"This place is curious, this place is a non place. It’s not located in some secret corner of the soul, since there are no secrets; it’s actually devouring the entire inside, projecting itself on the outside… gaining substance, encouraging stings, thirst and hunger all around."
- Natura Principia
At a certain point in our past, nature
had created sufficient conditions for creation of life. As we understand, the
first organic molecules had been created, and with their transformation and
organization the first tissues had been formed, hence the formation of organs and
creation of more complex creatures.
Throughout the planet’s history many
cataclysmic events had occurred, which had impacted the fragile balance of the
planet, thus harming life on a large scale. During these events it’s estimated
that around 97% of all life forms that had ever existed on Earth had been irreversibly
destroyed, so what we see today is just a glimpse of all species that once
inhabited our home world. After these terrifying occurrences, the Earth had
shown a tendency toward reaching an equilibrium, with another words to seek and
create balance in its total environment.
By studying the behavior of the
planet, we’ve come to realize that it represents unity between: atmosphere,
lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and its inner composition down to the
planet’s core. This altogether system has represented a single evolutionary
undividable and interdependent organism. The planet tends to seek physical and
chemical environment optimal for creation and development of life, by
regulating the conditions in an individual or global homeostasis. It’s safe to
say that life has been confined within its safekeeping.
It’s also safe to say that after
creation, there hasn’t been anything more narcissistic than man. Our mindset
has taught us that we’re the most spectacular of all life forms, since we
haven’t met anyone like us. This has given us the right to rule by our choices
and desires. And we desire to consume nature, our idea of our connection with
nature is what we can take for ourselves. We consume just to consume, we
console each other that we’re hungry. We show fire in our passions to satisfy
our lusts for resources and energy. We're unable to set a path of unity with
nature, which doesn’t include our greed, hunger and thirst for conquest.
Humanity comes in waves, and our intensity increases as we increase in numbers.
However, our growth in number hasn’t been accompanied by our growth in
intelligence. We expand with a tendency to take more and more for ourselves
from the environment, by feeding on its beauty and innocence.
So does this seem like fun? Fun it is,
but we recede nature’s environment to a point in time, when for the first time
in the history of our home world a global cataclysm will commence from a single
specie which had been created by the Earth. We aim not to condemn only ourselves
in hunger, dire suffering and eventually extinction, we condemn all life. But
let’s not forget that our planet shows tendency toward equilibrium and
merciless regeneration, and then, all life species inevitably suffer.
So let's stop for a minute and take a breath of unpolluted air. Let's ask ourselves... do we expand in nature for our thirst of conquest, or do we expand to satisfy our need of curiosity? We ought to realize that we don't need mirrors, because after some time, the image speaks while the man stands in silence. We need other creatures...
