If, as many believe, Planet Earth is a living breathing very much alive organism, an entity with feeling, then what it’s being subjected to is unarguably cruel and criminal. If, as many believe, technology is an invention made by humans and used as a tool to shape the planet, manufacturing reality to benefit the species, then whatever the planet is used for, is really of no concern at all.
When it comes to currency in all its forms and its acquisition, there are really no questions about how far humanity will go; answers as to the extent are readily available.
Scientific knowledge creates technology that enables tools to be manufactured, used and applied across an endless array of scenarios for practical purpose(s). Splitting the atom was a thought process, when practically tested, created the atom bomb that was used for practical purpose. Knowledge is indeed power and with its corruptible tendencies, well the rest is history and what a heavy load of history it is.
The ability to put a man on the moon and vaporize women and children is the totality of insanity, an infection and affliction particular to where consciousness currently sits in the human species. Thought from the evolved state we have developed has brought choice dilemma, dependent upon the whim of decision makers.
At each point removed from direct contact, responsibility for consequence is simply an addition or subtraction on a litany of historical repetition. The criteria simply based on what’s currently acceptable at each historical point in time and what its benefit offers for whom. Methods applied are justifiable for those who have the means, not so easily squared off for those who suffer deeds, actions so unemotionally delivered and done.
Cruelty occurs in so many ways on so many levels and can be couched in so many sinister guises, sold as for the greater good, when in fact it’s completely self-serving and beneficial to no other target than those pulling the strings and flicking the switches.
From youthful naïve optimism come’s a perspective of adult realism leading to a middle aged danger of pessimism ending in an elderly fatalism.
Currency in cruelty is a reality. What’s now also a reality is the inescapable fact that our scientific knowledge has created the technological leap that has enabled us to push a system that we depend upon for life sustainability to a point of collapse.
There were many who believed that the planet would take out the human species in order to allow all other organisms a suitable environment in which to thrive. It’s now more apparent than ever before that Earth may indeed be rendered totally inhabitable.
The bill for generations of unfettered cruelty may be unpayable. It may be what bankrupts a planetary system and signs the death warrant for all other lifeforms who can never repay the debt humanity has built on the back of cruelty.
No currency is worth that cost.

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.
