Could humanity maintain the hope that a better life is possible on our planet?
It could - if we bring about an informational and spiritual evolution. One variant of such a path is described in the book Gaiia by Hares Youssef.
You might say, "But it's just a book, a piece of science fiction".
No, it's not. It is an applied philosophy, a project, that can enlighten you and help you to believe in God within yourself. To find a way of evolving. And this project has already been launched. If you're not comfortable with the injustice and cruelty of the world around you, ignore the words above. If your inner voice agrees with my words - join me!
