All images are a mix of abstract paintings, drawings and photos, manipulated with various software programs, the original goal was to experiment, to see if it was possible to create a desired effect and the result being, i ended up creating many conceptual pieces for future execution of large mixed media works of art, the images for now only exist in a computer virtual world. In addition i have come to love writing, so most of the pieces are accompanied with my words, my understanding of a dysfunctional industrial society!
Tribal peoples of the Americas are naturally sociable, but are selective about who they wish to associate with. For companionship and mutual support, people naturally develop relationships with those they share an affinity with. However, only in recent times have people organized themselves in large-scale groupings composed of strangers who share little of relevance in common with each other. For over 99% of human history, humans lived within small and egalitarian extended family arrangements, while drawing their subsistence directly from the land. The foraging bands and shifting horticultural communities of the past are known to have enjoyed extensive leisure time, and have rarely required more than 2-4 hours daily on average to satisfy subsistence needs.
In order for Europe to do what it has done to us—in fact, for Europe to become “Europe” at all—it first had to do the same thing to all of you. In other words, to become a colonizing culture, Europe had to first colonize itself. To the extent that this is true, I find it fair to say that if our struggle must be explicitly anticolonial…yours must be even more so. You have, after all, been colonized for far longer than we, and therefore much more completely. In fact, your colonization has by now been consolidated to such an extent that….you no longer even see yourselves as having been colonized. The result is that you’ve become self-colonizing, conditioned to be so self-identified with your own oppression that you’ve lost your ability to see it for what it is, much less to resist it in any coherent way.(WCH)
Habitually half-naked, haphazardly covered, a physique that reflects the hard and brutal struggle with a natural environment. Physically very strong, bearing the marks of a horrible scarring which a free-living person underwent to “adorn” their body. Thus, this rugged child of the land, touched only slightly by contact with civilization, manifests the natural exuberance of ungoverned human nature.
A tribal savage, a barbarian, a pagan, whose nature has benefited neither from the divine action of a "one god" theory, nor from the aesthetic and refining influx of organized religion that an oppressive civilization has to offer.
In spite of appearance, which would make civilized men tremble - inspires envy in the privilege men of today.
Thinking constantly in the present idiom brought the deeds of ancestors into everyday life, so that heroics were not of history but current; to be imitated, rather then merely recounted as occurrences of a bygone age unconnected to contemporary values.
These are the final moments of our last days, so release and cease beating yourself into submission. With poisoned blood the demon speaks, see how the wolves devour the weak - They will not inherit. Eyes closed but forced open, bodies shaken awake, inhale and cease beating the sentient world to death - No one holds us accounted!
We love to entertain ourselves with stories about monsters, because we desperately want to believe there might be something more terrifying than humanity and there is, the industrialization of the world, of the animals, of nature - Welcome to the Anthropocene...!
A geological age created by human activity.
Instill in them a pronounced distaste for life so that they will be humiliated when reminded of their origin. When they graduate from our institutions, the children will have lost everything except for their distrust that they nurtured while in our care!
At one time we knew about the cycles of nature and the balance of life. Now, we live in an artificially created dream state that controls every aspect of our lives. The majority of people in the world have no idea how to identify and to gather food in the "wild",or even to grow their own, how to heal themselves, build a shelter and or even comprehand what it is that we have lost, as a species that was able to facilitate a large amount of knowledge, handed down from generation to generation orally, or to communicate without an electronic device. In fact, it's ironic that i am writing this here!
Your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings…are…a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a country on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the Americas, at this very hour.
At this point humanity has lost the way, to me this is evident in the way we treat the nature, we have expanded our cities with our massive society, expanded our bodies and believing that we have expanded our minds, but only to fool ourselves. We have come to almost dominate the entire planet, becoming civilized just as we wanted, expanding our human centric ideologies with very little concern for the rest of life!
The animal agriculture industry is a form of colonial violence.
A violence that contaminates the water!
A violence that incarcerates animals!
And keeps them in a constant state of misery!
Worshiping the rich is a sign of our terminal decline!
When elections can be bought, and there is socialism for the rich, dictatorship and feudalism thrive.
Billionaire warlords are on the rise and their mercenaries, who are able kill anyone including police officers. There are 62 billionaires in the world who own the equivalent of half the world's wealth, and there are many ex-military and police officers willing to work for them... When the money is all they care about there is plenty of opportunity these killers.
We live in a world where misery, cruelty and poverty are profitable, most of us may not see it, and most of us - consumers enable this by simply dependending on industrial society for survival, industrial society - the upper echelons of this society, who are the 62 billionaires of the world - A kind of symbiotic relationship formed between or within an invasive society - a species turned parasitic, a parasite whose only purpose is to feed off other sentient beings and the planet, with the benefactor being the ultra rich.
I didn't come to destroy the ancient peoples understanding of "The Law of Nature", I came to reform it!
Shaman is dead...! due to the over exploitation of the word and the culture that once practiced, which is a Tungus word, that means to "move like an animal", there are other interpretations, this I choose to acknowledge. I searched in many places and found that this is the oldest of the definitions that is used and which is also fitting for my purpose. "Shaman" was borrowed by anthropologist to describe other tribal spiritual people, since then this has been overused and exploited by people who really don't understand the true meaning, and to this day, the use of the word and the people of today no longer move like an animal, thus the shaman is dead.
The Shamans spirit is held within the caverns of the underworld, with all the others animals, waiting for there time to reemerge, but not until this cycle has come full term, so they wait in silence for a era to exhaust itself... (another old world view, which unknown to the contemporary people)
Without fur, feathers or animal skin, my cultural identity of tradition is not who I am - the ego of materialism is not my foundation from which I am established. 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, to say other wise! (a contemporary worldview) developed through the ability to manifest within one's person - Compassion!
Animals are the most oppressed group on the planet and the industrialized - human species has evolved to become the planet’s dominant organism, responsible for the destruction of nature, occupying the greatest amount space on the planet, to feed the entire human industry occupation - thus world domination has happened.
Disease was at one time nature's way to maintain balance! Industrial society - Science and technology has corrupted that natural balance, controlling disease, allowing for rapid human population growth in the last one hundred years...
This is an insight from a Contemporary Wabeno - A Contrary (social role) who is in full support of the Free-Living - A Nature Based Cultural world view on life.
