it's a bit rough surviving on this rock

... I don't want to scare anybody, but if you really
stop and think about surviving as a species,
we humans are in quite a precarious situation

... we exist in a very harsh space environment,
on a giant rock, circling an even more giant
blob of radioactive plasma

... furthermore, we can only happily exist, in
just an extremely thin layer of atmosphere
which clings to the rock

... and somehow, because we have a few thousand
years of recorded history behind us, we think
that humans are somehow entitled to having this
warm cozy relationship go on forever

... it ain't gonna happen, human civilization,
as we know it, will ultimately end

... the Srimad Bhagavatam says that we are already
5000 years into the Age of Kali Yuga, and for
about another 5000 years, humans will remember
about God and Krishna

... but after that, humans will be degenerated
so far in Spirit, that they will not have any
God-conciousness left in them

... it will be a very selfish world and it will
last around 400,000 more years before it is all
ended by the final return of Krishna, Who will
witness the destruction

... then, after a long long long sleep, it will
start all over again

... I am not an authorized spokesman for the
Krishna Conciousness movement, nor am I an
expert on the Srimad Bhagavatam, but this
is what I gather from my readings so far.

Thank You Vishnu, for this, another day,
and Hare Krishna
