¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 YOUR work/life-style WILL be changing in the near future; either by forces beyond your influence/control, or through intention and in cooperation with others. It is y/our choice.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 These processes are already underway. How they will develop both temporally and geographically is unpredictable. Worst climate models, recently forecast collapse to near extinction in 8-20 years. (What was anticipated a century on, when we would all be dead and gone, has been moved up to threaten us.) Both fragility and resilience will manifest. At some point, these Collapse Processes will DISRUPT Y/OUR LIVES.
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 All of us, receiving this message, are dedicated to the Survival/Thrival of Humankind, by our “efforts” towards objectives/goals through creative means. We all have aspirations beyond our personal need and desires. Although successful, to certain criteria, towards achieving our goals – in “making our future more secure” – they now appear distant to impossible.
EVERYTHING EVERYONE IS DOING WILL CHANGE!
¶ 6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 I compose, to share, my belief that HUMANKIND CAN SURVIVE (whatever the extent of the consequences of runaway global heating) and THRIVE for millennia as a nu emergent HUMANITY/GAIA.
¶ 8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 0 The human species can survive, with many other species, and the DNA of many more. Some human persons will survive, for their service essential for this to happen, not because “they want to live a few more years”
¶ 11 Leave a comment on paragraph 11 0 PROBABLE FACT: Some humans have the potential to survive, no matter the extent of runaway global heating. They could create fleets of linked “spaceships”, on Earth, not in space. Human ingenuity can engineer/construct a minimal survival/thrival system before collapse. With more time and luck, these could be mass produced, although never enough for everybody.
¶ 13 Leave a comment on paragraph 13 0 Research will determine the best locations for the “Space Colonies” We should explore locations on/in the Antarctic Ice Cap and in large bodies of water (oceans and large lakes). Phase change will keep temps constant until the glaciers melt or the oceans evaporate. Furthermore, we can preserve much of the DNA of Gaia, and re-emerge a new, viable Gaia, even if it takes many millions of years. We, who survive will join the temporal holarchy of cosmos, from nanoseconds to eons.
¶ 15 Leave a comment on paragraph 15 0 To me, Larry/nuet, the extinction of all living humans is minor relative to the extinction of other “higher” life in Gaia, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the killing of the future potentials for a viable HUMANITY in harmony with a nu Gaia. Below you will discover an OPTIMISTIC path.

Extensive reports on the potential of “extinction” by 2026 can be found only through searching, and may be blocked by authoritarian forces. This NEWS is not only not found on MSM, but also not found on progressive lists of relevant urls. Censorship? Yesterday (08/21/2018), a progressive curator included two urls: about the Arctic melting fast and the release of methane – but no mention of collapse or extinction.
¶ 17 Leave a comment on paragraph 17 0 Popular activist, longtime warning about climate change, Guy McPherson, is now living in Belize, awaiting the collapse with his wife – but still active . He now talks about Global Dimming, where existing sulfates in the atmosphere cools, and if we stop burning dirty coal global heating will increase – immediately and greatly! Disasters that shut down cooling water to nuclear power plants may result in their exploding. This “wrinkle” I have only become aware of, but it has been known for a decade! He and other activists face these abrupt times with compassion and humor.
¶ 18 Leave a comment on paragraph 18 0 Quality advice on psychologically facing “extinction” is already available. However, the focus is on the suffering and death of every human person and what appears to be ignored is that there will be no more humans (and other highly evolved living organisms/species); no more babies, children, cultures, art, music, love, philosophy, science, literature, dialog, etc. Also, the great future humans had the potential to creatively emerge, over centuries and millennia, in a deeper relationship with Gaia, will be lost.
¶ 19 Leave a comment on paragraph 19 0 There have been persons and orgs concerned about collapse and extinction for decades, but estimating them to occur at the end of the century – after they were dead. Now, ALL HUMANS (except those who will die in the next few years) will experience and be participants in the extinction.
¶ 20 Leave a comment on paragraph 20 0 Jem Bendell was an accomplished corporate professional who converted to an activist on Deep Adaptation while facing collapse and extinction. As I compose this post (08/20/2018), Jem posted on Barriers to Dialog on Deep Adaptation.
¶ 21 Leave a comment on paragraph 21 0 There is considerable agreement that Runaway Global Heating has or is soon to begin – triggered by the removal of the Arctic ice sheet (expected in a few years). The 2026 “extinction” forecast is based on a super-rapid spread of mutual catalyzing disasters. The methane heating feedback releasing more methane, etc., could happen more like a global “violent eruption” (over months to years) than a slower “evolutionary” process (over centuries).
¶ 22 Leave a comment on paragraph 22 0 Would broadcasting this news lead to major panics in populations? What populations would believe, or not believe, this news? Some of the top elite must also be aware of this threat. Would major panics have positive or negative longer-term consequences?
¶ 23 Leave a comment on paragraph 23 0 REMINDER: I am proposing a way some humans could survive and eventually re-emerge a nu Gaia. We will attempt to attract those with celebrative attitudes towards the END OF HUMANKIND, to shift their energy to the “difficult” REBIRTH OF HUMANITY/GAIA after the COLLAPSE OF HUMANKIND/GAIA.
