TECHNOLOGY..........

In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning. I think of it as the Atlantis passage, and I've quoted it a few times before. "As I have said, this isn't the first time your civilization has been at this brink," God tells Walsch. "I want to repeat this, because it is vital that you hear this. Once before on your planet, the technology you developed was far greater than your ability to use it responsibly. You are approaching the same point in human history again. It is vitally important that you understand this. Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely. Your society is on the verge of becoming a product of your technology rather than your technology being a product of your society. When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself."

ROBERT REDFORD'S MOVIE: STAND WITH HIM AND DEMAND CLIMATE ACTION!!!



When I was about 28 and happily single, Robert Redford was the hottie of the screen, and I was certainly one of his greatest fans.  At the time, I was working in a huge hotel, multiplex in nature.  It was absolutely my favorite part-time job, ever.  Since it was near a theatre/entertainment center, the hotel has numerous celebrities as their guests. Almost any job in that sphere intersected in some service manner with the stars on a daily basis.

One evening, I was told to take room service to one Robert Redford! Ecstatic was certainly my core emotion!  So, I rang his doorbell with his food.  The person who answered was somewhat of a surprise to me.  First, he was very average height, and I had expected the the immensely tall person of my projections.  Well, okay...

Then I expected a degree of patronizing, detached response we had from many stars, no matter how perfect one had made the service. Not so, by any means.  I certainly anticipated a brief, gentlemanly acceptance of his food.  But Redford was amazingly gracious, friendly, and one would have thought he was that favorite older cousin you looked up to.  Warm, respectful, and witty, yet he was serious, intentional, and seemingly with substance.  I intuited  after several minutes that Redford had substance and character far deeper than a generic Hollywood image. Generally, I am pretty spot on with that, once I get my projections out of the way!

Redford took a few extra minutes to chat.  Immediately engaging in a very authentic manner, I was a bit wistful that ....  the job was done.For decades since then, I been interested in Redford's intense advocacy on many levels.  I sense he is the real deal.

I offer this movie created by him, as Trustee of NRDC (Natural Resoures Defense Council). While brief, it makes the point and needs to be heard.
