Why Prayers, Meditations, Wishes, and Any
Such Don't Help to Establish a Lasting Peace in the
It is a safe assumption that ever since
humans started experiencing the horrors of warfare, they also
started to wish to live in peace that would not end with a war
Humans in great numbers have been wishing, praying, meditating
for peace since time immemorial, but, so far, with no lasting
results. Why should this be so?
The answer might be that the very reason that wars always come
back is precisely because we do want to live in
peace!--we don't experience a lasting peace, because our ideas of
what peace should be differ from each other so greatly, that we
go to war to settle our differences again and over again.
A lasting world peace is possible, of course--it is
within human capabilities to effect this--but since our ideas of
what such a peace should look like are so diverse, we have to
learn how to resolve our differences peacefully, instead of
ultimately choosing war every time we feel the desire for
This is what I feel should be done:
All of us who pray, meditate, wish, and etc., for a lasting peace
in the world have to get together one way or another, and come up
with one unified design of a world we would like to live
in. A design in which it would be possible to see how we all are
to live together in one world in as small detail as possible.
Differences that normally would get resolved in real life with
often damaging results would be resolved harmlessly in a model
during the process of hammering out of a design in which all of
us would find an optimal place in.
