Will anything last forever

Updated on July 20, 2012

Will human civilization last forever? Let me ask you this, will anything last forever. End is inevitable, irrevocable. Human have lost adherence to this simple truth and have all the more paved the way towards their end. Scientific theories suggest the universe will end… so why fret? Why think hard on matters so insignificant rather than do well to the society and to mankind to live the remaining time in peace. The question somehow inspired me to address all of you towards the end which cannot be stopped. We should think about the underlying issues and problems that the civilization currently faces rather than protecting our existence which is impossible. This hub is aimed at establishing a moral value of service to self and society and help achieve the common goals of global peace and sustainable development.

the death of dinosaurs


THEY WERE SUPREME BUT THEIR TIME ENDED TOO!


1. The End of Dinosaurs


The asteroid theory or the climate theory or the wimpers all suggest that the dinosaurs, the supreme creatures which ruled the planet in the Jurassic era, came to a tragic sudden death and were wiped out. Could any human match the strength of the dinosaurs, no! When there time was prime they ruled , strived and made nature their own. But when they disturbed the balance of nature they ended.


2. The end of Ice age


It marked the end of another era. The mammoths, saber tooth and other animals which ruled the ice age were fossilized.


3. Kingdoms and Civilizations


Here are historical examples of civilizations and kingdoms which strived, thrived and ruled various parts of the earth but came to the end

i. The Indus Valley Civilization

ii. The Harappa Civilization

iii. The Fall of Constantinople

iv. The Egyptian Empire

v. The Mesopotamian Civilization


I can give more examples but they are useless if they do not deliver the ultimate message to you. Don’t think about the end… it will come when it has to come… no one can stop it.

Where supreme things like these above ended, small rodents survived, the spiritual religions and the church survived, why? Because their ethos are based on peace, survival, brotherhood and morality. These underlying reasons are responsible for the never-ending popularity of Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Islam and other religions.

end of the sun

end of the universe

If you wish to see your ultimate future then it is also clear. Have a look at the following

1. The end of the Sun

2. The end of the Universe

We should know that we are the ones paving the way for the early demise of our civilization. We have exhausted our resources to an extent that negligible amount is left for the future generations.

We have global summits about sustainable development but have any major steps been taken?

What will we leave for our future generations if we obliterate our resources at such rate?

The numerous wars that we have fought across the centuries have rendered cold wars, enmities, broken sentiments and a ruptured civilization lost in the paths of development so deep that it will bring about its own end.

The nuclear wars and tests have led to genetic disorders which persist from umpteen decades and have rendered many of our fellow species extinct or on the verge of extinction.

Why have I written all this? This is to tell all of you that we need to lift our spiritual and moral sentiments but first we need to revisit them. In the pursuit of material gains and industrialization we have lost them. We should rise above the petty feeling of saving ourselves; instead we should indulge into a pinch of selflessness.

I hope I have not hurt any sentiments. I have just tried to deliver a short message here. We need to hold each other’s hands and face what is to come with brotherhood and not scamper around and find solutions on our own scraping the earth for no good.

“Everything which begins, will someday end”

      Nothin for sure will last forever, not even you or this hub or me....etc But, take a look and think why we always remember great people like Czar, Alexander the Great, the Pharoahs, Plato, Columbus...etc Those people will last forever with their deeds and innovations. This is teh only thing to last till the end of times.... Your deeds.

      @ shamelabboush: You are right! It is our deeds which never die. It is our soul that will never die. The message I convey is that why not make our deeds so full of compassion and sentiments so that whenever they are remembered they bring smiles and not jeers!

      This is an interesting article. I like your analogy with a single life and the overall life of the planet and universe. It is true we as a species are behaving in a way likely to bring about early death of individuals with excess eating, drinking and so on, and early death of the planet by recklessly using the resources. And as each of us makes individual changes for the better of ourselves, we do it for the planet also.

      I have been thinking a lot lately about how even when death is near (my parents are old) the spirit to live and create still goes on. It’s that spirit that may yet save us from prematurely destroying our planet.

      Thanks for a thought-provoking hub.

      Very interesting article Rahul. It really makes you think about the question. This is why it is so important to ponder such questions and take them into consideration. Time shows us that the answer is no. I feel as though we need to learn from the past in order to succeed in the future.

      Great discussion here. We often take life for granted. It is only when our life has been threatened that we begin to savor each moment. In youth, we feel we will live forever and then later as we age, we begin to acknowledge that the end is nigh. So the only choice left to us is to live one day at a time with the thought that today may be our last day on earth.

