Davos Hope……?!

Hopefully The Wizards at Davos this week, start seeking Architects… And Urgently!
                               Read more here.

The WORLD doesn’t have ‘The Design‘…..To replace Americanism, and its turbocharged engine: Capitalism. The wizards are too busy living it up in Davos, and networkking to make ‘More and More’!
That’s because the Elite want their Cake and Still Eat it!!  For them Today’s ‘Americanism’ is THE Design.
The only design they know is one that requires the cake to be devoured until Exctintion!  For Them in the short term, at the expense of The Exploited!  Fairness is about all having access to Our Fair Share.  Read here.
Greed is Not a Virtuous Value found in Nature, and yet us Humans (or the elite Humans) Believe Greed is Good!
The Planet is like OUR truely awesome ‘Cake’ provided by Nature, but devouring it like we are, Nature has long given up being able to keep it ‘Our Cake.’  ‘Our Cake‘ is our ONLY real food:  Everything we NEED comes from it!
We have already eaten half the cake, and now wondering why ‘something is missing’!
One Point Zero is THE Answer:  A Fair and Flourishing World, where ‘Our Cake’ can repair itself again.
THE Design needs to be one that Eliminates The Chasm, The Divide, and The Void.  This is why the Republicans and Democrats are confused by the new Social Democrates wants….: Climate and Socialism are aligned as one, symbiotic, needing each other for their solution. Without Radical Socialism, The Climate Problem will NEVER be Solved. And without the Climate Threat, Socialism will never be contemplated by the Greedy Elite Capitalists.
Too many people see socialism as Communism, but there is a fully liberating ‘Socialism’, and it starts with us all being given Our Fair share of the Natural resources of Nature’s planet. We are then free to do with that with what we aeach personally desire.
The Davos Wizards will never look there, because they will lose WHAT they are, and struggle to find WHO they are?

UNIPCC Madrid: More Wasted Time!

Where are Modern Day Architects?
Certainly None in the 22 000 IPCC people attending the UN meeting in Madrid! 
Old Words of ‘Appropriate Wisdom’:       

              “WE ARE CALLED TO BE ARCHITECTS OF THE FUTURE, NOT ITS VICTIMS.”

– Buckminster Fuller

Time is running Out for Radical Re-design:
Where are Modern Day Architects?
Certainly None in the 22 000 IPCC people attending the UN meeting in Madrid! 

The only ‘Architects’ that I see around, are those who don’t seem to buy into Our Human Existential Imperative:

That to Live Within One Planet’s bioregenetaive resources:

One Point Zero world. A world where there is No Chasm. A world where the Earth Overshoot Day, ‘Book of Accounts‘ only has ‘black ink’ figures. That is the mandatory, highest condition, of  ‘The Design‘ brief.

Being an architect for the ‘cop out’ 1.5 Degree C or 2.5 Degree C ‘Acceptable Warming’, ‘New world’ design, is not the brief Buckminster would have accepted.

I’m convinced that in his context he would have said that that is a the job of the Victim Architect.  ‘We’ are starting with the ‘Wrong Brief‘, because we fear the ‘Three Red Arrows‘ reality, and in that fear we will be designing ours selves into ‘victimhood‘.

I wonder if Mr Buckminster believed in ‘Magic’?  Magic in Design’? Read more here!

Each day of the ‘Current Apathy’, brings Revolution closer, and out of neccessity now, this is becoming THE ONLY path for Solution!

A Revolution that brings on The Perfect Recession that saves Humanity from the Greed we cannot resist of Thin Air Money. Read here.

‘To Be’ OR ‘Not to BE’?????

‘The Chasm’:  Splitting Humanity

The Chasm: It’s not quite about ‘Heaven and Hell sides across the Chasm yet, but no physical chasm on our planet today, can start to help us imagine the magnitude of our One Point Seven and increasing, Chasm between, Nature and Humanity.

‘The Chasm’ is the ever-widening disconnect in the relationship between Humanity and Nature. A ‘Silent Divorce’, because on the one side, through our Western Ideology, Humans are anthropocentrically arrogant, and on the other side Nature, as the ‘Higher Power‘ couldn’t care less!!

