We are witnessing the human relationship with reality and our perception of reality change, as more and more people are beginning to become aware of their subconscious capability to manifest our reality. This is the ecological relationship of the Noosphere to the Biosphere, the effect of global human thought (consciousness) on the Planet, the noospheric climate affects the ecology of all life on Planet Earth.

What we experience in life’s unfolding day to day events to some extent are being shaped by our subconscious minds, bare in mind this is also affected by external factors, but on some level we can see elements of our emotions and thoughts influencing our reality, it may be in the form of your worst fears, or your most hoped for dreams, your frustrations or something that completely surprises you, but that may symbolize something you need to pay attention to. Life can feel like that, when you become aware of the mind relationship to matter, obviously environmental factors and external events are not things we can fully control, but to some extent we are able to affect our future with intention, enfused with emotions that are our imagined state with the outcome we want to see happen.

When more and more people take responsibility of their internal mind and emotional clutter, it may help create a more harmonious external world, we have created external deformities, by being unaware of our internal chaos. So to some degree we do not have complete control over our external reality, but with mindfulness we certainly have some mental and emotional interaction with co-creating reality.

When we subconsciously manifest situations or outcomes in conflict with what we think we have to do in order to see or make something happen, we still live our daily lives, physically confirming that we only live in one realm of reality and that most of us are totally unaware of our abilities to converse with the universe via intention and imagination. When most people talk about manifesting what they want to see happen in their lives, most are already usually in a financial position that enables them to do so, therefore the true test to see this work is when its put into practice by those of us that don’t have the financial resources to make something happen. I have been in a period of destitution for sometime and stuck in a third world developing country so I have been using my imagination and heart to help improve things for myself or for my pets and for other people and it does work but requires a fair amount of mindful intention and self awareness.

Most human beings think we are utterly powerless on a subconscious level to co-create our reality. We see reality as something we can only steer by physically going out into the world and changing it and mentally by logistical means in terms of the nature of how we choose to communicate and conduct ourselves out there in the world on a personal or professional level, using our knowledge, experience and skills and so on in order to ‘earn a living’ or create a family, interacting with the world for survival purposes.

Is it possible that the world is the way it is and that a system of control was put in place because we have been ignorant to the nature of our true relationship with reality? Is it possible because we have been ignorant to the fabric of consciousness, time and our true relationship to Earth and Cosmos, that this reality has become one that we do not all consensually agree to? We are seeing that we have had our human rights taken from us and this continues, we cannot even have a say or physically stop others from destroying life on Earth, others that are in power but have complete disregard for the preservation of nature or human life.

Earth and her creatures are being caused much suffering and injustice. We feel powerless in the face of a world we do not agree with, because we have not yet fully realized that we can change it by becoming fully internally aware of our power to co-create with reality.

This starts only when we hold a space to cultivate inner balance by practicing consciously being aware of our internal emotional and mental climate. We can only then become self empowered enough to manifest an external reality that we would prefer to live and experience, one that does not involve all this destruction and violence or injustices.

The mass state of human consciousness is seen through such a restricted and programmed lens, a lens of human limitation because we perceive reality as something caused by external events, a result of our actions, the actions of others and other external factors such as environment, society and culture. We very easily ignore the possibility of our own undiscovered abilities to actually use intention to manifest a more harmonious life for ourselves, our families, our communities, other species and for Planet Earth. We are so accustomed to the bright lights, parental society and over stimulation, we are still very much infants emotionally, a product of social engineering with the foresight towards corporate tyranny.

Yet within this prison that we do not all consensually agree to, some of us just want to stay there because becoming aware of one’s own power is seen as too painful, it takes away the comforting illusions and shows us the inner and outer deformations, pain and violation. Many people are afraid to take responsibility as it requires walking into unknown territory, it requires self-sufficiency, it requires being alone at times you do not wish to be alone, it requires a great deal of courage and letting go of fears that become the comfortable armchairs for those that choose to stay in their enslavement of consciousness.

Being aware of the power of thoughts and emotions as well as one’s actions on reality requires a lot of daily practice and mindfulness, for example you can become aware that you are anxious before you go outside to interact with the world, then you might witness an accident or something negative happens. We can be aware of future events before they happen, individually and on a mass consciousness level, this has already been proven through studies performed by Academics at Princeston University as part of the Noosphere project to study Global Consciousness by meaningful correlations through random data, Princeston scientists and engineers discovered that people were collectively reacting to the events of 9/11 on a sub conscious level, before they happened, their research has investigated interconnected human consciousness on a global scale (Noosphere) and how our interactions affect us individually, but more intriguingly on a global level of human consciousness. The project is ongoing at Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab, Princeton University and is directed by Roger Nelson.

