LOL @ Grayman

Ummm... so... what are some of the conclusions we can extract from the understanding that there is so much space between an atom's electron(s) and its nucleus?

For one, that matter is almost entirely empty space.

We're all just a vibration and I have no idea what that means.

Will our consumer-based society be the end of us all once those natural resources have been exhausted?

What, if any, are some of the long-term consequences for our species if we fail to invest in advancing the arts, sciences, and humanities and instead focus our investments in reproduction and consumption?

I'm paraphrasing general ideas here, but if you add somewhere you've got to subtract from somewhere as well. The end is nigh, as foretold by certain biblical prophecies. More than one had reached similar revelations. The figures represent various characteristics.

As a result certain informations are in a disarray. The more you show interest in someone, for example, the more they seem to be repelled. This playing hard to get is one of nature's, with all her infinite beauty, favorite tactics. The more we try to find out what things are made of the more they appear to be made of nothing. Everything is made of stuff but the majority of stuff is space between stuff. Obviously, even in space the majority of stuff are separated by large areas of space. Nothing tries not to be nothing.

There are general gists about it.

You must specify which resources; but generally, maybe. It's always better to prepare more beforehand than when it's too late. You may however be surprised by any stability demonstrated by nations on a more positive note. There may not be as much pessimism as one might hope and people work hard to paint a presentable image.

Long term degradation in everything. Perhaps an elite few ends up with most of the ability to influence policy. Investment in disciplines breeds a kind of variety and allows a culturation to thrive. A culture shouldn't always be looked at as the answer to everything or headed in the right direction.
