Six months on from my last blog regarding my opinion of life on our planet, and very aptly, Jamiroquai’s ‘Virtual Insanity’ is playing in the background.
We’ve just had a Climate Change meeting of the World’s leaders in a conference centre in Glasgow, Scotland. A country that’s part of an Island. Only accessible by England in an eco-friendly way. Setting a bloody good example, as you would expect, saw our PM taking a private jet to get there. If ever you needed confirmation that we are governed by Grade A tossers, then this was it. COP26 was meant to be a meeting of Governments to get their countries across the World all doing their bit. Alas, it has more than likely damaged the environment further via the air pollution flying into Glasgow, and then the return flights adding to it again. Am I the only person who is perplexed why this happened and how it was sanctioned? Call me sceptical, but was it just a massive PR stunt to make it seem like something is being done. Why didn’t they just have a Zoom meeting?
Then we have Greta Thunberg, an 18 year old Swedish girl who started bunking off school in protest to something or other is now a global voice on climate change. Did she sit her exams? Does she have any learned form of basis from which she is forming her points? She has been greatly lorded over and given honorary statuses here and there. But for what? It’s easy to say something that you can’t actually prove or substantiate. To say if we don’t do this, then this will happen. We are going to have this because we are doing this etc etc. It’s presumptions formed from assumptions that are based on the predictions of the unknown. If I, or anyone else had done what she has done, then the parents would have been fined because the child didn’t go to school. You’d have been arrested for being a nuisance outside a government building and god knows what else. She has said her generation is going to revolutionise the planet and conquer climate change. Good luck with that. Half of kids nowadays don’t know if they’re a boy, a girl, a tree or a fucking unicorn.
Here’s a presumption regarding the recycling of plastic and reducing the amount of plastic on the planet. Recycling doesn’t work. The only way to resolve the issue is to stop the production of plastic. Simple. McDonald’s introduced paper straws, yet kept plastic lids? Why don’t they sell soft drinks in cans instead? Simply because the profit from draught Coke or Fanta is massive. It’s about 7p to mix the syrup with soda yet they charge you more than 2000% than that for your drink.
The planet is getting warmer. This is due to our Sun, a massive ball of hydrogen imploding over and over again, forming helium. This is called nuclear fusion. It’s because the sun is constantly getting hotter. This is why we are experiencing warmer weather. Eventually the sun will expand to about 200 times its current radius, swallowing up Mercury and Venus. It is unknown if it has enough gases to expand in to Earth’s orbit and swallow us up. I reckon you and I don’t need to worry about it happening in our lifetime though. It’s nature. Pure and simple. That’s my take on it anyway.
Congratulations Canelo 🙌🥊
On to my favourite boxer and his accomplishment on Nov 6th in becoming the unified Super-Middle Weight Champion of the World! Awesome achievement to capture all 4 belts after having none 12 months previous! Viva México 🇲🇽 Cabrones!
There’s so much more interesting things to be absorbed in to for your life on this planet. You can’t be constantly worrying about tomorrow and tomorrow’s tomorrow. You’re then chasing a future which holds only one certainty for you. Death. Do you want to enjoy yourself? Of course you do. We are only experiencing the present moment. The past has gone. I could once run the 100m in 11.3 secs. Now I can’t run to catch a bus 😂.
You can share your experiences of your past with a friend or a person who is just experiencing your past moments in their present.
What we are told from an early age however, through our education system in schools, is the preparation for the future. Your exams at the end of school, further education, your vocation and your future has now completely preoccupied your mind. You don’t follow your true goals or aspirations as you believe that you have to earn money, which is a social convention, it doesn’t exist in reality, to succeed.
An omnipotent being would be a being whose power was unlimited. The power of human beings is limited in two distinct ways: we are limited with respect to our freedom of will, and we are limited in our ability to execute what we have willed.
Parameters on what we are able to achieve is a paralysis of our evolution.
