Global resource utilization. Hmm, that sounds familiar. In this case, it's human resources all working together globally to achieve a goal, which is helping SETI search the universe for signals from another world. Great use of human power...mind power. Now, it does NOT require a large jump to notice this can also apply to all resources.
I'm telling you, for anyone stuck in the 50's, or even the 70's way of thinking, you're in for a rude awakening, because the majority of my generation and those before us are NOT products of selfishness and close mindedness.
We are children of a world that is more united than divided. We are part of a global community striving to be a universal community. We are part of something bigger than ourselves, and understand our place in the world of sharing ideas, processes and global talents for the betterment of the many, over the betterment of the self.
Our global connection enables a new mindset of collaboration over competition, of benefits to all humanity over asinine divisions among us, of true growth of the human condition over your self-destructive systems and old world ways. All of which will lead us to the stars, to a better home on Earth and to a future worthy of positive contemplation.
Social evolution is coming. Ride the wave or be drowned by it, for there is no sitting on the sidelines hoping it will simply pass.
