And just where I write here I hear on the radio that a Thai film “Oncle Boonmee”, which deals with the topic of repatriation, was awarded in Cannes Golden Palm. I remembered again this return in the future, especially for the reason that moves the reality in the present, exactly in the opposite direction. I made about thoughts again and again, how can this representation from the year 2042 to reality and there is a Way that can achieve this utopian for me drawing the future -. How should a world in poverty with daily approx. 15,000 hunger deaths without war and terror death, a world in the greenhouse effect, poverty, hunger, education emergency, terrorism and wars, but 2010 looks like our world, turn to the positive. Policymakers around the world, further away from a solution of things every day. With all good will, which is also available, only more and more poverty and hunger, more climate problems, terrorism and wars are created and for the education of our children not being done what would be urgently needed. You have not long to think about, where the real problem lies, because we can hear it daily in the media, see and read, it is located right in front of our eyes: “lacks that it urge means necessary, lacking money, in cash,” that is so easy.

Lacking the financial resources to people and Nations and pointing out these “Enlightenment” and reality in the present, the inevitable way. Miracle There, but there is a way that won’t cost a penny and at the end of this path are incredible, positive Yes, described utopian episodes and a “new world”, as in 1974, the year 2042 in a return in the future and was drawn. I’m not a writer, I have no lecturer and have not studied probably German, but on where it is and what everyone will understand. I hope so at least. On my website under download, do I put the text anyone who wants it to read available and hope he brings some hope and confidence to deal with the problems of our time and help, look for the a way out which.
