Adam and Eve and the Snake by Mark Pol (Lost in New York a few years ago)

As the wind of change is raging over our planet, we try to survive in our classical way of living.

Like an empty can who is pushed forwards by that wind and we will never know when it will be stopped and where.

Are we empty cans who are hoping that time is changing? We are no empty cans. We are intelligent animals and we must stop to behave like the empty can!

We must scan our horizons of possibilities to survive these difficult times. Luke Rendell a biological scientist spoke about our cosmic loneliness on this planet.

Humans are a resulting force in the ecological and evolutional context. We can’t behave differently in the speech of this time and also, we have shown are own limitations in the still raging wars, racism and antisemitism.

We are not conscious of that cosmic loneliness. If that should be the case maybe we will behave differently in these apocalyptic times. Then we have to stop our move to a dystopian world. That wind of change should change our thoughts and move it into another direction.

Paradise Lost (John Milton) contains classic Christian themes. There were Adam and Eve and the snake. That was a simple way of telling us that we must not listen to bad advice.

How should we in these times bring our self the realization that our cosmic loneliness…
