When the Earth has an itch?
I’ve been observing the Earth for some time – I’d say for approximately 40 years or so. Before that I was pretty much ‘asleep’ – yuh know, busy and wrapped up with so much other stuff.
It has occurred to me, especially in the last 20 years, how we are destroying our planet. Did I say ‘everybody’? I did NOT! Some people don’t like the word ‘we’ cuz they can’t stand to be part of anything ‘stupid’, ‘evil’ or unsavoury – so they take it personally. Well tough – ‘we’ means the human race as a whole. If you don’t want to see what humans do to this planet, DO NOT click the videos below. I am not responsible for any post-traumatic stress disorder, adjustment disorder or any other mental trauma ‘you’ may suffer! Snowflakes – get lost!
We are destroying this planet – our home – not just by litter but by all manner of other disrespect.
The Earth itself is not normally seen as a living entity. It’s existence does not meet ‘our’ criteria for being a lifeform. However, it makes apparent attempts to maintain order and homeostasis which are seen year on year. Nobody I know sees ‘global warming’ as a reaction by the Earth. Instead many tend to see it as something caused by us – through over production of meat and automobiles and planes etc. There is some research that that says that global warming is caused by independent unknown factors. So – we are like fleas on this ‘animal’ and we’re causing a problem.
How does the Earth react? From what I’ve seen, random events like typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, flash forest fires and other so-called ‘natural disasters’ cause significant losses of life or redistribution of populations. So it’s like the Earth is aware of the ‘fleas’ causing a serious irritation and reacts by ‘scratching’ them out – in a manner of speaking. Chryssst!! I have to be so careful out here on the net – I have to be clear that I am speaking of a hypothetical and analogous situation – lest some moron reports me to the authorities and I get arrested!
For flash fires see at your own risk videos below (which may well be removed by YouTube for causing somebody trauma).
If you can stomach aftermaths of a tsunami, see below.
The Earth cannot ‘know’ how many of the fleas it will kill off. It would seem that it’s reactions are pretty blunt.
What’s next – I’m usually asked. Anybody who visits this blog regularly knows the answer to that! …Ooops.. oh dear God!
Stupid: Do you work for Greenpeace?
Stupid: Are you a planetary rights activist?
Stupid: Have you got a problem with fleas?
CW: No! WTF!
Stupid: Well you sound like some sort of activist.
CW: I can’t argue with your perception.
Stupid: I don’t get it – what’s your preoccupation with ‘saving the Earth’?
CW: I live on the Earth. You do not!
Stupid: Are you trying to bully or insult me? How dare you!
CW: I’ve simply stated the facts about you.
Stupid: You’re pulling rank – aren’t you.
CW: What – because I stated as matter of fact that you do not live ‘on the Earth’?
Stupid: Yes. And now you’re about to shut me up and put me in the cage for challenging you!
CW: You are a figment of my imagination which factually means you do not ‘live’ on the Earth at all. You live only because of my existence on this earth. You have no real knowledge of what’s going on out there in the real world. Instead of you trying to find out more, you resort to the usual nonsense of taking things personal and going off track. I have no sympathy for your apparent disability of mind or functioning – because I’m responsible for that. Your ethereal existence is useful only in so far as you mimic very well the idiocy of a large number of people. You are no challenge to me and you haven’t actually challenged me. You’re right though – so back in your cage! End of!
