look within; not with out

Many good comments on such a short video, a video that someone spent a great deal of time on. I must assume they had a message. But always the message must contain the truth as found in the Torah to be considered prophetic. So that is my question, is it prophetic? I think so. It admits our sinful nature, but does it only allude to Gd's Greatness? He is perfect. So then, this video must be simply a call to endure, a call to overcome. If someone gave you a piece of their heart, wouldn't you love them enough to carry out their wishes? I thank the person of this video for causing deep thought and introsepction into ourselves as we compare ourselves to the Tanakh.

Where is HaShem in thoughts like this?

Thoughts like this one have complete disregard for the creator and his hand in all things. We were created to advance, it is all in a matter of how we use it. Thankfully, HaShem created a world of checks and balances. If you believe the Bible then you know the outcome. There is no mystery. Secondly, People love to "blame" things for their problems. Saying that Technology or whatever else is on the agenda is destroying our collective soul is ridiculous. People are to blame for their own actions and choices. It is our duty to grow our collective soul no matter what is taking place in our world. Anything less is just a cop-out.

I think it was started a long time ago

I think that we were made to advance to a certain degree,and that is the way G.d wanted us to be. As time went on everything went faster until everything had to be faster to keep up, and with that we lost alot of our most sacred parts of ourselves,in the race to get ahead we lost our innocence and now almost nothing surprises us, yes it is stealing our souls and will continue until someone finally pushes that button we always have heard about. We humans are best at war and destruction. G..d help us, please!
