its hard to single out a root cause for all the pain and suffering we see every day; or even to label it as a "problem".. the problem is perhaps in the way we percieve the "world", our lives and this great dream of ours. if there had to be one True problem it would undoubtedly be self importance, Love requiring a guarantee. Love DOES exist, and maybe all the crap in the world only serves its divine will. and our "will" plays a small role... happy new years everyone!!!

youre addressing the "world" as a whole, a multitude of folks.. on an individual basis, perhaps between two people Love can heal. and thus a new "world" is created; the same and yet at the same time.. NEW

Money, Borders, Fear Campaigns, War, Totalitarian Government, Weapons, Power and Control over others, Manipulation, Lies and Deception..that any of this is even allowed to occur.

well, you might as well have said "evil" or "greed". If you wanna real results, you have think like a Jedi. Remember when they blew up the death star? they didnt launch missiles at their big guns, they looked for the little indescripent weakness, and snuck a little bit of fire in there.

KABLAM.

independant media, independant engineers, independant economists, independant scientists.

the lack of them, is our biggest problem.

nope, the first step is what type of films you go to see. You go watch the matrix? you support corporate control.

you go to a documentary festival, you support independant media.

the media is the key to the destruction of the death star. The magazines you buy, the TV you watch, and the films you see. The websites you go to.

To put it in Lord of the Rings terms... The race of men only wants one thing: power. That's your problem right thur. If the world has to be healed, our minds don't have to be detached, our souls have to be detached from the need for power.

No we didn't sign.. I was being sarcastic  :grin:
We did get an offer though. From Century Media and an indie label.

Hehe, well, I remembered you talking about that, so I saw it as a possibillity, but then again, I figured that you would have said something in MAL.... never hurts to question, at least. hehe

Oh, by the way, my ego does request that I let you know that I did catch the sarcasm in the Colin Powell bit. :grin:
Peace.
