The Future In Our Hands

The Future
Have you ever heard about the end of the world (doomsday)? Let me share the list of human predictions against these issue. Unfortunately, all predictions are wrong. My friend ever said: "There are many faithful peoples in this world, and their prayer will prevent it". Apart from the matter above, in this opportunity I only want to share a video that attracted my attention. The author only give the initials name as "fwywarrior". Click "The Future Of Our World" to play.

This post also inspired by the global issue that we are facing now, such as global warming (climate change), ozone layer depletion (or ozone hole), several animals that was extinct, new disease that appear in human life in this century. Many scientists spend their time in effort to fight climate change. At least we also think to our own grandchildren. What can we do to help prevent Climate Change? Personally many things that we can do to appreciate the scientists effort. If you care about it, click here.

Welcoming Christmas and Old & New 2008-2009, let us muse the future. Whether this earth has old enough to support our life?

  1. human can make the world a better place to live, yet human can also have a power and ability to destroy it

    I believe in simple steps that everyone can contribute to save the environment such as save the energy and water, minimize the use of plastics material, reduce the household chemical, and drive less. just like the old saying: big changes start with small steps

    oya mas tikno, I noticed that you like to use the word 'muse'. does it mean to contemplate?

    have a fab weekend:)

  2. We don't know how and when. Nobody does. But one thing we should be sure of, if we are ready if it happen anytime... Think about it.

  3. That's right. Talk about doomsday, make our vision to the future is become bleak. Better prepare us all well. Becauce, the future is in our own hand

  4. I still feel optimistic about our future. I believe there are many more people wanting to do what's best for the earth and its inhabitants than those who would do harm.

  6. I believe all of the prophecies will come to pass that is because of the wickedness of the people but no one could tell when is that great and dreadful day gonna come but we can see the signs and I agree to what you say, that God will protect those who are faithful. That's why we are urge to prepare ourselves both spiritually and temporally.

  8. Dear Ernita, you captured my mind exactly with your first sentence. And yes..., contemplate the future of our world for welcoming Christmas and new year. Just a little post for sharing.
    ---------------------------
    Dear Grace, I'm sure nobody know, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son. But one thing is sure, if we do not love this earth, then the day will come more quickly. Do not buy a refrigerator (or any cooler) that uses chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) is one of the small things we can do.
    ---------------------------
    Dear Anthony Harman, preparation from religion side is good, but we must also act although with a small things.
    ---------------------------
    Dear Melinda, even the UN has act with UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and many governments had ratified the Kyoto Protocol. But all does not mean if no support from each of us.
    Congratulations! You have been accepted at Harvard University.
    ----------------------------
    Dear Irtiza104, I respect your choices.
    ----------------------------
    Dear White Shadow, I agree with you, we ought to prepare ourselves both spiritually and temporally.
    Planting trees around the house yard, also a small effort that give big contribution.

    Dear Lyla, thanks for welcoming here.

  9. The one to blame is Human ...
    pollution is the cause.

  10. dear Tikno,
    actually I am agree with the opinion that the future in our hands.
    did you believe that today our world become much easier by the progress of technology and human capability. But beside that we get the consequence of it all. We can see that today (for example) water which is abundant is being rare because of human creation by private this. many of people died because lack of water. another example is the development of nuclear. nuclear is a danger and become one power of the state. and the power of nuclear can destroy a quarter of the world. can you imagine that? or maybe you can see the progrees of our climate.
    here, I means that the doomsday or the destroy of the world of depend on the human, beside the God who decided. And I believe that people is a the one who make the future of universe and earth.
    So, I want to ask of our awareness about it and love our earth and protect it.
    good posting

  15. I still believe that someday there will be a doomsday that we can't avoid ...
    Everything in this universe always have a starting point (please be noted: the big bang theory...) and an ending point...which we called a doomsday...(almost all of the hollybooks said so) So, don't worry ...it's not a big deal...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dear Nakatsu Senpai, I agree with you.
    ---------------------------

    Dear Niar, if many people died because of lack of water, then their government must be responsible. Talking about nuclear weapon, it depend on how human to use it. It's Ok for medical purpose. But the MOST DANGER is, if nuclear be used for gaining the dignity of a nation.
    Good comment!
    --------------------------

    Dear Yopan Prihadi, although we don't know when... but one thing that we know is human has the ability to prepare the prevention, so it not come soon.
    ---------------------------

    Dear Kat, an interesting thought!
    Thank you.
    ---------------------------

    Dear Robin, thank you!

    Dear Djoko Wahjuadi, for me it's a big deal! Such as cancer that will kill slowly, if just being let.

  24. Thanks for the comment on my blog about Adi Da, and yes, prayer will prevent this!
    So will action and love, and compassion.

    I think the 2012 myth has got a bit out of hand, and it's not as bad as all that. I think that if we start now, so much can be prevented, but we have to take responsibility, as well as pray.

  25. Benar mas Tikno, rusaknya alam adalah karena tangan tangan manusia. Bagaimana kedepannya, sangat bergantung tindakan apa akan kita lakukan sekarang.

  28. Tikno, your concern is indeed very real and shared by millions all over the world. Almost daily, we get disturbing news about change in climate and the latest is this http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7786910.stm

    I am not very hopeful of my grandchildren living in a nice place.

  29. As always, Tikno has a very good article to share with.
    I can't believe I was too busy with my blog and miss your great article.
    I am 100% agree with you that the future is in our hands! But I would give another 10% that GOD holds our future.
    No one could say when the end of the world but GOD Himself.

    And..., your last sentence strengthen my concern, or perhaps to my visitors here.
    -----------------------------------
    Dear Aldhis, I agree that God also holds our future, but I also afraid that God will NOT do that if we do nothing.

  31. Dear Tikno, Am i late? Well,It's better to late than never right? We need to prepare ourselves because it will happen someday. But when? We don't know. "If ye shall prepare, ye shall not fear". I absolutely agree with Ernita D. Humans are the most dangerous and destructive. None of the creatures named are destroying the planet but us. We are the only species that kills it’s own sphere. We kill people, kill the animal, environment, destroying the earth----our own home. Without the earth we're are we going to live?

  34. Tikno I found your post as well as the movie very interesting.

    I think our time would be better served living this day. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.

    We can conserve where it is possible. Love our neighbor while keeping our family our first priority. Live a life that is ethical beyond description. And, be grateful for all that we have and will achieve.

    These are things that bring positive energy to our world. This is an interesting and exciting time to live. We should live it with a purpose of good.

    Another very good post.

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:













And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.
Note: This work was originally from The Illustrated Guide to a Ph.D. by Matt Might.

The inner voices when I am get old

One day in January 2010, I visited my grandfather (father of my mother) and my grandmother (grandmother of my wife). I could feel how happy they are with my presence, as well as myself. I can see despite their spirit remains alive but I can not deny that their physical abilities has decreased naturally. So I start to think how if I'm getting old like them. While thinking of it, suddenly my mind remembered a touching story that was discovered by my family, Yenny Ang. Whatever I had felt and imagined, I pour it into this post. Hopefully your love to the elderly and your parents will be more.

When I'm get old.

When I spilled vegetable's gravy on my clothes,
when I no longer remember how to tie a tie,
when I no longer remember how to tie shoelaces,
remember the time how I teach and guide you to do that.

While I am senile and constantly repeating the word that bores you,
please be patient to listen to me, do not interrupt me.

VETO VS DEMOCRACY

In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

VETO
According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…
