Event Horizon

This pix of the setting sun indirectly relates to climate change and what it means for humanity as the cumulative effects of global warming are largely ignored by the press and politicians because the scenario envisioned is disheartening to say the least. From environmental degradation to the collapse of biodiversity, this uncharted territory of change portends a unimagined dark future thought not possible until now. The recent COP26 conference does not begin to address the hellscape that's coming as the monies and technological efforts to ameliorate this slow motion catastrophe is simply not being addressed at the levels needed to make a difference due to the fact GW's a wicked problem of incredible complexity and ... man does not change until a monumental catastrophe of Biblical porportions occurs.

To whit ...

The Omega Point ... 

Man's continued existence?

We're a crowd, a swarm. We think in groups, travel in armies. Armies carry the gene for self-destruction. One bomb is never enough, the blur of technology. This is where the oracles plot their wars. Because now comes the introversion. Father Teilhard knew this, the omega point, a leap out of our biology. Ask yourself this question: Do we have to be humans forever? Don DeLillo, Point Omega 1?

“The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.” - Einstein
