I could do the audio track in audacity but I’m never used the Video editer in Blender.
Here’s the pitch and desc of my crowdfunding campaign.
How can we realistically achieve world peace? The good news is that it’s simple and the bad news is that its hard. We have to talk and listen to people we disagree with.
The end of Megan’s antigay picketing career and life as she knew it was triggered in part by strangers on Twitter who showed me the power of engaging the other.
“…but then a conversation would ensue. And it was civil – full of genuine curiosity on both sides. How had the other come to such outrageous conclusions about the world?”
“There was no confusion about our positions, but the line between friend and foe was becoming blurred.”
The problem: “Even when someone does call for empathy and understanding for the other side, the conversation nearly always devolves into a debate about who deserves more empathy. And just as I learned to do, we routinely refuse to acknowledge the flaws in our positions or the merits in our opponent’s. Compromise is anathema. We even target people on our own side when they dare to question the party line.”
The solution: The good news is that it’s simple, and the bad news is that it’s hard. We have to talk and listen to people we disagree with. It’s hard because we often can’t fathom how the other side came to their positions. It’s hard because of that sense of certainty that ours is the right side, is so seductive. It’s hard because it means extending empathy and compassion to people who show us hostility and contempt. The impulse to respond in kind is so tempting, but that isn’t who we want to be. When we engage people across ideological divides, asking questions helps us map the disconnect between our differing points of view. That required us to stay calm, People often lament that digital communication makes us less civil, but this is one advantage that online conversations have over in-person ones. We have a buffer of time and space between us and the people whose ideas we find so frustrating. We can use that buffer. Instead of lashing out, we can pause, breathe, change the subject or walk away, and then come back to it when we’re ready.
How we will achieve it: By developing a P2P MMOIDE the allows players to create and play Interactive Narratives with realtime collaborative editing of both 3d models and code and Compendium like knowledge base.

About the Wholly Marines:
Bhai Kanhaiya Ji sewa with love and affection without any discrimination between the Guru’s Sikh soldiers and the Mughal armies’ soldiers. His act of compassion stirred up stern criticism amongst his fellow Sikhs, who complained to Guru Gobind Singh Ji, pointing out that Bhai Kanhaiya Ji was serving water to the wounded soldiers from the enemy camp. They were especially annoyed because the Mughals had surrounded the city and stopped all their food supplies, and here was Bhai Kanhaiya sharing with them what little water they had. They had tried to stop him many a time, but he would not pay any heed. Guru Gobind Singh summoned Bhai Kanhaiya and explained that he had received a complaint about his actions on the battlefield.
Guruji said, “These brave Sikhs are saying that you go and feed water to the enemy and they recover to fight them again – Is this true?”
Bhai Kanhaiya Ji replied “Yes, my Guru, what they say is true. But Maharaj, I saw no Mughal or Sikh on the battlefield. I only saw human beings. And, … Guru Ji, … they all have the same God’s Spirit? – Guru Ji, have you not taught us to treat all God’s people as the same? OUR SIKH HEROES DESTROY ENEMIES BY KILLING THEM, BUT I DESTROY ENMITY BY GIVING THEM WATER.”
The Guru was very pleased with the reply. Bhai Kanhaiya Ji had understood the deep message of Gurbani correctly. Guru ji smiled and blessed Bhai Kanhaiya. Guru Ji said, “Bhai Kanhaiya Ji, You are right. You have understood the true message of Gurbani”. He then continued and told the Sikhs that Bhai Kanhaiya had understood the deeper message of the Gurus’ teachings correctly and that they all have to strive to learn lessons from the priceless words of Gurbani.
Guru also gave Bhai Kanhaiya Ji medical Balm and said “From now on, You should also put this balm on the wounds of all who need it”’
Then turning to the sangat Guru Ji said, “Saadh sangat ji, Bhai Kanhaiya is a God-fearing saintly soul. His impartial and non-biased behaviour towards others has led him to achieve Sehaj-avastha. Let him carry on with his mission. Many more will follow in his footsteps in the years to come and keep the tradition of Nishkam sewa alive.”
And so it happened that Bhai Kanhaiya became the first of the Wholly Marines.
