An attempt to lessen the impact of humanity upon the planet initiated and triggered by our incessant predation without informed restoration.
An evolutionary offshoot that trades our predatory behaviors out and replaces relatedness with alienation.
An behavioral change in which tribal, cultural, and social behaviors are inhibited or cause literal dysfunction and pain in the local neurosphere©.
A resultant emergence of populations in which existing behavioral structures and systems are persistently rejected both logically and physically.
The manifold intersections of once successful patterns are now collapsing as the universal reality recognizes and reacts to willful perturbation of the system (ref: Susskind).
The hidden world beneath the perceived reality peeks over the horizon; a visage of the hungry ghost who would make of universal reality a buffet.

Universal Reality nods in time to the band,
Evolution adds fingers to the hand,
Local Systems inhibit emergence via the land,
Humans now must revert to understand.

The arrogance of asserting any movement that is not forward is backward is now our self-inflicted and self-afflicted challenge to overcome. We have, literally and in our ego-blindness set the geas, the bane, and the karmic curse upon ourselves.
Is it not always so in the myths and fairy tales and fables and parables?
As our vision expands, every ‘certainty’ is confounded, as humanity spins in our own imponderable state, as the expressive reaction of Universal Reality to our blinking moment of perturbation is as easily and swiftly swatted as any pesky fly:
- “And they are dark in their intellects and are aliens to the Life of God, because there is no knowledge in them and because of the blindness of their heart,” (sic) (Aramaic literal translation into English, Ephesians 4:18)
- “Is it then the judgment of (the times of) ignorance that they desire? And who is better than Allah to judge for a people who are sure?” (سورة المائدة, Al-Maaida, Chapter #5, Verse #50)
- “But to those whose ignorance is destroyed by the Knowledge of the Self, like the sun, to them Knowledge reveals the Supreme.” (Bhagavad Gita 5.16)
- “Those who imagine truth in untruth and see untruth in truth never arrive at truth but follow vain desires. Those who know truth as truth and untruth as untruth arrive at truth and follow true desires.” – (Dhammapada, 1:9)
- “Whoever does not visit the sick is as if he spilled blood.” – Rabbi Akiva (Nedarim 40a, B. Talmud)
Top 5 Religious or Philosophical Systems – Thoughts on ignorance and how willfulness over time brings loss/collapse
It is not as if we have lacked for directive nor instruction on these matters; it is not as if we cannot see – when we bother to look without lenses; it is not as if all major systems of observation and validation are concurring as never before witnessed in humanity’s span.
The only path to future is paradoxically a return to integrated systemic relatedness and the elimination of all barriers between humans.
It is our only hope for sustainability, for recovery, for achieving the level of heightened complexity required for humans to continue in harmony with Universal Reality.
Our cycles are replete with repeated failures and our own intractability in relation to our importance within the system.
How thankful we should be that our bodies and the many systems within do not so rebel (and yet, they begin to do so!).
How thankful we should be that our biosphere does not so rebel (and yet, it begins to!).
How thankful we should be that our Universal Reality either has no intellect or has no ego from which to conceive of rebellion (and yet, all perturbation ultimately scrambles the coherence of the entire system).
Humans no longer grasp humility and so it will crush them with its true weight.
- Exit institutionalized systems.
- Elaborate and iterate on sustainable self-sufficiency.
- End reliance upon technology; tool, not transformer.
- Eat at LOCAL ground level; cook only at need.
- Essential engagement with the LOCAL environment is required for homeostatic balance.
Proximity is not permission. Access is not authorization. Identity is declared, not assigned. Even * said, “I am.”
Fair Warning: I’m nice until you’re not… FAFO.
