Everywhere you look, it is a world of opposites: nation vs. nation, state vs. state, city vs. city, team vs. team, network vs. network, channel vs. channel, management vs. employees, store vs. store, and so on. The questions are: Is this it? Is this the end all/be all of human existence? Is this the zenith of human development? Is the present state the highest state that humans can achieve, in terms of happiness, contentness, secureness, and overall good health for all individuals alive? Sure, the technological achievements are great. But looking around the globe, it looks like not many, if any, people are truly happy/content/safe. It appears that fear is everywhere. My idea of a great society does not include 'terror threat levels', nor does it include individuals that incite actions that necessitate the need for 'terror threat levels'. It appears to me that the current society is one that is dedicated to action and fiction. People love to watch action. Sports, movies, TV, etc... In the past, all other societies imaginable were also dedicated to the theatre of action and fiction. The Romans' Amphitheatre. Shakespearian actors. Those societies are extinct. Is there a 'real' world behind the current world being experienced? And if there is a 'real' world behind this temporary facade that I believe people are in, what is needed to get us into it?
