This is a hope. The descriptions you use are based on almost no evidence of anything living outside out planet and a very base guess at what would
And religion isn't an "unproven hope"?
Regardless of what I, or anyone might 'hope' for as extrapolated from science fiction and/or projections derived from observable historical trends
in the evolution of technology, this 'hope' isn't entirely unproven
nor near as unfounded as any faith that dedicates so much stock in
invisible people in the sky.
How many different apocalypses and/or second comings of any sort of god have been prophesied, predicted and never come to pass?
You may be familiar with this thread: History of Doomsday & Apocalypse FAILURES.
On the other hand, as predictions apply to technological evolution, though hit and miss in finite specifics, we've developed a number of wonderful
solutions, some beyond the capabilities and features imagined from yesteryear.
Your use of the word "natural" suggests that you understand that natural and sustainable are an equivalent. It does not suffice, however to expect
completely unknown technology to replace something that is also not understood (by science), life. To suggest this will happen is none other an
expression of attachment to science fiction.
As stated above, it's a projection; something far more reliable, predictable, reasonable, and even testable than some blind faith in invisible people
in the sky.
To suggest that invisible people in the sky take part in anyone's lives is none other an expression bordering on schizotypy, if not just an
attachment to magical thinking, delusions, poor logic, and pure fantasy.
I am interested in what you know about the energy of thoughts. I am less interested in the energy of creating mind blockages and frustration due to
You may need clarify whatever it is you're talking about as it seems lost in translation.
Energy of thoughts? Mind blockages?
Have you attended even a Psych 101 class? or Anatomy and Physiology?

I actually think that (perspective) may be the one thing that does requite an emotional attachment.
Certainly perspective can be gained, and also lost from an emotional attachment, and you're welcome to think
that all you want, but,
perspective certainly does not require emotional attachment, especially where objective perspective is in detail.
Yes, yes it's all a matter of perspective, and we are going to be robots so let's forget about out present position and project the future into
present as if it was interchangeable. Of course it's relative, so your position reveals your bias.
... then there's solipsism.
I never claimed non-bias.
I'm entirely biased from an Atheist, and even sometimes an Antitheist perspective, and see certainty through projection in the demise of people
taking stock in willingly offering themselves as slaves to invisible people in the sky over taking more stock in the real, the solid, as well as the
more tangible fantasies the real and solid can offer through technology.
... through that technology too, forms of solipsism will also be realized.
If anyone still wants to offer themselves as slaves to worship invisible people, it's entirely their prerogative to do so.
