Good point.

How about time travel and the possibilities?
I can see going forward,but not reversing time and going back.
Thoughts?


Life is a cycle


THROUGH

winter-time we call on spring,
And through the spring on summer call,
And when abounding hedges ring
Declare that winter's best of all;
And after that there s nothing good
Because the spring-time has not come -
Nor know that what disturbs our blood
Is but its longing for the tomb.

The longing for a change in the same ol' same ol'.

Long gone are the days of hunter-gatherers ,these are the days of sloth and gluttony.

These conspiracies have been around longer than they became a money maker.

It just took some time before some people took advantage of them.

And there are still some things that haven't been covered yet.

My thought is ,140 years ago did they think this is it ,we have reached the height of our civilization?
Did they think that 1000 or 2000 years ago?
Have we reached our goal yet?
Or,are we on the verge of a new horizon as far as human advancement.

What is the next step in our evolution as a species.

I believe it is and will change at some point in time.
Maybe in our lifetime,maybe not.

Well to be serious for a moment and answer your OP, I do have a topic that I personally wish to be answered and which is the reason I joined ATS in the first instance - imo, the answer would, by its very nature, pretty much encompass every single conspiracy known to man:-

SPACE ALIENS?, INTERDIMENSIONAL BEINGS?, ANGELS? OR NONE OF THESE? - WHICH ONE IS THE TRUTH?

My journey continues.......

Time travelers from a thousand years in the future who, out of sheer boredom due to staggering over population and commodity shortages, entertain themselves by coming back here to make us all paranoid.

Well that and, in the future, they've lost the recipe for Taco Bells beef mix and they jones for it.

Ahh yes I forgot the time traveller entity


Mate - you have no idea how close I was to putting that up as my Avatar yesterday - crazy coincidence - blew me away when I saw it just then.

You having wardrobe issues today? - if so I have about 30 rippers that I have been hoarding that would be right up your alley - I can post them on the Avatar creations thread if you wish to go shopping?

Thanks!


My current avatar identity crisis is more a product of boredom than anything else. Slow night on ATS means lots of free time to surf and mess around.

And, yeah, if you want to post them I'll happily check 'em out!


And to stay on topic... Original thought???

Doctor... I think my pop tart is envious of my neck....

Done!

Standby................
Give me 15mins then shoot across and take a look.

On Topic - I'll see your pop-tart and raise you this:-

"Are our avatars a reflection of our personalities or physical appearance or both"?

My original thought;

The way society works. Is it the best system we have? Take away all the greed and the inbalance between the haves and have-nots, and we have a society that works. Everybody does their bit and keeps things going with the money they make and spend, in a cycle of continuation.

Farmers create produce which in turn is manufactured (processing plants, tradesmen, etc), then shipped (transport), then merchandised (reps and retailers), then sold (cashiers). The same goes for any industry, each step of the process from raw material to the consumer keeps different people employed, even though the overlords at the top are the ones who make the real money.

Without this system, what would happen? Would we still be in the dark ages? Would we be as advanced as we are today? Or would we just find another way?

Everyone these days seems hell bent on removing the middle man, the one who does nothing and reaps the reward, but without them, would we even have this system we have today, and would we all be starving or doing just fine being self-sufficient. At the end of the day, you can say what you want about major corporations, but at the heart they do employ local people regardless, which keeps wages and money in local communities, and keeps them from becoming ghost towns.

That had to be the most original thing I have ever heard of!

Actually I thought of that when I was like 5...

My original thought?

How do people in thought believe things to be true. But when they go outside they are completely wrong and often feel a little dumber.

That's my idea.

Once your veggies are grown for you, and your meat butchered for you, your house built for you, and so on through all the modern luxuries are afforded, the end is near for your civilization.

We as a species need to spend our time building and supporting ourselves. When we become lazy and dependent, we lose the will to fend for ourselves allowing another more hardened culture to wipe the floor with the fattened civilization.

This is a proven fact throughout history, and it repeats itself over and over no matter what we as individuals do.

Our beloved technology is our downfall as I see it. Since "we cannot live without it" we wont be able to live without it.

Just my original non-sourced thought.

thanks for reading..

I have believed this since day 1.

But people are somehow convinced that technology is here to stay. And therefore take it for granted.

I personally think technology is evil. But I use it because I have to to survive. But when its gone at least I have the knowledge to live without it. Unlike some narrow minded people in the world.

They will never get it will they?

Seems like we have a huge problem in disposing of a variety of by-products of our technology.....nuclear fuel rods.......asbestos......batteries.....electronic components.....tires....medical waste....unruly banksters and politicians......etc, etc. Why couldn't we find an active volcano and start really recycling our trash.

This came from a dream I had a few weeks ago. What would things be like today if, instead of the explosion of technology in the area of computing (internet, cell phones, wifi, etc), we had gone through an explosion of technology in the area of transporation?

In my dream, there was no internet, but everybody had these very lightweight collapsable personal transportation devices. When uncollapsed, the looked similar to a canvas camping stool, with handheld steering "pulleys". Flying one was like sitting in a flying camping chair that you could swoop up and down and around corners.

What if such a world exists in another dimension in the same timeline as ours?

Everything wasn't all bright and cheery in the dream, though. There were a lot of soldiers/armed police around and people seemed to be on some kind of curfew system. Funny thing is, I'm not one of the folks who think a "Police State" is right around the corner, so why I would dream that, I have no idea. Probably too much time reading ATS...


P.S. It was both a bit eerie and at the same time cool to be traveling down the streets, flying along in these little slings, and seeing NO cars on the street, anywhere.
