I wrote these questions years ago, while i was seemingly trying to get some sort of grasp of my life. Some i have answered myself, others i still search the answer to. Sure i had a normal Americanized life, yet there seemed to be a fragment of it missing in an unknown world. I searched, and do so to this very day. I question our civilization's apathy, and surely even my own. Please feel free to share your opinion and answers to these questions. It will help my search as well as others'. (Some are not questions, rather just statements, please share your understanding and opinion of them. Please keep the format clean so i as well as others, can clearly understand which question/statment you are discussing.) In the words of Leo Tolstoy, "He comes to a clearing, climbs a tree, and clearly sees an unlimited space before him; at the same time he sees that there are no houses there, and that there can be none; he goes back to the forest, into the darkness, and he sees darkness, and again there are no houses." ---- 1.) At what point of our evolution did we become technology obedient savages? 2.) Are we the creators of the culturally degrading factors in our global society, and thus our own moral decay? In other words, are we the cause of our own physical and metaphysical decay? 3.) What causes us to become totally obedient to the contents of our own lives? At what point will our consciousness influence us to look outside the pleasure of our own life and see the misery of others? 4.) Why don't adolescents in the contemporary era desire knowledge to reinforce their intellectual health? Why don't we feel the need for discovery and travel, and isolate ourselves from any exotic or unfamiliar information? 5.) What has caused us to become inhumane creatures constantly at struggle for pleasure in our lives? Is shelter, love, unity, beauty, and our own inner goodness not enough to feed our hungry body and/or soul? 6.) At what point has the word "mind" been isolated from the English (Americanized) tounge? Where has our conscience gone to? 7.) Is technology ever going to surpass humanity? Has it? Is humanity ever going to surpass technology? 8.) If this culturally-degrading trend continues, will our Einsteins, Newtons, and Mozarts ever going to reappear in another identity? Could these great minds ever surpass the oppression set upon them by our obedient population? 9.) A great comic once portrays a person praying to God, "God, how come you have not sent solutions to cancer, genocide, and other sources of evil?" God willfully answers, "I have --you killed them." 10.) Could the society-labeled insane be the anonymous and unrecognized geniuses of our world? 11.) Why has society given religion, faith, and sacrament the title of hopeless factors which are the roots of conflicts in our society? Isn't religion supposed to be the root of all happiness, and thus the solution to all of these conflicts? 12.) What is cause of isolation, depression, genocide, homophobia, society-influenced prejudice, cultural decay, chronic ignorance, insecurity, obedience to technology, and war?
