Like our global energy crises there must be economically sustainable as well. We assume that because a dollar circulates from your hand to Wal-Mart’s stockholders hands that our economic system is sustainable - but it is not.
The problem is not money - money is merely as unit of measure. Blaming a unit of measure for what drives the heart of man, well is the nature of man. Therefore the first problem of a unit of money is the human heart. The second and real problem with a unit of money is in the growth calculation used for compound interest. Compound interest is based upon the mathematical rule of 72. The rule of 72: the interest rate is divided in the number 72 and the result of the number of years required for the unit of money to double in value. For example: 5% interest divided into 72 results with 12, therefore every 12 years the principal amount doubles in value meaning 1 becomes 2 and 100 becomes 200 but in trillions such as our deficit - well you do the math but realize that the interest will certainly change significantly by the time you completed a single calculation.
The challenge presented is that in a futuristic society such non-sustainable rules would be restricted from education and healthcare.
If this program was from the World Bank - what would be your response?
Any ideas or comments?
Two words: Cholera Epidemic
(Caused by your unsanitary robot)
Hmmmm. There You are, with no One for ten miles or more nearby, and Your flying house touches down and the robot does its thing and You fly away...this will cause a cholera epidemic...how?
I beelieve you have many good ideas mixed up with a lot of ...other stuff. I don't cluster with cults or look outside myself, but I like exchanging ideas. You my friend are exhausting. If you have a black thumb, plant something anyway..they've been around a billion years and our 'vehicle' is related to them...so go outside, and be with the earth. Perhaps they'll talk. We're all no better than worms, we're physical earth water based creatures that live and die. If I talk to anything 'out there' it'll be old old ancient trees, hydrogen, or water, which, no one can prove isn't God. People are getting nutz because they've got a big aquatic brain that convolutes obvious simplicity into delusional monstrosities. Things that are worthwhile, are always simple, and peaceful. Obviously there are major jackasses out there who want to dominate and rape, pillage and enslave and kill, like hungry monkeys...we're part monkey, remember? When women let the boys run things they go wild, they play boy games, and when women live in dreamland and don't bring light into the chaos, men don't listen, they fight and flee like violent animals, and it's why they need something tangible, data that makes sense..
You know... I honor Your perspective, and in the world I would create, You could do exactly as You choose. But I would not want Your way of life. It does not suit Me. I am not a worm. While I have no issue with You thinking otherwise, I do feel it is not Yours to dictate to Me how My life should be led.
The beauty of My plan is that You could go off and plant things and commune with nature and and I can go live in My flying house and travel the planet - and maybe the galaxy. And on top of that... The jackasses who want to control and dominate will be thwarted, because no money means no power over Others, but autonomous power over Self.
I personally disagree with You in the idea that "men" do as You are saying. Instead, there is a small number of (mostly) men who have hijacked this planet for control and profit, using war as a profitmaker - inciting Us with false flags such as 9/11, the Gulf of Tonkin, and so on, most often supplying both sides of the war.
The rest of Us are honest, struggling, oppressed Angels trying make it work in the system of corruption.
But whatever. [shrug] We're each welcome to Our own opinion of the Human race.
Then make a flying car, a flying house...I'll jump on board, I'll be one of your cheerleaders.........show us, do it. Seriously.
Yu'r remark about worms isn't nice.....we're related, (physically) to snails and everything here on earth, it's our habitat, our home, and there's no other that sustains us..e Everything alive has a right to live, breathe eat and drink clean water........ I'm not saying we're just physical., that hasn't been proven.....but you're in this body typing here and telling everyone about your vision, so DO IT! Be an Amazon Warrior woman--
My comment about the boy's club is true.......they're doing a crappy job, into boy games...and we're sitting on our tuffets eating our curds and whey and dreaming---------while they're blowing up the planet! Not that they're all boys...Ya see, zygotes are girls, and either they stay girls, or they become boys. Either way , we're all androgynous. Boys can become girls, and girls can blow things up too...but it's the power of our higher brain--the frontal cortex that gives us the ability to imagine, make music, write, .invent and BE in the RELAXATION RESPONSE.....Fight or flight is the STRESS RESPONSE, very boy-game-ish. Every bomb is shaped like their 'unit'. Once, we were women warriors, and were powerful---but the Warrior Man God, made God in the image of man, male men--human men--and wished to squash the crap out of females who were powerful. Genocide--and now we're the wimps, the consequence of that war with tribal nomadic cultures and females, who were one with all life---the spirits of everything that lived.
