Hello everyone, I have a few idea's to discuss and think about.( I warn you ahead of time I'm not the best writer.) We measure technology and
advancement based on what... ourselves...past civilizations? Think for a moment, how do you measure our civilization?
Lets think what would happen if sea levels rose and covered our planet. Given 1000 years everything in our modern world would be gone, none of
our current buildings or technology can withstand years of saltwater. Pretent America (where I live) was the great atlantis of our time. The survivors
of the current world would only have memories to pass down to their children. A couple thousand years and some knowledge would still remain, but only
as stories from the past. Couple thousand more and it would be know as something along the lines of a great city, land, etc. Modern today we see
atlantis as a great city, we know of it by a single man who repeated a story he heard from another. Who says they couldn't have been as advanced or
more of ourselves then. It would make perfect sense in a flood situation, mass population die off with the loss of almost everything. Our current
world would turn into the future's atlantis.
Another point I have to make, we base our advancement on our technology level, acomplishments and etc. Our world is ours, it is not the past world..
what is important to us today, was not the same conditions of the past. If we destroyed earth 1000 times(mass population die off), every single time
it was rebuilt it would be rebuilt differently. Just as a child born is shaped from birth by what is learned at the core of its existence, it shapes
the outcome of its future. This also can be branched out futhermore of course. As a tree we branch off and go in different direction, seperated
groups would determine their own values and lifestyle, but along the lines of a common direction.
I find it funny to see people say how much more advanced we are today than the past. Take your ipod and go survive off the land for a week lol. 95%
of the world would sit and die without their electricity or common commodities simply because they dont know how to live and take care of themselves
in nature. Just as quickly as we have built our world with our current technology is just as quickly as things will end when that power switch is
The world of today, its very nice to have the easy mode, but we need to educate our kids less on how to press a button and more on how to live and
think. Nature is the last thing to leave this planet, yet we push ourselves futher away from it each day. If we truely want to keep our history and
technology to live, we need a balance of living with and without our current technologies and easy mode buttons.
I've kinda brushed over more than one topic, I seem to do that often.
What do you guys have to add or change about what I've said?
