Re: "LIFE" from....an "inside" account:
You seem to indicate that we are in a doomed situation. I would say bleak prospects if things continue as it is but not doomed as yet. This situation could well carry on for another hundred years without much change.
That is not the prospect most normal people are after.
When I mentioned "Ask for help" it does not mean ask them to solve our problems for us. I meant asking for advice, asking for focus and direction. Those simple things mankind cannot get any consensus on until it is too late. It is not that mankind is stupid, it normal is that the powers in charge are not doing it for selfish/greed/other reasons.
So unless the DNA of mankind improves radically to make us able to self salvation, we would indeed be doomed!.
