RE: Knowing The Kardashev Scale and Earth's place will both humble you & inspire you ...

One of the biggest challenges in helping Earthlings obtain Type I status is getting humans to realize 0 isn't a Roman numeral. Earth is a Type Nulla civilization. Someday you'll learn. The Universe hasn't given up on you yet.

Sort:  

If all the chaos we have on Earth right now cleanse the world for better we may actually made it to Type I in our lifetime. We need to get rid of the crazies running the world and become governed by good principles instead of people with power.

Two global wars full of chaos wasn't enough to "cleanse". Obtaining Type I doesn't make the "crazies" disappear. They'll still exist and you'll still be living in a society with them. It takes many pieces to assemble a planetary civilization beyond a change in government.

Yes. But with media frenzy, governments etc. dragging us down it's hard to put any of the pieces together. I understand that getting rid of something bad won't make things magically great. It's a 1st step. There's enough good people in the world. The people who hold power are rarely from those good people.

A crazy homeless guy is not that harmful. A crazy paedophile or fanatic with connections and power can cause massive harm. That's holding back our human progress.

Between yellow journalism and the Teapot Dome Scandal there was Nikola Tesla and a powerful man named George Westinghouse backing him. That seems like it would have been as good of a time as any to have made a "1st step" and put as many of the pieces together that existed at the time. However, the desire for such a change didn't exist then and the underlying desire for change still is lacking after slowly increasing. There is a huge difference between knowing Earth isn't the center of the universe and accepting all the implications of that knowledge. As far as most humans are concerned knowing Earth isn't the center of the universe is good enough.

That really is true. We may have to wait for a long time for things to change. I've seen things moving towards better. Let's just hope things will keep improving 😃
