A lot of great research Slayer as usual a highly enjoyable and thought provoking read, star and flag.
This being ATS and all, where conspiracy theories abound from the that's so lame you call that a conspiracy to I know what ever helped you come up
with that one had to be illegal lay of the stuff really out of this world theories I have one that gives me pause to wonder...
It kind of fits into the lost civilizations and the earth being much older and inhabited by humans than we like to think.
It sounds kind of cruel but basically what the planet Earth seems to be is nothing but a mining operation on a planetary scale.
We mine Yellow Gold and drill for Black Gold, dig ores, and gems and minerals and base an economy off of that, and in many ways every other profession
is just in support of the mining operations.
In other words if there were no more gold or oil or copper to drill or dig the base from which the wealth then spreads to other service jobs just
wouldn't be there.
We are a race of miners, drillers and diggers, that's what we really do here on planet Earth, for as long as recorded history goes back.
Of course yellow gold makes the world go round, but oil and fossil fuels is what gets us around the world.
Yet how do you make fossil fuels? Well you need a whole bunch of dead things at once in one place!
Now hopefully no one under age is up this time of night and I don't want to cause anyone nightmares but...
A battle like say...Armegeddon sure would stack up a lot of bodies...theoretically to many bodies to bury by the humans that were left.
Add dirt and let simmer a 200,000 years, maybe mix with a little radiation from say an atomic blast and you have yourself a whole bunch of fossil fuel
(I sure hope no one from Exxon is reading or taking notes 'gulp')!
Now let that radiation mutate some harmless geckos into ravenous man eating dinosaurs, they have a tasy food source to chase around until they over
breed and then you nuke them or create an ecological disaster ala "HARRP", add them to the pile...wow, you got a vat that's simmering there that
will take a good long while to hit peak oil!
To think you thought the price and cost of Oil was too hight already.
It's an outlandish theory but you could keep your planetary mining operation regenerating itself through biodegradable things like humans and
reptiles, and those humans are so clever (not) you could even teach them how to unearth the stuff for you.
That's all a wild theory of course, likely no truth to it at all, but one thing is true, at our core, what everything is based off of is mining.
Earth is a planetary mining operation.
Whether that's through accident or design local to just the earth, or provides some other function to other planets in the galaxy and universe I
can't say (They won't let me, plus the doctor says I should stop talking about this stuff).
Got to go Icre Cream time, great post Slayer.
