Pilot participants are reaching the end of the first month of the 4 Day Week SA experiment, while the search for extraterrestrial life continues. Ancient Aliens is on its 19th season and it’s a documentary based on Swiss author Erich von Däniken and his Ancient Astronaut theory elaborated on in the best-selling Chariots of the Gods?
Ancient Astronaut theory proposes that Earth has been visited by extraterrestrials (or aliens) in the distant part. These visitations had to do with either aiding the evolution of homo sapiens or nurturing the uniqueness of this planet. Based on whether it’s Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, David Childress or von Däniken, these perspectives shift.
While some of what is said may be too far of a stretch of the imagination (even for an INFJ like myself), a lot bears further investigation. There is also the consideration of a higher intelligence coming to Earth to aid our growth and protect our planet.
These last two points is where the case for extraterrestrial intelligence and the 4 Day Week SA pilot share similarities. The results from the world’s largest four-day week trial have yielded several positive results. These results include the facts that a day off helped employees to perform better in their roles (growth) and reduce carbon emissions (protect our planet).
While I am not inviting you to join me on a trip around the world to go looking for signs of ancient astronauts (my daughter and wife may not have a choice in the matter), I am requesting that you consider the possibilities. The possibility that we may not be the only game in this interstellar town and that a day off may actually equip us better to think deeper about our role in the universe, evolve our current working environment and better serve the only planet we know of (for now), that supports life for homo sapiens.
