A MODERATE OPTIMIST has a positive outlook and believes that some good things will happen in the future.

"Low levels of pessimism, rather than high levels of optimism, have been associated with better health.

"Having realistic expectations, rather than taking extremely positive or negative positions, may actually be the recipe for good health and happiness.

"Rather than constantly aiming for a bright smile and sunny disposition, or giving in to an overall negative outlook, the goal should be moderate optimism

Researchers at Harvard University have reported that:

People who are optimistic tend to live longer than their less-optimistic people.

The study appeared in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Some Americans and Brits are not as optimistic as they used to be.

This may be a cause of falling Life Expectancy.

Is Shrinking Optimism Tied to Drop in U.S. Life Expectancy ...

The degree of pessimism felt by an individual or group can often be linked to political and economic conditions in their personal lives and their society.

It would appear that there was no similar rise in mortality in the small, often mildly socialist countries in Europe and Asia.

US life expectancy falls for third year in a row

Life Expectancy -
United States 79.5 years
Switzerland 83.4 years
Iceland 83.0 years
Singapore 83.6 years
Switzerland 83.489 years
Sweden 82.6 years 

Research shows that People who are 'happy, positive and optimistic' have a lower risk of developing a cold or flu.

Vasubandhu (4th to 5th century C.E.) was a Budhist monk.

Vasubandhu's major ideas are:[7]

"Whatever we are aware of, think about, experience, or conceptualize, occurs to us nowhere else than within consciousness."

"External objects do not exist."

As Chögyal Namkhai Norbu puts it: "In a real sense, all the visions that we see in our lifetime are like a big dream . . . ."[2]


Markus Buch -

"If life is a dream, then it must have a purpose...

"Therefore, what is the purpose of life as dream?

"Life is definitely a story full of symbolic events ...character development...

"Therefore, the best bet for me is to behave nicely..."


"According to contemporary teacher Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, all appearances perceived during the whole life of an individual, through all senses, including sounds, smells, tastes and tactile sensations in their totality, are like a big dream. 

"It is claimed that, on careful examination, the dream of life and regular nightly dreams are not very different, and that in their essential nature there is no difference between them."


"Carl Jung believed that aside from each of us having our own conscious and subconscious selves, all humans are all somehow connected in one universal and collective unconscious."

Interstellar: Parallel Universes, Dreams, & The Mind .

"This collective unconscious is what gives us similar imagery in our dreams, and even ideas for myths, beliefs and folktales around the world...

"Cultures across the globe have very distinctive 'hero's journey' stories, along with many other archetypal tales and beliefs, that somehow all seem to share similar points in the plot line.


"One of the main ways in which Jung suggested that humans connect to the collective unconscious is through dreams.

This maybe points to the idea that somehow, through dreams, we can reach out to other people who are very far away or even gone from this world, since dreams exist in a place that knows no dimensional bounds... 

"Love is the only thing that seems to transcend both time and space."

Jesus said: "Because of your faith, it will happen."

The Buddha said, "What you dwell upon you become." 

Hindu mysticism says, "Whatever a person's mind dwells on intensely and with firm resolve, that is exactly what he becomes."


The USA has two problems which have recently been highlighted by The Economist:

1. The US army is finding it increasingly difficult to recruit people for its military.

2. Many large US corporations are seeing a drop in profits.

Who will fight the next war? / The age of the torporation

When it comes to recruiting for the military the problems are:

1. Many young Americans are too overweight to join the military.

2. Many young Americans have tattoos, and the military won't take people with tattoos.

3. Many young American females have babies and toddlers to look after, so the military will not recruit them.

4. Many young Americans struggle to do mental arithmetic, so the military will not recruit them.

5. A growing number of the better educated young Americans do not like the military because of its actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.

Who will fight the next war?

The main cause of death of US soldiers is suicide.

One-third of America's serving military personnel suffer from psychiatric disorders.

The Economist relates that "for the second quarter in a row the sales and profits of members of the S&P 500 (top companies) are expected to fall...

"Even the tech industry's earnings are flat...

The age of the torporation

The main cause of America's decline is that it has been hijacked by a rich and corrupt elite.