      Although I don't agree with everything you say. Life will always exist in one form or another I believe. Only our bodies are made of flesh and bone.

      But does it matter who agrees or disagrees with us? Can what's true for one not be untrue for another? Is it necessary that everybody thinks,feels and believes the same way?

    • rjbatty profile image

      rjbatty 4 years ago from Irvine

      Unless you happen to be religious and believe in a particular dogma, I do not find an impetus to do much of anything within a finite existence. The universe, even if it recycles itself between "big bang" and "big crunch" phases infinitely, doesn't give me a perk because my consciousness is limited to the here and now. Seeing the universe as meaningless doesn't propel me to run rampant nor to do much in a humanitarian way -- since both outlets lead to the same zero outcome. A number of people like to think that an extremely advanced extraterrestrial species would enjoy zipping through the universe. But, perhaps advanced knowledge merely leads to inertia. Since we are physical beings that experience innumerable forms of suffering, it makes sense to limit our individual pain and those of others -- even though there is no higher purpose for doing so. It makes sense to live harmoniously with others because nature itself inflicts enough misery upon us. We do not need to add to what nature dishes out. Other than this "purpose," I view our state of being as being basically paradoxical, i.e., having enough mental power to recognize our own existences but at the same time living temporally without any "cause" to lift our "spirits" beyond maintaining a tentative stasis. Objectively, anything that may give us even a fleeting sense of exultation is illusory -- just a kick of endorphins or dopamine, which either vanishes as suddenly as the chemical burst arises or fades more slowly -- returning us to the same state of unmotivated wakefulness. In the West depression has become a kind of epidemic -- probably due to the continued erosion of religious faith and the rise of scientific objectivity. If you believe that nothing lasts forever (as I do), where are we to derive any motivation, let alone a genuine experience of joy?

      Jessee R 4 years ago from Gurgaon, India

      First.. lemme tell you ... Writers like me yearn to see such a feedback and I am grateful to you for that...

      " advanced knowledge merely leads to inertia." I can understand this point... which I must say may be short but has a great insight to it.... For an example... the theory of parallel universes or the M theory takes solid theoretical shape after assuming 26 dimensions... now here is the Inertia... the state of rest... I do not understand how advanced minds lead into assumptions like these... I did not understand in the first year of my college.... that why were we taught Newtonian mechanics... if Einstein proved it wrong on the basis of the wrong assumptions Newton made.. ( although I respect Newton a lot for his contributions to science.. )

      Interpreting your great insightful statement I now move ahead..

      I would like to say that nature's inflicted sufferings on us are the results of our own doings don't you think? like

      Global Warming- Increased Carbon Emissions by Man

      Industrialization, Commercialization, Depletion of forest resources, Misguided use of fossil fuels and so many more misdeeds to name which cause the earths core to churn the wrong way my friend... and then we " paradoxically " forget our wrong initiatives and cry out in disgust to mother nature for the wailing storms and tornadoes over the seas...

      The motivation is to be derived from the desire of some to make the present a sustainable one...

      Where there are industrialist who cut down forests... there's is a kid in my neighborhood who plants a tree in his garden each day

      Where there's a man who beats his children and wife with baseball bats... there is another who sets examples of love and faith

      Where there is Adolf Hitler... there is Mother Teresa!

      Where there is the paradox... there is the inner search for enlightenment...

      Where there is strife.. there are people who vouch for the white flag of peace...

      Motivation is there my friend... we just need to look at it...

      Rahul, I refuse to litter your wall with anything other then words of congratulations and utter thanks, because to argue with this highly intelligent article you've provided here would be irrelevant for me to do, and would be seen by many of us level headed folks as pure rhetoric, arrogance, and out right unnecessary.

      You have motivated me to do something for you, since the humanitarian side of you has come out here and in such a profound way, and you've decided to go the extra yard.

      Your efforts to help others see the light of such universal compassion you possess, shows me that you have been enlightened on such a level of existence as well as equilibrium between all species on earth and not only with humans, I see you simply desire peace and sustainability for all things on this planetary surface.

      It is a true valiant and honorable thing to attempt at doing for us all bro by writing this. I feel your hub here has a truly powerful message for humanity that I'm sure many of us can agree with, especially when it comes to the role that religion has played on humanity as a whole.

