There are many possibilities such as ending hunger, fighting disease, providing clean water, cleaning up the air, fighting climate change, et cetera.

Good cooking! ...and a beverage. (apologies to Woody Allen)

Seriously, what do humans do when they have their basic needs left?
Stage a play, make a painting, draw some cartoons, post youtubes with their pets.
In short, they get creative and celebrate life.

We’d need to find a way to keep people there! The criteria of the people living in world peace are tolerance, patience, and wisdom! However, in a world with no adversity… how would we maintain this? Also, if we were in the best possible place people might be intolerant of those who had other opinions, and discriminate against them—losing the tolerance which go us tehre in the first place.

We’d have to teach people to be wise, and cool!

We could move on to other completely impossible things:

- Breeding a half unicorn half Gandalf
– Creating another universe
– Figuring out a formula to make people like Justin Beiber
– Superhuman power research
– Defeating the lag-monster
– Converting trolls into elves

and other such rubbish.

World peace is unattainable. Should that day come, I am sure something new will appear to screw everything up.

Letting nature do what it does. After all we won’t be around.

I believe world peace can be accomplished through comfortable shoes. When you are wearing soft comfortable shoes it puts you in a good mood and less likely to be cranky and irritable and lash out at people. Now, look at the problem parts of the world, What kind of shoes do they wear? Friggin hard leather sandals, or bare feet! If we ship a whole mess of comfy soft hush-puppies (not sure if they are around any more, but I remember the comfort) and people will be more peaceful. That, and comfortable underwear. for the same reasons. Imagine the sand and chafing these poor people must endure! Ship both of these and I am convinced you would have a hard time getting people to attack each other for no reason at all. They would be at ease and more open to talking out their problems. And thus, world peace.

I suspect human kind will be too busy recovering from an epic disaster which destroys the majority of the current population.

We could start by maintaining said world peace, if it ever were achieved. Seeing as how whenever there’s a war or some global crisis, the people involved all believe they’re doing what’s right, that’s probably pretty counter productive. :/

Mystic crystal revelation and the mind’s true liberation…
