Is it worth the trouble?
Ralph Ammer

Excellent. Well thought out and well expressed. Lately I’ve been thinking humanity’s problem, individually and collectively, from our origins accelerating to the warp-speed pace of life now, is taking ourselves and our consciousness too seriously.

Thinking too much, running around madly all the time, making shit the vast majority of which is unnecessary and deadly, creating legacies and monuments which stress the past and death at the expense of life and the present. The earth is a paradise, albeit it with a dangerous side that we must accept (which brings fun along with its twin, risk), and once we meet what are really modest actual material needs, we all need to just chill the fuck out and enjoy it. The miraculous beauty might just be the point.
