Ok, i can agree with that in essence, but i dont "feel" any different than i did 20 years ago.
And if its all a matter of us being a part of the creator, i can accept that as well. But that fact that we live in exceptional times i do not see.
Throughout recorded history mankind has time and time again thought that strange occurances heralded some kind of coming appocalypse. A meteor shower
was cause for dread, eclipses fortold the end. People who were mentally deranged often proclaimed as shamans or witchdoctors.
Be honest. When you were young, you often thought that by wishing hard or trying hard, you JUST might be able to fly, even for a second. Perhaps if
you stared at a spoon hard you could bend it with your mind. If you looked hard into your parents eyes you could maybe read a thought or two.
This is no different to how you are feeling. I dont feel anything different now than i did 20 years ago. If anything, i feel more secure that the
Soviets and the Americans are not going to launch their nuclear arsenals due to a false warning. Besides that, i see no reason that our times are any
different than any other, besides we are advancing technologically at a breakneck pace.
I do believe a possible technological singulartiy to be in our future, and perhaps this is how we as a species will transcend. But some kind of
natural shift? I just dont feel it. Perhaps im less sensitive to these things than those of you who claim to "feel it coming", but i dont think so.
Ive seen odd things like 11:11 on the clock constantly, but i think there is a very simple psychological answer for that, just like there is a simple
explanation for almost all things that seem strange to us. Occam's razor, people.
Let me ask you this; why is it some people are so sure the end of the world is coming, and filled with dread, yet some people are so sure that a new
frontier will open to us, bringing joy and wonder? Why such a large disparity? Are both going to happen? If so, why do some feel the good and some
feel the bad? I suggest its because you have tricked yourself into believeing these things.
