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.
Industrial civilization is based on a clearly defined and widely accepted yet often unarticulated hierarchy of violence, exploitation and planetary degradation!
Don't need your organized religions, simply because they keep people as the good little servent-consumers and workers for the ultra rich, which in reality is industrial society and it's billionaires.
To eat an animal (a sentient being) who is raised to be eaten, and never had a chance to be a real being, is unhealthy. It's like...you"re just consuming misery. You're ingesting the sadness, a life and everything else that goes along with the animal agriculture industry, like planetary degradation!
It is important that the uncontacted peoples are kept intact, as to remember where it is that we have all come from, and what it is that we have all lost as our tribal ways, before we were colonized and assimilated, now we embrace a civilized industrial society, we have immersed ourselves in dysfunction and are out of balance with nature, we have lost much and still some of us remember, our integrity is slipping away, as the last remaining free-living people and animals become extinct, but in a natural and spiritual reality, it is a reminder of where we will end up, if we continue down this road of destruction. Ironically, this is not a bad thing, currently our humanity is in jeopardy and there will be a forced humility, one of which where our integrity will return!
