Greetings of the Season? Glory to Earth and all the species she has spawned.

Deprived of my camera, my mind seems to wander into strange places. In the persona of a timeless GreenMan, in service to a living Earth, I began reflecting on the Christmas and New Year Holidays.

Who are we? Who is celebrating? Why? What? And the significance of the date 2010?

Well, the date and the celebration refer to an event, reputed to have occurred about 2000 or more years ago, embellished and clothed in centuries of layers of glorious romance and mystery, the birth of a child, said to be born in a Middle Eastern city called Bethlehem.

Over centuries, many billions of humans of the species Homo Sapiens consider the man that grew from that child to be much more than another teacher, but a higher being, they called a god, or, at least, a son of the most powerful being they could conceive, a holy spirit, a GOD.

Songs and stories and celebrations have evolved over many centuries. Glorious song, chants, rituals and traditions have spawned allegiances so deep that adherents to what became a religion have committed their lives both in devotion and violent devastating wars (against other humans that did not hold the exact same perspective as they).

And what is the significance of all this to a Living Earth?

Today, Earth is confronting multiple crises, threatening the entire living Earth and her life support systems, demonstrably resulting from activities of the big brained, inventive hominid.

Curiously, many high minded leaders and guides advise these hominids to “Live in the NOW.”

From the perspective of Earth and the Universe, this species is about 200,000 years old (200,000 cycles about her source of energy). This thesis is proposed by curious hominids that have explored with rigor. They have also postulated that
there was a prior species they named dinosaurs.

From Wikipedia:
Dinosaurs were the dominant terrestrial vertebrate animals for over 160 million years, from the late Triassic period (about 230 million years ago) until the end of the Cretaceous period (about 65 million years ago), when the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event caused the extinction of most dinosaur species.

Given all of the above, perhaps we would be better served to celebrate the arrival of 202,010 instead of 2010. The NOW we are living in is a brief marker in Universal history. Consider that.

Consider the magnificent dinosaurs, giants with small brains. They lived over 160 million years. Homo Sapiens, with their magnificent brains, are on the verge… in Universal time, just moments away from self annihilation. The dinosaurs were not smart enough to alter their environment. Humans, on the other hand, have altered the air, the sea, the land and even life forms. They have created toxics of mass destruction and mirror viruses, actively engaged in consuming all.

Kinda gives one pause to reconsider our brief spurt of life.

Tune in tomorrow! See if we manage to wake up in time to avert our own demise.

Glory to Earth and all the species she has spawned.
