The reason we’ve got so many nuclear weapons is not because of a war between nations.

It’s because we fear attack from space.

Of course, I guess one could make a interesting argument that it’s basically impossible to even tell how big we are. In the greater universe, we might be inside of a atom that’s part of a semiconductor on someone’s desktop computer.

It’s impossible to tell how long time is, too. What seems like a lifetime to us might only be a few microseconds to said computer.

It’s, really, impossible to tell much of anything. We’re sitting here on spaceship earth, not sure how big we are, what our position in the cosmos is, or even how long our current civilization is going to last. No one seems to want to adapt to use what energy we have left effectively.. we’re just starting to see hybrid EVs.

I feel almost as if the human race is a whole bunch of people sitting in a room with guns aimed at each other’s heads. Go, lemmings, go.

It’s scary. I don’t like thinking about it. I know things that I can do, and I should be doing them.. working more on electric vehicles, the one technological solution that I can see and understand.

Let us please learn from history – especially the history that isn’t written, like the civilizations that reached our level of sophistication and then fell..

I don’t know why I’ve been so afraid lately. Perhaps I’m developing a touch of paranoia late in life. Maybe I burned out the part of my brain that kept repeating ‘everything is fine. There is nothing to fear.’

    And the ability to hear same. I recall what did it, too.

    It may be true, but if so, it’s completely illogical. Humans learning to kill other humans in case we’re threatened from outside… This assumes that they are going to be vulnerable to the same kind of stuff we’re vulnerable to. It assumes they’re going to be motivated by the same things that motivate us. UGH.

    I think it’s a far more likely scenario that an unfriendly alien species will manipulate some humans into bullying the rest of the humans into doing their dirty work for them. That way they could rationize their involvement away, just as, say, Nike says it’s not responsible for the shitty living conditions of its workers, that’s the subcontractor’s responsibility.

    So why worry about it? Sheesh. Stick with concrete things.
