I watched The End of Suburbia earlier and was suprised to find that it wasn't all doom and gloom. It was mostly though. For those of us who are fans of alternative energy it's quite sobering.

Wind power? Bio-Diesel? You're having a laugh!

Right at the end the participants suggested that if we lived more "locally" in connected communities, took the road system apart, developed rail on a massive scale and became much more involved in food production we might just have a chance. Maybe. If we were lucky. But probably not.

At least we have a good plan that is not going to be followed. That's a step in the right direction.

It is only one thing in life we canbe sure about.. And that is the fact that we all shall die one day :)

But it is a shame how we during a very short time has manage to destroy our planet this bad.. But I guess human is born to erase our self.

Hope you have a great day!

ScandinavienNova said it well, but it remains to be seen what dying means.

I told a friend that we are eternal earlier

All questions at the public meeting that day were about life beyond the grave.

The Master only laughed and did not give a single answer.

To his disciples, who demanded to know the reason for his evasiveness, he later said, "Have you observed that it is precisely those who do not know what to do with this life who want another that will last forever?"

"But is there life after death or is there not?" persisted a disciple.

"Is there life before death? - that is the question!" said the Master enigmatically.

I agree that we are eternal. Ever since i was little, i felt kind of like my life here was just a bus stop, not the final destination. We have a whole bunch of bus stops! hehe(hey, i was 9 when i started thinking like this so that excuses my simple metaphor!)

How many bus stops on your island?