Quantum physicists and other scientific researchers on consciousness are revealing the same evidence that we are able to sense future events and affect reality with our emotions and thoughts. The HeartMath institute have conducted experiments specifically looking into how human awareness can affect external reality. Or it could be that your state of mind and anxiety influenced that external event. There really is no way of knowing to what degree either is possible, but we are seeing that we can to some degree manifest, co-create or affect our reality with our minds, imagination and emotions, intentions and so on. We are finding out we can heal our bodies with the power of our minds and we can help heal other people’s or other animals bodies with mediation, prayer, intention, empathy, love, reiki, prana, chi, whatever you want to call it. This energy comes from the Aether, the fifth element that mainstream academic science denies, the Aetheric field can also generate electrical energy and is the world wide web of universal consciousness.

Our perception of reality is being filtered by our experienced perception of time, which the human brain can only really perceive as linear time. On one level it could be that everything can be accessed where we are right now, we can travel to our past from the present, we can travel to the future from the present, we can even travel to other dimensions and return to the present, we are in the present, past and the future at the same time. The human mind can only perceive life occurring though linear time, but what if it is possible to move through dimensions such as past, present and future and even other worlds or universes using intention at once. Meditation and many therapeutic practitioners witness this can be done through clinical hypnotherapy, remote viewing or meditation practices. With intention, one can go back and work on healing past wounds and letting go of traumas, the future can be perceived as something that we each have an opportunity to co-create by adding our individual wishes for ourselves, our families, humanity in general, the Earth and our fellow species. This is a more heart centered way of using the power of intention and imagination without it being exclusive to material gain.

What does being aware of all of this teach us, if we want to become self-empowered and with our minds and hearts use intention to play a part in changing a reality we are experiencing, but not consequentially agreeing to?

It takes a path of constant practice in balancing one’s self awareness of physically doing things to create a reality one would like to live in, from creating a life on your terms rather than the terms of society, to an alternative more peaceful life in a more sustainable and harmonious world, one that we would all prefer to experience and live, we need to balance action with intention, we need to be able to co-create alternative solutions together as well as individually through being the architectures of our reality mutually, practically as well as on an energetic level. We must all be vigilant of the global mass consciousness that is being socially engineered through consensual culture and media as a separate entity of consciousness that has a separate intention for humanity that isn’t for the best interests of all but of a mere few. Then we can begin cultivating the awareness of a loving communal consciousness with your kinship, your soul family, your tribe and the awareness of how fragmented and un-unified human awareness is, globally and the awareness that the solution to this is acts of kindness, love and empathy where possible in one’s local community as globally, on a microcosm level and a macrocosm level. The energetic ecology of the internal body is profoundly connected to the energetic ecology of the earth and universe, this is the noosphere connected to the biosphere.

Despite the world wide web being used as a way to thieve privacy from humanity, the internet is also showing us the unfolding evolution of all of these factors involved in awakening. Becoming aware of the power of the human mind and emotions and how these elements have a true relationship and the ability to co-create with reality, its like a a conversation with consciousness and with the Aetheric consciousness that we are all a part of biologically, chemically and energetically. The existence of the internet and how we build, see, experience, create and collaborate through it, already is having an effect on evolving human compassion as well as consciousness, this testimony is that its encouraging more unity through shared and mutually agreed upon empathy and compassion to end war and suffering of our brothers and sisters, our fellow humans and of other species and to end the destruction of nature. People are supporting one another when others need help, and support, new tools are being created to ease us away from archaic systems and when we hear about crisis on one side of the planet such as an earthquake, we respond far more quickly with solutions even if the governments themselves drag their feet, we are seeing we don’t need such archaic systems to get things done, we just need empathy, community, trust and the currency of kindness.

There are millions of people awakening amidst the Sixth Greatest Mass Extinction, we are awakening to The Silent Ecocide and the extent of its injustices. We are reacting with waves of compassion and acts of kindness to other humans and animals, locally and globally. Some of us are being shocked out of our infantile emotional states to free ourselves from the Parental system that only seeks to feed off and control us, to keep us in a stagnant stasis.

