Over the holidays, I spent some time self-reflecting, reading books and developing goals for the upcoming year. And to be totally honest, there was also quite a bit of binge watching on a few “claim to fame” series; one of which was “The Expanse”.
I am not a SciFi guy, but this series for some reason grew on me and got me hooked (blame it on Star Wars, which I again binged on).
While I was dwelling upon the infinities of the Galaxies, there’s one thing that mesmerized me at the end of Season 4 — The emergence of “The Ring”. I could straight away draw a parallel of the Ring to the year that passed 2020 — the unknowns that it had, the chaos it created, the threats it presented and the opportunities that arose to explore.
The Ring, as they call it the Sol Gate, is a structure created by the protomolecule after a certain incubation period.
So, what are the protomolecules in human existence?
Human Greed, Desire of Power, Ego to name a few. Over a long Incubation of these human traits of narcissism, it was time for nature to bring in equilibrium in its own way.
It created a Chaos in the system, with the COVID-19 virus, Wildfires, earthquakes, floods , hurricanes etc.
That’s the Emergence of The Ring — The Human Sol Gate
It’s time for reality check, understand the threats, get pragmatic and correct course.
- Economic Instability
- Global Warming
- Lack of Leadership
- Socio-Cultural Differences to name a few..
Opportunities — Wormhole Gates
Now, whilst we are learning to recover from these threats, exploring newer opportunities, embracing renewable energy and creating a new sustainable world for the generations to come, we will have to be aware of not giving rise to yet another protomolecule that can disturb the equilibrium of the system.
