imagination-4One of the many trends that we can see increasingly being referenced is that of Imagineering. Combining imagination with engineering. But it’s not new. Old thinkers already new for a long time that by using the power of imagination, they could think up a whole, new future world. One of these thinkers was Buckminster Fuller. He had this awesome idea about the organization of labour:

We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”

And Nassim Haramein connected Buckminster’s ideas of abundance with the way natural systems organize themselves:

“Buckminster Fuller calculated in his sixties, that if we split the wealth equally for all people on earth, I can’t remember how many millions everybody would have! There is abundance! And there is absolutely no reason for one single child to die from hunger. It’s just a question of organizing our society in collaboration. Realizing that we are all one, that we are all in the same boat. And if we don’t care of each other, we just not gonna make it! Because natural systems are in harmony with each other, they are not in competition.”

Add to that, if we could develop a societal system where an equal division of resources (food, water, homes, healthcare, education, money, …) would take place, there would be less need to compete for these resources in “full-time” jobs spending the majority competing or overly specializing and the minority performing real valuable labour that is beneficial to all. The remainder of the hours available per week we could then better use to take care of each other and enjoy life, the way it was orginally meant to be.

So there are some very good thinkers out there, and they have (at least a partial) solution to some of world’s major problem areas. How could we get these thoughts into manifestations? It’s actually very simple. Because thoughts combined with consciousness are as real as matter, they have the power to create something else. Especially if these thoughts are shared by more people. But we must get away with the notion that we only want “real” things instead of “Imaginary” thoughts. Because imagination is a very real capability! Good luck with your personal Imagineering towards a Better World.
