A quiet world
Imagine, if you will, walking along a busy street in downtown New York, or Toronto, or Tokyo. The noise can be deafening. And for people who live there, the constant noise pollution begins to weigh on their body and mind and spirit. Even though the noise can become background, that you become accustomed to it, it still has a very powerful, negative effect on our being. It is foreign. People become more anxious, sleep disturbances are common, restlessness, eating disorders can arise, a gentle sense of malaise, depression. Getting out of the city for a weekend or a holiday really helps. But once back, the symptoms return.
Elon Musk says that in 25 years or so, almost 100% of vehicles on the road will be electric. Think about that. Silence. A quiet peaceful planet. The health of us all will rise and depression will begin to be a thing of the past. Imagine walking on one of those busy city streets then…with cars zooming past, silently.
It is cause for a breath, and a wish….that it could come sooner.
