The linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model relies on large quantities of easily accessible resources and energy, and as such is increasingly unfit for the reality in which it operates. Working towards efficiency—a reduction of resources and fossil energy consumed per unit of manufacturing output—will not alter the finite nature of their stocks but can only delay the inevitable. A change of the entire operating system seems necessary.
The circular economy principle
A circular economy is one that is restorative by design, and which aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value, at all times.
1 – Circular economy is a global economic model that decouples economic growth and development from the consumption of finite resources;
2 – Distinguishes between and separates technical and biological materials, keeping them at their highest value at all times.
3 – Focuses on effective design and use of materials to optimise their flow and maintain or increase technical and natural resource stocks;
4 – Provides new opportunities for innovation across fields such as product design, service and business models, food, farming, biological feedstocks and products;
5 – Establishes a framework and building blocks for a resilient system able to work in the longer term. Please continue here
Scientists are searching for the missing link between consciousness and matter, without realizing that there is no real missing link or links. It is there. The only missing link is in their minds. Something in them is not yet fused. There is matter in their mind, but not spirit. There is mine, but not yours. There is ours, and not ALL. This is the only missing link.

Sadistic type – This form can also be linked with “teasing” when that teasing has a motivation of humiliation. Can it not be seen in the man who expects the women to be merely a vicarious extension of his reality whose only purpose is to SERVE his needs ? That the women is inferior to him: a second class citizens at best. Is this not a form of dominance and submission ? And why is it that when a women wants to fully actualize herself that she is considered, consciously or unconsciously, as wanting to be “like a man” ? From mans point of view, is this not an example of the castration complex ? And why is it culturally ok in every society for a man to flaunt his sexuality, to brag about his conquests, to talk about women in the ways that they do, but not ok for a women to do exactly the same? Is this not traceable to the original archetype of The Garden of Eden Myth wherein man is now “getting back” at women for the original temptation ?

When a person develops his intellect without spiritual practice what happens is that the person becomes arrogant. When the heart is not ruling the head self-obsession, superiority and detachment from the Universal truth leads to a complete loss of intuition. For a while life of such person can be prosperous but slowly and surely things will start to fall apart. This can happen on physical, emotional, or mental level. However, before something big occurs there are small warnings in whatever form. Illness, arguments, signs of whatever kind, dreams. You have to remember there are no coincidences in life at all. The problem is that without intuition we cannot explain why these things happened to us. It can be for a completely different reason than we think. Our brain/eyes can only perceive the physical world not the invisible one. Invisible world is where things happen first before they translate into a physical world. Such as thoughts, words, intentions, feelings. If these are wrong and not in accordance with Universal laws we are creating disorder. Disorder leads to chaos and chaos leads to death.
