The secret life of ants…
OK so a bit of a misleading headline, but deliberately so. So much time, money and resource is spent on trying to find out if there is intelligent life in the universe while the whole time highly intelligent lifeforms are continuing on with life right under our noses. If we could truly communicate with dolphins and whales, can you imagine what they might be able to tell us? And in the clips below, just take the time out to look at what ants can achieve and ask yourself if a documentary on a civilisation on a newly discovered planet could be any more interesting..
Out planet is full of intelligent life, most of whom live in balance with their surroundings. Only one life form appears to be a bit dumb. Created with an amazing aptitude for learning, conscious thought, self healing and repair it has dismissed all of this as woo-woo bunkum and chosen to worship at an altar that has taught it to pollute its own environment, create power sources it doesn’t understand and can’t control (nuclear power anyone!) and furthermore doesn’t seem to get the fact that helping and protecting others, as well as the environment, helps its own self to survive in the long run. Even bacteria and viruses are infinitely more intelligent than this one. And who could it be? Yes! That’s us folks..probably the silliest, most ungrateful life form the universe has ever spawned. But that capacity to blossom still lies within us. can we do it before it’s too late?
On March 22, 1980, an unusual monument was erected in Elbert County, Georgia, USA by a group of Americans who wished to remain anonymous.
The monument is huge and is engraved with ten guidelines in eight different languages – namely, English, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Swahili and Spanish. The ten guidelines are as follows:
- Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
- Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
- Unite humanity with a living new language.
- Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
- Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
- Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
- Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
- Balance personal rights with social duties.
- Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite.
- Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature.
The wikipedia information on the Guidestones gives a good overview on the history and background of this monument. While a recent article on vigilantcitizen.com provides a wealth of new information on the thinking of those who erected this monument, based on the guide notes they left as part of the guidebook to the site, The Georgia Guidestone Guidebook.
We flagged this one as it’s always interesting to come across a modern day mystery. And their ten “commandments” certainly spark debate as the principles have a logical rationale, but who should implement such rules and how? That is the question…
