I think the shame I’m talking about is the one that gets you to think, “oh i shouldn’t do that”. What shame are you taking about?
I value people being able to make their work and craft an art. Like when they use to call those things straight up art in English. Things that were called art became something else and they needed different terms to describe what we’re actually doing; doing enough to just get by. There’s no good work anymore (for most).
I’m kinda conservative like that, when I start to get into really old paradigms.
People get bored, they think about how things work, they figure out ways to run the perfect system better. I’m really trying to see things your way, but it just doesn’t make sense to me. Perfect can always be improved. Maybe perfect isn’t the right word for what I’m thinking. The standard of perfect I’m going off of is “not broken in any way”.
Oh, so you’re a political scientist then. That’s cool. Hope you join the left economically, or create the new left some day.
I can accept that change will always disrupt the status quo and still hold the same understanding. I’m not saying how learning can effect people, but how curiosity effects people.
I think we can return to the garden. However, I think a perfect system is necessary to accomplish this. Not saying we’ll lose mortality; I’m glad that happened.
Virtual reality, medical science (the first reason to join a society in the first place), sustainable energy, space exploration. There’s plenty to go on after war. The occasional war can spark a lot of advancement I’m sure, but how much better would war time advancements be if they were occasional? Get more bang for the buck that way.
I see wars of the future being of the sort where one state A gets desperate enough to act against state B and either the state B retaliates or works with state A (such as develop technologies/improvements) to fix the problem.
I was thinking on when I was saying that your point was that dark implies light. I don’t think it does. You see, dark is the absence of light and black the absence of color. The existence of darkness precedes the occurrence of light, and in our universe the dark is the thing that exists somewhere before anything else. You might not see the point (and I may be high), but this is profound to me. I can see how a dark living can make the good things better, but I think there’s a better balance to be achieved than what we have.Life has enough troubles on its own.
