Hi, how is everyone? Good? That’s good. Working hard, but hardly working? I’m trying not to waste this day by writing something here. Going to leave my mark on society for the day. Will it be of high quality? Maybe not. But it will exist regardless. It’s not a TV show. There are no standards on the net. I don’t need to prove myself to anyone to get this post up. Whether it’s great or terrible or somewhere in between, it will be there in cyberspace and perhaps get a few hits because of my other posts. It’s either posting it here or on a bathroom stall, like I used to do while in college. Posting things just for the hell of it.
Those were the days, weren’t they? Before we all had to “grow up.” Before we all had to conform to a system that forgot about us 50 years ago. Where can I buy my satanic isolation in the form of an apartment or a condo? Where can I buy something that will make me feel better and tell me everything is okay? And where can I score some booze to forget who I used to be? What is this all for? We spend most of our existence dead and in the ground, so are we trying to overcompensate by trying to fit all we can into the short time we’re alive?
And why is it a law that we need to have our corpses embalmed anyway? You’d think it would make better fertilizer if we didn’t do that. All our dead loved ones could be feeding our garden, but instead, we’re pumped full of carcinogens and thrown in a hole six feet under. And all that meat that’s going to waste. If we find a dead animal, it’s not a big deal and we just leave it there. If we find a dead human, if we just leave it there, we’re suddenly the prime suspect in a murder investigation. Like we’re so much better than a raccoon. A raccoon does far less damage to the environment than one human does. Ten thousand raccoons do less damage than one human. I’m sorry, one “civilized” human. Humans don’t adapt to their environments, they adapt their environment to themselves. You don’t see birds cutting down trees or polluting lakes, do you? They try and live in balance and they do a much better job than we do. So why hasn’t our planet snuffed us out yet?
It’s because we’re just getting started. We have thousands of years of destruction left in our spirits and will stop at nothing to get the next cool gadget or piece of furniture. But hardly any of us ask where those things come from. They come from the Earth and the more we take without giving back, the worse off our children and so on will be. If we were a mindful species, I would think we would either turn things around drastically right now or accept the fact we all have to snuff our lights out. For the good of the planet. But that won’t happen because we are like a cancer. You never hear of a cancer stop consuming more and more cells without some kind of intervention. I wonder if the Earth sees all these buildings we’ve built as tumors.
The Earth is in the state of the average American man, smokes cigarettes, drinks every night, and is overweight. I’d say about two packs a day and two pints of booze a night. I’d also say about 50-60 pounds overweight. He is aware that there is destruction afoot, but does not see it as a big deal right now, but does see it as something to resolve in the future. But when the future comes, will the Earth still exist in its current form? A dead Earth can still be there, but it will be like a dead tree, just taking up space. Kind of like all those planets who have no life on them. Perhaps at one point they did and the same happened to them. But since we’re one planet of quadrillions (at least), the universe probably won’t care if we kill the Earth. But the creatures living here will. But to each his own. If it strikes your fancy, keep killing the Earth. You’ll certainly have a lot of company.
I’m not here to judge you, just to inform you about how almost everything us humans do contribute to the killing of the Earth. Unless we live in balance, without “progress” in manufacturing and the distribution of widgets and work on our consciousness and scorn the material world for something so much richer, the world will be dead.
