This project is a labor of love that started out due to the desire to do something meaningful. This was approached from the mass-collaboration line of thinking. People achieve more in numbers and they grow more enlightened with education or access to good information. Together, we can share ideas and strengthen our global well-being by engaging each other with information that enhances our lives and protects the environment.
We believe it’s important to understand why people do what they do in order to address the root causes of our challenges today. You will find great content emphasizing the beauty of this world to inspire you, the challenges to build awareness for change and the solutions available to create positive ripples into the future.
The Blue Dot Post believes there is one constant in this universe and that’s “change”. Today humanity has the ability to help direct that change through the use of science and technology, understanding ourselves as natural human beings and the decisions we make on a daily basis. Astronauts who’ve seen our Blue Dot from space have shared profound comments describing it as a living organism in which we are all connected. The world we are part of is beautiful and magical and should be protected for generations to come. The root causes of our challenges go far beyond laws and policies. Out-dated systems cannot be updated, they must be replaced and if the people of today don’t address them humanity will continue to shovel sand against the tide as they encourage the same thinking that created the problems.
Quotes that inspire The Blue Dot Post:
John Locke – “We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us.”
Einstein – “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
Buckminster Fuller – “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
Carl Sagan – “A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed. We are one planet. One of the great revelations of the age of space exploration is the image of the earth finite and lonely, somehow vulnerable, bearing the entire human species through the oceans of space and time.”
