What Survival Skills Do You Got? [Can We Adapt to a Ruined World?]
Tonight I have been at the season finale of Doc Lounge here in Varberg. This is concept where you mingle together in a lounge with bar and then watch a documentary together. This time they where showing the Norwegian documentary North of the Sun. Here you can see a 6 seconds Vine of the event.
When does change become the new Normal? [What is Normal?]
Here is is part of one of my favorite quotes from the book Hogfather by Terry Pratchett
STARS EXPLODE, WORLDS COLLIDE, THERE’S HARDLY ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE WHERE HUMANS CAN LIVE WITHOUT BEING FROZEN OR FRIED, AND YET YOU BELIEVE THAT A … BED IS A NORMAL THING. IT IS THE MOST AMAZING TALENT. — DEATH, Hogfather
The Movie North of the Sun is about making a decision about living under extreme circumstances to the point where it almost becomes Normal. It’s like Terry says. We have this amazing talent to adapt. To think of and see things as normal. I read somewhere that it takes about 3 months to make something a new Normal.
With this in mind could you step away from your house and your possessions and never look back? What would it take?
These Surfers in the Movie did it. And we maybe will have to do some day too.
The Blue Ocean Planet [Lets go Blue]
In Star Wars, our planet would be designated not as a desert nor as a forest planet, but as a water planet. In media we are constantly label things that is good for the environment as Green when we instead should label things as Blue. Lets go Blue!
In North of The Sun they spend their winter picking 3 ton of plastics of the beach. We have filled our oceans with it and that is just a small part of it. We are spewing out chemicals like never before. And the rate is going up not down. You would think that in the year 2013 we where on our way to make Earth a better place to live at. Not so. Our Homeworld is getting more toxic for each day. Yet stuff like this doesn’t make the daily news like it should. If the oceans go…. so does the test of us. No kidding.
There is new Documentary just hitting DVD now and that is the movie Planet Ocean and there is new documentary showing on cinemas in Canada now called Revolution Movie. Both is about our destruction of our oceans. Se the Trailers below. They may contain spoilers… But there is really nothing to spoil.
Think of our Blue Planet as one big Generational Spaceship where we must make sure that is all working well for generations to come.
It’s not to late. We can build a new world with a new “Normal” way to live.
It will take Change [And big change come about in 3 ways]
3. Many fast iterating steps
Our Road has come to an end and we must now take 1 or some of this 3 roads weather we like it or not. What route do you want to take?
Route 3 must begin today.
Route 2 we can take tomorrow after a good nights sleep.
And finally Route 1 is waiting just around the corner with a big knife in it’s hand.
Here you can read all about how we must think to change routes:
