On November 6th, 2009, Equinox was asked:
The question I have is around the conversations of how people are unemployed, underemployed, looking for work and trying to find what they should be doing. I am just curious about how we can look at all the mismatch and wonderful talent, knowledge, skills and abilities that there are in the world and really think about what that means in terms of a positive light, opportunity or lack of opportunity of incredible skills and talent that is not being used.
EQ: It is an interesting phenomenon upon Terra, that in times of lack and crisis, is when most Entities become more creative. When there is an amazing amount of talent being unused, there is so much more potential for this talent to start questioning "what is" as opposed to "what can be". So the opportunity becomes for these Entities to start looking for ways that perhaps will work better. Thee are now in a phenomenon, which is very unprecedented within Terra. Because thee are in a time of vast communication ideas from all over can begin to be exchanged. And when Entities have a vast amount of time on their hands and some of thy greatest brains have nothing else to do but to communicate dost thou not think it is potentially possible that some very important "Ahha's" will develop from this? And also that when one is idle and has a fine mind and is conversing with others in other places, also in the same situation, that these minds may then begin to understand the
Linkage? What a gift this is! For when Entities are living happily employed and very much dedicated to their jobs for whatever reason, whether it is for the income & what it can buy, for the prestige, or for the intellect, or the satisfaction, they have little time to think about anyone else, except perhaps their families.
So this is a gift, a gift to allow Entities to understand there is a much bigger picture and that they have ability within this bigger picture to make changes in this World and create what it is that is lasting and good instead of what is self oriented. Can thee see what a benefit this can be? This is the way it needs to be looked at, it needs to be looked at that when thee have spare time thee have the opportunity to utilize it. When thee have no spare time no growth really takes place, it becomes, we believe the word is a treadmill. Thee have to get off the treadmill in order to begin to look at things from a different perspective and begin to look at similarities. If thee are out of a job, and thy neighbor is out of a job, thee are more likely to get to know thy neighbor. If both of thee are working 70 hours a week, perhaps all thee know of one another is a nod. It can - and we hope it will - breakdown many barriers. It also allows Entities to begin to question what they would not have bothered to question before, to become more activistic, to begin to fight for what is real and important instead of leaving it to someone else.
Guest: So when the Renaissance came out of the Black Plague in the 14th Century people started looking at things differently.
EQ: Absolutely. And if thee study thy history, thee will see it always happens this way on Terra. Through some kind of perceived catastrophe has always come an awakening.
Guest: The economic safety nets the Governments had set up came out of the Depression. So we started thinking creatively and we started connecting.
EQ: Exactly. When thee must look at others as similarly to self there has to be a connection. But when thee are so busy doing everything else, thee are not looking at others at all except if thee are single and wanting to mate.
