    And I don't think it's just the outlook, Gray. I'm not sure we have the ability to turn things around at this stage of things.

    It sometimes feels like we're on a runaway train with no way to slow it down...
    Embrace the possibilities.

    The world is happening. That's all you can really say. Humanity has been around long enough that nothing we do is new, though the outcomes can be different. Though I suppose that those outcomes now include the possibility of ending our own existence, so I suppose that would be considered a bit of a change.

    The world is evolving, just like it has been for the last trillion years or so.

    i guess i was pointing out that i cant answer questions like this... it's hard for me to formulate descriptions of the ostensible without a purpose to, it's a waste of time.

    sort of like explaining all of this, but the difference is that ive already done it.



    ...or perhaps i prefer to formulate explanations but not descriptions.



    it's gonna be one of those day, i think...

    Humanity is inherently the same. People do things for their own benefit. Sometimes, that is for the good of many and other times not.

    Its an Illusion, as far as i'm concerened. No one can be sure what it really is, though..its to complex for our fraggle egg shell mind to comprehend. We just assume way to much, and we think we know, and we plan out what we know..we write books on what we think, and we are intellectuals because we assume way to much. I'd say no one knows for sure.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
