Welcome to the most irrational world ever. So irrational that if there is extraterrestrial life somewhere out there, and I am a hundred per cent certain that there must be, if they so happen to visit our world, they are going to get so scared that they will willingly leave at once! They will call an extraordinary meeting and they will take the decision all extraterrestrial schools to make trips over and around the Earth and use us as an example of what not to do.
During extraterrestrial Carnivals, children will don their earth costumes and all ETs will laugh their hearts out since we have managed to become the laughing stock of the universe! ET leaders will devour all our history books to find out what they should do so as not to become like us as we repeat the same mistakes over and over again and still we have not learned that in order to change our lives we must stop doing whatever it was that we have been doing up to now! But you see most of the people find this idea extremely irrational. Me, personally, I don’t see why. It has even become a status in the e-world, but no, we don’t see it. We are too busy not to let go of the rails we have erected in front of us… “It is not that Aristophanes is relevant to all eras; it is us that we were and still are the same old-idiots”. You can replace the name Aristophanes with any writer or poet or whoever has delved with the human race and has realized what is going on. This is also something that we cannot accept: that we are a race. We are not Gods. But let’s leave it aside for the time being because it is too difficult to digest it yet.
How do you expect our lives and the world as a whole to change if we do not stop doing whatever we have been doing since time immemorial? I know! Witchcraft! Nothing to change, no one ever losing anything, no challenge, everybody staying in hiding full of fears, not exceeding the all-too-well-known limits, because for goodness’ sake, why should we set new limits? A huge tsunami will sweep us away and we won’t be able to swim and it’s better not to change things and everything we know and we are familiar with, but nevertheless all the others must change, the relationships, jobs, our children must learn to take decisions about their lives. But the only thing we teach them is fear and insecurity and how to make the same mistakes again and again, without showing them that there are alternative ways of thinking.
If you expect me at this point to start enumerating these alternative ways of thinking, you are wasting your time and you can put on your hats and leave. Not that I do not want to reveal them, but a human being’s ways of thinking are unlimited, that even if each and every one of us could put down 5-6 options and then we collected all of them, again we would not have reached the end.
After so many years of evolution and we still do not embrace our key characteristic: our unlimited possibilities.
The course of the “imagination development” taught at extraterrestrial schools (because of course there they do have such courses; not like us that after so many-many years, we do the same things as mice in treadmills, boldly repeating: “Yes, you are going to need all these things in the future”. At those schools, they teach what human beings could, if, and only if, they could accept and believe in their capabilities and what they can do.
