This post is inspired by a comment left on an earlier one. Thanks SO much to everyone who has left a comment—it makes a huge difference to me.
The thought expressed was… what about having sex and making babies and population growth and there being enough room on the planet for everyone, if no-one dies? …to paraphrase.
My take on it is that our thinking there’s not enough room for everyone boils down to our beliefs in limitations. We can cultivate the mindset that there is enough love, money, food and room for everyone, whether we are thinking globally or closer to home. Who knows what might happen if we all did that!
And if humanity as a whole progresses to the point where death is a thing of the past, I’d imagine we’d have capabilities we don’t have now. Who knows… there’s a whole universe out there. Maybe we’ll be exploring it!
I’d love to hear what you think. Can we find the space for everybody?
