'[OT] I'm Back with a "V" that also means "II" (Y2K'
Hello friends, I'm back from year end trip, carrying few extra lb. of to
much food... who can resist?
In Brazil I was requested to point a person that could represent this
link between the old and new age, someone that could be a symbol, or a
flag to our future.
I was thinking to point a notorious public person, a president or a
famous scientist, or a nobel figure, from peace and help to brightness
and power I could choose anyone, it was a difficult task, but then I
thought that the one to represent our new future is not from medicine or
arts, not from literature or knowledge, not even a master of politics or
religion, but some messager that could give us hope for a better future,
someone that could make us dream and believe that the future could be
better. Our civilization produced several possible "flags" to be
followed, but I thought the main flag today is "hope".
The chosen figure exist, but he's not real, instead he is a product of
imagination, the same imagination that hopes for a better world. He is
real in the minds of millions. Spreading his fingers in a "V" shape he
uses to transmit a contagious energy around his figure, when Leonard

In between several things I will miss from the 20th Century, one will be
Gene Roddenberry's StarTrek movies with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy,
DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Walter
Koening opening a window to us, showing what could be our future.
"Live Long and Prosper" is a strong message. To "live long" we should
learn how to do it in peace, "war machines" just to fight diseases
efficiently, feed the hungry and have a strong objective to go ahead. To
"Live Prosper", we should search for knowledge and learn how to make our
planet a better place for everyone.
The "V" shape could be from "Vulcan", but it also can means the second
