The Zeitgeist Movement - The Transition

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes) When we, physicists look at outer space for alien life, We don't look for little green men, we look for type 1, type 2 and type 3 Civilizations. A type 1 civilization has harnessed its planetary power, they control earthquakes, the weather, volcanoes, they have cities on the ocean, anything planetary they control, that's type 1. A type 2 civilization is stellar, they've exhausted the power of the planet and they get their energy directly from their mother star. They don't just get a suntan on the week end, they use solar flare, they use the power of the sun itself to energize their huge machines. Eventually, they exhaust the power of a star and they go galactic. They harness the power of billions of stars within a galaxy. Now, what are we on this scale? We are type 0. We don't even rate on the scale. We get our energy from... Not from stars or galaxies, We get our energy from dead plants; oil and coal. Historians will look back and say: "Holy shit! They were making materials, selling them for corporation profit, over and over and over again with absolutely no reference to what the planet had and recycling protocoles and everything else. They were burning fossil fuels at a billion times the rate of their actual renewability???" They're gonna laugh at us, wondering what the hell kind of primitive dumbass species we actually were! If we even survive to reach that point! From an extraterrestial perspective, our global civilization is clearly on the edge of failure! And the most important task it faces: preserving the lives and well being of its citizens and the future habitability of the planet. This transition is also the most important because it's not clear if we're gonna make it. When we look at outer space, we see no evidence of type 1, 2 or 3 anywhere. No evidence whatsoever. The mathematics say that there should be thousands of type 1, 2 and 3 civilizations in the galaxy. We see no evidence of any, whatsoever. And why is that? Because the transition from Type 0 to Type 1 is the most dangerous of all transitions. We may not make it! I hope everyone out there will undestand that, either we change or we die! War, poverty, corruption, hunger, misery, human suffering will not change in a monetary system that is, there'll be very little significant change. It's going to take the redesign of our culture, our values and it has to be related to the carrying capacity of the earth, not some human opinion or some politician's notions of the way the world ought to be or some religious notions of the conduct of human affairs. So again, the generation now alive and our grand children's are the most important generations ever to walk the surface of the earth. We are the generations that will determine whether we make the transition from type 0 to type 1 or we destroy ourselves because of our arrogance and our weapons. Now everytime I read the newspaper, I see evidence of this historic transition from type 0 to type 1 and I am privileged to be alive at the most important era in the history of the human race: The transition from type 0 to type 1. The old appeals to racial, sexual and religious chauvinism into rabid nationalist ferver are beginning not to work. The new consciousness is developping which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed. We are one planet. JOIN THE MOVEMENT
