Will anything last forever
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!
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.
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.
