For a long time, I've always seen the Earth as more than just a living thing upon which we live but a being with a personality. I even went as far as
to identify the Earth's body parts: Mountains would be the feet, vegetation is the hair, wind would be the hands, magnetosphere the brain/ mind, etc
You get the picture. Do the planets communicate? If so what would be the Earth's way of commnication?
My proposal to ATS is to come up with your own Earthly body part descriptions.
This is a very literal subject for me. The Earth is called "mother" for more reasons than most people think.
We are born from her, made from the very soil and elements that reside in her. When we are finished with our bodies, we are buried in her, to be
reabsorbed and to allow your cells to eventually be something or somebody else.
In this sense, her body is both womb and tomb for every living being here.
But to answer your question in a more drunk-on-the-hood-of-a-car-staring-up-at-the-stars fashion, I'd say this:
- Her body is the core.
- Her blood is the magma.
- Her hair is the collective of all that take root in her.
- Her sweat and fitting symbol for her love and will would be the waters.
- Her voice, the wind. It speaks to all and carries our own voices farther than we know.
- Her breasts and womb would be aptly represented by the entirety of all the world's ecosystems and the sustenance provided for every bio-region.
Remember, she and we are all made from the same star dust. It made her and then she made us. It is no wonder there are countless Earth-based faiths
around the world.
