Rise and fall of civilisations

Civilizations rise and fall. I believe that we are living in the last years of this civilization. I have no idea of how many more years we will have before the end of it all, a hundred years, fifty years, three years, but for sure, this civilization will disappear. What goes up must come down. It is a natural process. Babylon, the Indus valley civilization, The Roman Empire, the Maya kingdom, they all disappeared.

Ninety eight percent of all species that have ever lived here on earth have disappeared. The dinosaurs, the mammoths, the sable tooth tigers… They’re all gone.

All of us will die.
This is not negative thinking. This is a fact.

I have changed my mind. If you feel that you need a religion or some kind of comforting belief to carry you thru, OK, go for it. If you believe in Jesus, Mohamed or reincarnation and it makes you happy, why should I interfere? It is your business. I don’t care any longer if you guys believe in science, astrology, a free unregulated market, racism, success, competition, whatever. I can’t change your beliefs. I can’t even change my own.

Do as you like. If the fairy tales don’t turn you on, don’t bother about them. If you no longer believe in Santa Claus, drop him. No one knows for sure what the best way to look at things is. Try to stay as happy as possible. If you like to drink a lot of alcohol, drink as much as you can. If you like to smoke pot, smoke as much as you like. When you have had enough, give it up. Hang on to your crazy love affairs as long as you can. Escape if you feel like it. Come back when you have had enough of self-deception and nonsense.
