Environmentalist on the Titanic

Environmentalist on the Titanic

So I have heard… There was a comedian on the Titanic. He was doing his act and wanted to poke people’s fears. So he started playing with an idea that the ship might go down and all the passengers would drown. Or freeze to death. Or be eaten by sea monsters…

-…think about it. We’re on this huge boat, made of steel and powered by a mighty steam engine. It looks so grand, so invincible. But what do we really know about building huge ships like that? We just started. And it’s the first of it’s size! And where do we send it? Worst seas – full of icebergs (other things we know little about – that’s two things we know little about, sounds like trouble to me) and storms and shallow waters, and maybe sea monsters .

People laughed and laughed. Of course, it was a joke. They didn’t know any better. They knew almost nothing about ships and icebergs and navigation. All they had was trust. They trusted that someone did the work and checked all the scenarios, and researched all possible issues, and made tests before sending hundreds of people on a last voyage of their lives.

Yet, as it often happens with modern humans – first we create than we think. After all, what could happen?! Not like we would all die from sudden undetectable cause that nobody knew about and wouldn’t warn us about! And not just die, but suffer greatly and then perish in our misery! Not like our “Supreme Leaders” would make stupid decisions that would affect millions of even billions of people on this planet, causing droughts, famines, floods, wars, nuclear explosions; corruption, crime and unrest! They never done that before, right?!

We better listen to our scientists. They know what to do. As long as they don’t follow the same routine of jumping to conclusions and making assumptions that would put other living beings at risk and in danger. No matter what the objective is, we should always question the means.

And we should always have people follow Ethical protocols to ensure that all known scenarios and all issues have been resolved before we commit to birth something into this world. For we might bring a monster to life just as easily as we can say “Hi”.

“I had a dream once, a nightmare actually. I was telling people about how bad the world is, how polluted the environment become and how much suffering we are creating for ourselves, and other living beings on this world. But the people thought it was funny. They were laughing and laughing and laughing. Till they burst into air, like bubbles in a wind. And I stood there, all alone. Misunderstood, confused and sad. Maybe if I only said different words… or in a different tone… or to different people. But maybe it’s just a dream, and I can make another one. One where people care for the world they live in and actually do something to keep it healthy and fertile. And all those “Takers” – they seem powerful and all, but they are poor inside, for they don’t know the true value of things. Because you can’t eat money. And the tree will always be a tree, but the money will become worthless paper, not even suitable for the bathroom.”

Learn to discern Reality from a Dream and you will find true Freedom.

The Story about “You” and “Me”

If there was a magic pill

that would show us the world

the way it is

to show each individual

not what this world is made of

but what this world is made for

and that is

To Exercise our Imagination

In a sense

science is a way

to Exercise our Imagination

Finance is a way

to Exercise our Imagination

Gulags and Genocides

Bands, Tribes, Future Mega Civilizations

they are all ways

to Exercise our Imagination

BUT

We have YET

to FULLY

Understand

that

We

Are

Creating

ALL

The Rules

That Are Not

Natural Laws!

We Create Rules

About Believes

We Create Rules about

Disbelievers

We Create Rules

As we Create Words

And Define Their Meanings

As we Dream

And Tell Stories

YET

We are like in a Dream

We are not aware we are

Doing

Anything

Intentionally

(because it is true, we do not do anything Intentionally, unless we are a violin player. Now, good violin players don’t usually(!) do on conquering nations, think about it)

This Dream

Goes on since

The First time

The Human Mind

Was able to formulate

the Concept of self

you and me

you me

me you

us

we

them

and so on and so forth

objects have relationships

quality of relationships

randomly dependant

on a slew of factors

but one that is

not applied frequently enough

is to Create something Intentionally

Like Designing a Car

or Building an Operating System

of Building a Bridge

YET

We fail to fully apply this

to our persons

we either dominate each other

or we have to live in small groups

simple life and not much trouble…

well, why don’t we,

the latter?
