Forums - General Discussion - Humanity could benefit from a soft reset

DaAndy said:
I just sometimes think about an scenario like there is an huge global danger and it will kill 99% of the people on the planet in 20 years. It only can be avoided if ALL countries are hardly working together for these next 20 years as only then they can find a solution to protect the people.
And then I would hope that these 20 years of 100% cooperation are enough to show everyone that war and such stuff is completely useless and no one ever things about war and such.

That scenario would put us all dead.

One lesson you can take from any zombie apocalypse is that the worse enemies usually are the humans that remain alive. They know they need to cooperate to survive, but they will fight among themselves and end dead.

This sounds kinda like the Georgia Guidestones.

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

Most of these 10 directions seem fine.

Problem is it's about 7.0 billion too late. The secret person behind these stones hoping for a slow natural decline to eventually make this reality?

A future, 'I told ya so'?

Well that is why I said most. Because unless they were also thinking of killing people and/or controlling birth to keep population reduced the natural course is population growth until stagnation due to cost of living/comfort of having 0-2 child per couple. On most developed countries we are having slow reduction of population along time but the rest of the globe is still growing population. I would say we probably will hit 15 or even 20B people before reduction becomes a natural occurence worldwide.

I don't disagree. Based on what you just said, which isn't out of the question, you can't help but wonder if they do want to control the pop somehow, unless they are in it for the long game, like triple overtime long.

Fairly expensive stunt to pull just for a gag me thinks.

So here's an idea that's been on my mind that I'ma just throw out there. In video games, when you die to a boss or what have you, you try again now having the knowledge of your previous attempt which should mean you do better. You know what good moves to make as well as what bad moves not to make. I was thinking if only we could try something similar with real life. Delete all humans that have been tainted by the bad ideas of prior generations all at once, leaving only the innocent young children and babies to grow up and reform humanity with the good ideas we've had. Pretty extreme to kill most of humanity like that, but it's had more than enough time to get better on it's own. It's clear at this point that it's only gonna happen through great force and sacrifice. I genuinely think this idea would be effective, as even if it doesn't work out the first time you can just repeat the process much like you do for bosses. Of course there's no way to make this actually happen for real, and even if there was, most people would be against it, but it's fun to think about.

Covid 19 doesn't really impact the young and there could be multiple waves to learn from. 

Let's hope it doesn't turn out to be a reset though.

Can't wait for the country to be ruled by the next home 'schooled' generation lol.

It's 12:45 am and there's a group of teenagers 'playing' in the park across the street since there is no school tomorrow. Soft reset is becoming more likely since at this rate the new normal will be unemployed in a severe recession. Scenes of the band continuing to play while the Titanic slowly sinks come to mind.

Founding Fathers come to mind. The British Empire reset? Let freedom reign.

For some reason this whole current situation makes me think of Kid nation
https://www.bustle.com/articles/57331-8-reasons-cbs-kid-nation-was-more-traumatizing-for-children-than-the-hunger-games
That was a fun effed up reality tv experiment.

The colony aired later, the adult version
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Colony_(American_TV_series)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1470018/
follows ten cast members in an environment that simulates life after the collapse of civilization due to a catastrophic epidemic

They got it all wrong anyway. Nothing but sitting at home waiting for time to move on lol.
Reality as always stranger than fiction.



Did you create and set covid loose on us?

When I remembered the thread in May, and saw the time frame it was created, I couldn't help but be intrigued. The timing and relation to covid so far was a little bit eerie. Kill off the old, spare the young, multiple waves if need be. Maybe they're just tight with QAnon or Alex Jones behind the scenes?

Let's just hope player 1 doesn't need a respawn or two.
