I was learning about this kind of thing more than 8 years ago. It got me to a low point in my feelings about things. I remember reading that 30% of
the earth had virtually been destroyed by man's activities by some kind of world health organization back in 2004. And the same report said that in
the next 50 years X amount of earth's life would become extinct. Been down this road before...
What's happening is earth is becoming a spaceship. At night you can already see its lights come on. Slowly it will look more and more like something
from science fiction.
It'll act like a mothership and our species will spread off planet.
People get angry about this. Especially naturalists. I am over the anger. I no longer hate humanity. I no longer wish for us to be pummeled by nature
or harmed. It's a very dark world for a naturalist.
Ultimately, you have to put your guns (if you're a soldier-type) and your anger (any type) down. You have to forego violence and hostility. You have
to realize that earth is changing and the natural world will never exist as it once did. This will never be a natural world again until humans do not
live here. There's no need to feel angry about it because there're lots of examples of things that we cannot change. Don't live in the past, it'll
only keep your spirit in a dark place. You have ot embrace the future and realize that everything changes and you have to make the best with what you
have. Humans are much, much stronger than many of you think. We're not going to fall dead because earth warms up or because some species go extinct.
Humans are on a different level. When they get pushed far enough they WILL go off planet. They -must- go off planet simply because it's written into
the laws of nature for us to expand outward and populate the universe. Virtual reality, underground cities, space, wherever we go, we WILL go! Staying
only on earth's surface is not an option for us.
Stop thinking that a virgin forest is "pure". It's not. Many MANY lifeforms kill each other mercilessly in nature. Pathogens and volcanic eruptions
and earthquakes and tsunami's and many other natural destructive events clear away millions and billions of life organisms on a routine basis. The
error naturalists make is in thinking that our past is better than our future. They forget all of the premature deaths in the past, they forget the
natural disasters, they forget the famine, they forget the rampant raping and pillaging and violence, they forget that nature is only beautiful when
observed from a distance. The greatest sin a naturalist commits is the sin of romanticizing a vile and cruel nature which has no care for you or i or
any lifeform. Nature is a machine, it's not us. It's indifferent.
People anthropomorphise lots of things, including nature. DON'T make that mistake. We're NOT all one. Because something else is a life-form does NOT
make it like us. This is a classic error. It's one of the excuses naturalists have to stay as they're and not change. They refuse to admit that humans
are on a different level. Their feelings of remorse for other life translates to hatred for mankind.
Look... ALL life exploits life that's under it in the pyramid of life. Humans are no different than other life with respect to this behavior. We will
always exploit in this manner. You can thank nature for that. Nature has no care for what all this means. Nature does things, whether they're right or
they're wrong. We cannot at present write the rules of nature. They're in everything. We have to follow them, there's no choice. This cannot be
changed unless you can rewrite the laws of this universe. Don't indulge yourself and think you can. Many people have made this mistake and become the
very thing they oppose! They harm just as many people as they claim to be saving!
We are all fools in this life. Nobody is exempt!
If you don't like the laws of this universe then die. Don't knowingly harm anybody else.
Bottom line, we have to know what we can and cannot change. The serenity prayer:
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
