How often do you take a break from your everyday activities, stop for a second and ponder about your life, your loved ones and this wonderful planet we live on? Everyday we miss to do that is a day stolen away from us.
Our race in general seems to have forgotten where we came from. We abandoned out natural habitat for pleasures of modern living. Last 50 years has seen tremendous "advancement" in our living style. From computers to nano-technology. I am asking one simple question. What did our planet get out of it? What did nature and animal world get out of it? And, should I really be skeptic, what did we in fact gain from it really? Was it worth it?
Did you know, medicine says the human body is actually made to last around 190 years. But due to large amount of poisons around us, stress and unhealthy living style we live only a third or a half of what we were blessed with.
There are still cases of people living well over 100 years. Oldest ever recorded human life was 130 years. Oldest person alive today is 115 years old. These are typically people living out of the reach of "civilization". And they usually look in their 90-ties like many around us look like in their 50-ties.
I am reading in newspapers how we will be able to expand our lifespans thanks to progress in genetic medicine and cloning of organs. In fifty years time they say, we will be able to replace our organs with ones grown in pigs. Yes pigs. I read that and my mind stops for a second. I start thinking about what I said in first sentence.
Then I read how the last two specimens of a rare gigantic turtle are being held in a zoo in China. Two beautiful creatures of nature, two old turtles. Last of their kind, thanks to us. Why do we do this?
Where are we really going, is what I am really asking?
- 90% of today’s medicine practice is nothing but a service to pharmaceutical companies
- I wish for another Moon race
- What can we learn from those 100 yrs old
