The Universe has always been trying to kill us #Blogg100

#054 [LIV]
I don’t want to be the laughing stock of a galaxy [I fuckn love science]

I was watching John Stewart talking to Neil deGrasse Tyson and they come up with some wonderful quotes like this:

John: Why are there asteroids trying to kill us?
Neil: The Universe has always been trying to kill us

and this:

I don’t want to be the laughing stock of our galaxy
When aliens learn that we all went extinct from an asteroid
When we had a space program that could have done something about it
That would just be embarrassing — Neil deGrasse Tyson

Take a look at the whole episode or just the 3 extended Neil deGrasse Tyson parts: Part 1, Part 2 , Part 3

We only react when a bad things happen

If you as human race now has a chance to divert only a fraction of the resources you burn each day here on planet Earth to come up with solutions and contingency plans for some likely devastating scenarios. You just need a kick in the but first to do so. You need some bad catastrophes that don’t kill to many of you first. Should we Engineer them for you or just wait for them to happen? Or we could just create some form of crusade that we all could join in on. Like an epic quest in World of Warcraft. What do you think? Should we help you?

Wall street is back like never before

Who new that among Wall street many charms and talents was the healing ability of Wolverine
We already know we had the damaging power of Wolverine — John Stewart

Make life a journey

Anyway. We Isfarian won’t laugh at you. Like I said before: We are here help you turn this Planetary size spaceship into a new haven paradise. And yes, you have a very long way to go still. And it is journey, not a goal.

So put on our best trekking boots and let’s make life a journey worth telling your grandchildren about.

Do you have a Contingency plan? #Blogg100

Why Hearts and Minds?

“Hearts and minds… Far more effective than bombs and guns…” — Continuum

I have been watching 6 episodes of Continuum so far. In the future Mega-Corporations has taken over the role of nations and rule all without insight. A small group of rebels travel back in time make sure that future does not become like this. I like Science Fiction that makes me think. And now they started to whip up a message in this one too.

We need to hold everyone who plunder the world for their own personal or corporate gain accountable.

It’s time for a new society. How can we get this message across to those who don’t want to listen? By hiding it in stories like this 🙂

“If you want to burrow a message into a human mind. Work it into a story” — Jonathan Gottschall

I blog more about this in my 2 other blogs:

#21 Engage in Storytelling and This is your story

Shaping the Future

Continuum is also about shaping your own future. There is a META discussion about this in the show. How the time travel perspective can make you think about shaping your own future. It is all very interesting and philosophical. It presses all my buttons as a Futurist (I am two parts Future-Philosopher, one part Strategist, one part Network Ninja and one part Change-Agent).

Do we have any Contingency plans for our future? Do you?
