The thing I am worried about is How the Cumbre Vieja volcano may be effected by all of this.....
We like to imagine the earth as a relatively stable place to live, raise our families, & enjoy all that life has to offer... and indeed the past
numerous millennia have been relatively 'stable', on a planet-lifecycle timeline vs human lifecycles.
However, I'm curious how this recent massive quake-- along with the changes scientists claim have already occurred as a result-- will affect the
"SuperVolcano" that consumes almost the ENTIRE state of Wyoming!
In fact, geysers (like 'old faithful') & other geothermal activity seen at Yellowstone Park are actually the surface/dome of that SuperVolcano!...
AND, the dome has been expanding upward quite dramatically over recent decades!
Scientists believe the last Wyoming SuperVolcano erruption extinguished almost all life from our planet. Obviously, this would be exponentially worse
than our present Tsunami disaster, AND, it appears we're overdue for another such MASSIVE erruption.
Over the past two million years, the Yellowstone supervolcano has erupted every 600,000 years. It was 640,000 years ago when it last exploded.
SuperVolcanoes, SuperTsunami, SuperHurricanes, Super Comets & Asteroids, Super Solar Flares...
The harsh reality proves we exist on an unpredictable planet, in an unpredicatble solar system, universe, & cosmos... all of which we're still in our
infancy of understanding with any truely accurate degree of comprehension.
This is precisely why we need to urgently
consider expanding the human race throughout the universe-- if we sincerely wish to insure the
survival of our species. Yet, we don't even have colonies on the moon. At any moment, we could be quickly eliminated by enormous natural, cosmic, OR,
unfortunately even self-imposed man-made disasters.
As we're repeatedly &, yes, recently reminded-- these threats are VERY real & quite serious, thereby perhaps dictating a new heightened intensified
sense of urgency not readily present among our OR other nations-- at least not to our public knowledge
Meanwhile- cherrish every moment & make the most of ALL valuable moments. Try not to get easily drawn into those silly petty things we allow to
clutter, cling, & consume our precious time... remember- W.W.S.D! (my new discovery! see below) Live life to its ultimate fullest while its still
plump with enlightenment & ripe with opportunities just waiting to be enjoyed & experienced!!!
