What Would Cause Human Behavior To Change To Save Future?

Bottom Line: Unless global and immediate positive change in human behavior, highly unlikely that human behavior will change sufficient or soon enough to ensure a surviving and thriving future for humans, other creatures and Earth. www.EndangeredFuture.org www.Thrivism.world

  • To generate type, magnitude/amount and direction of human behavior sufficient to ensure survival and possibly achieve thriving, there would need to be a global catastrophe (or the intensely felt threat of one) of enormous magnitude such that it would ensure sufficient positive human behavior. But it can’t be so enormous as to prevent sufficient positive human behavior, that is, not so enormous that it effectively disables the human species or effectively kills the human species.
  • Catastrophes of that size might be global nuclear war, global conventional war (e.g. WWII), untreatable bacteria or virus, large asteroid, or global warming or cooling in less than a decade.
  • Even with a global catastrophe, humans are more likely to address that single issue and then revert as much as they can to previous behavior. Consider human behavior after previous world wars (e.g. WWI, WWII) and worldwide disease outbreaks (e.g. bubonic plague, HIV, flu, cholera).
  • Not clear what would be human behavior after large asteroid impact or major invasion by non-earth intelligent life. Both have often been subject of science fiction speculation.

What can we do so that all will survive and thrive?

What can we do so that all will survive and thrive?

If we stop selfishness and shortsightedness now, the natural human force (the need to survive and the desire to thrive) will fully and positively engage to cause all to survive and thrive forever.

We stop selfishness and shortsightedness when and if and only if:

  • we care enough about self, everyone, everything else and Earth and
  • we care enough about today and both near- and long-term future.

If we do, all (people, all other creatures and Earth) will survive and thrive long-term.

Thrivism as path, positive belief system, and positive way of life for a person and people addresses four key elements

Thrivism as a path, a positive belief system, and a positive way of life for a person and people for today and the future, addresses four key elements:

  • Our nature, as person and people, is our need to survive and desire to thrive in the current world and a thriving future world.
  • Our relationship with other persons and the surrounding world is driven and governed by our need to survive and desire to thrive in current world and thriving future world.
  • Our knowledge of our selves and the world comes from 1) inputs resulting from striving to survive and thrive and 2) the mind processing inputs to achieve greater knowledge.
  • Our actions are driven by our need to survive and desire to thrive but influenced by 1) other persons and surrounding world and 2) our need and desire for a long term, thriving future.

Our having a Thriving Health System for our community ensures we are healthier and potentially thriving people in a healthier and potentially thriving community.

New Thrive! Park [Nelson, WI] – Open for Public Hiking/Walking

New Thrive! Park [Nelson, WI] – Open for Public Hiking/Walking

Thrive! Park is a new public park of the Village of Nelson and was donated by Gary “Chris” Christopherson.

The Park is unique in that it consists of over 25 acres of Mississippi River bluff top and bluff side. The primary bluff is Three Sisters (northernmost Sister is private land) and Lost Brother. The three southernmost bluff tops (two of the Sisters and Lost Brother) are in the Park and accessible via hiking roads and trails.

On the bluff tops and bluff sides are “goat prairies” that have recently been cleared as part of a larger prairie restoration effort around Nelson. The prairie restoration removes invasive and non-prairie plants and releases prairie plants to flourish in their native habitat.

As shown on map [See Park map below], the Park consists of hiking roads (marked in red going along bluffside and back through valley). Also, there are several hiking trails (marked in green) that go to restored bluff and prairie areas and can be accessed off the main hiking roads. Signage in the Park serves as guides to roads and trails.

No hunting or trapping is allowed since this is a park and wildlife safety area.

Thrive! Park is located east of Highway 35 in Nelson (WI). Take Cleveland Street toward bluffs. As you enter woods, turn left on Christopherson Road. Just after turn, there is a parking lot on right to park. Park entrance and road/trail markings are just left of parking lot.Thrive Park 080116
