Interior Design

I learn nowadays posts, articles, learn books about historical past and watched documentaries, to grasp why that is taking place. However greater than that, I wished to determine what classes now we have to study. Within the historical past of mankind any international occasion, particularly in relation to pandemics, has modified our society and compelled us to undertake a brand new lifestyle. Folks, in response to historic data, regardless of the data and data that they’ve acquired for hundreds of years, have proved lazy, don’t need to study, however someway this Universe forces them to hear and study via struggling. And I'm not saying it, however smarter individuals like myself, like thinker Umberto Eco>, thinker Sir Roger Scruton>, Canadian psychologist Jordan B. Peterson>, historian Yuval Noah Harari>, historian and monetary analyst Jacques Attali>, however many scientists you discover on the TED platform>, which for me are scientific, documented and dependable sources, which additionally talk on-line, along with the profitable works they’ve written and printed. The issue is that individuals, after they attain a serious crossroads in society, have to decide on. TO CHOOSE! Right here is the free will. So, what can we select to study and perceive from the coronavirus pandemic? What can we select for the longer term?

The most trusted source for the pandemic can be accessed directly on the World Health Organization website. See here www.who.int and see the special coronavirus link www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019>

Essentially the most dependable supply for the COVID-19 pandemic you’ll be able to entry it immediately on the World Well being Group's web site. See right here the web site www.who.int> and right here the particular hyperlink to Coronavirus www.who.int/emergencies/ailments/novel-coronavirus-2019>

Why do viruses appear? Scientists have answered this question since 2012, when a scientific analysis was made in which the researchers drew attention to the fact that nature regulates your own animal and human populations. In short, when a population reaches a critical threshold, viruses appear, precisely because animals and humans occupy each other's territories. >

Why do viruses seem? Scientists have answered this query since 2012, when a scientific evaluation was carried out through which the researchers drew consideration to the truth that nature regulates its personal animal and human populations. In brief, when a inhabitants reaches a vital threshold, viruses seem, exactly as a result of animals and people occupy one another's territories. The planet can solely assist a sure variety of populations. I came upon all this from a put up by Adrian Voinescu>, the daddy of a most cancers affected person (now cured, see video beneath), who sought to grasp why such ailments seem. He has come to find many extra, however due to the data he distributes, I’ve come to hunt scientific sources. Look, I discovered them HERE on the US authorities web site devoted to medical work>, and the complete article in The Lancet>, one of the vital prestigious scientific publishers, which publishes analysis papers in all medical fields.

I’m a person who, past skilled considerations, I attempt to see different substrates of occasions. I attempt to see the entire image, placing collectively the data, in probably the most logical and rational manner attainable. My standpoint is among the attainable methods through which the entire scenario generated by this virus might be perceived, however I really feel obliged to speak it as a result of we will handle to study collectively, to assist one another, in order that ultimately, to make the very best decisions for all of us. And I take it methodically, on factors. It is advisable to take the time to learn the hyperlinks to articles and watch the movies we posted right here, in reference to every discovering I made.

1. That our lifestyle is totally flawed. That is apparent, provided that we take a look at how polluted are all of the locations in our nation, I don’t say the remainder of the planet. That's what he's speaking about selfishness, in regards to the irresponsible exploitation of assets. The whole lot only for what? For revenue. We produce rather a lot, we devour rather a lot, at a quick tempo, however with restricted assets. You may't lower down forests ceaselessly, you’ll be able to't slice all of the mountains for marble, limestone, granite, you’ll be able to't use all of the gravel of the rivers for concrete, you’ll be able to't make infinite pottery from planet earth. Not within the present rhythm! We’ve been consuming for many years what the planet has produced for hundreds of thousands of years. It is sensible for local weather issues to happen, proper?

