Sunrise: Sidney by the Sea
Everywhere today human beings search for an answer that will save us. Tens of thousands of physicists with massive technology seek the elementary building block or “God” particle that our universe must be built upon. Global efforts to create a “New World Order” and Global Governance framed upon the same ancient human cycle of ignorance. Genetic engineering, synthetic intelligence and manipulating the secret of “life” itself. The origin of Consciousness. Cures for disease, cell degeneration and aging. The battle to discover the one idea that will save us rages everywhere in our world, today. Yet in every case, the same cycle of ignorance remains. The secret, simple truth is that there is only one discovery that will, at last, save us and rescue human kind from extinction and oblivion. We just have yet to recognize it. That one simple discovery will be to find a way for human beings to truly care for each other to the same degree and intensity that we now care for our own personal, isolated selves. Find that answer, create that new dimension in human thought, build a solid, indestructible platform of logic, reason and order that makes absolute “sense” to CARE for other human beings and all life…and nothing will be the same again. Find the answer that will make logical, rational common sense to care for other life in this universe just as “self-preservation” now makes absolute, indelible and unquestioned sense to us now, and the destructive cycle and ignorance will be broken. And you and I will step into a new world ethos and a new human awareness. The foundation for a new human civilization will have been laid. Human life on Earth will begin again, in a different way. And nothing will ever be the same again. It is a wild and stray idea, but it just happens to be true. We all just have to piece together an impossible puzzle and make a quantum leap in the collective human mind. And we must find that answer and escape primeval ignorance together. This is the time when humankind finally breaks the cycle. It is about new ideas. It is about keeping hope, faith and light alive in spite of terrible and ancient darkness. It is about human beings creating a miracle in the collective human mind together and doing the impossible that has never been done before. This is the age they will remember. This is the age they will talk about forevermore. Where it finally began. Where humankind finally found the light, together. Where human beings finally understood logically and absolutely why they must care.
This will be the age.
