Pondering about multiversus and cons

They say the universe is expanding ever faster.

Just a point of view:
The universe stays same size, we are shrinking ever more rapid.
It is what it is that it is, isn't it?
"Well, it depends on what your definition of "is" is."

THE point of view is non dimensional yet contains all dimension. There is no outside of everything or inside of nothing.

But in spite of all of my trying, a handful of our people, with their lies, have made our life impossible. There’s no way to detach ourself from what’s happened today. Not only are we in a compound situation, not only are there those who have left and committed the betrayal of the century, some have stolen children from others, and are in pursuit right now to kill them, because they stole their children. And we — we are sitting here waiting on a powder keg. I don’t think it is what we want to do with our babies. I don’t think that’s what we had in mind to do with our babies. It is said by the greatest of prophets from time immemorial: “No man may take my life from me; I lay my life down.”

So to — to sit here and wait for the catastrophe that’s going to happen on that airplane — it’s going to be a catastrophe, it almost happened here. Almost happened — The congressman was nearly killed here. But you can’t steal people’s children. You can’t take off with people’s children without expecting a violent reaction. And that’s not so unfamiliar to us either, if we — even if we were Judeo-Christian — if we weren’t Communists. The world– the kingdom suffereth violence and the violent shall take it by force. If we can’t live in peace, then let’s die in peace.

There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms
In this last of meeting places
We grope together

“With nothing much to do, I started compulsively cleaning my house and wondering how bad things could get. There was so much going on—the pandemic, conspiracy theories, propaganda, huge gaps in wealth and income, climate change, unemployment, entitlement, the stock market collapsing, etc etc.—and no way to hold back the flood. The press was failing to keep up. The CDC was a mess. So many institutions were failing.

One day when I was cleaning up around here, I picked up a Popular Science magazine from the 1950s. So that became another theme that converged with the first—the nostalgia some people have for the era when America was "great". There was so much optimism and earnestness then. People would submit ideas to magazines for crackpot inventions that they thought would make them rich. They'd share ideas for making useful things out of scrap materials—which was suddenly not so far-fetched now that everyone was in quarantine and unable to shop.”

Everything is meaningless.”

What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.

Everything is significant. What isn't significant, is people wanting more significance.

seriously.
Stephen Hawking tells the number and Elon Musk is colonizing Mars. I heard Musk wants to die there so it is his first priority to colonize Mars faster than in 100 years.

And in either case, there’s always the politically charged question of: who goes and who stays? Do poor and disadvantaged people get left behind on a hellish world?[/align][/size]

Traveling somewhere always costs money, so I guess poor and disadvantaged people will stay, however, maybe there will be charity programs for them in the future, but the question is "wouldn't it be safer to stay on the Earth?"

Nexum was a debt bondage contract in the early Roman Republic. Within the Roman legal system, it was a form of mancipatio. Though the terms of the contract would vary, essentially a free man pledged himself as a bond slave (nexus) as surety for a loan. He might also hand over his son as collateral. Although the bondsman might be subjected to humiliation and abuse, as a legal citizen he was supposed to be exempt from corporal punishment. Nexum was abolished by the Lex Poetelia Papiria in 326 BC, in part to prevent abuses to the physical integrity of citizens who had fallen into debt bondage.

Roman historians illuminated the abolition of nexum with a traditional story that varied in its particulars; basically, a nexus who was a handsome but upstanding youth suffered sexual harassment by the holder of the debt. In one version, the youth had gone into debt to pay for his father's funeral; in others, he had been handed over by his father. In all versions, he is presented as a model of virtue. Historical or not, the cautionary tale highlighted the incongruities of subjecting one free citizen to another's use, and the legal response was aimed at establishing the citizen's right to liberty (libertas), as distinguished from the slave or social outcast.

Cicero considered the abolition of nexum primarily a political maneuver to appease the common people (plebs): the law was passed during the Conflict of the Orders, when plebeians were struggling to establish their rights in relation to the hereditary privileges of the patricians. Although nexum was abolished as a way to secure a loan, debt bondage might still result after a debtor defaulted.

Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte (Spanish for Our Lady of the Holy Death), often shortened to Santa Muerte, is an idol, female deity or folk saint in Mexican and Mexican-American folk Catholicism. A personification of death, she is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife by her devotees. Despite condemnation by leaders of the Catholic Church, and more recently Evangelical movemements, her cult has become increasingly prominent since the turn of the 21st century.
