I would like to appeal to our survival instinct for a moment…

Looking at earth’s situation from another angle, we should be concerned about our future survival, due to our parasitc behaviour!

Inspite of having the highest level of intelligence on the planet – contrary to being the earth’s caretakers, we have rather abused the earth and we have behaved like a disease or a parasitic infection.

We have introduced toxins and distress to earth, instead of benefits

We have taken away from, rather than added to earth with our presence

and despite obvious consequequences to our behaviour, we have not changed our ways enough to make a difference to earth’s health yet.

This is why our existence on earth in in danger…

If an animal or ourselves discover parasites living on or in our bodies that harm us, we generally take action against those organims. It’s nothing personal against the parasite. Even though we know the parasites have a desire to live, we would still take action, if they were harming us.  There are various ways to get rid of parasites, as nature shows us…

There is the…eh…Physcial destruction method… 🙂

…crushing one’s parasites…

 

 

Taking a bath in mud

(…Suffocating one’s parasites with mud…)

 

Taking a bath or shower in water

(…drowning or washing away one’s parasites…)

Using one parasite to get rid of another

(…using an assassin…)

Tickbirds eat ticks off the big game, who sit patiently still while their parasites are removed…

Earth is also a living organism and we are behaving like earth’s parasites, but we are choosing to be like that…we not not have to live this way… we can change, but we have to do it quickly…there is no time!

I like this analogy from “Dirt: The Movie”. Please have look…

We better hope that a “United Organization of Organisms” isn’t organised by earth’s other inhabitants anytime soon! After all, we have been abusing them all for a long long time…

If the plants animals and other organisms who share earth with us could choose…I think we would definatley be voted out, and we would likely get evicted from Earth by nature’s own special methods…

The Physical destruction method (earthquakes)

…crushing one’s parasites…

 

Taking a bath in mud

(…Suffocating one’s parasites with mud…)

 

Taking a bath or shower in water

(…drowing or washing away one’s parasites…)

 

Using one parasite to get rid of another

(…hiring an assassin…)

 

In the case of diseases, bacteria or viruses use the host for their food and reproduction, before poinsoning or destroying the host….sound familiar?

Human population representation

 

 Perhaps there are even other methods which I haven’t thought of here…

So, I really hope that we come to see how our behavior has influened this beautiful planet negatively, and that we choose to change our culture very quickly.

By doing so, we might avert or lessen some of the more drastic cleaning processing which have already been scheduled.

Mother Earth is a mother, after all – and mothers have an enormous capacity for forgiveness

I am not an anarchist or into using physical violence as a a radical form of psychotherapy…and I don’t think that the whole movie of Fight Club sends us an inspirational message – after all the main character had a multi-personality disorder; but there are so many factors that many of us can identify with, especially our growing dis-ease with our own consumerism.

when I saw this film, the thrill of our main character’s freedom from materialistic slavery hit a spot in my conciousness which gave me secret delight 🙂

I loved the way they introduced us to the main character’s apartment…(before he blew it up with home-made explosives^^)…

“Like everyone else, I had become a slave to the IKEA nesting instinct. If I saw something clever like the coffee table in the shape of a yin and yang,I had to have it. I would flip through catalogs and wonder, “What kind of dining set defines me as a person?” I had it all. Even the glass dishes with tiny bubbles and imperfections, proof they were crafted by the honest, simple, hard-working indigenous peoples of …wherever.”

and there are many memorable quotes from the film ….Here are some of my favourites:

Q: “Do you know what a duvet is?

 
 A: It’s a comforter…
 
Q: It’s a blanket. Just a blanket. Now why do guys like you and me know what a duvet is? Is this essential to our survival, in the hunter-gatherer sense of the word? No. What are we then? 
 
 A: …Consumers?
 
Q: “Right. We’re consumers. We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don’t concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy’s name on my underwear.”

….

…..“I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars.”

“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.”

“We’re the middle children of history…. no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives.”

“We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”

The Bottom line is –

“The things you own end up owning you”

Hey….^^

How about emptying  our desires to be “millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars”

The point is…

If

“You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet…..”

then, who are we really then?

…”It is only after we’ve lost everything that we are free to do anything…”
