Decisions. Why people are apathetic.

The following question came up on Facebook today:

"We live in chaos everyday of our lives. Confronted and having to deal with social and political issues festering, making us as a people sick. The puppies non confrontational and innocent. Not difficult to understand why they get more likes. I am aware of fracking, also aware of rape, murder, load shedding and SONA and yes the beggar on the corner. Which flag to hold up? Where to give and how much to take."

And here is my answer:

Its easy.

Decide that you want to retire asap. Then make your own electricity, find your own water, work with your neighbours and friends on food and clothing, pay off your house and car, dramatically reduce your cost of living, and then you are retired.

And at the same time as this, you have done your bit for the environment and unpolluted your mind.

Do one small thing each day towards this vision. It is my vision and it is working for me. My wife and I implemented it in 1999. We aren't there yet, but each year we get closer to our goal.

Ending World Poverty and Wage Slavery - and creating an environment to meet our Galactic Neighbours

In today’s age, we have two problems. Maybe more. But basically two.

The first:

We need to understand the difference between a Puzzle and a Mystery. A Puzzle is when you put the 1000 pieces together and there is a missing piece. You know exactly what is missing. A Mystery is where you have all the information, but you don’t know where to look. This is where we are today, and hence why Computer Scientists are now called Data Scientists. We have everything at our fingertips. A device you carry in your hand has all the information that has ever been invented on it; it can take you places; phone anyone in the world; look at colour maps and drawings of anything. And for free! Or it seems free until you are looking for the needle in the haystack. And when you want to find that needle fast, you need to find the person who can find it for or with you and wouldn’t you say that they should be compensated for that gift that they bring you?

Note that I use the word “Compensation” not “payment”. Comp…

Why we are here

Answering the big questions! Why are we here? What is our mission? What does God want from us? How do we meet God whilst we are still alive? How do we travel to meet our Galactic Neighbours amongst trillions of stars in millions of galaxies?
The world is given to us to manage so that our children can inherit it, in a better shape than we found it. That is our mission, plain and simple.
It is in Genesis chapter 1, verse 28, which says that we should "go forth and multiply, and replenish the earth." If we are to be like the sand on the beach, is this by having children? Or is it by having ideas?
We are given two tools. Temptation and Free Will.
Temptation includes things like Gas, Oil, Uranium, Coal. Fossils that fossilise our thinking. Things we can dig out of the ground and burn. And so we are just pyromaniacs! And temptation includes Corruption, Money Laundering, Rape, Taking things that don't belong to us; Slander; Undermining others; etc.
Free WIll is when you override yo…
