Last night I was invited to a Swiss wedding celebration. It was interesting to experience the dynamic of people and languages, as the bride and groom will soon be moving to Thailand. It was a wonderful time and experience.
I need to be getting on a bike to go taste a wedding cake sample that a gifted pastry chef is making. Call these research and development calories that have to be consumed for the betterment of quality control. I know it is a hard job - i volunteer!
Part of me laments there is only 24 hours in a day, as I spent a few hours on Skype with my friend in Hong Kong and we discussed the ideas for what the future may be like and what are the main issues and possible solution for humanity. Both of us agree that the world we live in today will be radically different as the next wave of technological maturity happens. Of course, that is if man doesn’t decide to revert back to destroying himself at a faster rate via war.
Me? I am learning that the process to integrate into a new culture and society will simply take time. Patience is one of the things I never really waited around for. Instead, I would look for other ways over, under, to the right, left, behind, and usually the straight-ahead approach was the first.
While I will probably be dead before the ideas and concepts that were discussed today happen, a part of me will be sad, as the optimist in me hopes humanity wakes up and instead of repeating history and using the overall ideas for either fear, control, or some monetary gain – man will use them to make the quality of life better for his fellow man.
I did come up with a strange question; if anyone can answer it, write me. It is called the potato chip question.
“If you gave a man all the chips he needed to live, would he still want more? would he learn to crave and eat more?”
