I was visiting Cauble Park’s lake on December 15th of 2018 to play with Nikon Z6. Check out the video I made for this particular day right below. Enjoy!
Is progressing a bad thing or a good thing? Some people out there prefer that we could live like we were in the past because we couldn’t develop as much and so we didn’t pollute the environment. They would argue that living closer to mother nature would naturally be good and be healthy, and anything otherwise is just bad! They would argue that scientific advancements like nuclear power would be bad and so forth. Basically, they would like to roam naked in the wood and prefer doing things more naturally! Once again, are they right or wrong?
This specific case, I think they’re not only wrong but super stupid! In the movies, we got superhuman, but in this case, we got super dumb ideology! Why? Just like any tool, it got two sides! One good and one bad! Like a knife, you could use a knife to cut food or kill people! One is good, and one is bad! So, when scientific developments are meant to be used for good, these things are naturally good. These things are more natural than a rock which sits pretty on the ground all day long!
People who argue that developments are bad should ask the dinosaurs why they had extinct! Isn’t it obvious that the dinosaurs couldn’t think as deep as humans thus they could not fly away for a brief vacation till things on earth cool down? This is why scientific advancements are super crucial for the human race as a whole! We need to be able to escape one rock and cultivate another just so we could avoid our own extinction!
Us humans tend to be not only stupid but we are also very arrogant! We tend to think that what we got would last forever! Unfortunately, we could not live forever, and our human race won’t exist forever also! Why? Even the sun will cease to exist eventually! So, even the scale of the universe would not last forever, why would we think our earth would last forever? If earth would not last forever, how will human race last forever? Isn’t it natural for earthy humans to devise plans for our continuation even though we know nothing would last forever?
So, let’s get back down to earth and think simpler! I think nature itself is just a tool! If you’re sick and needing a cure, the right herbs naturally would cure you. If you’re not too careful and eating the wrong mushrooms that exist naturally in nature, you would naturally die! Nature exists as both good and bad! So let us not be that stupid to think that developments are bad, and whatever exists naturally is naturally good!
Sometimes, hugging a tree is bad for the whole human race! Instead of hugging a tree, we need to plant trees as a development and common sense! Don’t argue that any development is bad! Don’t just say nuclear power is unsafe! In fact, I believe that we may need more advancement in nuclear power so we could suppress the tyranny of distance within our universe so we could travel far and cultivate more out-of-this-world colonies (i.e., in space) so we could lengthen the human race lifespan!
I’m living in an area where greenery isn’t lacking, and so I don’t have to think much about what if there isn’t much greenery around. Probably, somewhere there are places that have gotten so desolated, and so greenery would probably be out of reach.
In China, there are places that either desert sands would eat up greenery or the neglect of environment that would turn greenery area into a dry, desolated man-made scenery.
Would you prefer more trees and lakes and cleaner air than dry, dirty, desolated scenery? I know I would want greenery over a desert for my daily scenery. Unless, of course, from time to time, I want to be in awe and become a tourist, I would love to travel to a desert, but other than such a moment of spark I would love to bathe myself in greenery for sure. After all, more trees would be able to suck out the pollutions that we are creating every day from our vehicles and whatnot. Basically, a healthy dose of greenery each day is a healthy day for a person to live for.
Anyhow, I think China has done something amazing. China is continuing to make progress on creating forests in the most desolated places in China. For an example, Saihanba, North of Beijing was once a beautiful, greenery area where royal family members in Qing dynasty would use as a hunting area, but after Qing dynasty had gotten weak the place got deteriorated for letting people chopping trees down for lumber as a way of making money. Then one day the Chinese people found out the whole place got only one tree left standing. That was when the Chinese were mustered up to recreate the greenery for the place.
Nowadays, Saihanba got 480 million trees standing to let whoever wants to visit the place to take in a beautiful, majestic greenery scene. From one tree to 480 million trees, I think it’s a beautiful thing! What do you think?
Something about pandas that make you think of serenity and cuteness. Check out cute pandas in glorious 4K resolution in the video right after the break. Meanwhile, if you like the video, you can subscribe to the video’s YouTube channel. I think the owner of “Amazing Places on our Planet” YouTube channel got a lot more awesome 4K videos to share with you.
Got a 4K display? If not, you can watch 4K time-lapse video of North America in a less than 4K glorious resolution. I’m sure it will be just as stunning as in 4K display. This video brought to you by 3motion user on Vimeo, and I have no affiliation to this person or Vimeo whatsoever. Nonetheless, it’s a cool video to share, and so check it out right after the break. Enjoy!!!
Just took some more photos of Lake Lanier, but this time I took them photos from different vantage point of Lake Lanier. This time, I like to emphasize the drought condition in Georgia by taking photos that show part of Lake Lanier is now only puddles of water. The irony is that, on the other side of the road, Lake Lanier is still looking gorgeous as ever. Anyhow, you should check out them photos at my EndlessBit photoblog. Feeling lazy? You don’t have to hop over to EndlessBit, because you can just check out the slideshow right after the break. Enjoy!!!