The first fracture in The Relationship was back in 1970, as we started demanding more from Nature, than Nature could provide. Back then few were aware of its ‘relationship severing’ significance for human life.

Ever since then, that crack has been growing wider and wider to become the vast Chasm of today.  Nature has long abandoned us, and is taking its natural corrective action burgeoning imbalance we are creating. Nature‘s goal is protection of the planet ecosystem, and eradication of the forces challenging the constant process of re-balance, and where necessary to establish new equilibrium free of the agitators (Humans!).

‘To BE’ or ‘Not to BE’?: The UK to follow Australia?

In every election around the world there is a chance for ‘US’, the voters, to ‘Have Our Say‘ on Our Extinction Problem!
12th December 2019:  The UK electorate have their chance to choose?
 ‘To BE’, or ‘Not to BE?  Their options are very clear. 
What will their decision be?:
Read the ‘Extinction’, or ‘Not Extinction’, choice, Australians faced on 18 May 2019 here:


In every single election around the world, it will be as clear as in Australia what is the  ‘To BE‘, and what the ‘Not To BE‘  choices are.

Once we understand THE Problem:   The Choice is then ‘Black and White’.

So YES, we can do ‘something’:

We MUST vote. Surely it MUST be ‘To BE‘!

‘IT’ is not ‘Climate Change’ Stupid?

 The REAL Inconvenient Truth!! ‘Our Problem’ IS

Our Problem is not one of Fossil Fuels and / or Emissions.  These are symptoms of a much Deeper problem! A Problem that Politicians and even the UN fail to acknowledge. It takes Courage to Face The REAL Inconvenient Truths, and that courage is short in today’s world of Identity Politics!

Our Problem is one of a flawed Ideology, one that requires us all to compete, consume, and strive for more and more ‘To Be Happy’. (Whether that be striving at the individual, community, nation or global levels. Globally ‘we’ group of nations competing against each other, and then the whole of Humanity as a group, against Nature)!)   

Americanism is the flawed ideology, a virtual religion / culture. This isn’t about Americans, as the huge unhappiness in the USA today is America challenged by Americanism.

Globally, everything’ is in the process of being globally ‘algorithmised’, into a ‘systematised’ way of living, and a way of relating to each other, with Americanism, and economic liberty as the dream! Facebook, Google, Amazon, AirBnb, Uber, Phones, Twitter, YouTube, etc…. ‘They’ and many more, not just US brands, are all built to make us interact in a certain, non-soulful way, around an Americanism ideology. This supposedly to help us be more Successful, and Economically Liberated.  

The Engine:    A turbo charged form of capitalism, is Americanism’s powerful, enabling engine.

The Fuel:  A never-ending supply of human printed money, linked to ever-expanding Debt, is this engine’s, illimitable, high-octane fuel.

The Elusive Dream:   The whole system, and our own use of personal debt, lures us into thinking we have a perpetual growth machine that will bring each of us closer to ‘The Dream Life’ and its Happiness ‘prize’.

The current initiatives around the world are about Picking off this system’s easy fruit and doing a Green Energy, Blood Transfusion. This ‘remedy’ on a deeply flawed socio-economic system, built around americanism ideology, won’t solve the problem. At best it will slightly delay inevitable Extinction.

Of course, Decarbonising is needed, and fast! But decarbonising ‘something’ that is way too large, and in lifestyle design, is unfit for enabling humans to belong sustainably on the planet, is not Beginning with an End in Mind. An ‘End’ that is the begining of Sustainable life for Humans in genertions to come.

These adhoc actions, may seem expedient, and to be “at least doing something”, but it distracts us from the urgently needed, Extinction Prevention remedy. 

We don’t have time for mistakes as large as this……!!!!!

The under lying ideology is what needs to be radically changed, and this needs a unified, global effort, and us, the electorates’ around the world to want this change.

