Handy tips on how to behave at the death of the world

The worst thing is the loneliness because no-one in my present world will discuss this truth with me. i feel like I am bearing the truth all by myself because no-one will admit that the earth is dying and we are the killers.

HANDY TIPS ON HOW TO BEHAVE AT THE DEATH OF THE WORLD

by Anne Herbert

Sometimes it comes in a dream, and sometimes in one more newspaper headline. And then you know. With your cells and past and future you know. It’s over. We are killing it all and soon it all will be dead. We are here at the death of the world – killers, witnesses, and those who will die. How then shall we live?

PROBABLY GOOD TO TELL TRUTH as much as possible. Truth generally appreciated by terminal patients and we all are.

Good to avoid shoddy activities. You are doing some of last things done by beings on this planet. Generosity and beauty and basicness might be good ways to go. Avoid that which is selfserving in a small way. Keep in mind standing in for ancestors including people who lived ten thousand years ago and also fishes. Might be best to do activities that would make some ancestors feel honored to be part of bringing you here. Silent statement to predecessors: Well, yeah, we blew the big thing by killing ourselves. I tried to honor you as much as I could in that context by doing the following:

TRANSFORM YOUR OWN POWER-OVER BEHAVIOR to whatever extent possible. Life system of world being efficiently killed by human habit of going for power over. Tasteful to try to profoundly correct that to extent that you can even though it’s too late. E.g. Men profoundly understand and change around relations with women. White people profoundly change in relations to people of color. Humans profoundly change in relationship to other beings on planet. This constitutes thank you note and note of apology to the whole history of the planet. I mean it has been rather great, sunsets, oceans, some art, some moments between beings, smells of fresh mornings. As we kill it all by dominance habits too huge to stop, we can thank it for the good times and say sorry by changing our own participation in the dominance stuff in some profound way. Doing this kind of change will involve confusion, embarrassment and awareness of activities and attitudes you have not been conscious of. Doing this kind of change will involve increased aliveness for you personally, a fine thing to bring to a dying planet. Be in radical alignment with particular forms of aliveness being smashed. Particular species, human cultures, styles of living are being obliterated brutally now. In as much as we all going to die fairly soon, the stylish thing to do is to align with one of the lifeforms and help it be itself as long and strong as possible.

Eschew blandness. Eschew causing other’s pain. We are all the target so wear bright colors and dance with those you love. Falling in love has always been a bit too much to apply to one person. Falling in love is appropriate for now, to love all these things which are about to leave. The rocks are watching, and the squirrels and the stars and the tired people in the street. If you love them, let them know, with grace and non-invasive extravagance. Care about the beings you care about in gorgeous and surprising ways. Color outside the lines. Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty. This is your last chance.

A woman is never at home within patriarchy. I have been a wanderer since I emerged from my mother’s body. This blog is about my intergalactic journey wherein I am always coming home. I write about women,  social justice, political acts, the sado-psychiatric system, and ecology. I use this page to display the art that I do that has saved my life and given me a way to voice my visions.  I take pictures,  I make pictures and protest signs, I am a fan of outsider art and public art.

 

 

Geoengineering and Cassandra

I could not be entirely certain about the problem of Climate Change, AKA Global Warming, despite all the research I have done on the topic over the years – how fast it was happening, how profound the effects on the Biosphere will be, whether there might be unknown countervaling forces. So, I didn’t give myself completely over to despair. We might have time to make changes, we might be able to adapt.

5792_10154006842804844_8955738303563104888_nBut the chemtrail phenomenon is a different matter. The geoengineering project, which is taking place all over the world, right over our heads, in plain sight, is conscious, deliberate, irrevocable, unfixable and absolutely lethal to all life on Earth. The heavy metals, including aluminum oxide and barium are intended to provide a reflecting surface for solar radiation, to redirect back out into space. Unfortunately, these metals are toxic to the soils and very bad for all living cells, human, animal and plant.

The risky experiment may be successful, but as they say in that  joke about about surgery…the operation may be successful, but unfortunately the patient will die.

It’s ridiculous that a small number of psychopathic billionaire bullies has been able to implement this mass murder-suicide right before our eyes and yet anyone who speaks up about what we see is subjected to ridicule and accused of being a crank or a conspiracy theorist.

It sure sucks to be Cassandra and to be able to see shit that other people refuse to see because their cognitive dissonance hurts too much. I know it hurts because I have gone through it and come out on the other side.

I can’t cope anymore with my profound sense of betrayal and the full realization that nothing I do or say is going to make any difference. The elite has salted the earth and the damage is done. The die-back of species of insects, wildflowers and amphibians and other wildlife that I have been witnessing in the woods over the past ten years, is not, as I believed, due to the changing climate, although this is a significant stressor. it is due to the fact that stupid rich white men are spraying the entire planet with aluminum oxide in order, I suppose, to protect their investment. That’s how they justify the expense. Because life, soils, water are all commodities to be bought and sold and have no meaning independent of their market value.

I decided to research the topic further to see if there was any basis for my suspicions about the webwork of persistent jet vapor trails that I have been witnessing in the skies for the past 10 years or so. It took me ten years to face my fears, and I am relatively open-minded about how insane wealthy psychopaths really are. This video includes interviews with reputable scientists from all over the world who have been testing the soil and water.

 

 

 

STUFF

As The Climate Changes…

 

Here is a list of articles and videos from such mainstream venues as National Geographic and PBS that you can view that deal with the various signals that we are in the process of calamitous changes:

The Sixth Great Extinction WaPo article

National Geographic article on ocean fish extinction

PBS Nature The Silence of the Bees

PBS Extreme Ice, the melting of the poles

PBS The Extinction of Amphibians, The Thin Green Line.

This is a film preview about the death of the ocean:

This is a video about the Exponential Factor and humans inability to appreciate the implications of infinite growth on a finite planet:

This is a video featuring George Marshall, author of the book, Don’t Even Think About It; Why Our Brains Are Wired To Ignore Climate Change:

Yesterday began as a bright, clear deep blue sky day. Then the planes began their back and forth weaving overhead, and the plumes of mist hung in the sky and spread and the entire sky became white with haze. This morning there is a low stratocirrus cloud cover and there is a fine silvery photo-reactive haze in the air at ground level. The ground level haze is very weird, because there is also a brisk breeze blowing, which would carry off normal water vapor fog. Why does no-one notice the weather, notice what is happening right above their heads. No-one ever looks up. Everyone has their eyes on their smartphones. I feel like I am the only awake person on the planet and it’s bloody fucking lonely.
