What to do?

One can start by eliminating the given knowledge you will waste time trying to employ. The goal is to use your imagination.

Einstein said that imagination is of greater use than knowledge.

There is a saying used by the computer community; garbage in, garbage out. This holds true for the human mind as well.

How can we know what to do when all we see and hear is garbage? The news has become a cooking show. Mind numbing entertainment like American Idol and Dancing with the Stars has become the input we are absorbing instead of imagining and working toward a better world.

Imagine a world where people live in peace, treat their fellow man with respect and truly live a life of conscience. Make it so and mankind will become truly great.
