Construct of the human imagination.

Time and what ever it is that we may believe to be the truth are Theoretical Construct Created by Humans. Time is a theoretical construct created by humans for their own purposes. ... In retrospect, I suppose those fanciful stories and imaginative adventures lift humans from the humdrum of everyday life - one measured by mere seconds and minutes and years. There is one construct of the mind that built the world we live in today - industrial society. Instead of just living with nature, the human constructed the belief that our minds made us far more superior to other beings, now this industrialized world that was first thought of in the mind of a human, has now become an existential threat to all life on the planet!

EARTH IS NOT DYING. There is an existential threat, it's our own existence that is being threatened, along with other species, by our industrious activities. And we are not going to kill the planet, believing that is arrogant..!
Anthropic arrogance - Claims that the Universe is designed for humans. The ‘anthropic principle’, a kind of Goldilocks phenomenon or ‘intelligent design’ for the whole Universe. It’s easy to describe, but difficult to categorise: it might be a scientific question, a philosophical concept, a religious argument – or some combination. The anthropic principle holds that if such phenomena as the gravitational constant, the exact electric charge on the proton, the mass of electrons and neutrons, and a number of other deep characteristics of the Universe differed at all, human life would be impossible. According to its proponents, the Universe is fine-tuned for human life.

There as been 5 other mass extinctions and the Earth survived.

There is nothing more peaceful then one or two humans maybe three and many dogs is a blessing - A lifestyle characterized by abstinence, not engaging in civil activities, withdraw from the world for the practice of solitude, adopt a frugal lifestyle, characterized by the renunciation of material desire, a time spent contemplating while concentrating on the practice of spirituality, visual and martial art - physical and mental health... What is Asceticism - I dont ask for much, i dont want an entire community to be apart of, or to worship or to follow (that to me is overwhelming pretension) - I just want to be left alone!

Humanity's problem come from man's inability to sit quietly. We didn’t do our best and dont have to call out to give a poisonous confrontation, value the sober-dead over the living-drunk - emotional poison. Knowing it was a false interpretation of selfish sentiment and are hurt by that thought.

Could not sit quietly in a room alone.
Instead be the black magician.
We knew better but didn’t do our best.
We’ve got the rest of our life to do your best.
Sit quietly in a room alone instead.

Western civilization has a long history of disrupting the family unit in regions where they have invaded.

Progress and world domination has and is still happening.

It's easy to play savage... BUT where is their voice - lost the people are to the activity of feeding their faces with the flesh of misery, torture, agony and disease, contaminating the Earth and their bodies with the nutriment of subjection. Become what is despised most in the colonization and the assimilation of what was once a free-living people. Assimilate, to feed the masses to entertain the masses, an innocent slave to the ignorant, an anthropocentric worldview, exchanged for what has now become simply a notion grandeur, a dream, an honesty that has been lost to the world of greed - Became a servant to industrial society, a Nature Based-Free Living Spiritual Being vanished, now just a persona of a romanticized past...!

The greatest threat to the planet is believing that humans of this INDUSTRIAL civilization will save her!

Industrial civilization is structured on lies, cruelty and the ignorance of a rapidly growing mass of consumers.
Anti-Speciesist Anti-Natalist Anti-Industrial Society - Corporations, governments, institutions and entire cultures have systematically created the denial necessary for otherwise compassionate people to justify the inexcusable. It is difficult to like something or someone who disturbs you, this is understandable. From my point of view, having to live within a society that has assimilated my people and then on discovering that it is a dysfunctional society and destructive in a very short period of time, built on the acts of theft and violence committed towards other living beings, posing as progressive and that claim to be for the betterment of humanity, with very little understanding for the animals, domestic or the free-living. I see and understand hypocrisy on a massive level, to the point where individuals don't realize how they are unconsciously collaborate with this system. I can seriously relate to how you feel!

Civilization will not correct itself!
The only correct way to be is to live with the Earth not against her.

The idea that humans developed in a single way, with a shared “beginning” and a shared teleological course of development, is a uniquely Western idea. It is an idea that is seldom, if ever, questioned. Yet none of the other peoples of the world hold to this idea.