 A Key Part of any UK Plan must be acknowledging that without Global plan, individual nation action is putting the ‘Extinction Prevention’ priority in the wrong place. This needs the UK plan to include radical, confrontational, Global Activism by the government and its people: For a Global Consensus on a Global Plan for Ideology change. Including, enforced, punitive sanctions for those nations (like the USA currently), not participating or obstructing consensus building. This is where justice will start.

Given the state of global unity today, the leadership of the UK, if it chose to go it alone for even a Zero Carbon goal, would be committing almost all UK inhabitants, to a foolish path of increasing misery.

This while ‘the world’ looks on protecting their economies, and the current Humanity Path to Extinction, is materially unchanged. Trying to keep the economy afloat to provide jobs while it is been downsized by between 50-70% is an impossible task. That’s the magnitude of the change ‘we’ need, unless one is a Green Growth ‘sucker’.

Green Growth is a fatally flawed dream that is favoured by the elite, because it is based on the ideology of today, bringing the solution for the problem. It seen as a ‘positive solution’ for Our Problem, so like candy, it is very palatable, but bad for us! 

The ideology today is THE Problem, and as such, ‘it’ will never be able to ‘Fix Itself’.  

All the neo-liberal political parties around the world punt for Green Growth, because they are built on Americanism, and it personally works, The Dream’ for them.

It’s criminal……! Extinction will Prove it!

If we want to avoid The Extinction path and change course within a democracy context, ‘we’ have to move (quickly) to the point where: 

The Majority, ie more that 50% of all democratic electorates around the world, ‘Have to ‘Despise’ the current ideology.  That is you, me, your friends, business and the political party leadership….! 

When more than 50% of the UK (the World) electorate ‘hates’ / opposes ‘our’ enslving Americanism ideology, the road will be clear to take The Right Action: The Right action that is needed to Solve our Extinction problem.

The problem is that ‘we’ are all part of the ideology today. Many either deeply addicted, or enslaved, and so, mostly can’t see its ‘Extinction Enabling’ flaws. 

The Green Peace Manifesto needs to be about this Ideology Change, rather than ad hoc tampering with some of The Symptoms of the flawed ideology.  

Central to this is Money:  Its place in our society, how it’s created, how it’s valued, and how it flows around society. This is a fundamental change in the way society is organised today.

We must demand this change, or else face Extinction.

Time to Confront!

The Green Growth Myth: The Kids will Live with The Truth!

Green Growth:   The Fatal Illusion of a Blood Transfusion Solution!

A ‘Simple Remedy’ for ‘Climate Change’:     A ‘mere’ ‘Blood Transfusion’…

It could be said, that the Energy we humans need to ‘Fuel Our  Everyday Lives‘, whether that be food, fossil fuels, electricity, it is as important as our life sustaining Blood. Without either we would cease to exist!

In that view, many  humans (maybe most?) believe the Solution to Climate Change is:

To ‘just’ replace our Fossil Fuel, contaminated ‘Blood’, with clean, green, Renewable Energy, ‘Blood’..

A ‘simple’ Humanity wide ‘Blood Transfusion‘:

And only needing a short ‘pitstop‘, to change fuels, and then enable us to ‘just carry on’ as fast as we can, towards the only ‘Success’ we know.

More and more, bigger and bigger, faster and faster, using the deepening, rutted path, THE System makes ‘us’ follow today.

Our insatiable Consumption, is its trench digging machine, and domination and destruction of our scarce Natural Resources its mode.

That’s The Green Growth story!    Our Self-Extinction it’s lethal goal!

Is a ‘Blood Transfusion‘ REALLY, ALL we need?   OR……..

Do we have a much more ‘Chronic Condition‘ problem?   One that is also linked to a ‘disorientated’ mental state:

A state that has hypnotised us to accept today’s ‘Human System Goal’ of an ‘Off Purpose‘, course, as a flawed, Human ‘Success‘?

It would appear that  in this disorientated we can’t even see our chronic, ‘Chronc State‘, and can’t see our vulnerable context in the vast ‘Nature System’.

Humans Defying Nature.

Who will win?
The ‘Human System’ or the ‘Nature System’ ?

