Great thread and thanx for posting this. I hope and believe in a new beggining. Maybe if I leave this damned place. What a sad world , with very little hope left. It is not the end, but the time of the ends fullfillment. We were in the end all along.The new beggining is waiting to be found. I see technology finding a proper balance in its purpose here on earth. Robot like people will try and ruin what is left, but the meek will remain to rebuild what was once lost with a new understanding of technology.. If we are lucky, the earth just sheds us like skin and returns to a healthy state. Who needs us anyway? Mother earth doesn't! I am dreaming again... beam me up Scotty!
