‘Dirt!’ Documentary – Response

As usual, another interesting documentary, which covers truth, implications and many more aspects. It certainly is a trip, how we depend on dirt to purify and heal the systems that sustains us. DIRT!

This documentary got me thinking about today’s environments and I’m not talking about natural environments, but the environments “we’ve” created for ourselves to live in, such as cities, which is shaped by the human mind. Or is that natural since we’re of nature? If we look at the typography of the island of Manhattan today, that typography is a typography in which forces of economics, culture, the human intent have trumped the forces of geology! Are we really an invasive species towards our planet’s natural resources? Or are we for now invasive and perhaps more welcoming in the future, when survival from over-population is no longer a question for existence, for the powers that be? You might have heard of the ominous, globalist bible, ‘Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment’ May it sound hubristic, but can it bee true?

Aside from that train of thought ^ the documentary was also very encouraging and to see, hear peoples testimonies, from around the world, gave me a sense of hope, like maybe one day we’ll all stand up at once, to heal our planet from corporations, who seek to ‘profit’ from fracking! Deforestation! GMO foods! etc. etc. etc…

Sorry if I get carried away with my little theories, but i believe “imagination is more important than knowledge.” Albert Einstein. To know the unknown, theorizing until disproved, is half the battle.

  1. Interesting view, one that can prove to provide some nice philosophical debates. As human beings, we find that the basic instinct to survive, grow, and progress still lives strong within every human being. On that note, how different are we, to insects and animals who’ve built their own systems, and homes? To what degree do we hold the responsibility to sustain the survival of other species? I do believe we hold that responsibility, but it’s interesting to think about nonetheless.

  2. Unatural is a word that applies to no other known entity but ourselves. The only things that confirmably considered to exist outside of nature, as we understand it, are human beings. With our uniquely ordered, pattern-seeking, pattern-forming minds, we have developed the ability to organize our thought and subsequently the world in which we live, spreading the unnatural nature of order. Viewed from an outside perspective, human order is an explainable, natural occurrence just as any other behavioral trait of biological life. This topic makes me think of a particular George Carlin rant about plasitc ::

    “And if it’s true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?” ”
    Now his proposal is obviously ludicrous and flawed, but it makes me think. 😛

    PS- ❤ Carl Sagan!
