What about privacy? What about our future?

What privacy? We know that our government agencies have access to our deepest, darkest secrets we boldly share with friends confidentially through phone calls or email. We know that facebook can take our information we stupidly post on their site and link us to just about any revenue-generating cause they like, according to their privacy and use policies. And we know that the google cars that troll around communities taking photos also grab cell phone conversations in the surrounding area. They’ve moved beyond that with google glass so they don’t have to pay anyone to collect our private data (a few restaurants and bars are banning google glass.) So where is this going?

Is our privacy, our mental health and physical health the property of our government and corporations that run it? Currently we are bombarded with unhealthy emf radiation, exposed to cell towers, cell phones, home networks and the smart meters, all while it was announced that cancer has moved into the rank of #1 killer. Do you think our electronics and food may be playing a part? Most of these technologies are not opt-out, but are required.

It is easy to see why civilizations rise and fall. Some may die out as the result of catastrophes of nature. Others kill themselves off with their own inventions. We’re ranked as a type 0 civilization and our future is not certain.

In the words of famous physicst Michio Kaku, “Type I civilization is a truly planetary one, which has mastered most forms of planetary energy. Their energy output may be on the order of thousands to millions of times our current planetary output. By definition, an advanced civilization must grow faster than the frequency of life-threatening catastrophes. Since large meteor and comet impacts take place once every few thousand years, a Type I civilization must master space travel to deflect space debris within that time frame, which should not be much of a problem. Ice ages may take place on a time scale of tens of thousands of years, so a Type I civilization must learn to modify the weather within that time frame.”

He continues: “Artificial and internal catastrophes must also be negotiated. But the problem of global pollution is only a mortal threat for a Type 0 civilization; a Type I civilization has lived for several millennia as a planetary civilization, necessarily achieving ecological planetary balance. Internal problems like wars do pose a serious recurring threat, but they have thousands of years in which to solve racial, national, and sectarian conflicts.”
