The world as we know it


Already couple of world ends passed by in my life and now another one is announced for 21th. When ever I hear "end of the world" I always recall the chorus of R.E.M. song:

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

While I don't believe in coming catastrophe and physical destruction of the world, I find it pretty possible that sooner or later something or someone will come and put the world, as we know it, to the end - starting a brand new chapter in human history.

Imagine the world if the old rules would no more apply, imagine the world if all material would loos it's power over people. Imagine:

Imagine there's no heaven
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today
Imagine there's no countries
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
Imagine no possessions
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all of the world...

Imagine people would drop their fears, anxieties and shames; rewards and punishments; opinions and judgments;praise and blame; sense and nonsense;... Wouldn't that be the end of the world as we know it?...