Our very hearts are reacting to this unagreed reality and it is from here that the wave of consciousness will spiral onward and upward. The courage humans are showing in the wake of tyrannical ruling is incredibly deep and powerful, many have lost and risk loosing their very lives to do so. This courage is caused by our deepest internal knowledge in our hearts and souls of what is natural law, what is truly right and wrong and the rejection of constant war and destruction. We are so tired of it, that it is motivating us to become the new bridge builders, map makers and seed planters, we are walking as a tribe, unified, arm in arm, whilst we walk into uncharted territory. We realize more and more how important love and trust is, for ourselves, for our faith in our personal intuition, our personal abilities to manifest life on our terms and for the good of others, and we are learning to put more value on love and trust in our new local and global communities and tribes of awakened people.

Love and Trust will be the foundations of this new emerging consciousness, as we intentionally path the way for a more advanced level of human consciousness, one that considers community more than one’s self, one that considers other creatures and our connection to nature, what we do to nature, we do to ourselves.

This emerging self empowered consciousness is one that realizes that the belief that the external and the material world is our God, a belief that is flawed and has only fueled and led us to this destructive reality. When all along, connecting with God Consciousness starts from working within, in order to see it manifested externally. We must be aware of the internal in order to shift and co-create positive change, it depends on each and every one of us, realizing we must take responsibility to cultivate deeper self awareness, mindfulness and empathy, creators and co-creators, artists in an awakened imagination of infinite possibilities-

Natural Capital and Ecological Economy

Uncategorized
Bee Pollenation
The word ‘economy’ comes from the Greek rooted word Oikos (Ecology), Eco and nomy meaning money, the economy was only ever supposed to be within the boundaries of nature’s resources. Eco-nomy is defined by how communities of people choose to use to  manage and harness their local and global environmental resources to meet their chosen living requirements, therefore economy, should have always been based on ecological principles to begin with.  Human life depends on goods and services provided by nature, therefore, it is our duty to manage what we utilise from Earth sustainably, if we want to keep the Earth Bank sustainable, we must invest in its future and its present invisible production of goods and services.  We can explore innovative strategies to transfer an entire economy built on principles within the Earth’s ecological carrying capacity, (within the limitations of the Earth’s natural resources).

When our current economy is based on oil, this can only mean ecological destruction, as it is the only way to gain profit and improve the economy as it is, if we transferred our economy from this destructive pattern, to be based on ecological values in terms of financial capital, we would not only secure life on Earth to prosper but our economy will be sustainable and evolve in unexpected ways.    We have an oil-based economy, most of the world believes that oil comes from fossil fuels and is in limited supply which allows oil prices to soar in the USA, destabilising the economy and there are those that believe oil to come from abiotic sources.  With this dichotomy aside, we still have too many roads and cars and although we have the technology for alternative fuels and energies, the oligarchs will not lessen their grip from oil, which is causing much of the global ecocidal destruction.

The current world economic collapse being experienced in developed countries is a sign that we need to re-evaluate an economy that has been built on short-term gain and with no acknowledgement or regard for nature’s capital, invisible goods, services and production.  This complete disregard to nature’s capital is so engrained in our perception of the world.  We could start exploring new ways of seeing nature as an investment to preserve biodiversity and the natural balance of ecosystems for the future of humanity.

Every living species of plant and animal and ecosystem has a role in nature’s bio-production which has financial value in natural capital. This is a very exciting concept that could revolutionise, reshape and immediately shift a destructive debt ridden oil based economy to an entirely sustainable and wealthy one. However, just like other similar solutions to humanities problems, it may be difficult to implement an economy based on Natural Capital, as it may pose as a threat and may not be adopted by the elite 1 percent, whom wish to maintain their power and control over centralized management of the world’s natural resources and maintaining world debt is a way to do this. The most powerful companies in the oil, chemical and biopharmaceutical industries also would have to pay the largest costs for environmental damage to natural capital, through negligence of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to the environment and severe damage to ecosystems.  The environment needs to be a larger priority for Corporate Social Responsibility. ‘The Green Economy Initiative’ of the United Nations Environment Programme, (UNEP) and other efforts are now underway to improve the way in which we value and account for nature in our economic decision-making, a new foundation for switching to an ecological economy and putting value on ecosystems and natural capital.  Recent initiatives, such as the global study on

‘The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity’ (TEEB), has resulted in a better understanding of the economic value of forests and other ecosystems for societies, as an example.   The TEEB study estimates that the world’s national parks and protected areas generate wealth via nature-based goods and services equal to around US $5 trillion per year in terms of biodiversity value. Ecosystems provide us with food, clean air and water, while forests provide protection from soil erosion, recreational services, medicinal products, and climate regulation.

The World Resource Institute (WRI) estimates the value of ecosystem services to be US $33 trillion a year, nearly twice the value of the global gross national product (GNP) of US $18 trillion.

