Post 65

Tesla says fish do not swim. They are swam.

Wordsworth wrote:

I heard a thousand blended notes,

While in a grove I sate reclined,

In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts

Bring sad thoughts to the mind.

To her fair works did nature link

The human soul that through me ran;

And much it grieved my heart to think

What man has made of man.

D H Lawrence wrote: Ah what has man done to man? What have the leaders of men been doing to their fellow men? They have reduced them to less than humanness; and now there can be no fellowship any more! It is just a nightmare.

D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley’s Lover

That’s just utter nonsense. A total lie. Utter hubris. No substance. Fellowship is very real. It is the most real thing.

What Wordsworth wrote cannot be refuted. It is lamentable what man has made of man, what man has made of nature, and what that reflects about his own belief in a tortured nature.

But that belief is unfounded and can be undone by the mind that has broken free of its own clever deceptions.

Viruses do not hijack a body. They are strands of life hijacked by the impacts of our intolerance. complacency and ignorance.

We can turn all of that around. We can uproot the scourge of our inhumanity from this earth, by slowing down and bearing witness to what matters.

We may remove the mask of our defiant tired lies and, in so doing, salvage our dignity and that of the wildlife that share this miraculous earth. It is their home as much as its ours.

And we would be as incomplete without them as they are without the harmony of our healed presence.

    Let the anger go Pierre. It helps no one. Least of all you.

    Nathan Curry you are right. Spontaneous reaction because I see almost every day here in Africa animals suffering (in other ways) and it is quite challenging for me.
    Nathan Curry replied :
    Pierre-Olivier Baud that ends now. And faster than you might think.
