Memento Mori

Just a thoughts that came to me after reading 3re separate articles, ill try to find the links to them.

The first one was about why we cant detect any other life in the galaxy. It went on to argue about how self destruction intelligent life can be given ourselves as an example.But also about have fragile we are, a big enuf solar storm or a meteor can easily wipe out all life as we know it here and on other worlds.

The other two cross over in how fortunat our circumstances are at the moment for our civilization to have progressed to its current levels. The combination of a temporaly stable climate and and relativly easy acces to foissil fules. Circumstances that may never come to cross again if we waste to do the most of our curent sitiation.

Generally im an optimist, i have some hope that no matter how we screw it up there is always hope. But more and more it seems that the odds are stacked against us. Either we do it right now or we forever lose the chance to become more then what we are now.

I'm like a complete opposite of you lol.
Imo humans will inevitably die. Either from some kind of catastrophe or after we've completely drained Earth and somehow moved on to Mars and so on...
The water level is rising, the moon is orbiting further and further away; things don't really look too good for us lol.
Well as long as Earth doesn't explode in my lifetime I don't really care >>

Thank you!

Gratefully present, able to elect direction towards legacy.

Thought may come & go, but will is momentous.
So hope we all consciously choose good ones, cause we reap what we sow.
& may privilege be clear, not blind.

So whatcha gonna do??

May all beings be happy & free smile

For one fond of conceit, there's no taming; for one uncentered, no sagacity.
