The Inspiring Philosophy of Bill Hicks

Bill Hicks was an American comedian who died of cancer at the far-too-young age of 33.

His work is ribald, profane, and thought-provoking like all get out, and if you've never heard of Bill Hicks, we strongly recommend checking out some of his stuff on the ol' Truth Box.

I was watching a Bill Hicks DVD and something he said really stuck with me.

What he said was this:

"I had a vision of a way we could have no enemies ever again, if you're interested in hearing this. Anybody interested in hearing this? It's kind of an interesting theory, and all we have to do is make one decisive act and we can rid the world of all our enemies at once.

Here's what we do:

You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defense every year? Trillions of dollars.

Instead, if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded... Not one... We could as one race explore outer space together in peace, forever."

Dang, kitten. That's out of sight.
Those words sum up fairly well what SuperForest is all about. Enthusiasm and prosperity allowing we humans access to the stars. And by extension access to greater knowledge.

Extended Peace will allow us as a race to spread our wonderful consciousness throughout many worlds, if only we can settle our differences and quit blowing one another up.

This is a goal we believe can be achieved in our lifetimes.

Love to all, and especially to the late, great Bill Hicks, for his foresight and the depth of his love for his species.