The US is also in debt by 17 trillion dollars, if the US switched to an economy based on natural capital, it would take care of this debt.  In the same way that a banknote is a promissory note against the gold or silver that has been deposited in the bank, ecological economists are seeing how we can start to put the same value onto ecosystems and the role of species in ecosystem production, another example, would be the 80 percent of oxygen produced by algae in the ocean.  Hypothetically, the value of ecosystems that exist could regenerate local economies and increase the wealth and monetary value of nature globally, simply by ensuring its conservation and existence by using initiatives similar to the TEEB.

Nature’s ecological banking system could be a way to revolutionise our world and local economies and transfer wealth from an oil-based economy to an ecology-based economy, this wealth would provide poor countries with enough ecological economy that global debt would become a thing of the past. This starts on a local level worldwide, which would regenerate and allow local communities to have better control over their own natural resources, protecting and managing them from over-exploitation of previously decentralised management of resources, which could be prevented, if corporate social responsibility pays a tax to the natural capital  destroyed and when more is taken out of the ecosystems and Natural Capital, than is put into them,  this crucially needs to be taken into account in order to gain more balance.

This form of converting nature into capital would boost the world economy, as well as local economies on so many levels; it would also provide millions of new jobs and professions for ecological accountants, auditors and bookkeepers. Pavan Sukhdev was involved in setting up the TEEB initiative and he says that “the stuff of life is natural capital”, he proposed putting a value on natural capital in order to ensure its conservation, he says that there is an abundance of unclaimed financial goods in ecosystem services that would breathe life into the poorest communities, they are important benefits of public wealth, and it is usually the poorest people that manage these ecosystems. Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) are agreements whereby a user of an ecosystem service makes a payment to an individual or communities whose practices such as  land use or deforestation directly affects the use of that ecosystem services.

Pavan, points out that when we measure our GDP, we don’t include our biggest assets at the country level at the local level, which would be the Natural Capital of each country.  When we measure Corporate Social Responsibility we do not consider our impacts or costs on nature, or human health or society, and that needs to stop, ‘You cannot manage what you do not measure” – Pavan Sukhdev.

A community at a local geographic level, as well as at a global level, has the power to change the direction of humanity, so perhaps while governments continue to ignore the crisis, we in our local communities can start taking action to change things at this level, and we can start Nature Capital initiatives in local communities and councils.  Sustainability empowers the planet and people; this is the only route for humanity to take if it is to stop species extinction and to have a chance of survival. We have to invest in sustainability by also investing more in conservation and designing an ecological economy, an entirely new economy built on the principles within the Earth’s natural carrying capacity, which means that we make economic decisions according to the limitations of our ecological natural resources.  This would be an investment in both nature and ourselves.   If only governments would invest in conserving natural resources and wildlife conservation as they do in the world banking systems, after all, planet Earth is the bank of life, only when we begin to see this, will things change, when the value of all life on Earth is seen as an ecological asset that helps keep the planet functioning in balance.  While these important ecological values are being ignored, species extinction and ecocide will continue till we have no choices left.

There is still a seed of hope for a shift in human consciousness from a political-economic hierarchical pyramid structure to a more sustainable equal or holographic way of operating politically, socially and economically through improved transparency in governments and financial institutions and an ecologically sustainable economy, where all humans have an equal chance at wealth and quality of life. An ecological economy would allow more people to see and value nature and ecosystems, let alone, how we are interconnected to all life on Earth. There is a great resistance for this to take place at government levels, as the addiction to power drives a great fear of the loss of power, which is also why alternative cleaner energies have been avoided, therefore we are being made to persist in this state of doomed atrophy on all levels of reality.

The seeds of hope are within every one of us.  We are all responsible for this crisis; it takes those of us that are courageous enough to implement these changes.  Putting financial value on Natural Capital is a ‘Commons’ concept which would allow communities to locally maintain and manage natural capital and resources locally would also be a regenerative concept for natural economy. “a dilemma in which multiple individuals acting independently in their own self-interest can ultimately destroy a shared resource even where it is clear that it is not in anyone’s long-term interest for this to happen’’ – 4 Hardin.  1968 on The Tragedy of the Commons.

oilgarchy

Consider the disparity of evolving technologies in terms of comparing how far we have come with computer technology, wireless internet, and solar power and yet we are still driving around fossil fuel-guzzling, heavy clunking bits of metal spewing out carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other pollutants that are driving ecological collapse.

