confusion we cant reach the real goal of knowing our true selves!
we all want to be know it alls but we cant because we are just one piece of the puzzle...
In 2012 i think this is when we reach the singularity point connecting us with the source and eachother an we will no longer strive for earthly
knowledge but a different kind of knowledge. as in trying to learn universal knowledge.
give me your thoughts you bunch of know it alls lol
I know what your saying. The thought people seem to express, including me from time to time is; "everything would be great, if it wasn't for all
these people who don't have a clue"We often observe, aware of it or not, that our opinion of people improve when were not getting sound bites, or
pontificating ideology, but we get a chace to talk with them real time. Face to face is better. When we yell at some one on TV because we don't agree
with him, or like the way he's saying it he can't react to us, so he's an idiot. TV can be very dehumanizing.
But if on the net, we get real time feedback, so "OK, he's not an idiot, but he's wrong. A web cam gives you visual feedback. "He may be wrong but
he's a nice guy. And in person, "I'm stll right, but I never looked at it that way, he may have a point." The net is begining to move our mind set
from accumulating information, to knowledge, or how we use it, to insight, creating something totaly new. It's not having the old tools build
something new, the old tools can't. So we make new tools.
But I think greater connectivity will have a greater impact on how we behave, then the toy's we play with. What I'm concerned about is as each of us
have a greater impact on events world wide, governments who are already nervous will get more so. This goes beyond goverment's traditional concern
over people getting access to information and reacting to it. It's people asking their own questions, and getting their own answers. In the next few
years the total relationship between people and institutions might change into some thing we never thought of before. One possible change, the concept
of which is not new, but up to now was not technologicaly possible is participatory democracy. Thats when every one of us becomes our own political
represenitive. We can author and vote on any bill that affects us, or not. It's up to the individual. Many no doub't may have an intrest in one or
two issues. For everything else we might have a traditional represenitive. Other, more traditional elements of government would remain, untill society
and technology caught up. I can see how any current power behind governments would be scared to death. And in their intrest to see this won't
The thought that the world will end on 12/21/12 may not involve aliens, or the world blowing up. But a shift in how we view ourselves, each other, and
