CHAPTER ONE - INTRODUCTION

***************


***HALF EMPTY - HALF FULL***

We, earth humans, are currently living within a world-wide predatory
human society. This narrative presents a viable alternative to this
predatory society. However, because the "perfect society" is different
than what we have been conditioned to, it is necessary that you be
willing to consider things from a different prospective than you
probably have been use to doing.

FOR EXAMPLE:
The old adage of a half glass of water being viewed by some people as
"half empty" and by other people as "half full" does not go far enough,
because there really are at least three, and not just the 2 conditions
usually applied to that adage.

The full 3 conditions in that familiar adage should address the
important issues as to whether the glass is:
...1.) half empty on its way to being completely empty or
...2.) half full on its way to total fullness, OR
...3.) is it in a holding "going nowhere" condition.

In the manner of "going further", this book one presents the "Perfect
society" as a way for us to achieve society completeness (that's the
good news). Book two will be about *WHY* our present day society is
really "half empty" on its way to extinction (that's the bad news).
Book three will deal with "How to Get to" the "Perfect Society".

----------



***A UNIQUE TIME***

We are in an unique age, for this is the time period when we earth
humans have an extraordinary opportunity to transition to a "perfect
society", the so-called utopian society.

Over the years, much has been written about an "utopian society". In
fact, in recent years, more than just writings about society changes
have been done. Various religious groups have attempted to establish
new societies - too many to mention here. And national governments
have also made attempts to establish so-called "new world orders".

For example, in the 1930/1940's there was Japan's attempt to establish
a new Asian order. In that same time period, there also was Hitler's
attempt to establish a new European Aryan order "that would last a
thousand years". And while those were going on, the Soviet Union was
attempting to setup a "communist world order".

Those three aforementioned attempts ended in dismal failure. Why?? In
addition to their many other problems, it simply was because each of
those attempts tried to remake their present predatory society into a
so-called "better" predatory society, or at least "better" was the
propaganda told to the general population, and each of those so-called
"new" societies were clearly overt predatory "police states".

Each of those attempts, which admittedly have been failures, failed for
that same reason. Within each of those three above mentioned failed
"new societies", the very system itself was designed so that some group
members were more *equal* than the ordinary members and those "elite
society members" were "enriching" themselves (being predatory) at the
expense of the other "common" society members.

A POINT:
Predatory societies are doomed to fail. The "seed" for their failure
is the fact that they are predatory. That "being predatory" was one
thing that those diverse governments of Japan, Germany, and the Soviet
Union shared in common in their failed attempts to establish "new"
world orders.

***SOME WORDS OF PREPARATION***

Some readers might, at first reading, find some of these perfect
society concepts and comments to be "entertaining", so I assure you
readers at the outset, that this book one **IS** intended to be a
*serious* expression of realistic society options and possibilities,
even though these concepts do represent an innovative perspective.

I freely acknowledge that the concepts expressed in this book one will
NOT be from "conventional wisdom". So, I am recommending, "up front",
that you DO NOT jump to quick conclusions without first considering the
complete "Whys", and "Wherefores".

Serious readers should quickly realize, that IF they reflect and give
FAIR consideration to the concepts expressed herein, then they should
discover (after reading through the specific details) that these
concepts are both plausible and logical, although they may, at first
impression, have seemed to be unusual or even "far fetched".

May you enjoy reading this narrative.

QUESTION:
Is the perfect society so complicated that it simply is beyond the
capability of humans??

ANSWER:
NO!! The perfect society is really quite simple and easy.

***ABOUT CHANGING HUMAN GENDER***

Although the above perfect society points will be addressed in detail
in later pages, I have decided to present information here in this
"Introduction" (as an example), about people having the option to
change their birth gender, IF THEY SO CHOOSE.

There are three basic components to consider when evaluating this
"gender-changing" point:

...1.) *normal* human birth gender is selected by random action;
...2.) long-life;
...3.) fairness.

NOTE:
I use the term *normal* to mean a human pregnancy achieved by a male
and a female that is NOT the result of some outside intervention.


