The Only Constant Is Change, Until We Reach Perfection

It may sound cliche, but I find it to be very true.  Earth has changed since it's physical conception, you have changed since your physical conception, science constantly changes, yet for some reason Mainstream Religions don't change.  As long as planetary consciousness progress everything else shall progress as well.  Of course some things change for the worse, but it's just like physical evolution if something evolves in to something gnarly then it will just die off.

I feel that is our only way to come closer to the truth, and possibly attain the truth.  We should accept that we don't have the truth now, if we did then nothing would be wrong.  Therefore nothing is right right now.

So why would human evolution be the final point of evolution?  Why would anything right now be considered to be the way it should be?  We should accept the fact that we don't have the answers, but we must keep searching.  Where I stand right now, I am going with the ground root that the answer lies in infinity, now I must attain that infinite knowledge to achieve perfection.  Is anybody satisfied with where they are at right now?  I mean it is a great accomplishment to be a human and have such a great understanding of the universe, but there is much more to learn.  Of course the atheists look to find that infinite knowledge in science, but science is just the physical, we need to attain knowledge in the meta-physical as well right?

Surprising Science

While technology develops at exponential speed, transforming how we go about our everyday tasks and extending our lives, it also offers much to worry about. In particular, many top minds think that automation will cost humans their employment, with up to 47% of all jobs gone in the next 25 years. And chances are, this number could be even higher and the massive job loss will come earlier.

Are you an overbuyer or an underbuyer?

One way to limit clutter is by being mindful of your spending.

  • Overbuyers are people who love to buy — they stockpile things as a result. These are individuals who are prone to run out of space in trying to store their stuff and they may even lose track of what — and how much of what — they have.
  • One way overbuyers can limit their waste, both money and space wise, is by storing items at the store, and then buy them when they really need them.
  • Underbuyers tend to go to extraordinary lengths to not buy things. They save money and do fewer errands, however, they often make do with shabby personal items. They may also, when they finally decide to go out to buy a product, go without entirely because the item may no longer be available.
