It's interesting to think of that question:
"What do you fear?"
Well I fear of loosing my children or one of my grandchildren, but that is just a normal fear that anyone that has loved ones should feel. I've
already lost both of my parents, so I no longer really have that fear.
But should I fear that something is coming or that some change is or may soon happen?
Hard to fear something you can't see or feel.
The only time I see the things that people talk about fearing is if I turn on my computer and use the internet. Turn the computer off and step
Peace. Tranquil. Beautiful.
I live way far in the country. It's quiet. Birds are singing, deer are coming out to say "Hi.". Skies are blue (except when a rain storm moves in).
The air smells clean. My water from my well is still the best damn tasting water I've ever had, even after 10 years now. Makes the best coffee, tea
and yes beer that I make.
At night I step out and the billions of stars glitter back at me while I listen to the cricket and frogs that sing the night away.
We jump in the car and head to town. Small town. Nothing taller than 5 stories anywhere.
Folks are friendly. People hold doors open for others. Some find something on the ground and run after the person that dropped it to give it back.
What's that? You're short a quarter to pay for this? Don't worry about it. Get it to me next time.
And I make sure I do get it to them the next time.
There just isn't anything to really fear. Except maybe if it's going to be a really hot summer day (and this summer has been the most mild summer in
several years), or if it's going to get freezing cold and have an ice storm.
So I guess I need to count my blessings. Neither I, nor my family and friends around here feel any kind of "big" change coming (check back with us
in November 2016, elections do get folk around here to talking) at all.
As for the GGS?
A bunch of etchings in stone. Mayans did the same thing.
But if I was forced to pick one of those "rules" on the GGS, I would have to say I don't really care for #1.
I see where it's been suggested that it's trying to say "keep" the population done that low only if some calamity destroys 6.5 billion or more
people here on Earth.
But that's just as speculative as saying "it means someone thinks we should slaughter every one until we're down to that 500 million."
We don't need to "maintain" 500 million. We NEED to be getting people OFF the planet and to another place to live.
Never have your eggs all in one basket.
and any ways, here we are at 7 billion people.....and I still have to get in my car and drive to go see another person that doesn't live with me.
