The Problems with the Answers

Problem AnswersWe now know our world, our planet (or those who are paying attention know) is one single, large, system.  When we tweak the system, for better or for worse, there are systemic consequences.  For centuries we have had examples of the systemic effects altering a single component of a system can have.  If a person’s liver stops functioning: the person dies.  The whole person, not just the liver.  As human beings we are all sub-systems within, what we undeniably now know is, the larger, unified system which is the Earth.  The danger we face is in continuing to think and behave as if each seemingly separate free-standing entity, whether a person, cow, tree, continent or ocean is an independent entity unaffected by the other seemingly free-standing entities around it.

As a video which used to be shown before movies in the U.S. said:  “There is no non-peeing section of the pool”.  Our environment is like a large pool, it’s all connected and there is no “non-peeing” section.  What happens to the ocean off New Jersey affects Shanghai, and vice-versa.  With some events proximity makes some difference; the closer a place, a people, are to the event, the greater the impact.  Yet even small doses of a poison, continued over a long enough period of time, are going to affect the whole system.

Therein lies the problem with so many of the answers that industries and governments (and those controlling them) want to hand to the rest of us.  So many, if not all, of the answers are lacking in adequate consideration of the systemic consequences of what is being proposed.  Or, if the systemic consequences are being considered, there is a Machiavellian agenda afoot which gives little or no weight to the health and well-being of the majority of people on the planet.  It is the cognizance of this latter possibility that underlies many, if not all, of the “conspiracy theories” we encounter.

The “mainstream” culture in the U.S., the government, industry, media, seem to want us to view the systemic reality that is our planetary ecosystem only one component at a time.  We’re supposed to believe there is no critical interconnection between the components (seemingly independent entities).  We are supposed to ignore the system as a whole.  In actuality, each part, each component, of our planet is in constant energetic, chemical and/or physical interaction, communication if you will, with every other part.  Just as our body is a whole system with each part in constant communication, via energetic, chemical and physical affects, with every other part.  What happens if our planet’s “liver” fails?

This consequences of this interconnectedness has been referred to at times as the “butterfly effect”.  That is an extreme, but not unfounded, conceptualization of the systemic reality we live within.

It’s time we not only face this reality but alter our thinking and behavior to properly take it into account.  Air pollution in China affects us all.  The radioactive water leaking from the Fukushima reactor in Japan is poisoning the whole ocean.  The inordinate materialism being promoted in advertisements, movies and other media from the U.S. is affecting the collective psyche around the world.  You see, it’s not just about air, water, or soil pollution, it’s about everything.  Including the physicality, mentality and spirituality of all people, everywhere. 

Some want to see our Earth as a being named “Gaia”.  I have no problem with that.  Whether our planet, our home is a sentient being or not really should make no difference in how we treat it (her).  Our undeniable reality is that the Earth is our home, our only life-support system, and we need to give much, much greater respect and consideration to that reality than is being shown at this time.

Cures Cancer in 2 to 7 Days

 

(I have edited the title from the initial “Cures Cancer in 2 Days” after finding more sources which expanded the time given.)

The berry of the Australian Blushwood tree has been found to kill cancerous tumors within 48 hours!  Here is an exerpt from an article in the DailyMail.com  (I want to add I did not learn of this from the Daily Mail, but from a television report from a channel 7 in Australia which was posted on Facebook.):

“A team of medical researchers are on their way to finding a cure for cancer after the discovery of a an amazing rainforest berry which holds cancer fighting properties.

Scientists at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Queensland have used an experimental drug produced from the seeds of the rainforest plant, Blushwood tree (Hylandia Dockrillii), which exclusively grows in far north Queensland, to cure solid cancer tumours in pre-clinical trials.”

We need to keep this news going.  This discovery will almost certainly come under attack by big pharmaceutical companies.  I would not be surprised if they try to either buy the rights and shelve it or, somehow, try to poison the tree out of existence.

***** PLEASE REBLOG, COPY AND PASTE THIS NEWS INTO FACEBOOK POSTS, EMAIL IT TO FRIENDS, KEEP THIS NEWS ALIVE AND SPREADING IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE POTENTIAL FOR THIS TREATMENT TO ACTUALLY COME INTO WIDESPREAD USE AND TO PROTECT THE TREES!

Caution around use of berries.

Relationships

IMG_1009In Carl Sagan’s book Contact, the alien who greets Eleanor Arroway when she finally arrives at the destination of her journey, tells her: “You’re an interesting species.  An interesting mix.  You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares.  You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not.  See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.”  That statement pretty much sums it up.  Without each other what do we have?  Even on such a beautiful home as Earth, without someone to share our joys, sorrows, accomplishments, thoughts, feelings we would be so alone.  Loneliness would overtake us and slowly drain us of the will to live.  You see we are social beings.  It is hardwired into our being.  We develop, we flourish, when we have stimulation from others.  As newborns it is what we need for our physiology to properly develop.  A child who does not receive enough touch, stimulation, can actually end up with holes in the structure of their brain where development did not take place.  These holes can be large enough to put a nickle (U.S. coin valued at 5 pennies) inside and turn it around.  We can end up with holes in our personality, in our spirit if we don’t experience enough loving touch, stimulation, feedback, from one another.

Touch and stimulation are keys for our growth and development as humans.   And what about when we’ve reached a state of mature physical development?  Then we’re faced with the issues of physical care and maintenance and ongoing mental/emotional/spiritual development.

Without each other we would never be born, never develop as human beings and would find this life, ultimately, unbearably lonely.    And the thing is, we never know who is going to be the next person who contributes a word, a look, or a touch to our lives and by doing so, provides us with either the direction or the motivation or both to take the next step that we need to take.

As human beings we are all a part of the body of humanity and within that body our harmonious interaction can keep the body alive and well.  Or by dissonance we can tear humanity apart, and ourselves in the process.