Nature is ultimately in control of THE only, TRULY important ‘System’: THE Cosmic System, that will be around forever and the One :

Eventually, our future existence, is ONLY going to be about how Honestly we Humans are able to assess our ‘Holistic Health‘, and The Powers that Be are doing that Today!

 

Being Human…. Our Spiritual Quest

How do you define ‘Spiritual’: Not ‘Religious’, but Spiritual?

One Point Zero defines, a fully developed ‘Spiritual Human‘ as one who has ‘Their Truths’:  That being their unwavering answers to the Five Questions below:

1.   Is there a God, a Higher Power, or a Higher Being?
2.   Is there Life, or some form of ‘Other Existence’ After Death?
3.   What is the Purpose of Life? (The Generic Human Purpose.
4.   What is the relationship between Humans & all other living things on this planet?
 5.   How, and by Whom, was ‘This All’ created?

 

Being Human:          Finding ‘The Answers to The Big 5 Questions’

All religions provide a Truth’s, ‘recipe book‘: The religion’s ‘prescriptive answers’ to the above Five Questions.

If one sets out to truly explore those answers, and all ‘The Truths‘ and ‘The story’ behind them, to see whether they could fit with one’s soul, then one is following a ‘Spiritual Quest’.

If in this exploration one uses one’s full Spiritual Capability on that Quest, AND gets to the point where one’s answers feel ‘virtually absolute’, one is at ‘Conviction’, having arrived at One’s Truths.

(Strong conviction! ie Unshakable in severe challenge, and yet also accepting, respecting and valueing of another’s Differing Truths. The Truths by definition can never be beyond absolute doubt. Acceptance of this mystical dichotomy, and yet having conviction of one’s own truths, is what defins a fully Spiritually developed human. 

The process of the ‘Quest to Conviction‘ is the key, not just ‘instant’ or ‘tick off’ answers’ that lack conviction. This ‘Quest’ could involve a life time, exploring many ‘alternate Truths, offered by different religions or other true Spiritual ‘schemes’, along the way. Conviction is the only test of ‘quest success’ or arrival’, but the journey is spiritual growth and development in itself.

This could be a life long quest, and the key is drawing on our human, Spiritual Capability, in conjunction with our other four, primary human capbalilities.  (Our human Spiritual Capability (above) is distinct from our, Rational, Emotional, Physical, or Relationship Capabilities)

Essentially in arriving at these Convictions, one then has one’s ‘Beyond Human’ context for living:  The Higher compass for Higher Purpose and Meaning, that surely is the vital meaning context for one’s whole life? In terms of The Void, as defined by One Point Zero, one is then deemed a fully, Spiritual Human, and living outside ‘The Void’. ‘The Void’ consists of all those void of their answers to the Big 5 Questions.

A’Spiritual Atheist’ vs A ‘Spiritually Void Atheist’?

In being Fully Spiritual, it is quiet possible to be an atheist (Don’t believe in a God) but still have coherent, strong, answers  (with conviction) to the big Five Questions, and thus also be outside of The Void. The atheist in answering question 1, may for example believe in a Higher Power, as Nature: 

A Deep Ecologist, who is an atheist, free of any formal religious connections, could believe that Nature is their Higher Power, and with that they have ‘their constructed’ Laws of Nature that they use as their ‘Higher Life’ compass. In essence they know there will sometimes be personal consequence for going against The Higher Power’s ‘Rules’. ‘Rules’ that are inviolate and required for Nature to ‘manage its Higher Context, Ecosystem and its Universe.

The problem associated with the ballooning spiritual Void, is that more and more people are becoming ‘anti-religion’, and declaring themselves “Atheists”. In that blanket declaration, they are seeing fit to renounce any need for further Spiritual exploration:  Walking away from ‘The Spiritual quest of confronting the Big 5 Questions.’

The VoidA Cancer’ in Today’s Chronic Human Condition?

The Void is ‘Unhealthy’, because people inside it have no ‘Beyond Human’ context for living, and so define their own ‘Team Human / Team Nature’ context. Often that goes further to no ‘Beyond Self’ context for living. In today’s increasingly affluent world, with more and more people pursuing Freedom as the goal, with Money the key to that goal, and with more and more ‘Thin Air Money’ all around us, we end up with what we are seeing as pervasive in society today:

Selfishness, Narcissism, Greed, and the soulless, guilt free, Destruction and Exploitation of all the Natural Resources on this planet as if they are merely of utilitarian value. There is no cosmic context of Belonging, and how these respources and their use fit with human existence.