1.) THE "RANDOM ACTION" COMPONENT:

SOME FACTS:

I am using the word "random" in the sense of an action with two unique
possibilities, similar to this definition from Webster's dictionary:

# Main Entry: random
# Function: adjective
# Date: 1565
#
# 2 b : being or relating to a set or to an element of a set each of
# whose elements has equal probability of occurrence"

As verified by this following paragraph from an October 29th 1999
article from "The Associated Press", the gender of a child is
determined by whether the male's sperm, (the one that fertilizes the
female egg), carries an "X" or a "Y" chromosome:

# "The X and Y chromosomes decide whether a baby is boy or girl.
# Mothers carry two X chromosomes and fathers carry one copy each
# of the X and the Y. Sperm from the father has only half of the
# normal 23 pairs of chromosomes and carries either a single X or
# Y chromosome. The mother's egg also has half the normal
# complement of chromosomes and includes a single X. If a Y
# chromosome from the sperm fertilizes the egg, then the baby is
# male because the resulting cells each have one Y and one X. If
# the sperm has an X chromosome, then the child is female, with
# two X chromosomes in the cells."

According to this following statement from the 1995 edition of "The
World Book Encyclopedia" in the topic of "Sex ratio", there are
slightly more human male births than human female births:

# "Among human beings, for example, 103 to 107 boys are born for
# every 100 girls. In the adult population, however, women
# out-number men because women, on the average, live longer."

ANALYSES OF THOSE FACTS:

Thus, assuming that a particular male has a usual amount of "X" sperm
and "Y" sperm, then the odds are fairly even (about 52 to 50) as to
whether a pregnancy with him will result in a male or a female child.

So, although there can be families of several male children or several
female children, the overall human statistics show a fairly close
balance among male and female births. IF a particular male carries
both "X" and "Y" chromosome sperm (as is the usual), then the sperm
that actually fertilizes the egg is a result from "random action".

Thus, most children's *normal* birth gender is NOT the result from a
"planned action" (speaking only about the action of *which* chromosome
sperm actually fertilizes the female egg).

SUB POINT:
Thus, barring any outside intervention, the gender of any particular
human child, from a *normal* pregnancy, IS determined by "random
action".

-----



2.) THE "LONG LIFE" COMPONENT:

The earth human life expectancy (the average "expected" living time of
a human child at their birth) has varied at different times in history
and between different cultures, from about an age of 38 to over the age
of 75 or longer. It is simply commonsense to acknowledge that the
amount of time that a person *expects* to live will affect many of the
decisions that an individual might make as he/she ages.

For example, someone with a 38 year *expected* life-time might decide
NOT to go to school up to age 30 before beginning a career, or that "38
year life-time" individual may decide to marry and raise a family much
sooner than a person with a "75 year or more" life expectancy might do.

In the "perfect earth society", individuals will be living much longer
lives than any previously experienced upon this earth (normal life
expectancy will be MUCH LONGER than 120 years) - in fact, earth humans
in the perfect society can expect to live indefinitely.

WHY??
Because earth humans will then routinely be physically "renewed"
allowing for a life expectancy far beyond the present experience (and
this potential is becoming a possibility today). I will expand upon
this "physical renewal" in a later chapter.

SUB POINT:
Therefore people who earlier might have been willing to "put up with" a
gender that was not totally pleasing (because its only for 38 years,
etc) might, in the perfect earth human society, decide to request a
change in gender so that they might live their long *expected* lifetime
to the maximum satisfactory potential possible.

----------



3.) THE "FAIRNESS" COMPONENT:

Therefore,
...1.) since a child does not get to choose his/her gender before being
born, and that birth gender (in normal circumstances) is decided as a
result of "random action",

...2.) and since a perfect society child will have an extremely long
*expected* lifetime to look forward to,

...3.) then it is only reasonable and fair that an adult who is not
pleased with his/her birth gender, be allowed to request a change to
the other gender rather than to force that individual to "make do" or
to "put up with" a gender that is less than pleasing to him/her.

I must note here that advances in technology will make it possible for
some future parents to choose the gender of their child, but regardless
of whether or not some adult chooses the gender of a certain pregnancy,
it is an undeniable fact that the human child does NOT make a choice
beforehand. Therefore whether someone is born as a male or as a female,
it was not their individual choice to be so.

A POINT:
Thus, allowing the option for individuals to change their birth gender,
IF THEY WANT TO, is simply a matter of good commonsense, courtesy, and
fairness.

So, even readers who might have been "shocked" at a *gender change*
proposal being an accepted normal part of a perfect society, should now
be able to get over their initial "shock". AND they should also be
able to recognize the merit, rightness and fairness of allowing those
adults who, in the future, have a "gender discontent", to have an open,
above board society-accepted remedy to change their "gender discontent"
situation into a "gender content" situation.

As I previously stated, other aspects of both the "physical renewal"
and the "physical change" concepts will be presented later on.
