There's a sea change a comin',
comin' for us all.
We're bound to get swept up in it,
all ridin' on this ball.
Since what you see, is what you get,
learn to see it all...
It's time to acknowledge expansion as the fifth basic human need.
For years, there were three accepted basics...food, sex, and shelter.
Recently, most have begun to recognize intoxication as the fourth.
These basic requirements have ruled our lives, since the dawn of time.
Until they are taken care of, nothing else happens.
There has also, always been expansion.
Now, as we rapidly run out of places, expansion seems impossible.
We have lost a large portion of ourselves.
A basic human need, while not yet extinct, lies dormant.
We run ourselves ragged, trying to prevent extinction of species we've endangered.
This specie...us...is about to become endangered by the loss of expansion from our collective psyche.
We've messed with our own well being.
By now, we should have achieved the awareness to take action.
The ability to do so, is tempered only by willingness.
Yes, even in these treacherous times, with our hackles up, and our nostrils flared, awareness of the balance must be kept in perspective.
Surviving the treacherous times won't matter, without all five needs intact.
With a basic motivator lost, the survivors won't be Homo Sapiens.
They'll be some new, unrecognizable, devolved branch of Humanity.
Even without the dreaded Nuclear Armageddon, Homo Sapiens is well on the way to extinction, by our own foolishness.
The Future can include escalating levels of clarity, leading to a brighter outlook, or become pure, straight to the brain, agenda driven hocus-pocus.
Hunker in the bunker, or cast off for ports unknown.
It's our call.