Alternative energy solutions exist, the Water Fuel Cell was invented by Stanley Meyers back in the 1980s, he was poisoned in 1998 at a restaurant, probably by oil barons. A few years before Stanley was murdered he gave a presentation on his water fuel cells, in the presentation, Meyer describes a molecular, chemical and electrical level of  how water can be used as fuel — not just as a gas, but for domestic and industrial electrical generation. Meyers was also the holder of  40 patents.

Ten years later Honda launched a water fuel cell car that also has the capability to provide domestic power for a house, this probably evolved from Stanley Meyers original design.  Honda made this car available to the Hollywood elite in 2003, now they claim to be launching this water fuel cell car to become available in 2016 to the public. However, they are saying that the current lack of infrastructure to support Hydrogen fuel cell technology will need to be worked on, what this actually means is not something a mainstream newspaper will publish, it means that the oligarchy that own the oil and energy companies, will not take kindly to the Water Fuel Cell Car that can also provide domestic power to the home to finally become available to the public market, therefore they will make it difficult for hydrogen processing plants and Water Fuel Cell stations to emerge as part of this supportive infrastructure. When an oil company earns 50 million dollars in profit per hour, they will continue to vehemently repress anything that is threatening to their Oil and Energy Monopoly, it has been clear that the oligarchy wish to control the world’s water supplies too, this could be one reason why.

Whereas, we the people would like to see a technological harmony in our vehicles and transport that would bridge the gap between the current disparity in modern technology, allowing sustainable solutions to emerge onto the public market without being vehemently repressed by those controlling patents or that have the monopoly of power.

Since Nikola Tesla’s discoveries of how to use the Aether to tap into the Earth’s electrical field, to achieve overunity and after his death, humanity has unknowingly endured over a century or more of this unjust repression of science and monopolization of electricity by the oil-garchy, electricity which should be free and wireless, yet we are not taught the real fundamental laws of physics, a large portion of science involving the fifth element, the Aether is hidden and repressed from human knowledge. It is important to highlight the fact that mainstream science taught in schools and universities  is only a tiny segment of a larger science that continues to be kept hidden from humanity.  This tiny part that we are familiar with, is used as a propaganda tool to keep the governments in power and people from believing that electrical energy already exists all around us via the Aether it does not need to be generated, it is also known as Chi, Orgone, Prana or Kundalini energy, it has a different name in every culture and what is clearly fascinating is that the Aether has been known to exist by ancient Asian civilizations for over 8000 years, this knowledge forms the basis for the health of Chinese natural medicines and Qigong and Yoga, it is also a lost knowledge in many other great lost civilizations.

Those that benefit from this scientific illiteracy are the 1 percent global elite and their oil companies, so they may continue to destroy the rainforests and oceans in the process of petroleum extraction with the constant spilling and polluting, causing global ecocide.

British Shell Petroleum, which is just one of dozens of different oil companies, makes a net profit of about one hundred million pounds an hour.  That is, every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year, they earn an extra one hundred million pounds to play with.  Governments, political stakeholders, oil investors and oil companies alike don’t feel comfortable with us knowing this, and they would be quite upset if an inventor comes along and says ‘’hey wouldn’t you like to buy this water-fuel powered car or domestic power generator run by magnets, which will only cost you a few thousand pounds and produces all the electricity that you will ever want, no fuel needed, wouldn’t that be great?”  The answer is that the oil companies would not like it at all and the people who would like it even less are the government who take in around 85 percent of the cost that we pay at the fuel pump as tax.  The executive oil directors and governments will do what they can to prevent any one of us owning a car that runs on anything but oil-based fuel.  This power and profit-driven suppression of new alternative technologies for energy efficient vehicles, is the reason why we do not see them offered for sale at an affordable price to all.  It is also why many are not granted patents or given the opportunity to be made available for public sale on the ‘free market’.

Some key government figures are arm in arm with oil companies worldwide.  Politicians and oil barons are often one and the same.  Just take a look at the Bush family, while Tony Blair is deeply involved with Egypt and Israel’s gas industry as an energy advisor, it was recently revealed that they are involved with plundering Gaza’s gas ocean-based reserves, which Israel is planning on selling to Egypt.  The Labour Party had received up to 2.5 million pounds in donations in less than a year from energy giants as a means to influence a privileged few in their environmental policies to become more flexible for energy industries. The same thing happens in the USA, Oil companies pay politicians through lobbying agencies to influence their policy making decisions, its really a legalized form of bribery so that corporations can own politics and bypass environmental protection laws, this is why we are seeing ecocide and mass extinction at an unprecedented rate between 150 and 200 species are disappearing per day. Brazil’s supreme court has just banned Corporations from donating money to political elections. This is a great example of how to deal with this high level of corruption and should be made an international law.

