We really are a very messy and much messed up lot.
Difficulty in cleaning up after ourselves and the abject refusal and lack of said activity would be much older than Neanderthal cave mess times. We live like animals are ignorant statements and the absolute height of insult to all non-human beings. Contrary to acting like pigs, which don’t actually have the intelligence to pollute like we do, no one has observed them or their piglets dropping planet poisoning plastic shit out from, over from or in their sty, pens or mud holes.
If there actually was a benevolent God like being, it would be well served to acknowledge that free will and consciousness hasn’t worked at all on the two legged idiots and save the 99.0000000000000000% of other things that have suffered the shit we have and continue to drop.
It can only be feared that the amount of crap that we have covered up, buried and dumped out of sight is leeching into our total biological system rendering every other species dead and dying.
As we continue and encourage a continuance of human made pollution, our disgusting legacy of inflicting suffering will ironically swing back and finally clean up and wipe off our innocent descendants.
God help them………….
There’s a momentum occurring, a crackling of intensity. Pressure is building globally, macro to micro ripples are spreading out, ricocheting off every surface. Like some massive entity urging events to explosive outcomes. Breathing in all hope and ultimately spluttering, retching and vomiting humanities deepest fears and open horrors into an overflowing bucket of inevitability.
We are on a war footing, constantly. There is no doubt that readiness for an escalation is now a daily diatribe. Verbal attacks against everything have been completely normalized and the absence of really knowing what is real or fake has added to a reality of anxiety, confusion and insecurity. Hate suspicion and paranoia are aligned with population climatic and environmental tipping points. There has never been a better time to create an official reality war to justify the unofficial proxy battles that have been advancing through the Middle East and African continent. Yemen and Somalia are the quiet cousins compared to their upstart noisy boisterous Syrian, Iraqi and Afghanistan quasi Middle Eastern/Asia nations.
As Iran, China, Russia, Turkey and North Korea observe from the wings, India and Pakistan at least for now appear to be keeping their heads down and fissile material locked up but always loaded.
In recent decades there has been chatter in political terms about the coming of an Antichrist. A number of individuals elected and dutifully bestowed with the position of most powerful have been considered to fit the description. Those past candidates now pale pathetically as the reality of what has the honor unveils itself on a daily diet of disdain.

Buddhism attempts to teach that all is impermanent. That suffering arises from unique human conditions associated with grasping, clinging, wanting and yearning.
‘Holding on’ is a particular insidious level of suffering. An evolutionary self-conscious by-product genetically bestowed upon our species. Be it thought, thing and/or action, our ability to become stuck with whatever gives or takes away our happiness is a reality that has, or is, destroying our minds and any real chance for peace happiness and survival for the planet and all inhabitants.
Needs and wants appear set but are in fact very fluid and interchangeable. We have now created and designed a complete human reality based on our addiction to want which has separated us from our basic needs. Selfishly driven to believe selfishly that it’s our individual birthright to be happy, to rightfully have what I want.
Needing to be happy is a natural position for all sentient beings. Response to pain and suffering will always show that the effect on global survival and well-being is unattainable and unsustainable. Human delivered and inflicted decay and ultimate top down death will/is occurring.
Unfortunately quantitative consumption has already yielded very measurable negative and destructive effects on all aspects of life globally locally and on a community level. Family and individual consequences are measured in societal breakdown and an increasing dependence on all manner of addictive substances in a vain attempt to quell an endless and bottomless bucket of want. Qualitative measurements basically speak for themselves. Our wants are rapidly outstripping our needs and we careering over the precipice in a free fall of denial and dissonance of what is rushing up and at us from every direction. The chance of a consumption deficit expanding human population doesn’t add up.
Fear and hope are the motivational triggers for behaviour change. Humans are not collectively frightened enough, yet. By the time fear envelops us in its embrace hope will not be enough to turn the tide away. Instead we are already preparing to leave, to colonize a foreign planet. Mars is a barren planet, resembling what awaits Earth. It’s hoped that by engineering the atmosphere on our new home it will enable humans to survive as they once did on Earth. The insanity is way too obvious.
As extreme events increase and their effects on billions creates more and more fear, billions of untouched others will continue to deny the warnings. Consuming more and more in the vain hope that desensitizing and anesthetizing will somehow let them avoid what is unavoidable. Here is the only home we have. It’s made for us, suited to our biology. It’s a quality place but unfortunately it cannot accommodate the quantity of consumption carried out by a species it should have eradicated a very long time ago.
We have become the ultimate hungry ghost depicted in Buddhist texts. Shoving more and more quantity through our tiny mouths and down our constricted throats in a vanity driven frenzy to feed a never filled and bloated belly endlessly searching for some quality measured level of existence.
We have hijacked evolution and steered us all into an insane commodity reality leading to bottom up species extinction.
Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
