New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought: We all must stop being selfish, shortsighted, and stupid if we want a surviving and thriving future for all. If we want to avoid early extinction for humans and other creatures and greater damage to Earth.
The current human path is to early extinction for humans and other creatures and greater damage to Earth. But the thriving path still exists, barely, to build a thriving future for all if and only if we act now.
We have a choice to make. Wise choice is a surviving and thriving future for all. Thrive! is a way to change our behavior and change our future to a much better surviving and thriving future. Thrive! is all of us together, a vast human endeavor, building a thriving future for all.

New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought: Humans and many other creatures need oxygen (clean air) to survive and thrive. We must ensure breathable air for all. If not, we will soon be gasping for what little breathable air remains. It is up to all of us to change our future. Only then will we and many other creatures survive and hopefully thrive. [hopeful message with bright cloud]

Humans and many other creatures need oxygen (clean air) to survive and thrive. Unless we change our future, we will be gasping for air. And then there will be no breathable air. Then we and many other creatures will be no more. Early extinction by our actions and inactions. [warning message if “cloud” would have been dark]

Sculpture: breathe, 3' x 3' metal and wood stabile

absolute spirit 

New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought: Care for the Earth we have as it is a false promise that there can be another Earth. No other planet close enough. Only select few would make it even if there was one. Not enough time to create ship capable of moving mass numbers of people. But most importantly, the human species doesn’t deserve another Earth after destroying our Earth. Instead embrace, nurture and preserve our Earth we have. Thriving future, but only on our Earth.

false promise of another Earth 

New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought: Existential threats to Earth and all its inhabitants are posed by creatures as diverse as humans and as viruses and bacteria. COVID-19 is just one of them. Each of these is a major but not insurmountable challenge to the future of Earth and all its inhabitants. Our choice, the humans’ choice, is to cause an endangered future (our current path) or ensure a thriving future for all (much better path).

Sculpture: existential threat, 3′ x 3′, metal mobile.

existential threat 

New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought: Facing a global threat, the world failed to join together against a virus that will destroy as much human life as we let it. That, in and by itself, is global failure. One that continues. The world’s countries behaved as countries, not a global community. The virus behaves as a global virus.

Much worse than this virus, total global failure is already well on its way to being here. Driven by selfishness and shortsightedness, countries are behaving as countries and not even doing that well. The likely result. Total global failure – early extinction of humans and many other creatures and great damage to Earth.

Unless we change now.

Xtinct - universal justice 

New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought:  humans, the undeserving species so selfish and shortsighted, deserve not Earth or any world. The undeserving species. The disappointing species. As a species, we humans have proven ourselves undeserving of Earth or any other world. The future portends our continuing to be undeserving until we extinct Earth and all its creatures. Unless we change and build and sustain a thriving future.

Sculpture: importance of being “it”, 2′ x 3′ metal mobile

New Thrive! Thought & Sculpture

Thought: Since beginning of the universe, we have observed many worlds. Many have thrived throughout their existence. Many continue to thrive. Some fail to thrive. This is the story of one that failed. One that failed by its own actions. This is the story of the human species. This is the story of Earth. This is the failure to thrive. This is extinction.

Our future is foretold and we are forewarned. We will only have ourselves to blame if we do not change and do not build a surviving and thriving future for all. But then we finally understood and changed. Together we built a new future when we all thrive forever on Earth.
