The end of the world as we know it
    #1001077 - 10/28/02 09:59 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Is there any doubt among us that our days are numbered? That there is something on the horizon as evil and ugly as can be imagined and that we are about to enter a darker time than has yet been experienced in the history of man?

If you want it to be dark, it'll be dark.
Succumb to fear and you'll have your Armageddon, Apocalypse, whatever.

After being desensitized by the internet and movies, nothing shocks me.
Human nature is very much as vile and disgusting as it is beautiful and uplifting.

We're exploring the depths of our human nature to the extremes, and will be even more so in the near future.

just my' off the top of the head' thoughts...

I dont think i will die as a result of the end of the world, whatever it might be. But, i do believe it is right around the corner somewhere. Humans will be the cause, unless an asteroid makes it here very soon.

1939, 1812, 1789, and 1348 were all good years! Also, 79 AD was not without it's moments. It will be hard to top those... :grin:

PS: Sorry, but this post cried out for this song... :wink:

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes,
An aeroplane - lenny bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane,
Listen to yourself churn - world serves its own needs,
Don't misserve your own needs. Feed it up a knock, speed,
Grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
Down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a
Government for hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in
A hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.
Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop.
Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
Common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself.
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed.
Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right - right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light,
Feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and i feel fine.

Six o'clock - tv hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a candle,
Light a motive. Step down, step down. Watch a heel crush, crush.
Uh oh, this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear!
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions,
Offer me alternatives and i decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and i feel fine.

The other night i tripped a nice continental drift divide.
Mount st. Edelite. Leonard bernstein. Leonid breshnev,
Lenny bruce and lester bangs. Birthday party, cheesecake,
Jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, but neck, right?
Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and i feel fine...fine...
(it's time i had some time alone)

I know that the shit's gonna hit the fan and we are going to be really fucked. But why bother worrying?

I'm not obsessed with the possibility but it just seems that a lot of strange things are happening and I wanted to know if people around here feel it too.

Bad times ahead, I think. And it's easy to say that reality is subjective while your bubble remains unpierced.

I mean I don't know you dee, and I don't know what kind of things you have had to have dealt with in your own personal experience. I'm assuming yours has been a pretty sunny life thus far, and that helps me to understand your disposition.

We'll see what happens I guess.

You can feel it. You can feel it in your own dreams. You can feel it in your own trips. You can feel that we're approaching the cusp of a catastrophe, and that beyond that cusp we are unrecognizable to ourselves. The wave of novelty that has rolled unbroken since the birth of the universe has now focussed and coalesced itself in our species. And if it seems unlikely to you that the world is about to transform itself, then think of it this way: think of a pond, and think of how if the surface of the pond begins to boil - that's the signal that some enormous protean form is about to break the surface of the pond and reveal itself. Human history IS the boiling of the pond surface of ordinary biology. We are flesh which has been caught in the grip of some kind of an attractor that lies ahead of us in time, and that is sculpting us to its ends; speaking to us through psychedelics, through visions, through culture, and technology, consciousness. The language forming capacity in our species is propelling itself forward as though it were going to shed the monkey body and leap into some extra-surreal space that surrounds us, but that we can not currently see. Even the people who run the planet, the World Bank, the IMF, you name it, they know that history is ending. They know by the reports which cross their desks: the disappearance of the ozone layer, the toxification of the ocean, the clearing of the rain forests. What this means is that the womb of the planet has reached its finite limits, and that the human species has now, without choice, begun the decent down the birth canal of collective transformation toward something right around the corner and nearly completely unimaginable.

I'm an optimist, so I don't believe things will get worse.

I do however feel that the next 50 yrs will be rocky at best..

Humankind is on the verge of some major scientific breakthroughs in the next 100-200yrs.. Ones that will drastically change the way humans live... I'm talking the lengthening of a human life, it could be possible to live hundreds even thousands of years in the not to distant future. Nano-technology which will allow the biggest revelution in history, we will be able to create endless supplies of food, water, and anything our hearts desire..

Space travel will become common place with fusion becoming a reality.. Colonization of the moon and Mars will begin as humans run out of room on earth and move out to the stars. Eventually greed, wealth will be a part of history once all humans have access to unlimited needs such as food, clothing, transportation... Teleportation will become a reality, which I'm sure would have scary consequences via military applications..

I think that the near future bores me because I truly feel we humans need a real awakening from religion and discrimination. Its going to be a long road of change for the next few hundred years, but I feel strongly that Science will be our salvation.

I think the future is bright, but the next 50 yrs are worrysome I think.

I liked that clip! Nice!

After listening to many of Dr. McKenna's tapes I have lost all fear of this 2012 event. I'll be in my 30's...most likely married with kids...let's see what happens...

I think we might be in a really cool point of evolution.

With the advent of technology, we?re able to evolve new skills without having to reproduce... and now we?re just barely learning to alter our own DNA.

Think of the red line as evolution moving along a timeline.


Could be a few hundred or even thousand years before things really get exciting, but who knows.

As for things that are coming up now, I think people are being a little over the top. The events of the next few years will likely be no larger than the world wars.

I like that curve Phluck.

And Thor's optimistic predictions were nice too.

Some major changes must take place of course..  Although I can picture things in a very similar way, just with the elimination of many negative aspects, a Star Trek sort of view of earth and the human species...

I feel crazy when thinking about the race.
So many individuals.
So many people with twisted crazy views of reality and society raised by other morons.  I am ashamed of much of the race but hope the intelligent and genuine will outlast the moron masses who breed like rabbits on top of everything...

If only one could make the whole world peak all at once and realize it's absurdity.

Though can you reallyu blame all these morons?

Ignorance is bliss.
I like being hyper-aware but.
What would I be like ignorant...

Fawk it  :cool:

I think overall things are going to stay the same for a long time, we'll go about things better and faster, but the overall happiness level for humans will likely stay the same, as it always has.