You could say that the most powerful government positions are mostly filled by those who either run oil companies or are connected to the families of those who run oil companies.  Their goal is to make sure that our society stays in a kind of stasis, dependent on oil and gas, as it keeps the present governments in power, and generates for them a huge financial profit at a cost we all are paying for, by global environmental destruction.  This addiction to power and money through oil sales, is an addiction each of us are a part of, even if it is involuntary, but it is costing us the very Earth on which we live.

Four years ago Scott Brusaw from California, USA, gave a talk with Ted Talks, (an organisation, that sponsors people to talk about their ideas and projects), presenting the ‘Solar Roadway Project’, which is a project where ‘green’ engineers have been working to produce solar-powered roads and cars that could even help power homes and businesses.

The 2013, 3,000 km World Solar Challenge recently took place in Australia and was won by a Dutch Solar company named Eindhoven, which has built a solar-powered vehicle called ‘Stella’ and which is designed for families, they will perform the same challenge in October this year (2015), why again? It is important to keep demonstrating that solar and water cars can run as efficiently as the conventional car, as with many alternative fuel cars, it is possible that in a few years’ time, we will probably see these car fade into the background, a fate that has already been the case of countless other green vehicles produced over the past decades.

Since Stanley Meyer, invented his Water Fuel Cell car and was granted patents in 1989, other water-fuel cars have been built by other inventors.  Just last year, members of the Pakistani parliament, scientists, and students alike watched in awe as Waqar Ahmad, a Pakistani engineer, successfully demonstrated a water-powered car in Islamabad.  With just one litre of water, Ahmad claims that a 1000 cc car could cover a distance of 40 km, or a motorbike could travel 150 km.

In 2011, Japan invented a powerful water car produced by a company called Genepax, a Japanese company that unveiled a car that can run on river, rain or sea water, and even run on Japanese tea.  It is interesting to note that the Fukushima explosion that devastated Japan and the Pacific ocean was also in 2011.

The first compressed air car model to get media attention was in 1996, though there have been much earlier models in existence, in 2003, the French produced the Compressed Air Car, Moteur Development International, and Peugeot Citroen both have compressed air cars which they plan to market to the public in 2016.

With this in mind, we can consider that we no longer need oil from the rainforests or the oceans.  What we do need is to keep the forests and oceans preserved, perhaps via an international law that overrules political and corporations to bribe political decision makers, we need transparency and truly ecologically friendly laws to protect the environment from Ecocide.

The conservation of our environment could be seen as a matter of international security since  destroying our environment in turn destroys the future of human survival.  Is not the future of the world’s rainforests and oceans, a matter of human survival?  With our growing awareness, we each individually have a pressing responsibility to push for a transition from an oil-based economy to an ecologically-sustainable economy.

Free Energy is the only solution to ending the destruction of our environment, there are already many advanced solutions in the form of alternative technologies.  Solutions that should have been available to humanity a long time ago, and yet these are conveniently overlooked by global decision makers, which leads to the simple question “why?” – to protect the oligarchy and their precious monopolies being the obvious answer, however it appears their days are numbered as the ruling monopoly as progress and demand of clean energy technologies are pushing through the adverse barriers set before them because we the people are waking up and demanding cleaner energy. The shift in consciousness is taking place and nothing can stop it unfolding.

When we separate ourselves from nature, we separate ourselves from the ability to find that place to feel safe in nature, that is a magical thing because its feeling at one with the Earth – Carlita Shaw

Pain is like the cold deep in the winter, if it is endured for too long, we will die,

Joy is a soaring moment that inspires you forever,
or makes you cry,

Love is both of these things because without them we cannot grow, neither can love. – Carlita Shaw

Then there were none

Cecil the Lion, Thailand, Tiger Temple, Trophy Hunting

 

When I was looking for a picture to go with a quote from my book The Silent Ecocide, I thought the above photo was very fitting. Then a friend pointed out the reality of these Thailand Monks that ‘took care’ of the tigers.