2. It isn’t in any respect regular for the worth of our properties to be so excessive, and the supplies used for them don’t final a lifetime and aren’t sustainable. How is it attainable that solely two generations in the past, easy individuals would have allowed themselves to make a dwelling with out being indebted for all times? Why did we get into the insanity of credit score, but additionally the insanity of consumerism? Why do now we have to get our properties fully restored after ten years? Why can't we do our homework as soon as and for all ceaselessly and maintain it fixed, with much less money and time? We admire the outdated buildings, erected 100, 200 years in the past and we see that the supplies from which they have been raised have been extra sustainable, pure, but additionally resistant and pleasant to our well being, in comparison with what now we have now. It’s true that they have been constructing them extra slowly, extra methodically, this was not a loopy rush. However for the frenzy, for the fast consolation, we pay a really excessive value: loans for tens of years and housing from supplies that may be assembled shortly, however for which we nonetheless would not have a historical past concerning the impression on our well being (see the isolation and tremendous insulation of homes, but additionally issues attributable to grease and mildew). Why don't we use all our collected data to construct sustainable properties, in accordance with nature, however through which we will have a shiny and wholesome dwelling? Why not implement bioarchitecture? Why can we proceed with the identical supplies and techniques that price? For revenue. Doing one thing sustainable means much less consumption, which corporations don’t want. They merely have no idea one other approach to function. We will press him to decide on the fitting manner for everybody by the requests we make, by the supplies and merchandise we select to purchase.

3. City agglomerations are unfavorable to a wholesome way of life. Right here the air pollution attributable to site visitors, city hygiene issues (see issues with rubbish pits, sewers), well being issues manifested by allergic reactions, lung ailments, stress, and so forth. Within the historical past of mankind, you’ll be able to see how the utopia of the cities disappeared from the plague pandemics. Folks gave up dwelling in confined partitions and populated the areas round them. As well as, even immediately scientists don’t clarify the disappearance of civilizations, which left behind settlements with fabulous constructions, beginning with the Egyptians and ending with new cities found within the Amazon jungle. However sure, I do think about the probability {that a} pandemic would have triggered these individuals to go away what that they had constructed as a busy city settlement. What could be the answer? Let's construct considerate settlements in relation to the surroundings and with respect for the well being of all. Urbanists ought to be allowed to give you their sustainable concepts, scientists hearken to as a result of they’ve options and arguments. Downside? Politicians and native authorities, who will not be capable to take breaks, shortly generate income from commissions for authorizations given no accountability to anybody and nothing. If all goes effectively, there's no room for corruption, proper?

You have got subtitles in Romanian to search out out in regards to the concepts of the architect Neri Oxman> who proposes Bio-Structure, as a sustainable different to the supplies used immediately, supplies that pollute the planet and injury our well being.

4. Superior know-how has not made us higher individuals. It is extremely unusual how we as people immediately have superior applied sciences, however the human high quality from an moral, ethical, religious standpoint has not superior. Why? As a result of it’s in regards to the decisions we make, our lack of involvement in society and the flawed leaders we select to comply with. The know-how itself, its advance might be good, it could possibly assist us, however it’s inside our energy to decide on how we use it. For instance, the Web might be in comparison with a easy device, a knife. It’s in your selection how you utilize it: you should utilize it to chop slices of bread to share with others, however as effectively you’ll be able to stab different individuals. So? As an alternative of utilizing know-how to turn into higher individuals, most of us select to remain mediocre or to take care of the unhealthy issues behind a keyboard. How can we use our cell telephones? To propagate selfishness. Photos with us, with us and once more with us. Why don't we unfold info, data, why don't we select these applied sciences to turn into extra knowledgeable, extra conscious, extra spiritually advanced, higher? As a result of we're lazy and smug. As an alternative of studying, educating, trying to find related info to study extra about ourselves, about our objective, about how we might be helpful to society and the world, we focus solely on materials issues, on portions of objects, on cash, on competitors, on revenue, on the so-called social state. Being virtually monkeys, we don’t take some time to teach ourselves and turn into consciously gifted individuals, however we select to proceed to be monkeys, however with cellphones, laptops, home equipment, automobiles, robots. However we will change. We will select appropriately. We will do that, ranging from considerations for our well being.

