This is a song by Enigma which looks as good as it sounds as the entire video is a rewind and it has been one of my favorite songs for a very long time. Everytime I come across an article which advises us to eat complex carbohydrates (whole whear bread, brown rice etc), do yoga and meditation and studies about alternate fuel and electricity sources, I am reminded of this song.
The industrial revolution has depleted the Earth of its natural resources and the 'good life' along with the pollution generated by industrialization has depleted our health. The oil they say will last us only for 20 more years, the levels of oceans all around have risen by a few inches in the last 20 years, the ozone layer has depleted considerably, ground water contamination due to toxic land fills and use of fertilizers leads to chemical filled fruits and vegetables and unsafe drinking water. The use and throw culture leads to tonnes of garbase, paper is shredded, torn and wasted without a thought for the trees that were cut down to make them, forests are decreasing, plants and animals are becoming extinct and greenery in urban areas is compromised.
We are a race who are living for the moment without a thought for tomorrow. We have a new gadget for personal use every few months and upgrades to existing ones every few days. With so many brilliant minds around, is it that difficult to make cars run on water and generate sustainable amounts electricity from wind and the Sun or bring nuclear fusion out of the laboratory into day to day needs?
Eventually the dynamics will force us to rewind and relearn a better way of progress, in the meanwhile we can try reuse, recycle and find simpler ways of living which are not environmentally costly.
