It’s hard to believe that it has taken 3.4 billion years for life on earth to create the iphone 5 but that’s about how long it’s taken.
You see…….as close as scientists can predict, single-celled life on this planet appeared 3.4 billion years ago and since the inception of life, those organisms have always thrived, produced and generally made life slightly better for the offspring of those organisms. This is how we all got to where we are today September 21, 2012 and the iphone 5.
Being productive, thriving and growing is coded into the DNA and spirit of each and every living thing that has ever graced this planet. It is one of God’s most amazing gifts. For billions of years it has been this way. Interestingly enough when an organism, breed of animal or race of people stopped thriving ( got lazy ), the process of “natural selection” takes place and those living things fall subject to disease, starvation and eventual extinction.
This most commonly in the animal world where over breeding of deer brings rabies or herds of roaming cattle deplete the resources in and die of starvation.
As this relates to humans, lack of education, self-awareness, and motivation leads to war, disease and unending poverty. This also has always been this way.
Mankind has truly accomplished some amazing things in the 13,000 years since the cavemen have been floating around. Our achievements have been many…… Just look at the fact from the time the Wright Brothers took their first flight to the time we put a man on the moon was a mere 90 years. Does anybody really remember what life was like without smartphones? ( I kind miss beepers myself). And today we have the Iphone 5.
All this is great, but I have concerns about an expanding worldwide population that is of the mindset of ” Take what you can get, while you can get it”. The concept of “Take” is directly opposed to natures and God’s law of “Thrive”.
Continual taking, dramatically diminishes the human spirit and crushes ones sense of self-worth.
When the takers outnumber the producers in a civilization, it is an alarm bell that the end is coming. The result usually ends up in war, disease outbreak, or some cataclysmic event that dramatically “thins the herd”. No amount of technology created can stop the Law of Nature even though it might be able to bend them.
So…..a standing ovation to the inspired creators of the Iphone 5! Many you continue to be creative and thrive.
