Being serous for a moment, after my previous post it will be hard to digest, Even though we argue about our intelligence, our technology and all of
our 'achievements' two things that I envy the 'lesser' developed peoples for is their wisdom and spirituality.
We have fast cars, money, food readily available, but take those 3 examples.
Cars - we drive without ANY consideration to other road users, we are stuck in our boxes and that box is OUR world, NO ONE is ALLOWED to interferre
with our passage from A to B.
Money - We crave money, work night and day to get some printed fabric, we kill each other over it, fight over it, told we must have it to be
appreciated by others to be popular.
Food - reaily available , but sometimes poisoned by toxins, makes us lethargic, craving more, makes us unhealthily fat. so much choice and only so
much time to consume it all. We throw away upto a third of what we buy.
Now take your 'lesser' developed cousins or for example the Indians described above, 1 death in 300 years and still ashamed of it, we can't go 300
seconds without hearing that someone died from mugging, a robbery, a war or an addiction of some sort ( ok maybe not 300 seconds but at least 3-4
times a day?).
We have increased our knowledge of the universe, of our world, our oceans , even the lifeforms on it , even our bodies, but we have not learned about
our souls. We want to fill that emptiness with material goods, things we cannot take with us when we die.
We have lost so much due to industrialisation, modern technology has made us lazy ', telling people " that was funny" now equates to LOL.
A surprising , startling question ? WTF?
I will meet up with you at a later time , c u l8r.
With laziness comes lethargy, and lethargy means finding another way to cut corners. Sooner rather than later we , I mean our children will be text
speaking instead of having conversations, they will be bamboozed by books .Totally untterly confused by written words all because of technology,
Don't get me wrong I love technology, but when it's used to create a lazy society , that will eventually turn into dullards I wish for an EMP to
send us back to the stoneage...
Rant over, back to being mental ,
