Honesty and good faith shall return hallelujah. Assuming humans do indeed visit other civilizations Patrick humans would have so much value to offer and contribute to our galaxy and any other ones who'd be interested.
By the time humans can visit other planets, mankind will as different from what we are today as an amoeba is different from a fish. In our current state, condition & situation I don't believe mankind could offer a damned thing worthwhile to another civilization.
In reality, wouldn't that be a bank account they would be shoveling that money into? We all heard what they are doing with the cash that we've been told is supposed to be burned or destroyed... But I like the naval version, as well.
Yes, but what you are permitted to see is money going into a furnace.
*. It will take 1 in 5 of the active OS and BC players required (20%)
*. For humans to well understand use of saved money = 4 fifths ( or 80%)
Regarding where we currently are…..What are the current percentages as things stand today?
The Committee responds:
"Humans prepared to question, investigate then discover the money shenanigans used to manipulate, this is a low single digit percentage, depending on the criteria for such inquiries.
Approximately one in ten humans currently understands banking and uses of customer deposited money."
"Combined with this will be a dramatic drop in ornamentation and luxury.
Artistic expression in personal objects will fade away but artistic expression shall grow."
Can TC elaborate on what this means?
Artistic expression in personal objects seems like a positive thing when not taken to extremes. But how will artistic expression grow then? Everyone will live in a mud hut and wear plain clothing, but start painting pictures? ;)
Lorri, I think what is meant is that the focus will be internal rather than external. We'll be practicing our dance moves instead of being impressed by our neighbor's gold toilet seat. My problem will be getting off the 1 and 3 dance beat and joining everyone else on the 2 and 4.
I agree with Tom, Lorri. The Shift is going to flip our thinking from competeing with each other to helping each other, so what Tom said makes sense, artistic expression will grow and caring about "things" will fade.
Im wondering if the people of Vanautu have any idea what they are sitting on top of. The island took a hit a few days ago. 8.0. Doesnt mean much, it took the same hit in 2015.
I'm thinking of the William Morris quote:
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
It was from the Arts and Crafts movement where objects should be designed to be both beautiful and useful.
@Scott R, this earthquake in Vanuatu was quite a deep one which makes the intensity less. The epicenter was not under populated areas and in any case the population in these islands are small. Dutchsinse has predicted a bigger and shallower earthquake in a region north of Australia in the mid point of the waves from the Vanuatu earthquake and another 7+ deep earthquake which took place last week near Fiji. It could be an undersea earthquake but could potentially cause a tsunami
My personal view: artistic expression is HIGHLY subjective, how moderate or extreme it can be is likewise HIGHLY subjective.
The Committee says: "Personally owned or used items will see a decrease in decoration and much greater emphasis on design for function. Artistic expression will grow elsewhere, in buildings, items and projects for collective use."
Santanu, dutch got my attention a couple years ago, but I haven't followed him for years I guess. Does he know what's there? This is the reason I brought it up.
Isn't there a giant Arse super volcano that's sitting submarine near Vanuatu 🤔🤔
Giant arse volcanoes are sitting all over the surface of the Earth.