What you said, we're already doing that--on another level. if I were in charge, I'd screen out lunatics from positions of power, the way commercial airlines do with pilots......very few fall through the cracks. My brother is a flyboy...I know. Psyche exams--every 3 mos, to keep crazies out. If ONE politician held up his psyche report and said, "Hey, anyone else pass this?"...perhaps people would ask the same question of all elected officials...how many times do we have to wait until the crap hits the fan before we find out---and it's too late?
Anyway, I know you have a good heart, so--blessings. Peace. We're just talking--we can do that.
Well, I admit You did not say We ARE worms... You said, " We're all no better than worms..." which I disagree with.
Now, YOU may sit on tuffets, but I don't. I am very active in trying to change the planet for the better, and there are LOTS of men who work along with Me. In fact... Most of those I find in My "camp" are men.
In My solution... NO One is "in charge." We work stigmergically to govern and solve problems, with everyOne having equal opportunity for input. (For a definition of stigmergy, see http://journal.media-culture.org.au/0605/03-elliott.php.)
As for the building of the tech... Presently I am jobless, virtually homeless (sleeping on a friend's floor), and literally penniless. Believe Me, if I had the money, I would be building away. But I do have men...and They are doing the best They can. It's coming.
PS Go see the movie Chimpanzee.......Google Hypatia, and Bodacia and Amazon Warrior women, the history, myth and archaeology...fascinating.
I'll check the movie out. I have studied history and archaeology extensively...
Thanks for the tip.
It takes participants to do the consuming, for them to continue this....madness. Living off killing, demanding more babies, using war and hedge funds for profit, as a method of birth control, and demanding an end to women using birth control? Baby goods are profitable, and they grow up to consume...When it gets old, let the dominos fall and so will the people who think they have the world by the throat, the delusional 'immortals', who live for material power and control, without conscience, empathy for anyone or any-living thing -- especially non-human creatures... Every action has a consequence, there is no me, only we on this Earth. Many Buddhist monks let go of material things, and live as simple as possible. If we stop playing their consumer game, ...there'll be new ones. The possibilities are infinite. This isn't the only game in town~ If we IMAGINE twhat's just over the horizon.we'll find a new collective belief in integrity. We possibly have to let go, walk out of their Eden, to find it.
Imagine if We eliminated the consumerism-based economy by having no need for money. Did You read The End of Entropy?
BTW, the only known immortal on this earth is a lowly worm, being researched by people involved with the study of telemeres, the little tails that drop off and make us age at the end of our dna. This worm drops off half it's body and that worm is also immortal, thus far. The only worms of this kind that die, are those that have sex...To me it seems like the same way a plant can lay in the dirt and clone itself, grow new roots and become a new separate plant in comparison to plants that reproduce through dropping of seeds. Very enlightening. And strange.
I was married to a man whose father owned a large commercial airline and communications company for many years--and as a child he traveled with his father to meetings, including traveling on private jets to secret locations throughout the world with members of the World Bank, which according to him were some of the creepiest, decrepit old farts to ever walk the earth--power hungry, fear mongering delusional morons whose only goals were to 'control the world' through money and power. They played games with world economies like puppeteers playing on a monopoly board.
Anything conceived by these people would be incredibly small minded and self-serving. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and also apparently rots the brain of stupid men with very high opinions of themselves. According to my spouse, anything they're telling the world is not even remotely close to what's on their actual radar.