      You will soon see what I speak of in terms of such a gift I will present to you, and to the entire world for writing this magnificent hub here.

      Great stuff! and I'm so glad I found this hub voted up and its getting shared far beyond hubville. I will personally recommend the reading of this hub to my closest relatives as well, because people need to think differently for sure.

      My friend even though we come from differing lands, on opposite sides of the globe, we both think alike, and I will share (on facebook in your inbox) with you a hub I wrote that is analogous to this one, and almost identical in its overall theme its set out for.

      I'm not going to let you off the hook quite so easily. I have lifted your response and inserted my questions and comments within the text.

      First.. lemme tell you ... Writers like me yearn to see such a feedback and I am grateful to you for that...

      " advanced knowledge merely leads to inertia." I can understand this point... which I must say may be short (Short? As in short-sighted? If so, in what way?) but has a great insight to it.... For an example... the theory of parallel universes or the M theory takes solid theoretical shape after assuming 26 dimensions... (I don't see how applying a multi-universe theory changes anything at our present table.) now here is the Inertia... the state of rest... (I was referring to inertia as a description for the lack of motivation, not a snooze.) I do not understand how advanced minds lead into assumptions like these... I did not understand in the first year of my college.... that why were we taught Newtonian mechanics... if Einstein proved it wrong on the basis of the wrong assumptions Newton made.. ( although I respect Newton a lot for his contributions to science.. ) (Again, you seem to be drifting aimlessly in your thought process. Yes, we're all familiar with Newton and Einstein's theory of relativity, but how does that fit in with my query?)

      Interpreting your great insightful statement I now move ahead..

      I would like to say that nature's inflicted sufferings on us are the results of our own doings don't you think? (No. I disagree. Man did not create cancer. Man did not create avalanches. Man did not create earthquakes. Man did not create poisonous snakes, etc., etc. Compared to what was already waiting for mankind on this planet as we evolved, our present impact on the earth and the detriment to our kind is a mere flea speck.) like

      Global Warming- Increased Carbon Emissions by Man

      Industrialization, Commercialization, Depletion of forest resources, Misguided use of fossil fuels and so many more misdeeds to name which cause the earths core to churn the wrong way my friend... and then we " paradoxically " forget our wrong initiatives and cry out in disgust to mother nature for the wailing storms and tornadoes over the seas...

      The motivation is to be derived from the desire of some to make the present a sustainable one... (Not even. I would be satisfied if there was some indisputable purpose to existence -- however transient.)

      Where there are industrialist who cut down forests... there's is a kid in my neighborhood who plants a tree in his garden each day

      Where there's a man who beats his children and wife with baseball bats... there is another who sets examples of love and faith

      Where there is Adolf Hitler... there is Mother Teresa! (This is all very touching, but the fact that some individuals are propelled toward action is not necessarily transferable to sentient individuals who see the universe as essentially meaningless. It's fine that some people want to pitch in and help others or that they may represent a counter force to destructive endeavors, but, again there is no intrinsic meaning in any of this.)

      Where there is the paradox... there is the inner search for enlightenment... (Perhaps the quest for enlightenment is nothing but a self-aggrandizing quest for moral superiority or a compensation for a faltering ego.)

      Where there is strife.. there are people who vouch for the white flag of peace...

      Motivation is there my friend... we just need to look at it... (I see people doing a bunch of stuff, but in the big scheme of things, is it really more motivational than watching ants build a nest?)

      Mike, my brother! I am glad you connect to my work in such fashion and am humbled by your kind words. I pleasantly think of the day I virtually met you!

      A writer feels good about himself when someone as wonderful as you evokes in him a motivational temper in lieu of his work. That is the real feel of honor.

      Rjbatty! I would love to be hooked….. Here is my step by step answer …

      " advanced knowledge merely leads to inertia." I can understand this point... which I must say may be short (Short? As in short-sighted? If so, in what way?)-

      [Not short sighted but just short… that is small. ]

      But has a great insight to it.... For an example... the theory of parallel universes or the M theory takes solid theoretical shape after assuming 26 dimensions... (I don't see how applying a multi-universe theory changes anything at our present table.)-

      [ I was presenting my interpretation of your statement which evoked a scientific temper in me ]

      now here is the Inertia... the state of rest... (I was referring to inertia as a description for the lack of motivation, not a snooze.)-

      [Abstract and realistic is difficult to relate… but here also if we look into my example of advanced knowledge we see that a such a block itself creates the lack of motivation you talk about and then the assumptions have to be made to suffice with the ongoing work. ( BTW I am still appreciating your statement)]

      I do not understand how advanced minds lead into assumptions like these... I did not understand in the first year of my college.... that why were we taught Newtonian mechanics... if Einstein proved it wrong on the basis of the wrong assumptions Newton made.. ( although I respect Newton a lot for his contributions to science.. ) (Again, you seem to be drifting aimlessly in your thought process. Yes, we're all familiar with Newton and Einstein's theory of relativity, but how does that fit in with my query?)-

      [As I say below… I presented in these lines an interpretation of your statement I considered remarkable.]