Ironically, the story behind this photograph and the caring human is in danger of extinction, sadly validates the truth of the statement even more.  Another reflection of the dysfunction of humans in relation to nature.  Even Buddhist monks, people we would expect from some knowledge of their spiritual beliefs and practices to respect and not exploit fellow species and nature, were in fact pushing wild tigers to extinction by stealing tiger cubs from their wild mothers, to attract tourists to the Wat Pha Luang Ta Bu –Tiger Temple in Thailand.  The temple is situated in Kanchanaburi near the border of Burma. Fifteen years ago, the temple took in a tiger cub as a result of its mother being a victim to poachers, according to the official story of the Tiger Temple, this is how they grew and expanded into the Tiger Sanctuary that they claimed to be for the benefit of the tigers rescued from poachers and allowed to live alongside the Monks. The temple grounds had grown and so had the number of tigers and tiger cubs housed there.  While there are less than 3000 tigers living in the wild, tigers are highly in endanger of extinction and at the current rate of poaching and hunting for their pelts and trade in Chinese Medicine, it is estimated that there won’t be any wild tigers left in 20 years’ time.

Volunteers at the Tiger Temple worked under-cover in 2007 for  ‘Care for the Wild’ investigations, which obtained evidence suggesting  that while the Temple publicly claimed to be a Tiger Sanctuary, the Temple operated as a breeding facility and was involved in the illegal tiger trade, abuse and cruelty and did not adhere to any real conservation efforts or laws. The operation was organized solely for financial gain from almost 1000 daily tourists visiting the grounds of the Temple willing to pay several hundred dollars to take pictures with the tigers.

After several raids by government officials in February 2015, following hundreds of complaints that the Temple was also acquiring other wild animals illegally, Thailand’s Department of National Parks (DNP) director- general, Nipon Chotiban, in April 2015 ordered all tigers to be removed from the Tiger Temple. This was a relief for wildlife conservationists and animal rights activists who have been fighting for over 15 years to close the facility down after mounting evidence and reports of abuse and illegal wildlife trading.

This story illustrates the deep level of corruption due to the desire for financial gain masked behind a Buddhist Temple. This is very significant as an example of the inherent corrupt values of global society in relation to wildlife and nature. The very fact that Buddhist monks were operating a black market for the tiger trade along with other animals for financial gain is sickening and reflects the deeper global issues and flaws in human consciousness today and how conservation laws must be changed globally to discourage these types of covert corrupt operations.

The caring human is in danger of extinction for many reasons that reflect the dysfunctional human psyche and how we see ourselves as separate from nature to the point that this perversion can infect even the purest Buddhist beliefs and practices. Buddhism is the closest religion to reflecting spiritual ecology and deep ecological principles that we are nature and nature is us. An ecological universal law that cannot be denied.

The example of tourists willing to pay several hundred dollars to be photographed with the tigers is another narcissistic example that parallels that of a more horrifying example with the elitism of Trophy hunters that pay up to 450, 000 dollars for permits to hunt big game and to ship out the results of their killing sprees.  The recent public outrage of the killing (with a bow and arrow causing an agonizing slow death), skinning and  beheading of the much loved Zimbabwe Cecil the Lion who was part of a university conservation study, was murdered by an American dentist that killed such animals for a hobby. Trophy hunting is fuelled by the human ego, driven by status and narcissism, so these trophy hunters can boast to their friends how they killed these majestic wild creatures.

While African Bushmen that are the real hunters and gatherers, are not legally permitted to hunt any animals for food, not that they would choose to hunt big game animals in the first place.  Why are our most magnificent creatures called ‘Big Game?  I don’t see any game here in killing already endangered species for the sheer egoic pleasure of murder in a time when we most need to preserve big cats, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, wolves, bears, bison and deer.

Trophy hunting is a form of elite white colonialism that is thriving, hunting for pleasure rather than for food and survival reinforces to Africans, the dominance of colonial rule that is still hovering behind the scenes in Africa. Hunting for pleasure has always been a favourite pass time of the elite and recently has grown very popular with celebrities, male and female which includes the sick ritual self-portrait photograph, ‘Selfie’, to be uploaded onto Facebook with the murderer and the lifeless corpse of their animal victim propped up next to the killer.  Trophy hunting needs to be banned worldwide, it does not contribute to the conservation of species, nor does the money involved go to be used for conservation, there is no proof of this. However, it is driven to satiate the human ego and the need to assert their status publicly.

There is something deeply wrong with the conservation laws protecting endangered species and the systems of the organizations involved such as The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), which give out permits to rich Trophy hunters for hundreds of thousands in finances, while we are living in an environmental crisis which involves a fast rate of extinction especially due to poaching and hunting of these ‘Big Game’ animals.

