    As with many things to come, the older generation thinks it’s just a passing fad.

    I want to be a ‘rock hound’ when i grow up.
    Right now, I’m just a ‘pebble puppy’.

    It’s human nature, really. Governments and religions tend to be headed by the older, more conservative members of the previous generations – and they resist changes in society that might affect present laws and doctrine. They might as well resist the lunar tides and earthquakes. Time is change, and human generations that have any bit of freedom crave change if it affects comfort and family prosperity.
    Present technologies, especially those relative to social interactions, are spreading rapidly and can’t be stopped. Much of the newest technology enables businesses to profit beyond their competition and is implemented very quickly in beta form, to be refined later. Its cumulative affects on society might turn out to be bad, but they are marketed, anyway.
    I am re-reading FUTURE SHOCK, by Alvin Toffler. Near the beginning of the book he discusses the increasing speed with which technology sweeps through human culture. It took millennia for the basic technologies to take hold. Others such as gunpowder took centuries. The printing press took decades. The time from invention to implementation now takes merely years.
    I distrust governments to allow free access to technology, too, but I think their holds on various aspects of it are slipping. Is that good or bad? In Toffler’s opinion, the human race still have brains developed for conditions 50,000 years ago and is possibly incapable of using modern technology wisely.
    It would be interesting to see what would happen if state politicians and religious leaders were taken from power when they reached the age of 50. Previously, nature did not allow people to live so long and stay in power with their old ideas. Are people over 50, with failing physical powers and mental capability (I am one) a bad thing for human survival?
    Or, taken from the high, youthful intensity of the animal side of human nature (sex and aggression), are they the newest stage of humanity, and a calming influence?
    There’s always a “big picture” that only a few people can see early on, and I wish I were one of them. I’d like to see an advance-copy history of the world during the next few hundred years.

    Turns out there was a misprint in the job description, it should’ve said “Sedimentary” instead of “Sedentary”.

    To quote Jefferson Airplane:

    “Soon you’ll attain the stability you strive for
    in the only way that it’s granted
    in a place among the fossils of our time.

    In loyalty to their kind
    they cannot tolerate our minds.
    In loyalty to our kind
    we cannot tolerate their obstruction.

    Life is Change
    How it differs from the rocks
    I’ve seen their ways too often for my liking
    New worlds to gain
    My life is to survive
    and be alive
    for you. "