In ‘The Void’, each sets their own life rules, and is only accountable to themselves or a few other chosen humans, we end up having anarchy and the pervasive loss of moral / ethical framework that is happening today.

      Without Nature We Are Nothing

 

Our Global Cancer: Metastatized by Americanism

Climate Change: Nature’s Extinction Warning

September 11, the Global Financial Crisis, and our current multi-crisis dilemma!  All warnings that Our Path needs a radical correction.

The amazing Human resolve, ‘solved’ these enormous attacks on ‘The System’.   each time, we denied our cancerous state.  But now Nature has stepped in with the terminal Extinction Warning. We won’t win this one, so best we confront the Cancers.

It goes without saying:  We are living in deeply unsettling times. Both in the USA, and globally, there is deep existential exploration for ‘The Answers’, but surely we first need to diagnose the problem? And Trump can’t be to Blame?

I wonder if you also see that these times are manifestation of a long deteriorating, Chronic Human Condition, and how it has notably intensified in recent years?

So, let’s trace this ‘Chronic Condition’, back to its Three Cancers. Cancers that largely went ignored for decades, but are now each in chronic state and further, metastitising off each other:

Cancer One:  ‘The Divide’   (The Wealth Gap and more..)

This is the ever increasing ‘gap’ between the wealthy and non-wealthy, the so-called Rich and Poor, The Elite and non-elite, The 1% and the 99%, etc. Whether The Divide be between Nations, inside Nations, or intergenerational, neither its existence, nor its growth can be denied.

Wealth is directly linked to Power. Increasingly powerless, those on the other side of The Divide, are revolting with anger and resolve. turning against ‘The System’, they see as the creator of their downward spirally, increasingly hopeless predicament.

Both in the US and globally, this ever-increasing Divide is undoubtedly one of the biggest contributors to society unrest today, and its cancer has reached chronic state.    Read more on The Divide here.

Cancer Two: ‘The Void’  (A Lack of a ‘Cosmic Context’ for Living )

‘The Void’, is essentially the manifestation of the non-existence of any ‘Beyond Human’, Higher Context, for Human Life. Ie  Morally / Ethically and ‘Grand Truths’ contexting of how us humans fit in to the greater scheme of The Planet and The Universe?

Essentially this a Spiritual Void, but beyond a narrow, religious connotation.

Religion has largely provided this ‘context’ in the past, but today, Religion, Science, Technology, and New Age Spirituality, in their unique ways, have all made their significant, albeit sometimes unintended, contributions to The Void’s rapid ‘ballooning’.

Americanism ideology, with capitalism as its engine, and human created money as its blood, has almost become the new, and unlikely, ‘Spiritual’ context for Life.

Where Unfettered Freedom and Hedonistic Happiness are deemed ‘Spiritual Success’, Materialism the mode, and Money the means. Void of any ‘Higher Belonging‘ context this has produced the dysfunctional, fear driven, hedonistic, ego-centred, ‘money grabbing’, society that we see today.  One increasingly disconnected from Nature.

Humanity is in a cancerous, Spiritual Belonging crisis, and The Void is its ‘witness of account‘.  Read more on The Void here.

Cancer Three:  The Chasm   (Nature and Humanity)

The Chasm is the ever-widening ‘relationship impasse’ between Nature and Humanity. It started with a fracture back in 1969, and as the graph below shows has increased in size ever since. This to our current situation where our total human demand on Nature’s bioregenerative resources, requires more than One Point Seven EarthsThat 70% more than Nature’s, One Earth, full ‘output’, can provide. In a US context:

If everyone in the world, lived like the average American today, ‘we’ would need almost Five Planets!! (All the Ecological Footprint data is thanks to the Global Footprint Network.)