      Interpreting your great insightful statement I now move ahead..

      I would like to say that nature's inflicted sufferings on us are the results of our own doings don't you think? (No. I disagree. Man did not create cancer. Man did not create avalanches. Man did not create earthquakes. Man did not create poisonous snakes, etc., etc. Compared to what was already waiting for mankind on this planet as we evolved, our present impact on the earth and the detriment to our kind is a mere flea speck.)-

      [You talk in a way that nature stands for the destruction and removal of mankind, but you forget that the oxygen that we breathe, the protection for the UV rays of the sun( which is one cause of cancer) and all essentials for the continuation of the human life cycle are provided to us by nature itself. The mistake simple people like me and you make is that we consider forces which balance the world for us and protest our present and future as destructive forces on a large scale.

      If avalanches and earthquakes were meant for the purpose of eradicating humans then we would not have the time to use our brains and develop resources to withstand such forces.

      Now when I talk about natures’ inflicted sufferings I talk about global warming and other stuff that has lately happened, you tend to mix it with the forces which balance the world around us. Do you know what is the root cause and history of cancer? When each human is solely responsible for his existence according to practical approach then why blame nature for disease?]

      The motivation is to be derived from the desire of some to make the present a sustainable one... (Not even. I would be satisfied if there was some indisputable purpose to existence -- however transient.)-

      [ With no offence my friend, you and your thoughts do not control the general scheme of things, If there was no satisfaction and approval of the facts and abstract philosophies which lie in little things around us and sometimes in some people, I am pretty sure the world today would have no leader in their records.

      If people would not have been motivated by the thought of better existence there would have been no Renaissance, no American Revolution and no Indian War of Independence.]

      Where there are industrialist who cut down forests... there's is a kid in my neighborhood who plants a tree in his garden each day

      Where there's a man who beats his children and wife with baseball bats... there is another who sets examples of love and faith

      Where there is Adolf Hitler... there is Mother Teresa! (This is all very touching, but the fact that some individuals are propelled toward action is not necessarily transferable to sentient individuals who see the universe as essentially meaningless. It's fine that some people want to pitch in and help others or that they may represent a counter force to destructive endeavors, but, again there is no intrinsic meaning in any of this.)-

      [ it is not necessary my friend, but such acts but such some individuals have mould the world’s path in wondrous ways and you never know when a thought provokes a mass, The revolutions which are spread through history and have shaped the present of man were initiated by single individuals before they took massive forms. So at times individual actions do instigate a mass reaction.]

      Where there is the paradox... there is the inner search for enlightenment... (Perhaps the quest for enlightenment is nothing but a self-aggrandizing quest for moral superiority or a compensation for a faltering ego.)-

      [ If this your stream of thoughts then do you believe that people like Lord Buddha, Gandhi, Asoka, Muhammad, Martin Luther King and a lot more others did what they did for ego satisfaction or compensation. I do not think so my friend. The quest for enlightenment is not to be confused with the Greed and Lust for Enlightenment as in Hitler, Stalin, Mao , Rasputin, Ravana and many more.

      The quest is a peaceful path and people do not crave results there, they yearn for deeds, it is only the followers who fall by themselves and transform the messengers into leaders.]

      Where there is strife, there are people who vouch for the white flag of peace...

      Motivation is there my friend... we just need to look at it... (I see people doing a bunch of stuff, but in the big scheme of things, is it really more motivational than watching ants building a nest?)-

      [Now when you are watching ants build a nest, what you see and feel is not up to me…I can just make an interpretation that I find the little beings and the hard work and sheer labor they do with high degree of patience very motivational and share this interpretation with you. You may discard my thought or connect to it in two ways.

      It will either generate a positive or a negative temper in you. If the temper is positive you will share my interpretation without question and if it is the other way round you may put forth your inquisitiveness and then a discussion would start.]
