and i would be happy to U2U specific answers that i can provide. What i can
publicly state is that they [extraterrestrials] are not quite what many think them to be, at least not in the same sense as the pop culture
mythologies. Many grew on their homeworlds such as us, many faced equivalent hardships such as us. The difference lyes in the eventual outcome. Some
have adopted an indifference towards life, and a drive towards scientific exploration. Such a passion can only lead to a disconnection form morality.
At the same a world like ours that utilizes spirituality to reinforce morality often results in infighting,wars, and death. It is a double edged sword
so to speak. One one side you have a species united because they had no "spiritual" difference to set them apart, and utilized logic to solve
disputes they never engaged in major wars or infightings. Whereas humanity has murdered and pillaged its way through the milenia. However the outcomes
is that a species united in logic, will act upon a lesser species without compassion or compunction. A species like humanity with a history of hard
learned lessons, and a spiritual understanding of kindness will look unto lesser species with care and compassion. In a sense, those whom have not yet
learned the lessons of the past have not been able to rise above them, especially once their species has become space faring.
For these very reasons spirituality was introduced to this world, I do not wish to step on "religious toes" so I will not name names. All religions
hold some truth, some more than others; however in time none of this will matter because the "truth" will be revealed. The truth will be revealed by
those responsible. The saying every member of the Shard carries which is an equivocation in it's very natural state. The saying is "Science can tell
but only religion can tell us why."
