The Unknown

Is there alien life at our level or beyond in our galaxy?  We just don’t know, the possibilities are there, yes, but we could very well be this galaxy’s most intelligent beings, a failed experiment, or failing rather.  Too caught up in our primitive mindsets… there are an exceptional few, however, a few that seems to be growing ever more and more abundant, as the old guard dies out.  I can only hope this love for knowledge persists and doesn’t die out with the adoption of television and reality television baby sitters and influences.  We think we are at the zenith of our race’s advancement and, in a sense, we are correct.  We are entering the death throws of something that should have ended after World War Two.  Fiat currencies and the illusions of power, that is what the world is focused on, rather than things that actually matter.

We, as a race, need to enter a different state of being.  We, as a race, need to graduate from our mythologies (religions), oligarchies, monarchies and other such creators of slaves.  We are, all of us, twenty-first century beings, we don’t need baby sitters telling us what to eat, what not to eat, whom we can marry, whom we cannot… we are adults. Our choices shape our lives.  Those whom we grant the power of governance need to remember that their choices don’t matter in our lives.

Life is a journey, an experience, it isn’t supposed to be mapped out and planned.  The unknown is not to be feared, it is to be expected, sure we can predict some things, but life happens; freak accidents, unlikely recoveries, etc.  What matters in life is not what happens to you or what you own, it is how you deal with what happens to you.
