I don't have a single intelligent question to offer such a person.
But I do have issues weighing on my heart that perhaps will be mentioned during your stay.
Union, Community, Communication.
We rant, we gossip, we accuse, we kill individual expression, we shun people because they are different, it seems like every single individual demands others to be like them.
Yes this is an ancient dilemma, but how can we enter a new consciousness with such primitive hateful behaviour?
How do we overcome our fear of each other, our competitive nature our demand for "perfect" instead of being. We are competing ourselves to death instead of sharing.
How do we reach those who can not hear, see or feel.
Prayers are my last resort, I pray that my hands may be kind and strong, my feet walk with confidence, my words be loving, my ears hear the unspoken words, my eyes see what is important, my heart compassionate, brave and honest, my mind alert and not too inflated

Our greatest experiment — civilization itself — will succeed only if it can live on nature's terms, not Man's. To do this we must adopt principles in which the short term is trumped by the long; in which caution prevails over ingenuity; in which the absurd myth of endless growth is replaced by respect for natural limits; in which progress is steered by precautionary wisdom. This ideological shift is the most urgent task for science and society, for professors, politicians, priests, and writers.

I have come to the point where I hate, fear, despise these people.
I can not find that love in my heart, I know I must, so I just pray for forgiveness, I pray that Life will teach me to be genuinely kind.
How does one in the face of injustice maintain true love?
What does this mean, "come to grips with" ?
During the last 'solar maximum' period, a particularly large sunspot (54
times larger than the Earth, yet still it covered only 0.3% of the solar
disc) threw out, over several days, several extreme solar flares with
temperatures around 20 million degrees. One such flare, on March 6,
1989, was the second strongest X-ray flare to have been measured since
X-ray monitoring began in 1976. Seven days later, ground-induced
currents caused by these flares resulted in a transformer failure on one
of the main power lines in Canada's HydroQuebec power system. The
sequence of events that followed took just 90 seconds -- there was no
time for action to be taken -- and six million people lost power for at
least nine hours.
August 28, 1859 - The Superstorm. - This storm was observed world-wide and is, historically, one of the greatest events recorded in the last 150 years. Extensive eyewitness accounts and scientific studies, telegraph disturbances and the unique sighting of a spectacular solar flare make this event one of the most interesting solar storms to read about. [Newspaper Archive]
…Never in my experience of fifteen years in working telegraph lines have I witnessed anything like the extraordinary effect of the Aurora Borealis between Quebec and Farther Point last night. The line was in most perfect order, and well skilled operators worked incessantly from 8 o'clock last evening till 1 this morning to get over in an intelligible form four hundred words of the report per steamer Indian for the Associated Press, and at the latter hour so completely were the wires under the influence of the Aurora Borealis that it was found utterly impossible to communicate between the telegraph stations, and the line had to be closed. The same difficulty prevailed as far south as Washington…[Rochester Union & Advertizer, Tuesday Evening August 30, 1859].
There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health. They would be mankinds’ key to survival, they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow". There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.
The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or "Elohi". They would teach them how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is "Sick".
The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the "Earth or Elohi" beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path right with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four comers of the Earth.
In the condition you propose humans would mostly like die of before the rest of nature. Then at this point nature would most likly adapt to the harsh conditions left by humans(Able to re-evolve because, the contition is no longer getting worse without humans around.) and recover the earth. In the end we will be the ones who suffer from our own faults. Nature doesn't need us but, we need nature.

I've just read through this thread from the beginning (thank you for sharing all of this great information, it was very interesting to read).
But you have to wonder that Human's are just destined for the wrong path, because it's inherent in their nature...No, not everyone (not myself- because I do care), but society as a whole has come to a point where it seems as if it doesn't care anymore.
For example: Every single day, there are corporations ripping down forests and pouring concrete over fields, building and building (when there's plenty of vacant properties that could be bought instead and rebuilt/refurbished for industrial needs). Building of more houses because farmers decided to sell their farmland to builders for the big money they are offered, which is essentially driving out all of the wildlife, who are left with no place to go. Companies are polluting the air and water, as are individuals with use of certain everyday products, or simply driving their vehicles...and the cycle goes on and on. Soon, what will be left? It seems as almost if it's "too late" for humankind to turn around as a whole...that only some of us will, but others couldn't care one way or the other what happens in the long run, which is a shame.
Nature doesn't need us but, we need nature.
