    Why are you here?

    ;-) To quote the band Rush, "Why are we here?/Because we're here./Why does it happen?/Because it happens; roll the bones." I've asked myself that ever since I was old enough to ask, "Why?", which was about 3 or 4 years young. "Why" is my favorite question. I am on this website because I was inspired by the underlying message(s) in Ishmael, The Story of B, and My Ishmael, and I saw the website at the end of the latter. I am also checking out (before I noticed the bit in the book) the Gesundheit Institute as a possible future workplace... I am eager to continue trying to understand our human situation and generate possible alternatives to what by most accounts is a failing system. I seek a non-violent yet successful and widespread movement of diverse experimential revolutionary alternative ways of living. I am here because I knew at the age of 14 definitely that I needed to do something to benefit either people and/or the earth, and I think now that the two need not be and are not separate, but are linked directly.

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    Peaceful illumination by the divine force (call it what you will), or for those atheists here, by meditation on your own personal center of peaceful calm may help discern propler action in accordance with the Way things will be. Meaning only that there is no one particular way except however it is turning out and will turn out; is that vague and trippy enough? Moreover, to protect ourselves, a redistribution of wealth and/or a change of the power guard are very likely major ingredients in assuring the basic needs of the world's people, and helping to reduce our demands on our only ship in this universe. Don't be brought down! The eilte of the world are just as fallible as everyone else, and do blunder, even with all they have. Change is very possible and only illusory is the obstacle of making a better reality! Let the bells of change and revolution ring out, with liberty and justice for ALL!