He speaks of the significance of consciousness as a actuality that all of us share, and researchers in numerous fields, particularly these in quantum physics, understand that such statements go hand in hand with their observations. See right here at www.consciousfrontier.org.>

5. Our time has turn into shorter, populated by actions that take us away from households, schooling and data. It appears unbelievable to me how skilled life has turn into to occupy our time on the expense of household life. Why do now we have so many applied sciences that promise us that it’s going to shorten our time for routine actions, homework, however we nonetheless don’t have any time for household, pals, to admire the fabulous planet we reside on? As a result of we wish a lot in an especially quick time. We wish every little thing: automobiles, homes, objects, firm garments, journey, unique meals, financial institution accounts. The worth for them: quite a lot of work for extra money. Cash we don't even get to take pleasure in. Life passes by us and by the objects we purchase after a tiring job. What are we working for? For objects? Then there are international locations like ours, the place the time can also be stolen by the authorities. For instance, to pay taxes, to get authorizations, you stroll round with paperwork, as an alternative of creating the entire course of simpler so that you can examine on-line anyway. Time is the one useful resource that nobody, completely nobody may give us again. Please assume severely about this and the way you need to spend this time on this life.

After re-thinking his whole life in relation to space and things, he concluded that not being concerned about them, he has more time for life, for friends, walks in nature, reading, education, spirituality.>

Having re-thought his life in relation to house and issues, he concluded, amongst different issues, that he was not involved about them, he had extra time for all times, for pals, walks in nature, studying, schooling, spirituality.

6. Why does schooling, analysis and well being price a lot within the age of the Web? The well being, analysis and academic establishments have been compelled, within the absence of presidency funding, to come back to mimic the mannequin of the businesses that got down to make a revenue. Abruptly the standard turned much less related in comparison with the amount. Hospitals, universities, analysis facilities are in a steady race to draw as many purchasers as attainable non-public funds. Why? As a result of the states of the world are not concerned with supporting their residents to be wholesome and educated. Nonetheless, though they allocate some budgets for schooling, analysis and well being, they’ve invented bureaucratic techniques via which cash doesn’t get the place it must be, however is siphoned off by politicians. Usually, any authorities ought to assist well being techniques, universities, analysis facilities and cultural establishments, assist them with constant funding, in order that residents are wholesome and educated, so we will progress as a society. It’s apparent that the present leaders of the world, from all states, would not have this curiosity. They’re trapped within the circle of consumerism, of revenue, of cash, of corruption. They have no idea, they aren’t prepared for one more system. This technique is handy, which works for them. Corruption doesn’t exist solely in our nation, it’s all over the place and it’s widespread exactly as a result of some funds are used for us residents. Within the age of the Web, when information is on-line, what number of of you entry details about funding for schooling and well being? What number of of you, within the age of the Web, are you aware the funds allotted by the individual for schooling and well being? Most of you could have given up occupied with this and select to assist the monetary effort for well being and schooling alone. That’s, you pay privately, even pay the state, though you contribute financially via taxes. Why? As a result of you don’t belief the politicians, the well being system or the schooling system. Why? Since you don't actually belief your self. You realize you didn't get entangled, you didn't vote, you didn't inform. You thought that if we lived within the Web age, somebody would deal with this stuff. Nicely, somebody is betting on our laziness, traditionally ascertained. Within the age of the Web, we should always put strain on our good, that of everybody. We should always establish potential leaders who’re empathetic, those that reply to feedback, emails, those that are concerned and who’ve arguments, initiatives and plans primarily based on analysis, scientific research, tangible proof, not phrases and guarantees. However we won’t discover the empathic leaders, with out us appearing, checking, asking, looking.

