      SZNEL: I thought this was one of those other dimensions we were talking about, converging with our own.

      Baelan - Me too. You'd think it would be possible to Like and Thank someone in any dimension. But apparently not. Targets are there one moment and don't exist the next. That's what you get when you use Open Source. No offence, Admin.

      @SZNEL Eh, with the open source route it /can/ happen that way, but an open source route does also expose you to a much larger potential developer base. Look at Linux, after all. Plus, I don't think this site is open sourced...

      DL - Feeling a bit sheepish. I used Open Source to aim a cheap dig at the Admin. I'm not sure this site is open sourced either, but it has that feel, don't you think? I am a fan of open source as I prefer to screw up my software beyond all recognition myself. I had a Linux platform for years, used OpenOffice and Zope for a web DB (oh dear, I am dating myself).

      What does mankind need most?

      We need a gamechanger something that forces people to adapt the way we think (not what we think but how) about our lives and the impact we can create. We need to understand that we are individuals all of us, that most of our social bonds and limitations are self imposed, and also that our choices matter not because if their external effect but because we made them and that it changes us internally. Hopefully this makes sense and y'all don't think I'm pretentious or something..

      What does mankind need most?

      I believe that mankind needs to return to an agrarian lifestyle and reduce the influence of technology on the individual's psyche. With all the "advancements" we have developed over the years and all of the items of "time saving" and "convenience;" what have we accomplished?

      We must seek out Natural Abundance - land owned outright - producing more food and natural resources from that land than can be sold, traded, consumed or stored, and a life lived in the company of those we love -living, learning, laughing, growing and reestablishing the bonds we have with people and living energies.

      How have we benefited ourselves in anyway with dishwashers, cell phones that can distract us with any audio-visual - interactive stimulus we can imagine. We walk around all day staring at a tiny screen - to go to work and stare at a larger screen - and then come home and sit in front of the big screen with our families (if we are lucky)

      The era of the screen in the face and the phone in the hand must pass - and we must return to interaction with nature, animals, energies, family, friends and life.

      @MysticNick - I have to disagree, and I normally don't. Aquaponics, Hydroponics, and permaculture are unconventional farming methods, some of which are or can be entirely computer controlled. These technologies yield 2-3 times the amount of edibles than most conventional farms.

      Parts of your view have validity to me, but I make it a point never to move backwards, and always progress forward. When it comes to cellphones and TV's, most of our society is like toddlers messing with their first atari. Its a phase I believe mankind will eventually move out of. You probably see it a lot, but if you are focused on seeing the bad that's usually all you'll ever see.

      The advancements in Open Source software and hardware design have made some amazing changes. There are groups working on Open sourced CT scan machines which should take the cost of that specific machine from hundreds of thousands of dollars down to something every local doctors office will be able to afford. Others are working in the alternative farming, one of the permaculture farms in Arizona makes so much produce that they give away 98% of it, the rest is used in other products the farm creates, all the wastes are recycled.

      Our society may be filled with a large portion of complacent and zombie-ish people, but there is just as large a group of people trying to make a difference in the world. The reason you don't hear much out of them, is because they are buried in their work.

      To return to natural abundance and an agrarian lifestyle is not a move backwards - that would be a judgment you have based on your point of view. Our food is wholly unhealthy- as are our lifestyles in this country on the average.

      To increase one's interaction with living things will restore the psychological imbalance and detachment from real time that a HIGH PERCENTAGE of the American population seem to be suffering from - so much so people are getting run over and walking off cliffs - playing Pokemon Go.

      I never said eliminate electronics - nor did I dispute that certain technology is beneficial - arduino technology to run pumps and filters and monitor PH - and oxygen and ammonia levels - all beneficial and - could even be monitored from a smart phone.

      But - 90% + of the people out there with their faces in their cell phones and in a television screen are not productive - nor will they be because the end purpose of entertainment driven technology is not advancement but stagnation and distraction.

      Also I'm in the process of building an Aquaponic farmstead and Center for Aquaponic Studies and Alternative HVAC, Power and Housing - so again I'm not advocating a return to the stone age- I'm advocating judicious and wise use of technology where it benefits mankind on an individual and social level - and discarding it where it is not and using that time to reconnect with nature - which is the basis of all life.

      @MysticNick - Then I read that wrong, and apologize.
      As for the people who are playing pokemon Go, I play Pokemon Go sometimes, and trust me its not that involved of a game. If they aren't paying attention to their surroundings they deserve to get hit or walk off cliffs, I have no compassion for those people.

      No apology necessary friend - that's what discussions are for.
      Pleasure discussing things with you.

      What does mankind need most?

      What mankind needs most is simply 'LOVE'.

      Instead of fighting hate with hate, fight with love.
      Throw a lot of Rainbows and butterflies down to IS.
      The American president deserves a whole bunch of love. Throw him flowers and sing him a lullaby. Let him build his wall with pinata's instead of stones, pinata's for all the Mexican & US children to play & eat together.
      All those angry Americans in your country, give them a smile.
      How difficult is it to smile to one another?
      How difficult is to help each other?
      How many big buildings are there in the world? Buildings we only use for stupid things, like toeristic attractions, to get meetings with a few, to perform ceremonies. How many homeless would there be if we open these doors for them?
      Earth could provide us with everything, if we work together, there wouldn't be any hungry, naked, poor left.

      Give North Korea the permission to shoot bombs... filled with flowers.
      Instead of having a gun at hand, take a bunny in your hand.
      Instead of taking care of your guns, go and take care of a puppy.

      Compassion, love, caring. That's all society needs today. Don't give them wisdom, without giving them love. Don't give them more natural rescources without throwing a love-tantrum on them. Because what mankind does is destroying, fighting, wanting more, forcing power unto others. Unless we understand that we need to love and love is the only thing we need, we don't deserve anything else. Because everything will be used for making war, hurting others.

      Just like with the electricity. Someone provided us with light, what did we use it for? Making bombs and throwing it to each others homes to destroy them and force them to go away.

      How difficult is it to share? it seems the most difficult thing of all. So no, I'm saying clearly, people from US, Palestina, Korea, don't get anything else than love, because maybe you will learn to share. Don't call the land yours, the land is Earths. You don't own a land, Mother Earth owns it. Since when do people feel like they are superiour to Earth? When did people stop to listen to God? Jesus died for our sins, but clearly he didn't take them with him.

      What mankind needs is the seven virtues instead of the seven deadly sins.
      CASTITAS
      TEMPERANTIA
      CARITAS
      INDUSTRIA
      PATIENTIA
      BENEVOLENTIA
      HUMULITAS

      Don't think as I, think as WE. Do not use the word self-understanding, we don't need to understand our own. We need to understand. All-Understanding.
      WE Love, We Hope, We Dream. And never stop thinking like the child we once were.

      In all those movies from the Aliens coming down to earth, what's the thing they do? Mostly they are destroying us, because we are fucking up the planet. We make war with our own species. We hurt nature, we hurt each other. So that's the thing that needs to stop. Stop hurting, stop hating, stop making war.

      LOVE IS ALL WE NEED. How many centruries do need to go by, with some of us always telling this before people will finally understand?

      Not that I'm very good at the Love-thing, but anyways, I seem to be the one who says it.

      If we can't accept love, the Aliens have every right to come over with the goal of destroying mankind. Maybe then, and only then, we will learn to think as 'WE'. Maybe then, only then, we will stop making war on each other and work together. Because we need to do this TOGETHER. Not ALONE.

      TOGETHER!!
