If you are reading this then I thank you for actually giving a shit about humanity and where it has been, where it’s is now and where it’s headed.
I have, for as long as I can remember, had this feeling deep inside that humanity has been on a path of destruction. When I was a young child, I can remember watching the original Star Wars trilogy over and over again. As I grew up I remember always wanting to be Han Solo flying around in the Millenium Falcon. I know know that I am “Han Solo” and this community I have envisioned is my Millenium Falcon. Without this singular vessel, the Millenium Falcon, the evil Empire would have become the supreme power in the universe and inevitably corrupted all life in the universe. This path of destruction that humanity has gone down is not necessarily a bad thing, as those of us who have realized what has been going on are now able to go forth in a responsible manner and preserve humanity. This will not be an easy task but it will, as it is with all things, be a never-ending and evolving process.
I came to the conclusion that small close-knit communities and regional economies with limited global interaction will eventually be the norm and not a fringe element of civilization. The knowledge and technology required to live in harmony with our planet has existed for thousands of years and only greed and power have prevented humanity from becoming something greater. Greed and power have artificially increased global population, polluted the Earth, prevented spiritual enlightenment, wasted finite resources and caused more pain and suffering than the supposed “advances” have been worth. Yes, we have exponentially increased our technological abilities, but the cost of doing so has been enormous.
One day, humanity will permanently leave this Earth in search of other suitable homes. Until then, we should make every attempt to live as harmoniously with our mother Earth as possible.
