A catalyst is a substance that speeds up a chemical reaction, without itself being used in the reaction. Sometimes catalysts can be negative also, reducing the speed of the reaction. usually catalysts are required in very small amounts to carry out their function.
I believe that the role of catalyst is not restricted to chemistry and chemical reactions. A catalyst can change the world positively or negatively, a catalyst can change our lives both in positive or negative manner.
If we can become a positve catalyst of some kind and make a positive difference in some way, then I think it'll be a great rewarding achievement.
In the search for "World Peace", a catalyst is required. The highly ironic part of the above "World Peace", was the ideology died fairly quickly.
Since governments around the world and those who control the wealth of the world, do not want to bring about change for the better of the species, then the obvious truth becomes known.
It is left up to the individual people, and it has already been decidedly not in favor of the people, by governments and those who control the wealth, to be equal.
The educational systems are horrible, which cause poverty, because people who are uneducated are also unskilled workers, where skilled workers are required. Hence, bunches and bunches of people working dead-end jobs they hate working and a lifestyle that barely keeps them from living like the homeless. Some people are or have chosen homelessness versus compliance.
The catalyst that I see coming in the future is in the way people think. The next step is for more people to understand that they actually do have power within themselves to make a difference, not only in their life, but in other people's life as well.
However, it requires an awful lot of individuals to change the way they think, before change can happen. It can be one person, who begins a chain reaction.
That's my thoughts on it.
