envision Utopia

First Utopian reflection:

by on Mar.23, 2010, under Psycho Babble

After today’s day at work I have to say this. I know that my Utopia would not define the efforts of my labors in terms of a currency system based on my depicted worth to our social, cultural, societal aspirations. And no, I do not have something better in mind at the moment, give me a minute. Something inside screams that there has to be a better way.

I do not figure we will last, odds are against us, hope I am wrong. 96% of all species of life we humans have been able to realize is now extinct. So the odds aren’t good is all I’m saying. Oh-oh – I am hearing the “not another doomsday preacher” ethers floating my way across the space/time continuum right now. I am not really, I actually hypothesize on all angles. However, as I mentioned in my first posting, I gravitate my postulations around the unknown. Perhaps because you can’t prove me wrong, HA. I might be on to something there.

I am guessing that the blogger’s pathways are filled with people just like me. Trying to communicate our relations to life as we experience and understand it. Trying to share something a kindred soul might come across and smile at. That seems what I as a person with no focused expertise can use this medium for, mental masturbation I like to call it. I am the one to get the satisfaction from it.

Here is an easy one. A no brainer. The environment. I preach and shout my stance with spittle and outrage, as I use a computer and consume an ex-ordinate amount of resources to enjoy my lifestyle. I know I am a huge hypocrite in this area. Nature is truly my deepest spiritual source of reverence. If I had to identify with any religion it would be one of Gaia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia_hypothesis concepts of some sort. While many of the American Indians were as bloody and savage to each other as we seem to be, I like their religious thing much better than most our “Anglos” practice. … mmm, not too many heathen ethers, coo.

Well I will take a quick stab at something concrete. What about 6 hour days, two shifts! We could have like a symbiotic relationship worker thing. Slight over lap when needed to maintain projects and work. Maybe meetings on Fridays to add to the cohesive nature of our work partner. I am sure I could work out the economics. It would certainly employee everyone. It would drastically increase our productivity. People would be happier and perhaps healthier with more time to pursue other things in life.

Well, its a thought.

    We are all hypocrites that way…well, most of us anyway. I agree there ought to be a better way to be judged a worthwhile person in this world, but money sure talks. As for all those extinct species, we, the selfish, blind creatures we are, are responsible for many of them. We won’t last, we are destroying it all ourselves. That will be easier to accept if you have no descendants living at the time. ;)

    I’m 100% with you on the work idea. That makes perfect sense to me.
