  7. The shortest distance between two points is no fun.
  9. When I first uttered those words to a friend while volunteering at the NFP space called MultiKulti I was not consciously aware of the stretch to its meaning and the implication it has to daily living as well as the fate of our future as a species. That friend got the sense of meaning and we mutually agreed in laughter.
  11. Upon much contemplation I realized how this expression can apply to leading a meaningful life: how living a meaningful life could be about the quality with each other through the creative insight from mutual social conductivity. Human survival is dependent on the conductivity of socializing with each other. In contrast, industry has set a stage where temptation to over-weigh the value of efficiency and intelligence over the importance to human’s social conductivity. Humans are living in a time of accelerated technology and with it humans are at a point in time where they are compelled towards the acceptance in their own re-creation of their capacity and power of material output. On that path to accelerate humankind's evolution artificially, humans will be subverted and subdued to machine like form toward a stark ignorance among some humans' sense of superiority and/or denial of/or toward YHWH. Human existence is and has historically become a commodity of power and influence from both overt and covert enslavement; in such case of today for example, civilians are conditioned to accept an excessive workload and with much less monetary value in return along with their significant others in order to simply struggle to survive living paycheck to paycheck. The social-economic influences of automation and efficiency devalue in competition toward a loss of jobs only to benefit in abundance of resources to the workers' 'higher-ups,' or simply: to the benefit of modern day slave masters.
  13. It is not until the element of social creation and when in a group of social conductivity do we tap into creative insight. Much of what consuming without creation leads is an apathetic attitude of acceptance towards and in contrast to machine like efficiency rather than meaningful social conductivity. This sort of unthinking is what drives human purpose to become like machine; the process of fallibly re-creating ourselves against YHWH’s infallible creation is what will set the path towards a trans-humankind existence. Artificially accelerating human evolution to the same fate that YHWH saw of the Giants in summoning the flood the account of Genesis and the first book of Enoch will only beg of YHWH and his Watchers to respond in the creation of a new Earth and a new Heaven with the destruction of the old. Partway in Genesis and further explained in the first book of Enoch, the daughters of humankind were impregnated by the nephilim creating the Giants of great knowledge and power, only to meet their fate through a never ending gluttony in devouring resources and life including the humans upon the Earth. With YHWH's gifts given upon humans and nature we become content just through our social conductivity channeling Agape love, understanding and acceptance.
  15. How we divert from the path of contentment has increasingly encroached upon the way we socialize through our ever increasing dependence on our devices. Soon these devices can lay dormant our faculties of mind, spirit and heart only be resolved through the bio-integration of such devices. This process has already begun, giving for example a calculator to a child trying to learn arithmetic short circuits their opportunity and capacity to understand the qualified and quantified relationships of the elements in our physical environments. I think we can all relate to the encroachment of smartphones in memorizing for us phone numbers that we used to have to remember on our own. This has demonstrated deficiency that only further encourages an integration of such technology in our biology. Also in ancient times before the invention of paper and pigment, generations passed down stories of knowledge and wisdom harnessing human's ability to maintain fables of values pillar to our social existence.
  17. It is through the transference from this process of efficiency over social social conductivity that the transition from humankind vs. machine-kind can become a competitive climate where such technological bio-integration becomes at odds to natural humans. This is comparable to the Giants with humans and life at competitive odds as well when it came to the scarcity of resources that the Giants had consumed. Artificial implants that replace a function of our brains long left dormant due to non-use is allegorical to the Borg popularized by Star Trek: The Next Generation. With this form of competitive industry, the value of working subverts the value of creativity through social conductivity inclines humankind to economic slavery. Civilians simply do not have the mental energy to self-think as a result of becoming over worked with insufficient time to reflect, think or play.
  19. The process of adapting and prioritizing efficiency over love can deprive human civilization of social conductivity. Without the social conductivity of humankind, the central divine driving force to life, the connection to insight and access to YHWH's light and His will through Jesus Christ can be forsaken.  As a result the pillar of meaningful existence becomes deprived in favor to benefit those that enslave us like machines. Social conductivity and love will no longer be the pillar of humankind's future existence if humans allow such self-re-engineered-creations against YHWH's creation in His image. The destination of such direction becomes analogous to the Giants in never reaching a state of rest and contentment, in balance with and respect for the resources they had consumed. Noah was informed to hide during the futile destruction of Earth and was then saved to help repopulate YHWH creations. And as a curse if you will, humans now age and of which fate of death depends on that aging process, not to surpass a median of a 120 years.
  21. If humans are to approach helpful social constructs to future generations humans must emphasize the social conductivity of love as being central to meaningful living.
  23. YHWH gave us the gift through love to create and a mind to travel our thoughts as well as time and space through our inner insight. To re-create  in replacement of those gifts of heart and mind, left dormant and unacknowledged in humankind will become our demise only to benefit those who wish to enslave for their own sake.
  25. So with "the shortest distance between two points is no fun," the focus on the value in the journey of our social relationships will lend to contentment. Upon our death will we be meaningful among the still living. To have fun is the result of social conductivity when valued over efficiency and intelligence. Social conductivity results in an innocence where love, creativity and laughter can flourish.
  27. Technology can be a wonderful tool in our social conductivity so long as we do not allow ourselves to become tool to it.
  29. We can receive forgiveness in YHWH through Jesus Christ as well as His intention that we walk the walk, as Jesus would. We can become examples of Jesus simply by walking the walk and through that work of light we inspire others to do the same. We can embody the love of Jesus Christ as a collective.
  31. In closing:
  32. It is [YHWH] who made the Earth and created mankind on it. [YHWH] hands stretched out the heavens; [YHWH] marshaled their starry hosts.
  34.     -- Isaiah 45:12
  37. Two Bible Readings:
  39. Hebrew Bible: Genesis 6:1-8
  41. When humankind began to grow in numbers and to spread over the earth, and women became more plentiful, divine beings* saw how beautiful the human women were, and chose women to marry with, whomever they chose. YHWH said, “I will not allow my spirit to dwell within humankind for such long periods, because they are only flesh. From now on, they will not live more than 120 years.”
  43. 5
  44. The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and afterward as well, when divine beings had intercourse with mortal women, who bore children by them. These were the Gibborim of old, individuals of great renown. YHWH saw the great wickedness of the people of the earth, that the thoughts in their hearts fashioned nothing but evil. YHWH was sorry that humankind had been created on earth; it pained God’s heart. YHWH said, “I will wipe this human race that I have created from the face of the earth—not only the humans, but also the animals, the reptiles, and the birds of the heavens. I am sorry I ever made them.”
  46. But Noah found favor in the eyes of YHWH.
  49. Extra Canonical: 1 Enoch 7:1-6; 10:1-2 {explain}
  51. And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms 2 and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones. Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel to the son of Lamech, and said to him: 'Go to Noah and tell him in my name "Hide thyself!" and reveal to him the end that is approaching: that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come upon the whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it.
