A solution to all our big problems

Eureka! Eureka! After deep research and many many years of observation, I've finally had a breakthrough as I woke up this morning. I believe I've discovered a solution that would eradicate all world problems. Injustice, Inequality, Inhumanity and all other 'Ins' that plague our world, would simply vanish if only we could build this device. Yes it certainly would! Read on...

The present situation:

Though we are always dreaming about a Utopian world, we somehow also conclude about its impracticalities before giving up altogether. We want to change our world and everything in it, but we cannot change ourselves. We all want to be human but we don't know how. We buy 'Be Human' tee shirts but wear them only to conceal our souls. We give to charity so we could save on taxes.

We give to beggars but we do so by throwing a few loose change from a safe and hygienic distance. We push aside the elderly and the invalids so we could claim our ill-gotten victory. We abuse women and children and then open up institutions, NGOs and reservation schemes to satiate our urge to be 'human'.

We create borders and then spend billions to find magical erasers to rub them off. We create weapons of mass destruction in the name of defence but use these to abolish helpless nations. We create wars so we could build a better economy for ourselves. 

We have ruined all of our natural resources and now plan to ruin other planets too. We have systematically exploited the food chain but still don't have enough to feed our greed. We know how fickle a species we are when it comes to giving back to nature, but we rather prefer to roam around with a guilt conscience. We know we are doomed but we trust we would be saved. We know we are mortal but we believe we could take it all.

What if...
  • We build a device that could calculate when we would die, right at the time of birth. (When doctors can calculate when you would come out from the womb, can't they also calculate when you would leave the body?)
  • We are able to 'visually map' all our actions in this life in real-time and also after we die? These could be put on our certificates, resumes and our epitaphs as well.
  • We could communicate with all kinds of flora and fauna and be amazed at everything big and small. We could live in harmony with an 'intelligence' exchange with them. Remember when we had that major tsunami attack, most of the animals had moved to higher altitudes days before!

If we are equipped with this kind of knowledge, we could be forced to be human. What say?
