This is the 3 page of part four in my series of articles on Zeitgeist: Addendum. Please refer to the introduction if you were lead to this page.

[Jacque Fresco]
You don't see the plug connected to the environment, so it looks like we're free, wandering around. Take the oxygen away, we all die immediately; take planet life away, we die, and without the sun, all the plants die. So we are connected.

One can't really argue with that.

We really must take into account, the totality. This isn't just a human experience on this planet, this is a total experience and we know we can't survive without plants and animals; we know we can't survive without the four elements, you know. And so, when are we really going to start taking that into account. That's what it is to be successful. Success depends on how well we relate to everything around us. 

I am very aware of the fact that my grandson cannot possibly hope to inherit a sustainable, peaceful, stable, socially just world, unless every child today growing up in Ethiopia; in Indonesia, in Bolivia; in Palestine and Israel... also has that same expectation. 

You gotta take care of the whole community, or you are going to have serious problems. And now we have to see that the whole world is the community. And we must all take care of each other that way, and it's not just a community of humans beings, it's a community of plant and animals and elements, and we really need to understand that. That's what's going to bring us joy, too, and pleasure. That's what's missing our lives right now. We can call it spirituality, but the fact of the matter is, joy comes from that bliss of connectness.

Keep this in mind for later on when the film talks about some suggestions for you,

That's our God spirit, that's that side of ourselves that really feels it. You can feel it deep inside you, it is this amazing wonderful feeling and you know it when you get it. You don't get it from money. You get it from connection.

[Bill Hicks]
Now if that isn't a hazard to this country. How are we gonna keep building nuclear weapons, you know what I mean? What's going to happen to the arms industry, when we realize we are all one? It's gonna fuck up the economy! The economy that's fake anyway! Which would be a real bummer, you can see why the government is cracking down, on the idea of experiencing unconditional love.

I think I could go through the rest of my life without having to listen to or read another Bill Hicks quote and die a happy man.

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.
Martin Luther King Jr.

This quote is from his Nobel Peace Prize speech in 1964[2].

Once we understand that the integrity of our personal existences are completely dependent on the integrity of everything else in our world, we have truly understood the meaning of unconditional love. For love is extensionality, and seeing everything as you and you as everything, can have no conditionalities. For, in fact, we are all everything at once.

[George Carlin]
If it's true that we are all from the center of a star, every atom in each of us from the center of a star, then we're all the same thing. Even a coke machine or a cigarette butt in the street in Buffalo, is made out of atoms that came from a star. They've all recycled thousands of times, as have you and I. And therefore, it's only me out there, so what is there to be afraid of? What is there that needs solace seeking? Nothing. There is nothing to be afraid of because it's all us. The trouble is we have been separated by being born and given a name and an identity and being individuated. We have been separated from the oneness and that's what religion exploits, that people have this yearning to be part of the overall one again. So they exploit that. They call it god and they say he has rules and I think that's cruel. I think you can do it absent religion.

It's true, we really are just "children of the stars" so to speak, even though that sounds like something originating from the 1960s, scientifically it's true.

"An extraterrestrial visitor examining the differences among human societies would find those differences trivial compared to the similarities. 

Our lives, our past and our future are tied to the sun, the moon and the stars...We humans have seen the atoms which constitute all of nature and the forces that sculpted this work...and we, who embody the local eyes and ears and thoughts and feelings of the cosmos, have begun to wonder about our stuff contemplating the stars, organized collections of ten billion billion billion atoms, contemplating the evolution of nature, tracing that long path by which it arrived at consciousness here on the planet earth...Our loyalties are to the species and the to the planet. Our obligation to survive and flourish is owed now just to ourselves but also to that cosmos ancient and vast from which we spring. We are one species. We are star stuff harvesting star light.

Carl Sagan

This is from the final episode from the final episode of Cosmos, or it could be from the book of the same name[3].
