Something I learned in Science:
When a single cell organism like a microbe grows in a petri dish it uses energy
. It needs energy to grow and multiply and become a
multi-cellular colony. It goes on consuming available resources while growing and multiplying.
The act of seeking out resources and extracting them consumes energy and produces waste by-products. Sometimes (actually, most of the time) those
waste by-products are poisonous to the organism.
Waste products are discarded as pollution
so occasionally they destroy the environment the organism depends upon, killing it in the process.
Sometimes the waste is not what kills.
If things reach a point when it requires more
energy to obtain resources than what is extracted, the organism is in trouble. It has reached its
growth limit and inevitably begins to die.
It's called extinction
Lacking consciousness, these organisms have no choice but to go on living oblivious to the consequences.
Humanity does not have that excuse.
The petri-dish in which humanity lives is Gaia
Over 6 billion humans and counting with rapidly depleting energy resources, polluting the atmosphere, polluting the water and driving the latest mass
extinction of species.
Energy resources come from food production and fossil fuels. Deforestation to make more arable land on which to plant genetically modified
monocultures not only has global climate impacts, it is extremely susceptible to pests and emergent crop diseases. Not to mention emergent diseases
for humans like ebola, AIDS, hanta virus etc.
Husbandry practices are also leading to emergent diseases like bird-flu, BSE and SARS. Throw in a little pesticide, herbicide, antibiotics and hormone
residues in our environment and diet and is it any wonder pollution is causing cancers, sickness and diseases? Not to mention global climate
Current industrialized farming practices are also dependent on fossil fuels in the form of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizer, mechanical machinery,
transportation and refrigeration.
Fossil fuels are also depended on for our entire way of life: plastics, medicines, heating, fuel, transportation, asphalt, electricity generation,
chemicals, lighting and energy for our factories and machines.
With warnings about global climate change screaming from the headlines along with energy demand outstripping supply the conclusion becomes obvious.
Humanity has reached its growth limit.
The NWO? The Government? Think-Tanks? Secret Societies?
They know what the score is.
If I can piece a global picture of where humanity stands like the one above, so can they.
They're just getting ready for mass starvation, riots and conflict. They intend to fight until the last drop of oil and be the last ones left
Is it any wonder they're religious?
Control of media; Control of Government; Control of food supply; Control of oil; Control of police and military power; FEMA; Martial Law plans; Secret
detention bases and so on... and so on... and so on.
Makes sense to me.
Long-term survival is on the table.
So I have to ask. Where's the Conspiracy?
Speaking of which, do you really believe aliens are going to step in and save us?
In their place, I would wait for Humanity to go extinct before claiming Gaia as the prize. That is, if organisms that evolved on other planets can
even make use of her. Or we don't poison the place with nuclear radiation.
The only way for the organism known as humanity to survive is to live within the available free energy limit imposed by Gaia. We either do it
voluntarily, or we will be forced to do it by nature. That is, if we don't destroy ourselves fighting to maintain our current "Way of Life".
This is not sustainable: (Earth at Night
The only true source of NET free energy is the sun.
And the only thing able to harness sunlight as net energy is life
If the force behind life in the universe is made conscious in the human mind, we seem to be doing a lousy job of respecting it and sustaining
Maybe we deserve an asteroid?
