Water, Paper and records

one thing that always bothered me is how they try to convince the entire population on two fallacies: that water will end and that we should stop using paper.

 

The water will not end, it comes from heaven, called RAIN.

 

The paper comes from trees, they do not end, are vegetables and can be PLANTED.

 

That said I can talk about what made me come to the front of this computer right now: the great nostalgia that is to see things on paper, like newspapers, books and photos.

 

Remember the pictures? How were rare, as were important? As we bought our film and save it to click only those special pictures, and how we pray to reveal them, that they not burn?

 

Today buying a film camera is something considered vintage, and our pictures have become so commonplace that we do not even remember half of what we have stored in the huge memory of our computers.

 

Inside of me I have an alarm that tells me to print our photos to print our texts, as if a shadow approaching warning me that soon we will not have even more photos, or texts, or our computers. Something that is close to the apocalyptic end of all digital information and based on electric power, the world as we know it today.

 

 

Think of the school, in history, remember when your teacher taught you how much historical treasures in the form of records were lost in the catastrophic fire in the library of Alexandria?

 

Have you ever stopped to think how much information will be lost catastrophically if for some reason we get no further physical kind of energy and satellite internet?

If for some physical reason as solar flares the planet goes back to ancient times and throughout our culture again be based on material non-virtual?

 

Maybe I read too many books, I have too much depth in the history of mankind, which cyclically undergoes great changes and great Shiva’s upheavals, where everything that is known and taken granted just dissolves under the earthy nature, move tectonic plates, volcanoes erupt and the entire planet becomes diferent, cities and countries disappear and all that remains for future ages are records that are from time to time uncovered and celebrated as great discoveries of our own history.

 

Anyway here’s my thought, I hope I have time to put on paper all these things that are important to me, I hope you do the same.

 

And about music, please record enterprises: VINYL, because this will be saved indefinitely, with all its records mechanically recorded, music in their endless spiral of acetate, which may be forever revealed in simple non-electric appliances dependent.

 

And about paper, the best part: it is recyclable.

NEWS

I was watching Batman right now (the second, The Dark Knight), and a scene where Bruce Wayne is with the TV on the news I had the idea of this post. In the scene in question appears the fake Batman Joker torturing, threatening Gotham if Batman does not appear  and blah blah .. the question is:

THE NEWS SHOULD SHOW INSTEAD OF HORRIBLE SCENES , LIKE  TORTURE AND MURDER OF CHILDREN , THIEVES dissatisfied BURNING HOUSES AND RESIDENTS  AND OTHER ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY OUR STUPID KIND show the second part of these same news ,as the condemnation of the killers, these same murderers going to prison, or other types of things that leave us equally satisfied and at least with a little hope in this same stupid species  as people adopting abandoned animals, the city installing more bins on the streets, the testimony of people who are happy because they stopped smoking or using cocaine, available jobs, all that would be REALLY HELPFUL AND SOOTHING??

Does the damn media has not realized that this kind of news, despite generating great ratings DOES NOTHING TO MAKE  OUR SPECIES LESS STUPID??

The same people who are watching this news and vibrating in negative patterns of assimilation could be assisting in the evolution of mankind if they were vibrating in ANOTHER TUNING!

The joint vibration that comes from witnessing the horror and feeling helpless in the face of it only aggravates our situation, and worse, still STIMULATES other sick minds with the same ideas. Often people suffering from depression get even worse watching such news, and how addictive they can not stop, because television hypnotize humans with their colors, images and sounds.

So why not use the same TV and these same stories in order to enhance the humanity? Showing justice being done, the crime being punished, the culprits being arrested, freedom being reached by persons attached to addictions, those responsible for the cities showing services to the population?

I stopped watching TV news for more than four years since the news of the boy being dragged away by monsters in Rio de Janeiro that does not bother to remove the child seat belt. This same news makes me sick today.

After this atrocity, I passed a long time without watching the news, but even so news travels through the mouths of people who do not filter what they watch, and knew that this father had throwed the daughter of the window of the building.

Later, even running away from  the TV ,through the internet  I knew this stepfather who would insert needles in a baby! WE SIMPLY CAN  NOT ESCAPE THIS KIND OF NEWS! JOURNALISTS PLEASE CHANGE THE NEWS ! The atrocities will continue to occur, but why do not report ARRESTED The stepfather who molested BABY baby instead  of showing him tortured almost to death?

We’re alive for one reason and one reason ONLY: learn how to be BETTER PEOPLE!

Life is not a coincidence combinations of biological factors, it is a gift, A TEST, each life is like a year in school, and we just have to use this time to improve ourselves. WE ARE NOT HERE TO be WEALTH, to get FAMOUS, TERMS A BRILLIANT CAREER, but for us PEOPLE TO BE BETTER! For death comes to all, your home, your things, your career will stay here, but IT IS YOUR EVOLUTION  that will accompany you to your next step, your next life, because this samsara ends only when we are PERFECT. AND WE CAN, AND SHOULD BE PERFECT!

But we must begin not by others, but BY OURSELVES!

Use every day to learn and be a better person, and journalists collaborate with your part by giving hope, showing what we all want to see: THE SOLUTION NOT THE PROBLEM!

I said that, I withdraw and leave you to reflect, that even if there is nothing, even if life ends here, yet would NOT BE BETTER FOR EVERYONE if we lived with a purpose beyond our own selfishness?
