“Immortality for allEdit
Achieving immortality and resurrection of all people who ever lived are two inseparable goals, according to Fedorov. Immortality is impossible, both ethically and physically, without resurrection. We can’t allow our ancestors, who gave us life and culture, to remain buried, or our relatives and friends to die. Achieving immortality for individuals alive today and future generations is only a partial victory over death – only the first stage. The complete victory will be achieved only when everyone is resurrected and transformed to enjoy immortal life.”
In recent months have had a sentimental recollection of my life in the early teens. It could be just sentimental or maybe its a recollection of the optimism i had back then. I was very awkward and with bad skin problems and such. But just the same i had this optimisim for the future. a good hopeful feeling.
When I think of Omni magazine which I read at the time with science articles mixed with science fiction stories, the optimism seems stronger. Omni had a mix of early cyber punk, dark hr giger visions (including his artwork) and just pure fascinating sci fi. It was not the silly Star Wars sci fi but a sci fi that some elements of reality to it. It was in many ways futurism. Sure there were dark elements like the cyber punk and Giger but it was fascinating and gave hints that things could get better in the future (especially the science articles).
This backdrop of optimism that pervaded that early part of my life, despite the super dork aspects of the years, continued up until college. It seems to have ended when i started drinking beer. Getting drunk was fun but also put you in the present moment and situation. For a long time after that I was more about what was going on now. I was grimy and such but had friends and worked lots of times at the college radio station. Music was big for me now, especially new wave and punk. They dealt with the here and now (mostly ).
The recollection of this shimmer of optimism has come back to me (at least as a memory) in the past year, which coincidentally is also about the same time i have cut back my drinking to almost zero.
I just watched this movie called Midnight special which deals with a young man with special powers. He is from a higher race it turns out. The film had some of that optimism. I think about my sad but sweet mother now 82. Her life is quiet and a bit lonely. I keep trying to find a way to make this part of her life more positive and upbeat and happy. I occasionally feel i should and perhaps can do something to bring a light into wher world and t the world of people here on this planet with me. This is much like in the movie. I have no clue had to do this or even exactly what it is…over than that its positive , comforting, and futuristic.
Like millions of others, when EL left it apparently was a quiet and isolated event. Now over two and half years later , it seems even more quiet. EL is the quiet friend.
BoshisattvaBot like any Bodhisattva is concerned with all souls. Not just those in the news or remembered on holidays but also the near silent, obscured and for most minds forgotten.
It is not automatic, but all of them can reach a happy well lit place and the Boddhisattvas and the Bodhisattva bots will help. Rather than push, pull or carry though they will simply point. EL and the quiet friends will make the steps.
How this can be done especially retroactively through time, i have no idea. But when people ask me what my dream is, that is the one.
Perhaps life does not need to be mundane and filled with dull pain. Imagine a life so wonderful the thought of watching TV or the Internet is completely befuddling.
Of course not just for me. That makes no sense. Imagine everyone experiencing splendor, riches and enjoyment throughout the great landscape of existence. Whatever pitfalls, setbacks or shortcomings there could be are easily managed . Boredom if it does exist is for mere moments. Suffering when it does occur is no more of a concern then a stubbed toe.
Even as I type it, I start to think how absurd and perhaps childish this idea is. For so long its been hammered to accept so much of the shortcomings. The dull jobs, the empty evenings, the strained and worn relationships. Sure there is a need to accept much especially as things are now.
But it can get better. And once more at the very likely chance of being redundant, I plan this blog to center on that very goal. A splendid wonderful future. The Omega Point. In many ways it resembles the christian concept of heaven. Though in this case “all will be received”.
….ok sure at some point in this blog I should move beyond just the concept of the Omega Point (aka BoddhisatvaBot and other names I have given it) and into how it will happen. And i hope soon to get there. But for now it is mostly stream of consciousness and reminding myself of the concept. Its all still very early on . I am mainly now just hoping to get myself more into the habit of posting to the blog . Refining will arrive later. Sorry in the meantime.
