Impending Famine: a NOTE with LINKS following...

Our ignorant growth has triggered Changes in the seasons that have radically reduced

The Engines of Life

The engines of life are the interfaces where the ancient patterns of wind, water, and heat are fed upon by microbes, and so on up the food chain.

Ultimately, the movements of all land and sea creatures, and the plants too, are tuned and timed to move with, be fed on, and feed from, the bounty of these engines of life.

We have done the impossible: We have unhinged The engines of life on land, in the sea, and in the air. Nature is reeling. All life on the planet is reeling. Fish are turning belly up in the world's oceans, and birds are falling from the skies.

In brief, humans have changed the nature of natural selection. We have replaced natural selectors with human selectors. Our social-based selectors first stripped the plant of the complexity it's living creatures created, draining the land, sea, and air of it's life. Life now is allowed to exist if it fits the definitions and needs of our social standards, which puts corporate profit and consumer consumption before our natural environment.

The by-products of our consuming the bulk of the life on this planet, while unbalancing the the remaining eco-systems that support life has caught up with us: nature is drowning in our shit.

More precisely, nature is not just drowning in our shit, composed of our industrial and biological waste, it has been suffocated by Our Farting as our massive outgassing, the by-product of humans digesting the life on our planet. Our massive stream of farts and shit have long ago altered the fundamental flow patterns of wind and water that are the foundations of the engines of life on this planet. Our eating everything on the planet, and farting it out, has severely damaged the foundations of life on this planet.

Human's social selectors have failed. We have failed to use our perception wisely, to live up to the gift of conciseness.

Our greed and ignorance are no longer limited to just destroying local river valleys, or devastating whole regions, as in the ancient past. Our ignorance, now supercharged by science, HAS PROVED ITSELF capable of devastating our planet's fundamental engines of life, and it is doing so right now.

Our ability to form nature in our own image, and judge it by our own standards is power, not wisdom. OUR ABILITY TO REFLECT NATURE IS THE BASIS OF OUR POWER. We have been very unwise, if not outright evil, with this power. Pursuing material power, rather than WISDOM, with our conciseness, we have wasted both our position as the focus of our planet's conscious evolution, and have severely damaged our environment.

We are the pornographers of nature.

The social processes that guide our interaction with nature have failed to reflect the patterns and wisdom of nature. In fact, we have made nature our bitch. This is a big mistake, but not just in abstract, spiritual terms.

Everything that puts itself before the wisdom of the patterns and wisdom of nature cease to exist.

Citidiots beware.
