“Half of me is beautiful but you were never sure which half.” - Ruth Feldman, “Lilith”
Les Fleurs du mal by Charles Baudelaire.
Oh, I the wetly weak claw
led by his strong warm paw
walking the forbidden path
through high uncut summer grass
while hunters nose dive
membranes servants to their flight
were buzzing all around our heads
black parasol, balance and shades
Those little bells on my fool's cap
all witness to my sad defect
crowning my pale seriousness
in most ridiculous distress
The smile on his weather-tanned face
his white teeth somewhat out of place
the gentle roughness of his hands
dark soil staining his fingernails
Ushered into the forest's hold
I'm folding up my parasol
heralding fears of deprivation
in answer to my hesitation
he's parting the branches as we move
I dare a smile in shy excuse
Oh does he know the ghosts I drag
the dreadful ending I expect?
The boyish hand of this olden maid
hints secrets, guarded by her face
Does your world know my shadow's near,
the loop of time I always fear?
The fact that I carelessly stepped
into my very own, dark trap?
You stride, I'm glancing at your belt ... -
should I miss ay of the things I never felt?
The shaking hand of this olden maid
instead waters the flowers
Contemplation and teaching you how to think, preparing you for the inevitable fall of industrial civilization - Coming soon to a region near you.
The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race and all other species. They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in “advanced” countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development of science and technology will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it will lead to increased physical suffering even in “advanced” countries.
WELL ADJUSTED TO A PROFOUNDLY SICK SOCIETY.
Cooperation is Freedom!
The industrial-technological system may survive or it may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve a low level of physical and psychological suffering, but only after passing through a long and very painful period of adjustment and only at the cost of permanently reducing human beings and many other living organisms to engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine. Furthermore, if the system survives, the consequences will be inevitable: There is no way of reforming or modifying the system so as to prevent it from depriving people of dignity and autonomy.
WELCOME TO THE ANTHROPOCENE.
Humanity will not save the planet. Earth is a living entity - she will take care of herself!
Harbinger and a creative biological host, together their spirits reside in one body and this Being is the dying god conceived into flesh, a duality construct of the powerful and yet manipulative human imagination. And together this sacred trinity convey the message of a collapsing industrial society.

All animal beings should be respected.
Without fur, feathers or animal skin, i do not present myself from the backs of the oppressed - In fact, if I were to do so, I would be exploiting those who have no voice.
In a number of ways. If the natural disaster is something that happens cyclically, like forest fires or hurricanes, strong selective pressure is put on organisms to adapt to being routinely disturbed. The fact that some conifers only germinate after a fire is likely an evolved response that started with some ancestral trees producing seeds that were a little more fire-resistant than others.
Less regular or unusually severe natural disasters influence natural selection by reducing gene pools. Depending on the disaster, where it happens, and species population dynamics, a drastic reduction in population can result in a rapid shift in allele frequencies as one or two fringe populations take a dominant role in recovering the population (also known as founder effects).
If the disaster is big enough, or the species is spatially constrained enough, it might be enough to cause a full scale extinction, which could have a profound impact on the future evolution of the species that survive and adapt to fill empty niches.
Disaster Evolution…. !
Empty body, refilled the vessel with vibration.
Create a virtual space a place outside of time.
Chanting suspend time
A mystical flight - symbiotic sonic visual
Transformed ritual into a powerful spiritual construct
Participating - chanting, connectedness of the serpent thunder Earth.
Stretch, breathe chant beat into the unhearable!
Industrial capitalism steals your dreams and then sells them back to you - The product you consume!
How does one expect to achieve empathy or true compassion when stuck in a place of apathy !
“After the ancestors, the lions, the teeth, the religions, the traditions, the cultures, the remote tribes somewhere, the feeling of plants, the caring farmer they know nearby, the protein…the ugly truth of wilfully ignorant non-vegans surfaces: ‘I like the taste and I don’t care.’”
— Anita Mahdessian
Your body is covered in fur
You're in and out of this world
Your skin is scarred and you hurt
I know that you'll stand by your world
'Cause you're beautiful
Beautiful - Sopor Aeternus
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 soceity that has assimilated my people and then on discovering that it is a system of lies, cruelty and destruction 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 tribal people and 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.
