  • Wow!  Nice, PG.  Can I ask where you found that?  That's a real thinker and I don't have higher praise than that.

    I dsagree with some of it but, mostly, it's dead on.

  • If you are interested in thinking more on this general theme, and especially on how we might find a way out of our current headlong destruction of Nature, I would really recommend reading around E O Wilson's work on "Biophilia". He's completely clueless on economics and class, but very good on other things.
    Here's a sample:

    Wonder if Bjork has read him...

  • Personally, I'm more interested in a all-encompassing solution, like how to rid mankind of unreason.
  • Very interesting article, Whisperit.
  • A pretty sobering article, if not chilling, on the same subject.

    What it’s like when your job is to predict the end of humanity


  • How depressing....links with what's being said in the Conspiracy Theories thread....
    Sometimes, ignorance is bliss...but when you know you're being deliberately evasively ignorant, then..well, the guilt and self hate kicks in again.
    Pass me the gin!
  • Ps Something very cheesy about that woman in the article though. She should have tried to get a thicker rind, change her name to Edam!
    ( I know...not even remotely funny...just trying to lighten the mood...)
  • Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will
  • Wow, this Rave thread has become a bit maudlin !
    Look, in France, when you go to a burger bar, they offer you a happy ending !

    There's a solution.

  • Perfect woman at the perfect time.
    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • Agreed iuv. Two words she used- "compassion" and "empathy", so important..and what a gracious delivery. I personally have always thought of sex and gender as two separate things. One is of the physical body- one of the mind. We are our minds- our feelings. I don't even feel as if we are separate genders at all- but a range of feelings and expression..it is and has always been within the structure of Nature..a Natural Law. That is what should be taught, in order to eliminate fear. Respect- another perfect word.....oh, if only all of mankind could respect nature. It should be innate- but, it seems it must be taught.