Climate Change is really just one of the many symptoms of The Chasm, and undeniable evidence of the cancer of this long-broken relationship between Nature and Humanity, Read the full script on The Chasm here.

“It’s all about ‘Our Human Belonging’ ….Stupid!”

The Divide, ‘The Void, and ‘The Chasm, the cancers of Our Chronic Condition are all pointing to a deep Human Belonging Crisis. This at the Individual, Society, Nations, and ‘Cosmic’, levels. The world’s adoption of Americanism ideology as our ‘religion’ is the seemingly fatal flaw.

To avoid a cancerous demise, we urgently need a dramatic course change towards a, ‘Cancer Free’, ‘New Belonging’ context. No nation is immune, nor exempt from being vital collaborators in this cancer like, Humanity Existential Challenge.

As ‘THE most powerful nation in The World’, The World looks to the US to lead the way to this ‘New Belonging’, context, but the path is short cutting us to Exctinction.

In the past two years, Trump has shown the world clearly how he sees this ‘New Belonging’ working!  Both for himself and America: His stance epitomises Americanism, but just for America.

The World has understandably ‘Not reacted well’!

At the same time………

America has moved into its own ‘deepest ever’ National Belonging Crisis.
But is it Fair to Blame Donald Trump?

Trump merely is a product of Amercanism, and a growing number of Americans are are seeing the cancer of Americanism. This isn’t about Americans, but rather about and Americanism ideology that has overtaken  The World.

In our ever increasingly secular world,  and the vast and expanding Spiritual Void, Americanism is now a de factor religion, and the most popular one globally by far.

At the heart of the ideology is a illusion of Freedom. This beyond Democratic freedom, but rather an Individual Freedom Dream linked to Economic Freedom ‘Success’. A Freedom now free of any Spiritually based moral / ethical restraint, and driven by an algorithim that promises more unconstrained freedom with more money, wealth and power. A Freedom that works on Machaivellian Competion requiring Domination and Exploitation of others.   This breeds a cancerous Freedom that is void Responsibility:  Resposibility to some bigger, cosmic story.

Facebook (and all its social media offshoots), Google, Amazon, Apple, Uber, AirBnB, all the Chinese equivalents, etc are the pervaders of Americanism. Systemitizing, human relations, to we are all Americanised in contact, with capitalist profits as the Only Goal.  In Nature is our source of solution. We did belong deeply ‘ONCE”, and theirin lies hope….

     Without Nature We Are Nothing!

In that line is ‘The Bigger Cosmic Story‘!

Extinction Despair…..? Learning from the Aussies…….

In every election around the world there is a chance for ‘US’, the voters, to ‘Have Our Say‘ on Our Extinction Problem!
Read the ‘Extinction’, or ‘Not Extinction’, choice, Australians face on 18 May 2019:

Click on the pic:

In every single election around the world, it will be as clear as in Australia what is the  ‘To BE‘, and what the ‘Not To BE‘  choices are.

Once we understand THE Problem:   The Choice is then ‘Black and White’.

So YES, we can do ‘something’:

We MUST vote. Surely it MUST be ‘To BE‘!

America’s Tribal War: Confronting ‘Americanism’

The Republicans Are Dead to Planet Earth…….

Reports that the GOP is coming around on climate change have been greatly exaggerated. They will never be part of the solution. Let’s move on.

Read the full, shocking New Republic article here

The Year is 2019. The century being the 21st:

These are supposedly the ‘Wisest of Wise’ Humans:

Elected Leadership!!!! In fact the leaders of The Most Powerful Nation on the Planet, so in many ways they ‘Leading The World’!

One could excuse them as being ‘Dinosaurs in Evolutionary Development’, but the truth is, they are selfish, macheveillian deceptors, of the highest level:

Looking after themselves, and their cronies, myopically believing ‘Americanism’ will ‘Solve Our Problem’, because ‘Americanism’ feeds their everyt need. It will never solve OUR Problem, because:

‘Americanism’ is THE Problem!…… and

…… They are its current Day Architects.

This Republican stance, is a Humanitarian  Crime of THE Most Serious Order:

       One  Deserving of The Full Force of Opposition.
