Could Your Ideas Save the World?

My ideas can. But taking the ideas from my head and putting them into effect in the world requires help from the people that can build the ideas. It also takes acceptance of the ideas and the people building them. Currently the world is controlled by unknowns from the shadows and by the changing dynamics of human population. The old systems no longer work. The old belief that nature will provide for you if you live in a region no longer satisfies. The thought that the world will get better is misdirected because no one is working on making it better. Waiting for a savior or messiah is just foolish, since you have a chance to save your world today and make it a better place for the future. I really need to figure out the best way to make the world I envision the world that is. Because I can turn this world into a paradise, if people only help me get it there. Could your ideas do the same thing, or are you just caught trying to live?

If you tried to train cute animals to be beneficial, that usually doesn't work out!

@Drosophila Yes, I'm still working on a efficient way of getting my thoughts out there. The biggest challenge has been satisfying my personal state of being. Do I favor the light or the dark, or do I just make a way to bring both out at the same time? I'm a duality, a balance, and it's difficult to move one aspect forward and leave the other half behind. I don't want to choose between the two, because both are necessary forces. Having the capacity for both is what most people lack. I can do it. Yesterday it made me want to revive my website idea, because I can always cover both there.

I totally agree with what you said, but do think some do want to live with nature and maybe even off the land with more modern approaches. I also think the reason most people's ideas never get implemented is because the forces at be like money to much. Therefore, they tell people with ideas like yours and mine are fantasy land. Sad to say and until we can find away to change this mindset we are stuck chasing money everyday, instead of making the world to our personal liking's and possible benefits for wild life also.

@OneOfMany Have you into a Go Fund me account. I personally hate things like that, but was thinking about doing that myself. Not because I am necessarily thinking I could get any money, but just for the feedback of what people would say about a certain idea.

@crossbones27 I've thought about it, but I would prefer to do that once I had an idea out in the open already. Unless of course, it was to build an example of my ideas to show others how to do it. After all, leading by example is the better way to prove that what you are talking about is reality and not a fantasy. I'm sure if a guy can use it to buy a plane ticket to follow his girlfriend across the country, people might be willing to donate to a good cause.

@OneOfMany That is a good point. That might make people take your idea seriously. It is also quite amazing the things people blow money on, but are about as cheap as it gets on spending their money on making things function and work better. I guess that is just the fun part of life.

well even those waiting on some kind of savior or messiah aught to get off their duff, pretty sure that taking care of what you already have is a thing in most religions

@OneOfMany it's like those who sit at home and preach love and kindness, but never lift a finger

@Jessicalynnt Or turn around and kick the dog and yell at their kids without educating either on how to do things. And often if they are out and about, they don't look kind, because they view the world as an evil place. All you need to do is share a smile to others if you want the world to improve in little ways.

@OneOfMany we have started talking about volunteering a few times a month, but need to do more research on where, and when, and if we will stick with it. not going to start and then bail on a place.

Peace is my idea of a great world - but that in itself is our demise.

Peaceful people are easier victims to just one person that wants to destroy that peace. Sadly a flawed utopia is the closest thing we'd get to peace.

@Inlemay I think people would still prefer that over what we currently have.

I have tons of ideas in my mind that could make this world better, but I am also totally aware that none of them could be put into effect in reality. XD Turning these ideas into reality needs great boldness, capabilities and resourcefulness, but what a pity, I am not that kind of person... XD

You could be, if you found the right people to partner with. I have to do the same to get my ideas out there, and try to avoid crosshairs from people that don't want me saving them!

@OneOfMany Sadly I don't have that confidence... Don't you think the power of one or several individuals can be very weak compared to the trend of the world?

@kelkia I think it only takes the power of one person to largely upset and shatter the trends of the world. If you get caught in its stride it will bury you, but if you show people a different way, you set the trend yourself.

We have strength in numbers. We could make the world better today just by getting the numbers to move towards a powerful destination.
