Buzzkill Baba asks, "Would You Push THE Button?"

I'm not sure where this came from, but recently I, or someone has been referring to me as Buzzkill Baba. Actually, it seems quite appropriate, since my motto is "Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." Of course, nearly everyone these days, whether they will admit it or not, is afflicted, or comfortably afflicted or afflicted comfortably or... Nonetheless, as long as I can remember, there has been a tendency to zig where others zag. So, as it is common these days to try to paint a bright face on the darkness that rages, my tendency is to paint it darker, as dark as possible, and still, probably it is lighter than the reality. The bottom line - people don't want to see the truth, or as Edward R. Murrows said, " Most truths are so naked that people feel sorry for them and cover them up, at least a little bit."

Perhaps I am just masochistic. Or perhaps, I really enjoy the Truth. But either way, on to the question...

"Would you push THE button?"
What is the button? Well, Mckenna addresses this point in some of his 'extra' online materials, but relates it only to Switzerland. If you had a button in front of you, and with one push you could immediately extinguish all of humanity, would you? It would be instantaneous, painless, and would be as if suddenly all humans and human 'stuff' suddenly disappeared....ZAP! This, of course, would include YOU. Consider it a Thought Experiment. Would you do it? Consider the ramifications and consequences. Imagine the thousands upon thousands upon THOUSANDS of species that wouldl instantaneously be saved. Think of the billions upon billions of animal lives that would be saved. Think of the planet flourishing, like the Garden of Eden. Would you do it? Hmmmmm?!!?

If you would do it...why? If you wouldn't do it...why not?

Who would be pushing or not pushing the button?

(Remember, if you did it, you certainly wouldn't regret it the next moment, would you? Could you?)

Perhaps this is why we don't have access to this button. Too many of us would be fighting at the chance to slam our hands down on that puppy.
