New hard drive for humanity

By Stephen P. O’Donnell Sr
July 31, 2013

The secrets, the answers, the solutions are most often hidden within the simple basics. Complexity, bureaucracy and rhetoric are fertile breeding grounds for misinformation and untruths, not to mention great cover for those seeking to perpetrate ill will upon humanity. These conditions also provide for the proliferation of viruses, but offer little in the way of solutions. The reason I bring this up is that I believe humanity has been infected with numerous viruses. Not the biological type but rather the type that infects the entire being: the mind, body, and spirit.

Listen, I am admittedly not a “technology guy,” nor am I inclined to willingly accept many new technologies. That said, I do recognize that technology, for better or worse (I am on the worse side) has become a dominant factor in our very existence as a species. It is from this angle that I approach our problem and offer a solution. So, I came across this offer while surfing the Universe during Ki Breathing Meditation one evening.

I believe the time has come to replace humanity’s hard drive. I’m talking about a complete reset to zero. Hell, let’s even change the date to 0000 ANHD (After New Hard Drive, of course). The new software installation for humanity’s new hard drive would include the following: No human being owes any other human being anything other than common courtesy, kindness, compassion and love. This includes the forgiveness of all financial debts owed by and to any individual, corporation, or government. This also includes the forgiveness of any and all wrongs perpetrated by one group of people upon another from the present day all the way back to the Rift Valley. In the spirit of simplicity, there is no other program written into the new software. That’s it.

Unfortunately a simple re-boot will not suffice, as a re-boot would simply restore the existing hard drive to its beginning, restore humanity to its beginning. That would still leave the original software intact, which contains all of the programs that have gotten us into the mess we are in today, including Selfishness 1.0, Ego 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, Hate 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, as well as the various versions of Greed, Envy and so on.
