Topics Focused on Planetary Environment, Culture, Science & Art
Welcome to being interested in checking in to this site dedicated to our Planet. This site is an effort to bring about more interest in the discovery, recognition and awareness of Planetary System Health. A place to meet and discuss environment, ecology, culture, and especially the showcasing of scientific, artistic, and political communities that focus on the health of our planetary nature.
Concepts to think about:
The indigenous capabilities we, humans, may have lost: http://www.cybertracker.org/downloads/tracking/The-Art-of-Tracking-The-Origin-of-Science-Louis-Liebenberg.pdf
How do some humans maintan the natural idigenous tracking capability and have a more ecosystemic cognition? How is it that some of us humans can 'pick' up and 'know' things going on remote from us by triggers of nature's magnetic and chemical systems? Indigenous man had all the necessary skills to survive without technology from enhanced sensory capabilities, we somehow moved-evolved away due to our change in diet, removing the earth elements (that keep the self-feeding-communication capabilities with the ecosystem) e.g., magnetites in the brain and rest of body? http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-94-007-4372-4_6#page-1 it is known that animals can detect the electromagnet fields. Well, this means we also can detect the magnetic communications between species; and possibly follow them and in our dreams or trance states. This is where we get the intiution and hints (our intrepretation of the signal) of what others are thinking. We have visualizations as well as hints in these magnetic signatures, along with our instinctual knowing of chemical signatures. We all are part of Earth's ecosystem, tied to it. Today we have some dis-ease with it by working ourselves to evolve in our technological by-products; depending off of own human ingenuity of mimicking the ecosystem with obsolenscence factoring of technological extensions; all definitely working our away from our natural ingenius indigenous tracking skills that sustain us within this ecosystem.
Other ways of working away from the ecosystem is also consumption of unnatural reproductions: We stopped drinking natural water, we purified it (robbed of the earth elements); stopped eating foods from natural earth gardens (natural soil - not man made enhanced soil). We stopped having to work hard for our food, the necessary physiological activity for sustaining health and removal of waste; in other words we are evolving into our own by-products of convenience that show signs of throwing our physiological bodies into over production of fats, hormonal anomalies, and potentially toxic reactions) and we cognitively are becoming lost in the technological virtual worlds (viewing within our technology media systems) - mentally controlled. Controlled and hungrily over reconstructing and consuming the earth.
What is the tree of Life? http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/04/12/science/scientists-unveil-new-tree-of-life.html
1. Is it true that just in 60 Years, Neoliberal Capitalism Has Nearly Broken Planet Earth http://www.countercurrents.org/queally180115.htm
2. Is the encoding in our ‘matter’; tied to our ecosystem, wherein its Nature has boundaries? Are we all built with a signaling system for systemic survival (in other words there is a very vast communication system going on throughout us and within us? Do we humans, have a wide range of built in autonomic and automatic patterns that are hedonically (pain/pleasure) controlled and reflexively driven to reinforce our ability to survive within this ecosystem, can we really survive outside it? And if so, why is the human brain evolving the capacity to override these life sustaining autonomic mechanisms?
3. Is our very "humanness" is a phenomenon of engagement and attachments. Do we survive in a hidden communications (natural not like the internet) network of relationships with other human beings, other species of this planet, and the nurturing from the overall system (what we live in). If so, wouldn't each knot of individuality be bound to the next, creating the social fabric in which our very person-hood has true existence in this overall ecosystem? Wouldn't isolating an individual then just be is an illusion? If we unravel the social contacts wouldn't the knots disappear?
4. We have barely taken a step on the stairway to the heavens. We are only really suborbital, not really ready for deep space.
The Egyptian historical concept Maat helped me realize our responsibility and position within this ecosystem.
Universal order is the very balancing act within nature, and synergism (syntropism) cross nurturing is key within this site. Enjoy.
The below prose is inspired by the though of mutagenesis:
Today Space biosciences is looking at these aspects of synthetic biology for enabling humans to become spacefaring. See Craig Venter's talk to NASA on this subject. Synthetic Biology - Human Genome
It merely started with a serpent’s tale,
beguiling us to spy him spiraled in the tree.
A tree that hath no permanent mass nor scale
Yet, bearing fruits blessed by an endless sea
A tree that we call life
With its ebbing and flowing mass
That tides and pulls as if in strife
to evolve again, and then pass
A mere snakes subtle endless tale,
wherein he continually bites down upon his tail.
An infinite loop containing stars and cosmic dust
transient and never just…
Spun out of the calm
Is this endless psalm:
“Awareness is the succulent juice of its fruits
savor it to the seeds and core
recognition is when you prune it
knowing every branch will continually bear more”.
