The Noosphere of Light and Life Is Here - Part 1

In the thought of Vladimir Vernadsky and Teilhard de Chardin, the noosphere (sometimes spelled noösphere) can be seen as the "sphere of human thought" being derived from the Greek νούς ("nous") meaning "mind" + σφαίρα (sfaira) meaning "sphere", in the style of "atmosphere" and "biosphere." In the original theory of Vernadsky, the noosphere is the third in a succession of phases of development of the Earth, after the geosphere (inanimate matter) and the biosphere (biological life). Just as the… Continue

I have finally figured out who I am--I am a humanist! :)

This is probably one of the greatest feelings in my whole life-- I have finally figured out who I am and how I relate to this world through my thoughts, actions, and love towards others. I feel empowered.

So I was reading some articles on the BBC about how Paul McCartney is/came to perform in Israel (I am not sure if he is currently there, but if someone could tell me now, that would be great! :) ). Anyways, I read the article about how his comming to perform in Israel was long awaited,… Continue

Please, try to find this book and read it...

Choices Of Life Poetry Of Life Tony Robin Bulley New Zealand

The Choice is Ours

Tony Robin Bulley 2005 ©

I sometimes wonder if we really care

Or just pretend and gaze with vacant stare

At all the death and pain in this life

Is it not our concern for others strife

Or do we feel we want to shout and cry

but in the end just walk on by

For their grief may be our day of regret

For what we left behind we cannot forget

Nor if we close our eyes and sit and pray

Without change today will be… Continue

Ahmenidijad Visits the UN

So I was reading the news that Ahmenidijad is going to the UN tommorow to speak.

It's sad that people think that Iran has nuclear weapons, when in reality, they are using it just for peaceful purposes.

However, the one thing that I am upset about is that the fact that the Iranian President will not sit down and speak to either the Israel Ambassador to the UN, or the Israeli President. Even if they don't agree on anything, I think that it is about time that they talk -- face to face,… Continue

Do I Qualify As A Peacemaker?

The most attractive thing about mepeace when I first joined was the diversity of views and the low volume of hate language among members.

I don’t want that to change. But lately I found myself smiling less and raising my eyebrows more as I read through the daily discussions.

Tell me what you think. Should I run for my life, or just ignore them (the mepeace wars)?

My opinions about the Middle East are based in the unseen: In history and in G-d. I call Israel… Continue

Taking a couple of weeks off MEpeace

I've spent over 20 hours these past 10 days reading and answering a couple of posts. That's a lot of hours considering the little time I have to spare. How productive was that? Is it worth it or am I wasting my time?

I started wondering why I was came here to start with. What brought me back day after day. Could it be pleasure? Did I enjoy the blame game that some members drag everyone in? Did I appreciate the endless and repetitive arguments in which anger and sarcasm took over? I… Continue
