But Dreamweaver, humanity has a history of war
and are they mindful or dazzled by physicality
So, we have to pay attention to the mind in order
that we do not deceive ourselves into believing we
are a body that only lasts one lifetime then to be
Discarded. :character-oldtimer:

Dukey, I understand your philosophy, but even if it is all factual, if this life is an illusion or dream, for instance,it is surely what we are meant to be dealing with right now? We can't know everything, we can only work with what concepts we have, and in our own situation?

For me, I can agree with much this bloke says, but not all. May be we are gradually working towards fewer 'wars', but when they happen they have an increasing effect on populations. It just needs insane leaders using 'fear of the other' to convince people to follow them, and I don't see it stopping soon, regardless of this man's hopes.

If anyone can't access the link, it is to a video believing that it is when opponents make an effort to understand one another on a human level that they can begin to find common ground.
A short snippet from Oprah -

"What can help change this us-versus-them mentality into realizing that we're all in this together?" Oprah asks.

"I think anything that re-humanizes other people," Charles says. "When you see your enemy's humanity, then the operating assumption that had powered the conflict may change."

Hmm difficult, perhaps the very obstacles places in our path
are put there to overcome, but there is always a way.
music is the universal language with which we can express our common humanity. \:D/ \:D/

That's a very sensible video, DW, and ought to be seen by a lot of people.