"The United States has a greater disparity of wealth than almost any other nation on earth. Four hundred U.S. billionaires have more money than half the people of the United States combined..."

The Decline and Fall of the United States Washington's Blog.

American kids tend to be mind controlled.

Too many Americans fail to see that the US government carries out acts of false flag terrorism.

The biggest act of terrorism in the UK has been blamed on the CIA and its friends.

So, who controls the USA?

We call them Nazi-Zionist-Mafia-Robber Barons.

What we want is an end to AMERICANISATION.

Americanisation means the destruction of pretty gardens and houses and their replacement with ugly concrete structures.

Americanisation means crime, violence and unhappy children.

Americanisation means that beautiful old cultures are torn down and replaced with malls where you can buy McDonalds or watch a film about madness, mayhem and murder.

Americanisation means control by the military, the drug mafias and the big corporations.

When people try to resist Americanisation they find that they are subjected to false-flag terrorism and rigged elections.

"There are no people outdoors anymore - no kids on bikes, no neighbors talking over fences, no old men sitting on porches."

According to Gallup, 1957 was the happiest year ever in the USA.

After that, it was all downhill.

Bill Bryson has written about the destruction of pretty towns and farms in the USA.

Bill Bryson: The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid (2006)

1. American Farms destroyed

Bill Bryson writes: "I was born into a state that had two hundred thousand farms. 

"Today the number is less than half that and falling...

"Most small towns in Iowa have pretty well died.

"Drive anywhere in the state these days and what you see are empty towns, empty roads, collapsing barns, boarded farmhouses."

Bigger farms make more money.

2. Americans' worship of money.

Bill Bryson describes the Americans' worship of mammon in the years after 1957.

"We were entering a world where things were done because they offered a better return, not a better world.

"People were wealthier than ever before, but life somehow didn’t seem as much fun...

"Women increasingly went out to work..."

3. Americans become more dumb and more criminal.

Bill Bryson writes: "Juvenile crime continued to rise and the education system seemed to be falling apart.

"The most popular nonfiction book of 1957 was an attack on American education standards called Why Johnny Can’t Read..."

"Television got itself into a terrible scandal when it was revealed that many of the game shows were rigged."

4. American Towns destroyed

Bill Bryson describes what happened to Des Moines as the big corporations took over.

"Now we would be able to dine at the same restaurants, eat the same fast foods, wear the same clothes, direct visitors to the same motel beds as people in California and New York and Florida.

"Des Moines would be exactly like everywhere else...

"Often now along streets like Grand and University avenues the old houses were bulldozed to splinters...

"Two stately Victorian houses across from Tech High School on Grand had become sudden vague memories.

"The old downtown movie palaces were among the first to go.

"Bishop’s, our beloved cafeteria, closed about the same time...

"The Register ... which once truly was the pride of Iowa, got taken over by the Gannett organization three years later. Today it is, well, not what it was...

"My peerless Little League park, with its grandstand and press box, was torn down...

"There are no people outdoors anymore - no kids on bikes, no neighbors talking over fences, no old men sitting on porches.

"Everyone is indoors.

"All the downtown stores went one by one...

"Then somebody got mugged or saw a disturbed homeless person or something, and hardly anybody went downtown after dark after that, and most of the rest of the restaurants and nightspots closed.

"In the ultimate indignity, even the bus station moved out...

The USA could be healed if the top people followed the words of Jesus:

Blessed are the peacemakers.

Blessed are the merciful.

Blessed are the meek.

Love your enemies.

First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

You cannot serve God and money.

Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

The greatest among you shall be your servant.

YES, so there is a hope that bloody wars will END because no one will want to fight for "freedom" haha...

Americanisation :
yes, fat ugly stupid monster on speed : this is what most of America became...

But, on the other side, still some decent, spiritual people out there, alternative lifestyles, vegans, Buddhists, Hare Krishnas, etc :
society will be rebuild from the very base, but sadly not from the top, the top is as rotten as it could be haha...

The terrorists manifesto appears to contain the word "milquetoast".
This is uniquely American...no other English speaking country uses it.
Was it put there BECAUSE it is easily identifiable as American English...or is this stupidity on the part of XY or Z.
One thing is for sure NO Australian WOULD ever use this word.
