What will life — not living, life — be like for the next generation?
And the next?
And the next?
And the next?
And the ten generations following that one?
For all our collective wisdom, we can scarcely fathom actual human beings fourteen “generations” into the future.
This is a profoundly different reality from all who came before us.
Will they be digitized? Filled with electronics? Brains connected to exterior sensors? Living inside a bionic shell?
The very first chapter from the book of Matthew lists the fourteen generations from Abraham to David, then the fourteen generations from David to Babylon (captivity), then the fourteen from Babylon to Christ.
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
This is important.
With Christ, all is changed.
So it will be with us — humans, mortals — as we achieve the same miracles ascribed to Jesus.
That is our mission.
The very first such miracle, birth without procreation, we accomplished a generation ago. Communicating through dreams, I suspect thats possible now.
And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, (the wise men) departed into their own country another way.
How long till all the remaining?
One generation? Three? We must try to live as long as possible — till that day arrives.
But I am suspicious of ‘human freezing’ efforts. If we are to live to 1,000 — or forever — it will be, I imagine, not of the body.
The chance to live forever is science fiction in most conversations, but a lab in Scottsdale believes it can freeze your body after death and maybe bring you back years in the future.
ALCOR Life Extension practices the science of cryonics. Big metal containers at ALCOR hold bodies of people who are legally dead, but considered lives on hold by ALCOR cryopreservation.
“What we’re offering is a chance, and only a chance, to come back and have an indefinite life span. [It] could be hundreds of years, could be thousands of years,” said Max More, president and CEO of ALCOR.
Jesus became not of flesh.
As part of the land, the earth, the physical, we are profoundly limited — as per God’s plan.
In Genesis, note how humans are punished for their transgressions:
Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in toil shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.
And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain [the murderer] was a tiller of the ground.
And Noah began to be a husbandman, and planted a vineyard [this is when things went south].
Use olive oil, not seed oils like corn or sunflower, nor canola:
We’ve seen that vegetable oils cause obesity, heart disease, promote male infertility and aging, and are just generally bad news. In this article we’ll look at the evidence that vegetable oils cause insulin resistance.
If we manage to get to Mars, or perhaps even a planet on some distant other solar system, how many might we kill without trying?
While estimates vary, a recent consensus places the figure of Native Americans living at the time near Columbus’s arrival at around 54 million. According to previous studies, nearly 95% of them are believed to have been killed by European diseases, like smallpox.
Watching everyone you love, even all you hate, sicken and die. Cruel.
