While watching the news, I found myself first numbed with fear for humanity’s future. Images of war, disease, and social injustices scattered across my T.V. Then, my mind began to wander. To become lost within its own alternate reality. To swim effortlessly upstream towards another dimension, not so unlike our own. Not in the beginning anyway. In my waking dream I see an instantaneous global awakening. A universal shift in consciousness towards acceptance and unity. What would happen if a our brains suddenly “awoke”?
I imagine hordes of people across the globe dressed in varying military uniforms dropping weapons, simultaneously. Ripping the uniforms from their war battered bodies they reclaim their individuality, shedding their disposable clone statuses. Refusing to be tools for death, destruction, and the persecution of others.
Perhaps, everyone would refuse to use currency for ANYTHING. Casually strolling into any store, everyone would be able to get whatever they need or want. Currency of any kind would be made useless. Social classes would be shattered. If money were obsolete and there were no profits to be made, would food be shipped throughout the world and dispersed among those countries that need it so desperately? How many children would die of starvation or lack of medicine?
The illusory borders of nations would no longer be acknowledged. People would travel freely, whenever and wherever they desired.
Religion would not be abolished, but accepted completely in any form as long as it didn’t cause maltreatment. Everyone would see how ridiculous it is to judge/harm others based on beliefs that have no impact on them personally.
The rigid boundaries placed on gender roles would vanish and everyone would be able marry whomever they please.
WHAT IF there was only one universal law that stated, “Do not intentionally cause harm or take from others.”
I just want to add that I am intelligent enough to see the real life problems with my dream world. But, this is just that. A dream world. A collection of pretty ideas. I am adding this to my Rants and Ramblings section for a reason. :) Feel free to add anything I didn’t think of. We can build our alternate reality together.
