Does anybody know why there’s such a lack of trust these days? Could it be that science is to blame for its reliance on proof? Think of all the mobile phones on the planet all being driven by proof. There can’t be any room for trust, they are two foundation beliefs that can’t coexist within the same universe.

I’ve believed for a while that anyone caught with a ‘smart’ phone addiction was liable for deletion/extinction from the planet if they won’t, or can’t, let go of this useless and worthless piece of garbage. The real version is based on the individual, telepathy and unconditional love.

Did you enjoy your new year celebrations? I don’t think we deserve them.

  1. The less people around you, then you trust them and they trust you.
    Now we have 25 million around us so there is little trust and the trust that is there is deteriorating.
    The more people there are, the worse the amount of resources for any one person.
