Two Systems Operating

When I am experiencing an answer to a question, I see the answer reflected in different ways. It all begins,when I get a new idea. The idea can emerge from a book,an encounter, or my personal thoughts.

I have been hearing our World is making major changes as we approach Year 2012. You may have heard of the Mayan End Times. Many people believe that the Year 2012 is when the world will end, because that is when the Mayan calendar ends.

Living in Guatemala among the Mayans, I have gained a new understanding of this information. The Mayans actually say that we are in the process of creating a New Day. The New Day is when the old ways will pass away, and we will start doing things differently.

And it is said part of the difference is, we will actually start providing everything we need for ourselves without the use of money. That idea begged a question. How in the world are we going to have what we need without money?

And instantly, right in front of my nose was the answer. I was using Open Source software to create this post. My software was created by folks who wished to share with others. They used their energies creating something useful to others. They share their creations freely.

And there are the two systems operating. The folks at Microsoft wish to sell us what they make. Yet, the Open Source folks create software of equal value, and share it with us freely.

Can a system not based on money, provide us with the things we need? Open Source shows us an answer to that question. It works without money, and provides what we need.

The Future may have answers to our problems that we haven’t thought of before. Possibly, we’ve been distracted by the money. ET
