Certain assumptions were being made based on the OP's query.
Assumptions yes (no offense plz not saying this to be insulting) Assume Makes an A out of U and Me usually.
Wasn't trying to single you out either, the across the board shut up buck up, deal with it trend started getting on my nerves.
Honestly you just sort of continued on right here with the same mindset "lacks direction" etc.... You have a set of values broken into you that's
the way it is again I have to reiterate, I didn't see this Thread as being about how to grow up and be like every other adult, I see it as asking how
NOT to. And most of these return replies i'm bashing including yours go on to DEFEND your life and give a hard sell on it.
To me that is the Mental definition of getting OLD, developing a paradigm, becoming conditioned to it and accepting that it's the "Only Way"
Is it the "Only Way" no... I think while better than religion we can do Way better than Money as a definition of success.
I have never seen anyone list their Bank Account Total on a Tomb Stone... I see things like "Loving father" or "Best friend" or other some such
statements, but never a bank account total or how many houses a man acquired
then retiring fairly young with financial security and multiple paid-off homes and property and now living south of the border in what to me is a
And you keep going....
You do realize that if the OLD ALLOWED the YOUNG to change and improve upon paradigms, if we didn't create such awful systems in theory there is no
reason you couldn't have just walked across the border at 18, built a house with your hands in less than a year and had that from day One right? Not
from 30 years into things?
The first reaction to that from some will be hogwash, some will assume if they hadn't read that this 42 year old is some 19 year old "dreamer"
But no, we are DESPERATELY In need of a new Paradigm in an automated world of Robots...
Don't get me wrong the Industrial Revolution was needed, could have robots building Robots to do our dirty work if we didn't go through it.
But the line of thinking from the Industrial era is going to get us all killed and NOW more than ever we NEED young thinkers who are going to QUESTION
and DISMANTLE the machine here because if we don't LET them we are all screwed.
JOBS? They aren't coming back... China has stuff wasting away on the shelves, if those 1.5 Billion people build 5 Machines each no one will ever
need to go to work again from a place of NEED and Yes, we are closing in on the capacity to do that in MY lifetime let alone the OP's
(not as simple as robots) automation is everywhere... Jobs vanish every day. This system will fail. and frankly we don't actually NEED 6 Billion
Writers lol... lol there will always be a need for some human work, but realistically this day of Work as we know it is already over, a lot of jobs
are there just to keep people working
It did, however, sound from your tone you are not generally at ease with life. Perhaps it is just that you are fed-up with hearing from people that
may expect more from you and others.
I sound like i'm not at ease with Life? O really? Remember the Assume...
I am however fed up with hearing people "Expect more" from me and others though YES that is correct.
MOST people do unfulfilled things, I completely believe that to the 95th % when people talk of their "fulfilling careers" they are fulla bulla,
most jobs are very boring, something like 40-50 Million jobs in this country are down right terrible that would be roughly the number of telemarketers
and fast food workers we have "to keep people employed"
Okay fats food can be run like in Japan from a Machine no one actually need the guy that forgets to wash his hands touching their food, frankly it's
gross, and calling people and asking them to buy stuff is a step above begging
So if you question that we aren't in a stage where the industrial era is over just look up, half our wrk force is doing NOTHING already
so YES she has every right to QUESTION.... WHY WE PERSIST
and i'm sorry but when your mind get's locked into something and just keeps doing it and insist other people keep doing it that's sort of crazy.
That lack of plasticity in the end is the start of dementia
If we keep the INDUSTRIAL ERA Going
While living in the COMMUNICATION ERA
We are doomed
6.5 BILLION People Doing and building and digging will use up every resource on this planet
In the real world machines can build assemble-able homes and 4 -6 guys and maybe 2 others to maintain computers can create housing for a nation of
And why do you need several homes lol?
