  • quick link and navigation to LETTERS while this is a busy activity. --Michael 11:50, 28 August 2011 (UTC). done --Sysop 12:39, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

--Anybody 09:12, 25 July 2010 (UTC) This is way too long. Let's try to have the main page much shorter and move a lot of contents to secondary pages:

What if knowledge could be passed on for as long as life existed?


What if civilization continued?
Continued on this planet indefinitely - as long as life is possible - as long as the sun shines. Civilization that lasts. Assume it does, no matter what it looks like.

We all hope that our children enjoy a good life. And their children, too...

Our civilizations have achieved amazing feats: close to 7 billion humans on this planet, on average living more peaceful, longer and easier lives than any generation before us.

Imagine that civilization in some form or other will continue on this planet for as long as the sun shines.

If you're looking to do something else, you could check out initiatives listed here or actions discussed here.

In the long run we are all dead, as was famously observed by John Maynard Keynes. Life, however, should be possible on earth for several billions of years. While self aware beings are alive, it should be possible to pass on knowledge for the benefit of those alive and their descendants. To let civilization continue warrants a sincere effort, everything within our control. We might be standing in a line that continues for millions of generations with individuals who realize life is wonderful. There is no necessity that ensures this happens, so it is worth thinking about what it would require to try to bring it about. Please join the effort.

Life is wonderful.

Please change

  • Is it assured that human civilizations of some form or other continue on this planet indefinitely?


  • Imagine that civilization in some form or other continued on this planet for as long as the sun shines!

That would be a more positive entry and imediately focus on the assumption rather than question the possibility. --Anybody 21:14, 1 January 2010 (UTC) Done.--Sysop 22:52, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
