Thought for the day 13th of July

The ability to laugh at yourself, with yourself, and by yourself is hugely underrated.

A sense of humour can be a major defence against minor troubles, and it is the greatest weapon we as humans have.

Remember: time spent laughing is time spent with the Gods.

Sustainability

There is an old Cree Indian proverb which goes something like the following:

Only when the last tree has died,
the last river has been poisoned,
the last fish has been caught.
Only then will we realize that money cannot be eaten.

It’s a very true quote, greed is not sustainable. Money enables trade and some say that makes the world a better place. Others say that it encourages greed, which is bad.

You can't eat money
As humans, do you believe that we have a moral right to preserve the planet? Should we attempt to keep ecosystems balanced and share resources between all species, or is it right that we use our inelegance and teamwork to take more than we give?

Climate change is happening, it is only in the early stages at the moment, but it is happening never the less. Is it down to humans, cycles of the earths orbit, or something else, who knows.

Christians believe that we have a responsibility to care for all the creatures of the Earth, and that is why we have been made superior.

What does sustainability say to you? To me it means harmony between all forms of life. It means living peacefully with the environment and not degrading it.

Will man learn the lesson that is sustainability is vital for his existence? Who knows…

Thought for the day 1st of October

As humans, in our lifetime, it is thought that on average we only  use around 10% of our brains storage space.

My question is, why did evolution make us that way?

It is not just more stuff to go wrong? Could it be that we are destined to live much longer in the future?
