Part 2: The Anti-Space Race Phenomenon

From what I understand, the space race was about whether the U.S. or the U.S.S.R was the most disciplined, if discipline meant creating durable vessels for humans to go somewhere other than the planet which sustains life. So basically we flew up into space, and planted our flag. I think we won, but I might be mistaken. Anyways, there is no U.S.S.R anymore so we either won, or definitely lost, depending on whether or not it is good to remain, which seemed to be a question in the space race: 'is it best to stay on planet Earth?' With so much air pollution and nuclear violence possible, this is a question we have to immediately begin exploring.


I would welcome your visionary thoughts, here.

You don't think words themselves move your mind?

Well, I just learned what 'hermeneutics' and 'exegesis' mean. So it is possible I was just saying that. But what I meant was: for me things like the words in the Bible for example, the feeling of how I'd imagine the sounds of the words is enough for me. I mean I love finding more and more meanings- it's like every line is perfect- but probably some- anyways, I think loving people would be fine. We are one what? I mean I guess you're right and I'd have to think about it more. I don't think it would change my opinion that much. Anyways, I just now thought, 'we' implies mutual thinking of that- so it's hard to say 'we are the universe' because most of the universe probably doesn't have that shared agreement with us. There's just not even thinking about it in that way. Yesterday I had a question about embodying evolutionary power of the universe and having evolutionary power with the universe- I didn't ask my question though. I don't even really know what it is, just something about our having that same power makes me indignant or something.

Is this very off topic?

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
