Such great things are within humanity's grasp. Instead of a prison planet controlled by narcissistic business oligarchs, supposedly wanting to depopulate and cull the herd; we should be reaching for the stars and exploring the galaxy, just like our ancestors did from the beginning of time upon the earth. Maybe not in conquest or conquering but like exploring and getting to the South Pole & North Pole, or the effort to get to Tunguska a 100 years ago.
All mere speculation atm. Yes, i'm aware that what was once Sci Fi is now reality. but, Fermi's question of " if they're there, why aren't they here?" holds true. There must be civilasations out there in the infinite cosmos, perhaps a million years more advanced than us. If the theory/Sci Fi of warp drives and more are possible, Why Aren't these aliens here, now, today?
You don't go to the stars if you are worried about safe spaces.
Our social structure has become dominated by the Yin.
"Yin represents the dark and its characteristics include those that are “feminine”, passive, receptive, and sensitive such as: Nurturing, Intuitive, Relaxed, Imaginative, Quiet, Introverted, Night, Earth, Moon, Water, Softness, Moisture, Sadness, Contemplative, Downward seeking, Slow, Consuming, Cold, Winter, Rest, Structure, Contracting, Inward, Front of body, Mutable, Bending, Allowing, Negative, Empty, Odd Numbers, Shakti, the container."
"Yang represents the light and its characteristics include those that are “masculine”, active, producing, and rational such as: Enthusiastic, Direct, Mental, Excited, Outgoing, Logical, Day, Heaven/Air, Sun, Fire, Hardness, Dryness, Joy, Reactive, Upward seeking, Fast, Restless, Productive, Hot, Summer, Activity, Function, Expansive, Outward, Back of Body, Rigid, Unwavering, Dominant, Controlling, Positive, Full, Even Numbers, Shiva, the contents."
I'm sure that people will complain that Yin and Yang are just the oppressive social constructs of the Chinese patriarchy. I'm sure that is true. I really don't care. You could put it another way and it comes out the same. Who controls 70 percent of consumer spending, who came up with the idiocy of prohibition, who is focused on security instead of freedom, who is most likely to buy into idiocy like emotional intelligence and multicuturalism, who thinks people are more important than productivity, who doesn't care about agency and responsibility because every "victim" and problem is an infant, who thinks networking is more important than productivity, who votes for people because of the way they look, who prefers nesting over adventure, who likes drama more than sports, who is more concerned with distribution than production, who would rather look at the stars than go to them. Those old Chinese patriarchs were not idiots. Those that have eyes to see let them see.
Life is about balance but every once in a while people like to throw a monkey wrench in just to see what will happen. The expected outcome should be chaos but somehow we never learn moderation and cooperation.