7.Why did tradition turn into superficial and mediocre? As a result of true and excessive tradition requires time and monetary assets, as Umberto Eco argued. And right here too, state governments assist tradition too little. Verify the budgets allotted anyplace on the earth for artists, writers, painters, sculptors, theaters, cinematography, pictures and no matter else you need. They’re small in comparison with their GDP. What can tradition creators do in a society longing for extra, sooner, cheaper, with no assist anyplace? Strive consumerism fashions to adapt to society. It's good? NOT! We’d like tradition as a result of it helps us rework from monkeys to acutely aware individuals. Together with schooling, it’s tradition that may raise us morally and spiritually. Sure, there are definitely many who will say that religion is required for the spirit. However so is the church. They’ve come to consider revenue and too little of their religious wants. For hundreds of years, it was the church buildings that propagated and financed even schooling and tradition. Now they’re fully break up and even in competitors. It’s sure that each one have turn into mediocre and superficial as a result of they aren’t supported by governments. Our taxpayers' cash isn’t directed in the direction of making us extra educated, cultured and religious. No, this cash is stolen from us, whereas we’re left at nighttime. We’ve come to imagine that we don't even want tradition, artwork, spirituality. What can we use once we look, can we run out of jobs? Nicely he makes use of us! Tips on how to escape from our worries and troubles if not via artwork, tradition and spirituality? The place can we feed our soul and thoughts? If we don’t feed them, we not marvel about their existence, we don’t marvel about our objective and objective on this world. We merely stay monkeys who work in useless, paying taxes, with out really having fun with a greater life.

A documentary made by the thinker Sir Roger Scruton> for the BBC, a thinker who explains why tradition is vital and particularly the common worth it promotes: the gorgeous.

First: It’s our selection to vary our lifestyle! We’ve the facility of our voices now heard via the Web. We’ve the facility of votes. We’ve the facility to tell, analysis, confirm. We’ve the facility to determine not just for ourselves and our kids, however for all individuals. What can we select? 1. Let's proceed this carousel, which is able to result in precisely the identical impact – a brand new virus or 2. We will select to reside with respect for one another, altruists and within the spirit of the planet, with much less, however higher, having fun with ourselves the time spent on this life, on this fabulous earth, with all individuals. And sure, it’s time to make altruistic situations, to place concepts on paper, to assume severely about how we need to reside any further.

Second: Let's concentrate and belief the researchers, the scientists, the cultural individuals, those who give us actual information and data, concepts argued as a result of they impart on the Web, not simply on TV.. And sure, let's watch out of any drastic measures proposed by any authority as short-term as a result of it could possibly turn into everlasting, because the historian Harari warned. There are occasions once we can supervise and react to the choices of the states of the world, earlier than we enable governments to oversee and direct our reactions as they please. So discover out! Verify the sources cited, ask, ask for clarification. Be people, not monkeys. Traditionally talking, any misfortune has been used to determine new forces of energy. The time has come for the brand new drive to be altruistic – that of accountable individuals, that of widespread sense, that of caring about every little thing and every little thing, primarily based on scientific information, cultural concepts, all documented.

Yuval Noah Harari, wrote the successful books Homo Sapiens, Homo Deuse and 21 lessons for the future. But on his blog he continues to open people's minds and offer them well-documented articles. It is worth reading his article on how the pandemic will affect the future of humanity - HERE. >

Yuval Noah Harari> wrote the profitable books “Homo Sapiens”, “Homo Deus” and “21 classes for the longer term”>. However on his web site www.ynharari.com> he continues to open individuals's minds and supply them well-documented articles, in addition to hyperlinks to tv interviews. It’s value studying the article about his concepts on the impression of the pandemic on the way forward for mankind – SEE HERE>.

Third: Viruses don’t have any borders, so we shouldn't have them both. And I refer particularly to the boundaries of prejudice and altruism. If it burns a forest as distant from us as you realize, it’ll have an effect on us in the end. If there are individuals affected by lack of water and meals, it’ll have an effect on us in the end. If a utopian and evil thought is born out of the country, it’ll have an effect on us in the end. What I need to say? Allow us to remember that each one individuals need to be comfortable and that we will all be, if we assist each other, whatever the geographical and cultural area we come from. And sure, we will use technological advances to propagate the nice, to propagate the scientific fact, the excessive tradition, to assist one another so as to turn into actually extra spiritually advanced. I hope we make the fitting decisions!
