The good news is that the world of humans is not changing too fast for Nature to evolve alongside it. Nature is way ahead of the humans. The humans are merely speeding up the rate of extinction on this planet – their own, included. For Nature – that is very good news. As soon as the humans are gone, this world will be at peace with itself. It will exist without labelling, without cruelty, without greed, without division, without hatred. Nature will go back to its vast drawing board, as it always does, and in due course it will come up with something even more spectacular than human beings. It is a pity that there will be no humans left to appreciate the display. But humans do not appreciate what they have already and theirs’ is the destructive ignorance. The stupidity. That there will be no back-slapping on Earth in the coming ages is perhaps something to look forward to. The humans have always been too busy claiming accolades that are not theirs’ to claim and undoubtedly should Nature deliver another round of ‘miracles’ or ‘universal magic’ or whatever you want to call it, if they were around, the humans would somehow imagine themselves responsible for the majestic feat. They are that arrogant.
Humans are incidental. They are dispensable. All of them. They are not necessary for the survival of this planet. What is valuable about a human being, interesting, is its intelligence – preferably when it is being used. Intelligence does not die. It lives on, in itself. It has its very own ecosystem, if you like. Intelligence transcends death, its reach is beyond the grave. Like a great many other things that are going to start causing problems for the humans on this planet. Know that it is possible to be intelligent without an education, but an education does help a great many people access their intelligence.
The good news is that about 5% of the population of this planet can save the environment with their cash. They could extend the planet’s longevity this way, greatly improve their standing. They have no standing simply because of their wealth, understand that. It is what you do with your money when you have it that speaks for who you are, and who you are – in this world – is what is measured. These people have to want to use their money to benefit something or someone other than themselves, though, and sadly not many of them seem to want to do that. They are short-sighted. Selfish. They exist in a colossal vacuum, which is ultimately to their huge detriment. Did no one hear that the only honourable pursuit for a thinking person is the lifting of mankind from the gutter? Raise mankind above man. There is nothing honourable about sitting in an ivory tower watching mankind flailing around on the ground like a fish out of water.
Oops, Japan. Big, big oops. I think it would be safe to say that the Japanese and the Chinese are doing an exceptional job of fucking up the planet for the rest of us. How is Japan going to compensate for killing the Pacific? About 400 tons of poisonous water is leaking into the ocean every single day. Who is going to be held accountable here? Someone better had be held accountable. It is HUMAN error that built a reactor next to a tsunami. Who is Japan to cry about a tsunami washing it away? Nature will do her business and she will make her statements and she will not ever be answerable to man. Ever. He should mind his own business of raping her every facility and realise that the more he infringes on her territory, the more she will protest his presence on her planet. Her animals – every single one of them – is held captive in one way or another, under human control. She accepts that in a world this small, that must be the case. What she does not accept is the way a lot of these animals are forced to live and die.
A handful of people died as a result of the Fukushima disaster. Five, I think. Five human beings for the Pacific? No. I don’t think so. That is a very serious imbalance. Nature likes the scales to be balanced. Please understand that, if you understand nothing else. She will work at equilibrium until she has it perfected and whichever way that goes for the humans is the way it goes. Do not make the mistake of thinking that she feels sad about the plight of the humans. She does not. She is intrigued, perhaps. Disappointed. That is all. Nature is more concerned about sharing her legacy with a future she can anticipate than she is mankind’s eventual extinction. She has the ears of the gods and for now, she shares that legacy with them. Nature still has so many secrets to tell you about yourselves. Don’t kill her.
Fukushima adds to the extensive debt Japan already owes Nature. When they have killed their connection to her entirely, and their very small country becomes uninhabitable – because it will – where, then, will they live? Where will the Chinese live when their pollution and their demons chase them out of the cities, themselves? I think the Japanese and the Chinese will find out then that the rest of the countries on this planet are full-up. They will not be welcome, anywhere. Sorry, the world will say, no space for people like you. It is coming to that.
