Perfect Futures

Now that I have refreshed my sites, it comes a time when I have to look again at why I am doing all of this. The inspiration for this blog is a vision I have had, a vision of a future much better and well-adjusted than the world we live in now. I call this he vision of the Perfect Future, for the future is not destined, or inevitable as it might seem. No, on the contrary, it is something we actively choose, whether it be collectively or as individuals. In fact, I personally hold that there are many possible, potential, even likely futures, all waiting to be chosen by us in this free-will universe we inhabit. Knowing this, I seek to actively promote, pursue and otherwise help ‘produce’ as perfect a one as I can envision.

In a universe of parallel realities, multiple dimensions and seemingly endless choice, there must be many possible presents, pasts and futures, all existing simultaneously. This isn’t just a metaphysical observation, it is an opportunity to choose. Also, though we only really exist in the present, mentally we are always in the realm of the images we have of our past, of memories projected onto the world around us, at least not until we are enlightened enough to inhabit that now, that eternal now. What exists for us, in the world of thought is the past, an endlessly murmuring past and it is out of this that we construct our chosen future. Yet, some of us, who have broken free of certain constraints on our consciousness, have managed not only to tune into the past, but the future as well, and thus find a way to enrich the present with the great and glorious light of our possible future.

Yet even this is not the same as making this future, as choosing it. It is something, indeed, we cannot do alone. The perfect future comes from within us all. Our whole society, especially since the modern times of the enlightenment, is geared towards the conscious pursuit of it. We may be living in the present, but if we are conscious at all, it is in the hope of a better future.

What are the elements of this perfect future? One essential one is tolerance; no, more, a loving acceptance of one another, despite superficial differences, which are celebrated rather than scorned, as the source of humanity’s riches. Another is the discovery and embracing of clean sources of energy. I don’t personally know for sure what in their entirety these are, but surely renewables such as tides, wind and sun will play a large part, alongside possibly extremely safe, microscopic technologies (fission?). We need to dream and dream together. What we see around us, or a mere projection of that isn’t enough. We need indeed to see deep within us and find what we really want for this world of ours; with this, will come the way to it. Where there is a dream, there is the realisation of that dream. This is the way reality works, if we but see it clearly.
