What keep us moving

I was wondering what are the main issues that impell us going ahead and towards what...
-power (control and decide, domination)
-pleasure (sex.... sensitive emotions (touch, ear, see, smell, taste, perception)
-money ( exchange, to buy, buy and buy)
could these, make civilizations fall, even implode? By history many societys have fall and raise based on essencially on a mix of such described points.
No tiranic, no oligarchic, theocratic, not even democratic societys have last forever; So how long could we expect that our societys ("western " ones) last? Babylons, Greeks, Lacedemonees, Romans, Egiptians, Maya with such a "balanced vision" haven't been hable to sustain their own people, invaders etc.
So my point is, since we are living in a such a speed of light, i expect that our societys, the way they are established, be conducted to an end (for instance a multinational company could buy a country because of its debt? could a country finance another and receive that territory as payment of a debt?)
We are we keep moving!

Portuguese: a tremendous heritage

Não há dúvida sobre a importância da comnicação ;Embora os nossos computadores sejam mais rápidos e os softwares sejam mais eficientes do que nunca, não poderemos nunca sobrestimar o poder de uma língua, não só enquanto informação objetiva, mas também enquanto percepção emocional; Como eu dizia anteriormente, um computador pode de facto fazer este "trabalho" por nós (tradutores e leitores digitais) mas naturalmente sem o mesmo resultado; Eu admiro-me que 204 milhões de almas falem a mesma língua e que provavelmente consigam transmitir as mesmas emoções pela sua língua que é a 6ª língua mais falada no mundo; Mas enquanto língua estrangeira estamos longe do francês e inglês; Naturalmente que o Brasil tem aqui um papel decisivo do futuro da mesma! (94% da população mundial que fala português é do Brasil!) As equipes multidisciplinares (cultural, o esporte, cientifico, o negócio, ong etc.) devem estar coordenadas para estender e realçar esta herança. Quanto à beleza da própria língua (a pergunta seria: a minha língua é sexy?), bem penso que sempre dependerá do emissor da mensagem, do seu tom, variáveis ligadas e que referencias emocionais temos de tal língua. Portanto eu poderia ouvir uma lingua como o Farsi/Persian e gostar.Independentemente de tudo, isto será como o consumo: quanto mais compramos de um determinado país, mais obrigados seremos a absorver a sua cultura e inevitavelmente a sua lingua.
There's no doubt about the importance of comunication;
Although our computers are faster and software aplications are more eficient than never
one can never understimate the power of a language, in order to get not only objective
information, but also emotional perception; As i was saying before a computer can actually
do this job for us (translators and digital readers) but of course we can't get the same result;
I was wondering that 204 Million souls speak the same language and most likely that can transmit same emotions through their language as the 6th spoken language in ther world;
But as a foreing language we are far away from French and English; Of course Brasil
has here a tremendous role for the future! Multidisciplinary teams (cultural, sport, cientific, business, ong etc) should be arranged in order to spread and enhance this heritage.
As for the beauty of the language itself (the question would be is my language sexy?) , well i think it will always depend on the messenger tone and all the variables linked to, what emotive references do we have from it. So i could hear Farsi/Persian and like it anyway. Nevertheless this is like consumption: the more we buy from a certain country, more andatory will be its cultural influence hence its invitable language.

Happy new terrestrial year for everyone!
I was about going to sleep, when, after some web crawling (news actually)
i gave myself thinking why do evolute always towards self satisfaction and need/desire (basic instincts...). Biologically, technologically either (..)etc. we've always got our evolution balance through that terms. Its fair also to consider that if we did evolute in such terms, so did our emotions too. But what about our reason?? Does our reason evolute in the same pace? Could we afirm that our decisions are reasonable taken regardless our primary needs? My opinion is a straight "No"... The facts are known for everyone, we are always trying to get the easiest solution, to use less energy (to be lazy, in the limit : ) ) But the easieast solutions are always surrounded by unexpected, unpredictacle, dangerous variables which we can't control. Human societys always generated their own solutions (needs) and problems (most of the times free of charge). Nowadays, more then ever, seems that our needs are completely moved by emotion, in such a spiral way, where Ego is a supermassive exponential center, and rotates fast and unstable. Lets take some of examples of incongruity....
-men can save lives through science, science can produce bombs to take lives.
-men can create laws to ensure security, laws can take freedom away
-men creates vaccines to avoid deseases to spread, men creates deseases to justify vaccines.
-people can reduce their fat by medical cirurgy, this same intervention can be potencial unsafe
-people reach faster ( instatly) to information, information is manipulated by govs and corporations.
-people crawl the web much more, personal contact is less needed
-men relations and family concept is modifying (stress, gay coupling) hence less new born people on super cities...
and so on....

be happy!
