The passage from childhood to adulthood happens when the child begins to realize that life is hard, death is certain and the chances are pretty good that he or she is going to be struggling for the rest of their life. These harsh realities wash away the idealism, naiveté and illusions of youth. Also this maturation process causes the youth to have a new understanding of what responsibility and stewardship means as well as the desire to make an impact on reality and leave the world a better place. This process occurs as a result of both experience and information. As a youth gathers more information through the experience of life he or she reaches certain inevitable conclusions.

If the Powers That Be do not destroy the freedom on the Internet and poison our environment beyond repair, by 2030 our collective human neuro-system will have matured and developed into a great font of collective wisdom. In that situation, decisions will be made not according to how much money can be made, but how much benefit can be created. The scrapes and bruises of our childhood folly will be repaired as we see the puerile remnants of these false lives and shed them. Nuclear power plants built in areas where tidal waves hit will seem ludicrous to the coming human race. Stockpiling nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, assuming a mutually assured destruction posture and much more of our current experience will seem silly to the people of the future.

It should be noted that through this process there will be much resistance. No one resists with more adamancy than a child. We can expect countless temper tantrums over the next 20 years. With the awakening power of Internet, the shedding of the phantasm, and the rising experience of our true spiritual nature, no one can hide from the truth.

Wise people know the value of spiritual truth, but they also know when someone is lying to them.