An incident that happened some years ago will serve as an illustration. Upon discovery of the ancient tomb in China that contained thousands of replicas of soldiers with their weapons, accompanying possessions, and their horses, an American history magazine featuring a cover depicting the musical instruments found in the tomb. the cover of the magazine proclaimed, “ Our ancient musical heritage.” The “our” in the title was to be understood to stand for “mankind.” The point here is that American readers did not see the find in China as demonstrating the unique cultural heritage of the chinese people. By emphasizing the "mankind‘ aspect, there was an attempt to co-opt the historical significance s of the tomb's content to China.

The accomplishments of the other cultures, particularly as they are distant in time, are claimed to be part of “heritage” of the West. One need only to pick up a child’s “History of the World “ to see that the history of the West begins in the ancient Middle East. The child is taken through a route that begins with Babylon and Sumer, goes through Egypt to Greece and Rome, and culminates with contemporary America. The child need not be faulted if he walked away from such a text believing that coursing through his veins are the memories of having been sumerian, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman. All of the histories of the world , he might think, have been the forming ground for his own existence .

Another illustration can be drawn from the charts made up to depict the evolutionary course of “modern” man. the chart will begin with the lemur-like primate and proceed though the apes to the proto-humanoid Australopithecus and on to the Neanderthal and the Cro-Magnon.The chart cumulates with the depiction of the ‘modern” human who is, invariably northern European male. There is never, at the end of the chart, an indigenous to turtle Island, an African, an asian, or even a southern European. Usually the charts depict the creatures prior to the appearance of the northern European male as being smaller in size than the “modern” man. Again, we can not be fault the contemporary seeing this chart for believing that northern European males represent the latest evolutionary stage of the human species.

No other people except those of the west write “history” in such a manner. They may, as has China, have a long recorded history of their own, but they do not presume to be writing “ the history of the world.” Nor do other peoples rush to collect the artifacts of ancient civilizations far from their own lands to house in their museums as the “history of mankind” The Chinese do not house the artifacts of Egypt as part of their “heritage.”

Few westerners would see the act of collecting artifacts of the planet’s people as a bit odd. Their need to document the “history of the world” is seen as a noble act that they alone undertake because others “fail” to see that there is a “history of mankind” to be written.

Westerners have gone so far as to point out the place where “the mother of mankind” was born: assumed in eastern Africa.

Adaptation is one of humanities greatest quality.
So Let's see if we can adapt to the changes of the Earth.

Nature sustains life. Hopefully as a conscious and rational being, humans need to understand the importance of Nature and keep Nature as healthy by reducing our dependency on industry as much as possible. It is the planet that has made this beautiful world possible. Hence, there is an ever demanding need globally to re-establish a coexistence with her. Also I have no practical solution in mind, but i do see the necessity for industrial society to collapse, this to me is one of the only solutions!

The natural environment that mankind had before the onset of industrialization, urbanization, and exponential growth in population was expectedly healthy and resilient. Nature was able to replenish the loss of its resources, which was very limited. After the onset of modern civilization, the overall health and efficiency of natural environment started deteriorating gradually and went on to such an extent that nature has virtually lost its natural ability to replenish the loss of resources caused by humans.

Activists, environmentalists, geographers, and biologists the world over are constantly endeavoring for a sustainable solution to restore a sustainable environment. There is a need for focus on environmental issues, and laws governing environment protection in regards to industry and corporations that have violated the sanctity of our Earth Mother.

As for me I feel that humanity should just adapt as best as we can, instead of relying on industry, corporation, and government. As in the past humanity only engages in even more activities to find solutions, we need to accept our fate and what we have done as a collective industrial society and stop thinking we are the center of all life!

The future may not turn out the way people hope it will. I feel industrial civilization will destroy itself, over a certain period of time, living condition will decline, i feel that human industrial civilization will bring about a mass extraction, and those who believe they can survive will sarcome to starvation. Some will die in their underground shelters and if they do survive, they will re-emerge to a barren waste land only to pass it on to their children.

I am extremely pessimistic about humanity's ability to remain honest towards themselves and to other living beings. I find it pointless to argue about the out come of humanity. In my opinion industrialized humanity needs to disappear so that what we have now MAY never happen again. I don't trust anyone and i am the wrong person to talk to about a hope for humanity. See the Amazon this is just the beginning, it's sad and i am very angry, because this is where my people come from. (your theory's are just that - I am disgusted by the way industrial humanity has conducted itself).

I feel it will take a few hundred years of suffering... for all living beings - this is where extinction becomes a blessing.

Currently there are fires burning in different parts of the world. The beginning of the end has started, everything that is happening now all over the world, in the coming future will only get worse!
