From an evolutionary perspective of species maturation, human beings are still in their teen-aged years, running around like self-absorbed, entitled little assholes, sloppy-drunk with desire; raping, pillaging and puking all over paradise. We’ve made one hell of an ugly mess of this once beautiful world, and if we don’t get our shit together soon, Mama’s gonna kick us out of the house.
To be clear, in Gaia’s view, most of the solutions you might see offered through these various links do not go far enough in cleaning up the mess that humans have created. Much more is needed. And Gaia knows that much more is possible. For as much as she simply cannot stand the destructiveness of human beings, she nevertheless has kept us around, not out of pity or some sort of loyalty to our species, but because she truly enjoys our human cleverness and our ability to manifest even more beauty in the world when we so choose.
Gaia knows that we are capable of coming up with unique, fantastical solutions to the problems we’ve created. If only enough of us would care enough to apply our amazing ingenuity and downright genius towards creating these desperately needed solutions.
