Greetings fellow ATSers. i was just thinking to myself(as i tend to do) about what choice a lot of us make in regards to what reality we choose to participate in. Im not sure how to put a poll in these forums but basically my question is this. If every conscience entity was given a choice to decide what reality they wanted to inhabit on this planet what woudl that choice be?

the 2 options are this

Option 1 # A totally scientific reality with no flexibility, logic and order rule this reality. everything in its place and a place for everything. science is god in this reality all our desires are met by science and all spirituality is frowned upon or laughed at as a simple mind trying to quantify its existence.

Option 2# The magical reality with no rules and no boundaries. the only limits are those imposed by the conscience entities imagination. god is the unknown element in this reality magic and mystery go hang in hand in this reality. all the mythological creatures of folk lore inhabit this reality. all desires are met through magic and the physical manipulation of matter purely by thought.

so please post what you would choose and why.

personally i would choose the magical reality, much more fun and a lot less restrictive rules.

Dude, PLEASE change the choices a little bit. As an OP, it could be good laughs. Instead it's a bit like the choice between Heaven and Hell...boredom or burning? In the OP scenario, either everything is dull and predictable or total chaos. Zeus could be throwing thunderbolts, minotaurs running around, pixies mending my shoes overnight for old women to live in with their 200 kids! All this while Mickey Mouse is flooding the place with his damn broomsticks and water. It's just one big Disney nightmare

I'd like to make a third option: Both. Have the idea of mysticism in the world, and full of spirituality, but have truth in situations, and labels to know what are most things that are found and why is it so.

I used to live in option 1. Now I live in options 1.5 and I'm waiting to finally break through to option 2 entirely.

I would prefer a reality whereby both of those worldviews are reconciled together, a reality which is factually based and one which does not preclude mystical experience, spirituality, and a fundametal relationship between the subjective experiencer and the absolute objective truth and reality. In fact, at each moment, we stand relative to all creation, and to a realm of limitless possibility in potentia, where even the mirculous is at least possible. It's not an either/or I don't think. Much of the myths and legends are allegory which point to a deeper understanding, they need not be taken literally.

Ok, option # 3:

The NWO is unveiled and they go to a REAL trial for their crimes.

The ppl of the world decide this will never happen again, and
open government is setup for all countries that are not like Myanmar.

Once the world has done all the things below and ppl cry to join
us we free them from their dictators as peacefully as possible
with non lethal force if possible.

We shift to a resource based economy, and cold fusion is fully
researched as it has been experimentally confirmed.

Ppl would work at most 24 hrs a week.

Ppl would study and learn at least 8 hrs a week.

Ppl would do some fun kind of exercise and check their health
for at least 30 minutes every other day.

Improving your health would get rewards, maintaining your health
would get points like frequent flyer miles.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Algae oil is grown in the deserts of the world and provide all the
fuel needs for earth forever.

The drilling and oil wars stop, oil drops to $10 a barrel.

Free super high speed internet to anyone that lives in the core
cities and free satellite TV.

And as the Telco's ripped us off to the tune of $200 Billion USD
they get to install it for free.

Not for profit coops buy up empty real estate and let ppl with
clear background checks move in at a cost that will pay off
the building and maintain it, as a not for profit it pays no taxes.

Not for profit orgs spring up for car insurance like USAA.

Not for profits spring up for medical insurance, HMO's are banned
and those who denied care and caused the death of ppl for greed
are sent to trial by a jury of their peers.

Derivatives and other fraud financials are banned world wide.

Billions in bailouts for corrupt corporations is returned to the ppl,
the corporations can go on a super low interest loan to pay it
back or they are liquidated.

Heads of corrupt corporations have all their obvious assets seized and
all their hidden overseas assets seized as well.

Advanced Aquaponics systems are setup around the world providing
nearly free food for all the ppl on the planet.

A X-prize for all things needed by all countries of the world is setup
so that all the problems of the world can be rapidly solved.

Solar powered robots are turned lose on the giant ocean garbage
patch in the pacific and they fuse it into floating blocks of plastic
using the heat from the sun, and ships come and pickup the blocks
ever few months for recycling.

The mentally ill get real care worldwide, and one of the X-prizes
goes to a cure versus treatment and pills that often have worse
side effects.

Lawns are turned into rock gardens, food gardens, covered with trees,
and lawn mowing comes to an end just for the sake of the fuel.

Religion gets taxed just like all other businesses.

The more miles per gallon a car gets the less you pay in tags,
title, tax, and any other arbitrary fee.

Any and all business dealings cannot be done in private and must
endure the light of day much like a legal hearing.

Things like Microsoft's bribing and rewarding private officials behind
closed doors comes to an end.

Products will stand on their merits, not payola.

All useless officials and most teachers are fired, the teachers that
are kept are the top 5% and they administer and maintain the
internet based education system.

A small portion of the many giant empty buildings are converted
to homeless shelters.

Prohibition of drugs is ended as the officers of LEAP have made clear.

The world moves to a system of teaching yourself via something
like moodle.

Kids that struggle will connect to chat rooms and help each other,
and if that does not work then a teacher can step in to help.

Disruptive students are put into special groups and separated
from those that do well on their own.

The trouble students are separated into their specific issues
and a teacher and psychologist work out the issues and try
to bring the problem children back into society.

School can be performed anytime of day or night and you do not
have to "show up" for class if you are ahead on your work.

For those struggling "showing up" amounts to logging in and
performing at least a 8 hour school work day.

Ppl ahead of the curve get more rewards for doing so, ie. reward
good behavior.

Private schooling will be allowed as long as the students and the
teachers can pass the tests that are signed off in a council of
leading educators represented from all political spectrums.

Just because one party is in power does not mean they get to
cram their dogma down the throat of our children.

An open voting system goes online and ppl get to vote for issues
and their *GASP* representative represents their votes.

Make it secure thru encrypted USB key memsticks that are read only
and require dual biometric scans, ie. thumb and eye or voice.

And again, totally open government.

Closed door secret executive sessions are to hide the truth from
the public and that is not what was meant for the world.

700+ bases in 130+ countries comes to an end.

We tap 1% of the jetstream and power the entire earth.

We tap the ocean currents and provide backup for the above.

All power, water, and sewer lines are put into service tunnels in cities.

It is built to last and inspected at least once every 5 years.

All bridges and buildings are inspected every 10 years and if found
lacking it is placed online immediately, not hidden from the public.

A nation wide electric monorail system is built that is computer controlled
and is designed crash proof.

The national monorail system connects all major cities, and Ebike
rentals are placed in all major cities.

For ppl that need covered transport 4 times daily hybrid electric
diesel buses would be in all cities.

The city water system would go to just sand filtered water, low tech
and low cost.

Citizens would be told to get high grade filters for their homes for
drinking water.

We have been paying for higher grade water for ppl to water their
yards and flush their toilets, it needs to end.

Electric and Natural Gas hot water tanks would be phased out and
low temp solar water heaters would take their place.

Gas and electric stoves would be phased out and High temp CSP
solar collectors would take their place.

Gas and Electric dryers would also be phased out and use the high
temp oil from the CSP solar collectors.

Algae oil would be the backup for the if the sun is blocked.

Travel within a Metro would be slower monorail, perhaps 60 mph.

Travel between Metros would be faster maglev or vacuum tube
electric trains traveling at 120 - 360 mph.

I could keep going but I think my point is made.

It's only a matter of how you perceive your own world. Perception change doesn't occur over night, normally.. it's something you look back on and then notice the change. I used to think only the first option was possible. Now it's almost as if I live in both options, like struggling between them.
