    I honestly believe our world moves in random cycles and some eras are better than others. Just don't bitch about others and go on with what you think is right and do it.

    Well maybe we're just not supposed to care about all the shit happening in the world.. it seems to be the way. I'm useless and it's outta my hands anyway.

    On another note, it does piss me off to see millions being spent on space projects/exploration whatever, especially when the world is supposed to be in a recession. It's all bollocks!

    ahh, ok so since I probably started it...

    I don't believe in any doomsday, 2012 and the end of the world sh... stuff

    1. I said that world is fckd up because I'm not in the very best mood past few weeks (I'm more like confused but anyway...)

    2. It really is fckd up, the way people think these days and what they do. . .

    And the most fckd up is economy, one crisis has started it all (thanks USA), and now when it's not over yet, the financial crisis is coming... but now it seems that Europe will fall as first (Euro was great idea, but same as all "great" ideas...) and then everything else will follow (except China probably).

    Maybe it won't happen, maybe someone will finally(!) do something to stop it, but I'm worried it's a bit late... I hope that people will realize it soon and will take some precautions, or else we are going to go through some wild years...

    Sorry for OT
    OT accepted:

    never you mind what the world does, Jordy . . let it go and be true to yourself. . . . don;t let anybody or anything drag you down, for you are your own creator of good and bad . . . . nothing has rights over you . . . . so be strong and stop and smell the roses every now and then. If you are beautiful, then the world is beautiful. . .

    edit:

    the world will get better, Jordy . . maybe not because there will be fewer earthquakes in the world, but because people in general will coem together and outcast the hatemongers and warmongers. We will all get our rights back to have THE say in what our governments do that will be representing us and our wishes. . . . People in Iran need to wake up and uprise . . . . JEws and Muslims in the Palestinian territory need to fcome together and simply DEMAND that both representatives stop the childishness over land . . . . 50/50 etc. . .( no place for policy here though). People will stop being so defensive over religious "might". . . . terrorists will be outcast and forgotten . . . . the economy will see a new breed of consumers that will not take for granted any more the credit they are afforded a right to. . .

    we are as much to blame for certain things . . . . .

    All I know is that peace is inside us all and no matter what the world is doing you MUST always live with peace in your heart . . . you must block all thoughts of hate and worry . . . . the world is like one big factory and at times if you pay too much attention, you will notice more of the "noise"inside it . . . . it it wold be for now purpose, except needless heartache.

    escape to within yourself and see the world differently than others do . . be different, and be a bright light that others notice, while all the rest are in debt to worry and hate.

    You are a creator,and you are a master in this life . . and if you pay enough attention to your true self, you will see yourself as being "above the rim."

    One day you will understand.

    In my opinion nothing completely catastrophic is gonna happen in 2012. In manking is gonna die in that year, how can we make First contact in 2063?

    Now let's be serious. Some philosopher said that we live in the worst world of all possible. And he was opposed by another who said that we live in the best world possible. Maybe it was vice versa, but the point here was that neither was right. Unless you can build some sort of "dimensional travel device", we can't find out what would happen if something happend differently. Ofc, unless you accepr the "Godwin's law of time travel" which says, that all changes to history make nazis win WWII... The point is, you can't say, that world would be better without some bad event happening, or vice versa.

    I don't say world is perfect and I don't want to change it, but I don't posses superpowers. All I can do is accept the real world. Maybe I accept it only to some degree, otherwise I wouldn't escape so often to fictional worlds, but the other option is despair and I want to evade that. Overall, the quote that expresses my feeling of all this is: "That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting ... " I recommend reading the LotR, or at least see the movie... it will shift your view of the world more to the "hope" mark...

    The BP Gulf of Mexico oil leakage from the cracking ocean floor (this is not an 'oil spill') is already a 'catastrophe' by any stretch of the imagination. So, no need to wait until 2012 to see if something catastrophic happens. The ramifications of what has happened in the Gulf of Mexico so far will be felt for at least 100 years by some estimates ... and that assumes that the problem will not get any worse (which I do not believe is true, because the ocean floor is cracking due to the oil pressure beneath it).

    Anyway, I have looked at this overall 'global crisis' problem from 25,000 feet and have come to the conclusion (as have many others) that the problem is unsustainable population growth. By some estimates, the world population in 1930 (the last time the world experience an economic depression) was around 2 billion. Today, it is estmated at 6.8 billion. So if the 'global' unemployment rate is stated as being at, let's say 10 percent (who knows what the real rate is), the total number of unemployed people during the 2010 economic depression vs. 1930 economic depression is 350 percent more! Yikes!

    As the world population increases even more, how is it possible for all of those people to be able to drive a car, eat good food, drink clean water, etc.? The earth only has some many resources and it simply cannot sustain that many people. Whether we like it or not, there is a 'sea change' coming in all of our lives (the luckiest will experience a drastically reduced standard of living; the least lucky will leave this plane of existence via famine, war, pestilence, etc.). No, I am not a doomer, but these are the facts.

    On a personal level, I invest in resources (uranium, gold, agriculture) in order to protect my 'paper wealth'. Also, I have scaled back my needs and am not so much materialistic as before. I don't need 'things'. Orion stated it well on a spiritual level what a person should strive for.

    Overpopulation surely is a problem and it's caused by the western civilization. Not because we have too many kids, but because we help all those undeveloped countries with health care... population boom is than unevitable. But on the other hand, stop that help would be immoral. So where is the solution?

    Someone argued here about space exploration... in the long term, only space can help us with overpopulation... The sooner we start with Mars terraforming (NG document Living on Mars recommended!) the better for future generations...

    Well, Humanity will surely destroy itself, but the survivors will rise from the ashes, and the circle will begin anew!