There needs to be a re-evaluation of the role of many conservation organizations that are fronts to deeper levels of corruption for the elite.  On a level of social evolution and human understanding, there needs to be a re-evaluation of values in human society that is fuelling the narcissistic motives that are contributing to species extinction.  ‘The Silent Ecocide’ book barely touches on the deeper levels of corruption in ‘Environmentalism’, the subject is overwhelming material for a further book. The goal of my book The Silent Ecocide  is to give an overall picture and examples of some of the solutions.  Human consciousness needs to make a great leap, if our fellow species and humanity have any chance of survival. The Silent Ecocide delves into some economical,socio-political and solution technologies that could be the answer for some of the more major problems in the environmental crisis.  We need to change and strengthen our political systems that govern environmental conservation laws, so that people with more money than they need cannot have privileged access to killing highly endangered animals, this type of archaic elitism should not be tolerated and cannot continue.

An important part of this crisis is an examination of the human relationship to nature and how it has been influenced by corporatization and austerity of politics and a lack of value in politics for species or ecology while corporations have more rights than the rights of nature or endangered species to the point that politicians can be bought to rewrite environmental conservation laws for corporate profit and for the privileges of the elite. Part of this crisis is also the lack of emphasis on ecological education or values for nature and species on every level of society in all cultures.

‘Environmental Conservation’ has been corrupted because it is lucrative, this corruption includes high level operations involving the elite and governments, politicians and many very well-known environmental organizations which  are fronts for deeper levels of corruption driving genocide and ecocide, the illegal arms trade and animal trafficking in Africa,  Asia and South America, animal trafficking alone generates hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue.

The fact that the rarer the species drives a higher price in its value is a reflection of this corruption and only speeds up the extinction rate of endangered species, this would not be happening if the system was not fundamentally flawed.  There are people at the very top raking in lucrative finances due to the way the conservation laws and systems are presently running.

The rate of financial value of a species of animal or plant that becomes increasingly rarer should be less, not more, as a mechanism to protect its survival and when their population is increased, so should their financial value increase too, this would be the way for the successful conservation of all critically endangered species, we can do this by implementing principles from natural capital  in ecological economics to make this work successfully. It should not be the other way around, that while a species is highly endangered and on the brink of extinction, that its financial worth is increased, this does nothing to help successful conservation of a species, it encourages the extinction of a species in a money motivated world, it is no accident that the system is as it is. This further illustrates that humanity treats animals and nature like objects to be used and exploited, a rare tiger or exotic animal species or plant is not an object like some bygone antique in an expensive antique shop. We need to make sure that the most critically endangered species do not become bygone memories of human greed. International conservation laws continue to ignore this simple basic fact and unless we make urgent changes to the system, we will see most of our majestic creatures disappear in the next few decades.  This repeatedly highlights the need for human consciousness to change.

The wrong kind of conservation has become a lucrative daily business which is conveniently overlooking this detail at the cost of species exploitation and extinction and the decimation of our last great wildernesses. Zoos, ‘wildlife sanctuaries’ and safari parks are all part of the profiteering over species extinction.  If you really care for our fellow creatures, boycott these industries.

We each have a duty to educate ourselves on ecology and to take a closer look behind the scenes of ‘environmental organizations’ who founded these organizations and we must investigate popular places claiming to be wildlife sanctuaries that gain a great deal of finance out of displaying highly endangered species. We each have a duty to become more aware to ensure the whole structure of environmental conservation is changed, we must demand transparency within large government and non- governmental organizations, to see where the finances are going especially at the very top levels, to eradicate privileges for corporations and the elite as a process to eradicate austerity. Ecocide is being driven by this form of corruption along with narcissism and our deeper lack of spiritual connectivity with nature and other species.   When it was suggested I probably shouldn’t use the pictures of the Monks and the Tigers, you now look at that picture after reading this and it creates a deeper disappointment and frustration because things are never as they seem to be in this world which is why the environmental crisis is a crisis of human consciousness.

The Tiger Temple in Thailand  and the loss of Cecil the Lion are current stories that illustrate this deep urgency for change as we witness the depth of corruption in all levels of politics. There is a lack of genuinely caring human beings left in this world and there is a profound lack of ecological literacy. We are in danger of becoming extinct along with every other species, because most people put the priorities of financial gain above the strong desire to truly fight for the protection of endangered species and for Mother Earth, the only way to change this, is to change the economy to become an ecological economy, which it was primarily meant to be in the first place.

Humanity cannot live without ecology, we need to conserve every other species because every species is a valuable piece of the jigsaw puzzle in ecosystems, to maintain healthy ecosystems and a healthy planet we must take care of each piece of the puzzle in this precious web of ecology that keeps us alive.

The famous Cree proverb is a prophesy manifesting “Only when the last tree has died, the last river poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize that one cannot eat money ” .
