Article 1.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Wait until you see it, , , , , ,

"Truth is Singular, the pursuit of truth is the search for an absolution, that remains infinite."

If it does nothing but consume and reproduce, what is it? A virus, a bacteria, and schizophrenic people, that think they're intelligent. Let's review the facts at hand, and then explain them throughout the "TIME", you'll spend reading it.

A brief description of TIME, as it pertains to my mind, and this thesis.

Oldest known cave paintings made by man, scientifically radio and carbon dated to approximately 40 000 years ago. The same science concludes, that there were less than half a billion people on the earth at that "TIME". From the "TIME" of those cave paintings, until the year 1960, is how long it took human population to grow from less than half a billion, to 3 billion, a population growth of just 2.5 billion, over a "TIME"span of "40 000 years", let me say that again, a population growth of 2.5 billion, over a "TIMEspan of "40 000 years" do you understand this number and "TIME"frame?

However, from the year 1960, to this the year 2016, human population grew by almost double that, a population growth of 4.4 billion, over a "TIME"span of just "56 years". Most people don't understand these numbers, and how they apply to them, so. Human population growth in the last 24 hours, 200 000, that means, you the human race birth and build a city the size of Rochester New York, for EVERY 24 hour "TIME"span. Human population growth in the year 2015, "82 million", that means you the human race birth and build a country the size of Germany, for every ONE year of "TIME".

7.412 Billion (current human population), if it grows at 1% per year, it doubles in 70 years, if it grows at 2% per year, it doubles in 35 years, if it grows at 3% per year, it doubles in 24 years. Anything that grows exponentially, grows in a predictable amount of TIME. "56 years" a population growth of 4.4 billion, talk about "Economic Growth". Speaking of Economy, and Economic Growth, how does that all work, you figure? Supply and demand? Your country has what's known as a GDP statistic, or (Gross Domestic Products) it's a measure of your "Economic Growth", and the "Stability" of your "Economy". So, how do you continuously grow the demand for your country's Gross Domestic Products? By exponentially increasing the population of other countries, to create the demand for it, that's how.

Therein lies the reason you birth and build a city the size of Rochester New York, for every 24 hour TIMEspan. If you don't, your "Economy" will fail. So, it would appear, that you have to grow your populations exponentially, to maintain your quality and standard of life, or your economic stability. According to my math, and your Government, United Nations and IMF (International Monetary Fund), and the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, you the human race, need at least 2.3% economic growth, to sustain your Global Economy.

The Global Economy, isn't just your jobs, it's your Education System, your Health Care System, your Social Security System, your Justice System, your Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, and the two most important things, your 19 trillion dollar debt, (plus interest), and your PENSION. So, if you grow your populations exponentially to sustain all these things, you end up with a war in Syria, that is a masquerade for a very real, very serious quagmire, that quagmire being, Economic Growth, is the leading cause of Global Warming, and Climate Change.

Human population, is now growing faster than any virus or bacteria known to man, to sustain your economy, or, your quality and standard of life, it would be equivalent to you inhaling a single Ebola Virus, and that virus consumes and reproduces so fast, you're dead in 55 seconds. Do you actually believe, the "Refugee Crisis" in Europe, is a result of a war in Syria? Considering 40% of the Refugees don't come from Syria,,,, well, you figure it out. 7.412 billion, with a need to sustain 2.3% growth, equals 15 billion people on earth, by the year 2050. Or, human population will exceed the planet's ability to sustain it, in the next 24-35 years, if you continue Economic Growth. It's a quagmire, wrapped up in an ironic paradox of Karma, and there is nothing you can do to stop it, as, you're out of TIME. ANYTHING, that grows EXPONENTIALLY, is UNSUSTAINABLE. Global Economic Failure, is IMMINENT.

All Human Beings, is RELATIVE to TIME.
