TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS

THESE ARE DIFFICULT QUESTIONS. WE LIVE IN THE ERA OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL BOOM. WE LIVE IN TIMES OF AMAZING DEVELOPMENTS.
  • WE HAVE REACHED FOR THE STARS, WE WENT FOR THE OUTER SPACE AND WE BEGAN ITS CONQUEST.
  • WE HAVE INCREASED THE DIMENSIONS OF THE INFINITE COSMOS, CREATING THE EXTRA DIMENSIONS OF CYBER SPACE
  • WE ARE TRYING TO CREATE LIFE VIA CLONING, BIOGENETICS, MICROELECTRONICS, AND THE ADVANCED SCIENCES
  • WE HAVE MANAGED TO UNIFY AND HOMOGENIZE THE HUMAN CULTURE AND BEHAVIOR AND IN OUR TIMES WE HAVE THE ABILITY AND WE ARE TRYING to connect the human brain to machines AND to computers
  • ETC
ALL THESE ARE A REALITY AND AN EXISTING TRUTH. MAN HAS MANIPULATED SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE. THIS ABILITY OPENED FOR HIM A DOOR. MAN GOT THROUGH IT INTO A NEW WORLD, AND STARTED TO RUN IN THE GLORIOUS DIRECTION OF WONDROUS ACHIEVEMENTS, Return

THE CASUALTIES

When man started this profligate and stupid gallop he was devoted to the future that he could see forthcoming, disdaining the life of yesterday and so unfortunately BY MISTAKE
  • closed the door behind him, and
  • HE BECAME DEPRIVE AND ISOLATED in this new world.
THEREFORE HE MISSED AND HE FORGOT THE CLASSICAL PRINCIPLES OF HIS LIFE, which defined the behavior and ideals, UP TO THE TIME OF ENCOUNTERING THE CHALLENGES OF THE NEW ORDER OF THIS NEW WORLD. So today
  • WE HAVE LOST THE MENTAL LINK THAT CONNECTS THE HUMAN BEING WITH ANOTHER AND AS A CONSEQUENCE WE HAVE GENERATED CLAUSTROPHOBIA AND LONELINESS.
  • WE HAVE MISSED THE JOY OF LIFE AND WE HAVE REPLACED IT WITH THE TASK OF GATHERING USELESS AND UNNECESSARY MATERIAL ACQUISITIONS
  • WE HAVE CAUSED THE STANDARD OF LIVING WHICH CREATES HARMONY AND BEAUTY TO DISAPPEAR, AND WE HAVE REPLACED IT WITH SELFISHNESS AND MATERIALISM
  • WE HAVE MISSED THE INITIATIVE WAY OF THINKING AND REACTING AND WE HAVE REPLACED IT WITH STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES THAT ARE RUN, cotrolled and ruled BY MACHINES.
  • WE HAVE MISSED THE INNER LIGHT, AND WE HAVE REPLACED IT WITH NEW CRITERIA OF EVALUATION OF OUR TRADITIONAL VALUES, WHICH IS MONEY.
THE RESULT FROM THIS SITUATION IS THE UNLIMITED INCREASE OF UTILITARIANISM AND SELF-CENTEREDNESS Return

OPERATING MODE OF SOCIETY

THE GENERAL FEELING OF OUR SOCIETY IS THAT THE BEATEN TRACK IS A TRACK WITHOUT LIGHT, IS A TRACK OF DARKNESS. IN THE DARK CELL OF OUR MOST INDIVIDUALIZED PRIVACY WE ARE INCAPABLE OF SEEING ANY LIGHT AT ALL, AND ONLY CONFLICT ARISES LET ALONE MAKING ANY BENEFIT IN CONTENT WHAT SO EVER. We are blind. Blind people can not take the initiative and make the TRANSCENDENCE, because they can not see. BLIND PEOPLE are obliged to operate within the limits which are set for them and execute the directives that are given to them. ALL OF THE ABOVE LEAD OUR SOCIETY TO AN UNBALANCED SITUATION OF THE WAY OF LIVELIHOOD, MORE SO FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION.
  • OUR CHILDREN HAVE A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE OF REALITY THAN US
  • OUR CHILDREN ARE CLOSELY BOUND TO TECHNOLOGY, CELL PHONE, AND THE INTERNET
  • OUR CHILDREN HAVE BECOME ADAPTED TO THEM
  • Our children are taught all the principles related to the management
    • of money
    • of standard processes AND
    • of technology,
    while exists lack of any other culture. Is this knowledge called education;;
  • OUR CHILDREN ARE DEPENDED ON THEM. THEY ARE INCAPABLE TO SEE LIFE FREELY. They are trained to live in the society of certified standardization.
The described situation is not just about our country, neither touches just a particular nation or state. This is a FACT THAT AFFECTS THE ENTIRE PLANET. Return

THEREFORE A NEW VISION has TO be ESTABLISHed AND TO be CREATEd A MOVEMENT, A DRIFT, A ROUTE TO A MORE ESSENTIAL WAY OF LIVING
