    But think, a familiar person, more about this topic. I quote Makarevich: "we should not bend under the changing world: one day it will bend under us" and Tsoi: "if there is a step, there must be a trace." The probability that if I do not leave the editorial offices of scientific journals in peace, something in the outside world is changing is infinitely higher than if everything stands still. After all, a change in the world can be anything, but non-change is a single thing. Yes, the world could be changing for the worse because I am trying to get happiness. But the world is changing in any way!



    As example of caused change:
    The Earth's core has stopped spinning faster than the surface

    Small positive acts can have effects far beyond the act itself.

    In order for the world to obey you, you need to believe that it is you who owns this world. Yes, feel free to spoil everyone's mood, as if you have everyone and everyone owes you.

    The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. Mark 1:22

    Why would I want the world to obey me?

    Nope, no need. The world is constantly changing as a result of all the threads weaving through it.

    If a butterfly flaps it's wings in Japan, could the air waves from it's wings be influencing weather patterns in Canada?

    I'm larger than a butterfly. I'm a dragon.

    IMO, trying to will the world into being something other than it is, is an impossible dream.

    However what I can change is myself. If I can change myself for the better then maybe the world will also change for the better along with me.

    What do I know of "the world" that I should presume it needs changing?

    The only "world" I know is the one in my head that's pretending to be the one outside it. :)

    But THAT one I can change. It's not easy, but it can be changed. I know, because I've done it.

    I had to give up my plan to cause a disruption of plate tectonics by causing the simultaneous eruption of volcanoes in the Ring of Fire. I was going to order nuclear weapons from Amazon and have them one day deliver them to strategic addresses all around the Pacific. But it turns out Amazon doesn't sell them and won't return my emails about sourcing them for delivery.

    No. My aspirations are not that large. I figure if I work on me and focus on any problems I have then the rest of the world doesn't have that to deal with.

    Father taught me science is wrong. And every Brother in all nations the world of men need to change. By information.

    As termed no man is God. And men said I'll name the whole planet Earth a God O as a body owner. The place.

    So why would you theory to change its type?
