The concept of the Kardashev scale was developed by cosmonaut NikolaiKardashev as a way of categorizing Cosmic civilizations. Scientists, such as Carl Sagan, during the 1970s calculated that humanity was currently at a Type Zero status, roughly around 0.7. Most scientific estimates conclude that humanity will reach Type One status by around 2100. However, if we consider the rapid mobilization of resources that occurred during the world wars in which entire domestically oriented economies were retrofitted into complete war machines for military production within 6 months. Then utilizing similar mobilized coordinated industrial backing, any type of revolutionary momentum against the consolidation of power developed under Global Capitalism could be boosted with this industrial mobilization in which a full Type One civilization could be developed within a decade.

A Type One civilization transcends the current Type Zero civilization pieced together under Global Capitalism because the fundamental basis of capitalism’s privatization inhibits civilization from actually developing beyond its own contradictions and limitations. We already see immense Tier systems used in Global Capitalism to manage multiple levels of civilization development built to various complexity so as to isolate and limit those who can gain access and the means to access a “1st class/1st world” lifestyle. This hierarchical construction of multiple levels of civilization perpetuates not just wealth stratification, but stratification of civilization to the point that small enclaves of super wealthy are conceivably living in a near breakaway civilization. Such technological advances in the upper echelon of this quasi-civilization risks isolating technologies such as human augmentation and other transhuman technologies that can be used by elites to justify pseudo-God like dominion over their enclaves and networks of wealth and prestige that mirrors the dictatorial and tyrannical deities foreshadowed in our ancient myths and legends.

If humanity is to evolve and advance as a species, the privatization perpetuated by Global Capitalism must end; or else a true breakaway civilization will occur generating stratification of species, in which technologically integrated humanoids position themselves as quasi-deities that use their privatized wealth to control the rest of humanity. Therefore, the entire premise of a Type One civilization must not only be designed to distribute these technologies to all of humanity, but must be done so in a manner in which private economies and private individuals do not have the power to control the mechanisms of civilization as we know it. Potential for a Type One civilization to create immense civilization upgrades transcending the current “1st class/1st world” lifestyle will be reflected in the creation of a unified global civilization under which the masses of humanity develop self sustainable and self-sufficient communities connecting into a global network of the human species. And together, this Type One civilization can expand humanity in mass into the rest of the Solar System and beyond. Should this Type One civilization not form; the separation of the breakaway upper echelon of society will forsaken their responsibilities, severing the tops of our centralized and vertically organized structures and institutions. Leaving the rest of humanity disorganized and in a state of collapse; with a biosphere completely broken by Global Capitalization.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
