George Calin predicting the gaia hypothesis by the end. Brilliant speech, from a brilliant open mind. Why do such great minds get it? Yet the corporations and politicians fail to realize the bigger picture and the gaia hypothesis implications of what they are doing? Abusing the good science for commercial greed.

And the huge electron he notes: A brain sized duality? (wave particle duality) Apply that to consciousness and its effects on materialistic science in the sense of the gaia hypothesis. I think that is what he is getting at here.

en.wikipedia.org...

The Gaia hypothesis, also known as Gaia theory or Gaia principle, proposes that all organisms and their inorganic surroundings on Earth are closely integrated to form a single and self-regulating complex system, maintaining the conditions for life on the planet.

The scientific investigation of the Gaia hypothesis focuses on observing how the biosphere and the evolution of life forms contribute to the stability of global temperature, ocean salinity, oxygen in the atmosphere and other factors of habitability in a preferred homeostasis. The Gaia hypothesis was formulated by the chemist James Lovelock and co-developed by the microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s. Initially received with hostility by the scientific community, it is now studied in the disciplines of geophysiology and Earth system science, and some of its principles have been adopted in fields like biogeochemistry and systems ecology. This ecological hypothesis has also inspired analogies and various interpretations in social sciences, politics, and religion under a vague philosophy and movement.

When defending the gaia hypothesis against critics, aside from clarifying his language and understanding of what is meant by a life form, Lovelock himself ascribes most of the criticism to a lack of understanding of non-linear mathematics by his critics, and a linearizing form of greedy reductionism in which all events have to be immediately ascribed to specific causes before the fact. He notes also that his theory suggests experiments in many different fields, but few of them in biology, which most of his critics are trained in. "I'm a general practitioner in a world where there's nothing but specialists... science in the last two centuries has tended to be ever-dividing" and often rivalrous, especially for funding, which Lovelock describes as overly abundant and overly focused on institutions rather than original thought. He points out that Richard Feynman not only shared this opinion (coining the term cargo cult science) but also accepted a lack of general cause and effect explanation as an inevitable phase in a theory's development, and believed that some self-regulating phenomena may not be explainable at all mathematically"

this is one of the reasons i liked to listen to James Lovelock
he clearly understood our path and the earth,.
But was asked to reevaluate his ideas as they were to scary,.
a basic mass global change is coming which will greatly reduce the population.
just a part of the cycle..

I honestly don't think that we have anything to worry about. But someone needs to come up with a nano technology or some kind of technology that can do something to disolve or get rid of plastics. That could be used to clean up a lot of dumps, the middle of the ocean where there's all that floating debree, etc etc. But it's people before earth that's for sure. The earth was made for man to use.

The reason the smart get it is because they are smart. Politicians and people in power are not smart...

Di you not know that in the UK, if you are too smart for the Police Entry Exam you get rejected? They don't want smart cops, they would question the system...

Such technology released unfettered into the environment would be difficult to predict and control. It would be a disaster of a different kind for the plastic still in use to be eaten away. Think of the plastics in medical devices, for example. I believe there are some microorganisms that do eat plastic, but I would have to look that up to be sure.

We need to be careful with the technological solutions we propose to the problems our technology has already created. We tend to introduce unintentended "side effects" into the environment.

the possible blowback from mutating/evolving nanotech that you describe has been considered to be the likeliest manmade ELE out there. Imagine nanotech that is made to breakdown all plastics somehow changed to break down all forms of carbon....

Carlin was hands down a genius. he saw things decdes ago that most of us are just catching onto today.
Gaia is just an extention of the universe as a whole. Its all connected in the end...

What amazes me is the scientists that dont get it. The materialist scientists that fail so see when their science is failing. Messing with nature. Messing with gaia. Which is now a science theory, that emcompassess all evolutionary theory and all sciences, yet they are seem blind to it.

Trying to get them to see the bigger picture than their specific discipline has allowed them to see seems a very hard thing to do. I don't know how we can, but I think some are realising gaia theory, slowly but surely.

BBC Four Beautiful Minds e02 James Lovelock

History of the Gaia Theory.

[could a mod put this in the OP? Gives a better context for the whole thread]

I have a book at home called "The Gaia Project". It is quite a read and I recommend it to anyone that has an open mind(like ATS ers...lol) I cant remember the author but if anyone is interested, I will gladly post it here with the ISBN.

This book is about the conscience of the Universe and the History of our planet and what is/might be coming in 2012. (Which is VERY different than anything we might think we know!!)

Please dont bring 2012 into it, unless you are going to state why and back it up with evidence.

I have no intention of bringing 2012 into this...if you read my post I was only stating some of the topics in the book I mentionned which is on topic about Gaia and most of what has already been posted here. It just happens to mention 2012 (in the book, not from me specificaly) and upcoming changes (to spirituality that is!! not about disasters per say if that is why you reacted to my post).
It also describes the differences between frequencies and dimensions, and how Earth was created as a place for learning through experiences, etc. There is a lot more in there but it has been a while since I read it last and I dont remember every little detail of it of course.

Anyway if you want more info on the book, let me know and I will post it. If not...That's OK too!

S+F for a great thread OP

My daughter recently discovered George Carlin and has watched and listened to his entire body of work. She says he sounds just like me.
Clearly a genius.


He is right in that the planet will be fine. We can either help her out *right now* more than we ever have before or she can turn us over her knee and give us one helluva good spanking. Me? I've been on her side from the get-go and I don't abandon friends.

Make every thought and action a conscious one. Earth has no room for zombies.

the 2 principal systems the global elites accept are the central-bank/fiat money system and the ever expanding of militarization into all phases of the culture & society...

everthing else is just kook paradigms which need to eventually be eradicated

Here's an idea....

I thought of this years ago. I looked into it too. Plastic lasts about 5000 years. So all plastic is breaking down anyway. But rather than create it to last that long create different types for different uses. Like your plastic coke bottle create it so it only lasts 50 years. Your contruction grade plastic leave that at say 1000 years. So that way it breaks down on it's own. As it stands it all lasts 5000 years.

But I have a prediction. I think what's happening is that the powers that be are banking on the idea that say in 100 years they'll have robots that are technologically advanced enough to clean up everything. Like they could send a big factory recycling ship to the middle of the Pacific where all that trash is floating. It having a bunch of robots on board that collect all the trash seperate it, and recycle it right on the ship. Then when the ship comes back it has new blocks of usable recycled materials. All done by the robots. That's probably why there's no effort to clean any dumps up or the sea or anything. Just save it for the time in the future when there's robots and advanced technology where it will be easy to do. Right now it's too resource intensive. It's a net loss to go clean it right now cost wise. Anyway food for thought.

It was shown that certain types of bacteria may actually evolve to break down plastics (if they aren't already), so we may not need robots to do it for us.
