I was having this conversation the other day about how the world has advanced in a very fast pace in comparison to its life span... Think about it...in just 100 years what we have discovered, accomplished, and built... how quickly the people have covered whole cities, states, countries...there is hardly much open land anymore...not much nature around us... I think about how many catastrophes there have been...earth quakes tsunami's ect... The talk of japan disappearing. have we out grown our planet? Is the earth rejecting the pests that dwell on it...trying to trim the flock so to speak... I cant help but wonder? Also with the talk of slowing down on another thread...are we destroying life as we know it...Life in general...When do we decide enough is enough...when we have to build our cities above the cities because there's no pollution higher up? What are we doing? Is there no going back? Are we doomed? I worry because I live on a LARGE fault line, and in the bed of a prehistoric lake that covered half the united states...What if the big one hits and suddenly we are under water again... Where are we going?
