It’s time to reinvent the world. We are so unraveled that we’re in good position to start over.
What’s primary is to move into a worldview where caring about each other is as important as caring about ourselves. Without that, it’s moving deck chairs on the Titanic. A world operating on humanitarian values will best let us address all that ails us.
What’s I suggest is that first on the reinventing agenda is bringing everyone in the world up from poverty. A declaration we’d go to the moon was what mobilized that effort. How about a declaration that it be a fundamental right of all human beings to get housing, food, education, and health care? Everyone, everywhere. And, to do it much faster than getting us to the moon. This is a decision to be made and not a technology to be invented, so getting minds changed is what we need to focus on. In Grunch of Giants, in 1983, Bucky Fuller wrote, “I do know that technologically humanity now has the opportunity, for the first time in its history, to operate our planet in such a manner as to support and accommodate all humanity at a substantially more advanced standard of living than any humans have ever experienced.”
This is a necessity NOW. Global warming is not a political issue and COVID could be relatively minor by comparison. The virus will ultimately be handled, but humanity having any future is what’s at stake with global warming.
We need government to take people out of poverty, but changing our worldview also can come from the influence of the private sector. We need to be creative.
These are two things we could do:
HUMANITY’S PARTY OR THE TEAM OF HUMANITY
All who identify as being on the side of humanity would make a huge force. Get signatures.
FOCUS FOR HUMANITY — THE MINUTE OF SILENCE
Every day, at the same time in each time zone, millions of people spend a minute focused on kindness.
Scientific studies show that prayer can affect the material world (The Power of Prayer to Affect the Physical World). Kindness flooding the world could turn us into a caring people, while the focused intention we’d be employing, if we have success, could become something to employ to achieve other objectives. It also would very publicly demonstrate the scientific relevance of what’s outside the box of scientific materialism, to finally achieve success in advancing our concept of science, bringing it from the Newtonian perspective of everything being cause and effect into the quantum world where the soul dwells.
This stainless-steel cooking spoon is testimony to thought being able to affect the material world. There were no tricks. A friend of mine focuses his thoughts and bends spoons of any size, one after another.
What do you think of my ideas? What are other ideas to get humanity working together, creating the world we’d like to be in? There is no more important question to address.
