New Beginnings

Emotional roller-coaster of love and lust

The future

2 Comments

I can’t believe there are only three days left of 2016! Wow, it feels like just yesterday the world was getting ready for the turn of the century. I was at a beach party new years eve 1999. I’ll never forget that night. The excitement..the year 2000!

Have you ever noticed some of the references made in the past, be it music or movies, with regards to the future?  For example the date that Marty McFly travels to in the future. Never has a date been photo shopped so many times. First it was 21 Oct 2012, then 2013, then 2014 , 2015 & 2016. The year was in fact 2015. And the things that he sees in the future? Self tying shoe laces & hoverboards. Flying cars…I wish.

How about 2001:  A Space Odyssey. Wow they had a manned spacecraft travelling to Jupiter.

The song 2525 –  we are a long way away from that date.

I wonder how long this earth will survive. There are probably a number of people that has already calculated this. What I know is that small things can have a huge impact. The honey bee for example. If it were to die out, it will have major implications on our world.  That’s just one insect. Melting of polar caps, rising sea levels, pollution, over population, super viruses. And then there is the hate in the world. Hate can destroy. Even on a micro level it destroys friendships, families, people. On a macro scale there are countries with weapons of mass destruction, be it nuclear or biological. And we know there is hate between countries based on religion, culture, wealth. It’s so sad.

Hate is complicated. Love is simple. Compassion is becoming a commodity that few possess. Respect. Do we truly respect each other anymore?

Technology has surpassed our humanity

  1. I’m glad we discovered each other. You had me with “Technology has surpassed our humanity”. To me it’s a disturbing reality or at least a very emerging reality. Great post! Peace, Harlon
