Syndrome of Excess: The Devolution has Begun

Updated: April 22, 2017, Earth Day.

It seems everything else in nature other than the thing infecting her (human beings) is aware we are fucked if more people don't wake up. Even our biology suspects something cataclysmic is in the works and is panicking, as evidenced by the confused state of affairs our bodies have become. 

This is not a good situation at all, as barbaric, opportunistic behavior is born from confusion like a mutant parasitic monster not even a mother could love.

The parasite is turning on itself too like an army of cancer that's figured out its host's cellular creed and is hacking ceaselessly at the security switch. It won't stop until it figures out how to turn the switch off permanently, steal the genetic code and devour everything, laying the entire human race to waste. Extinction.

The seeds of this extinction have taken root and are many, from cancer agencies forecasting a dramatic 40% surge in carcinomas over the next 15 years, to all sorts of other diseases, including ones we thought had been either eradicated or nearly so. We are entering an era of renewed epidemics, including an epidemic rise in a deadly cluster of conditions known collectively as Syndrome X.

The metabolic signs of Syndrome X include hypertension, excessive blood sugar, high triglyceride levels or otherwise abnormal cholesterol values, as well as an expanded midsection. A combination of at least 3 of these risk factors leads to serious illness and premature death.

It's a syndrome of excess, which interestingly is also the same syndrome that is ushering in our premature demise on a global scale. We take too much from each other, whether it's the individuals we interact with, the social groups we belong to, or the nations we spring from. Not only that, we take too much from the animal kingdom we rely on and the natural resources that sustain us. 

And we don't return the favor. 

We take and take and take, gobbling everything up like a mindless Pac-Man leaving nothing but darkness in its wake. And like our other insatiable appetites and expanding midsections, our greed is starting to extend beyond the limits of what is attractive. I imagine from the cosmos humankind is beginning to look pretty ugly right about now, like a former beauty queen who has fallen out of favor with good health in exchange for a lifestyle of vodka, cigarettes and Big Macs.

We've gotten so greedy that we are no longer satisfied with just gorging on the earth until there is nothing left. We now have our hungry eyes set on colonization and exploitation of other planets. And we're not ready. We should fix our own home before we go rocketing off to invade someone else's. 

Our technology is outpacing our humanity. 

That said, no one should be opposed to space exploration for the sake of science, discovery and opening the collective consciousness to new possibilities; however, when the desire to go into space is driven by the same greed that is weakening our planet to the point where we may cause our own extinction, the thought of space "recreation" becomes a tad alarming

The natural world is also alarmed, as evidenced by some unusual phenomena we've been seeing, such as planes falling out of the sky for no clear-cut reason, or in the mysterious case of Malaysian Flight 370, disappearing from the sky altogether, as well as strange, unpleasant, ear-piercing sounds or "skyquakes" being recorded around the globe with no satisfactory explanation. And if you want a more extensive list of other recognized bizarre phenomena check this out: 25 Strange Phenomena within this Decade that have yet to be Explained.

With regards to our technology outpacing our humanity, as an illustration, take Sir Richard Branson and people of his ilk. Many admire and are in awe of the Uber rich, particularly someone like Branson, with his fancy, over-the-top island-lifestyle and "philanthropy" as he exploits Man and Nature (damn trees always getting in the way) for his own ends.

Some admire him almost to the point of worship, but his self-serving philanthropy doesn't negate his greed or narcissism, or that he is a spiritually empty man interested in satisfying his own hedonistic desires above all else, much like the rest of the filthy one percent (source). These flawed mortals are not content with just raping, pillaging and subjugating this planet, either; now the animal has its insatiable desires directed towards space. 

Learn to control your sadistic gluttony for wealth, power and endless sexual gratification (a gluttony which is little more than an unregulated base evolutionary urge that more evolved members of humankind or not controlled by) before you attempt to advance up the evolution ladder and branch out into the matrix of existence

We don't want your megalomaniacal greed and perversions on the ladder. It doesn't propel us, it drags us ALL down and when you insist on attempting to move up the ladder before you've advanced past the lowly aspects of your nature, there are always consequences. Often, unfortunately, those consequences are felt most acutely, not by you, the greedy assholes responsible for so much desolation, suffering and misery, but by innocent people merely struggling to survive, or by thoughtful, intelligent people inspired to move humanity's collective imagination away from its destructive, carnal desires and towards better, previously unimaginable heights of wonder and experience.

Other people having to suffer the consequences of a single entity's greed and fantasies of grandeur was precisely what happened when Virgin Galactic attempted its first test flight into space. Tragedy and death. But has that made Branson and company pause and reconsider what exactly is motivating them and why, as well as the ethical implications? No, it has not, other than perhaps a split-second of self-reflection Branson quickly shrugged off. He clearly does not care. Action speaks louder than words. If his venture fails and more people needlessly die, he can go back to his tropical privately owned tax haven with his ridiculous title and self-gratify with his equally ridiculous, equally entitled and equally irresponsible wealthy friends. 

Fuck you, "sir" Richard Branson. Go fly another kite with another clueless naked model, you wrinkly, self-indulgent asshole. It all boils down to that, too, doesn't it? At the dark heart of it all, that is really the only thing these animals care about: Power over naked, submissive females who have been tricked into believing they actually want to be reduced to empty-minded sexbots forced to perform "tricks" on a stage before a lust-salivating, sushi-gobbling audience, even when it comes to scientific discovery and space exploration!

Nothing like cashing in on the fruits of rape culture and sexualizing space tourism with a sexist logo to lure in the gross,  wrinkly old men who have the lion's share of the world's wealth and resources and the moral compass of a worm.  Men who could never attract the  kind of "prized" young female flesh they are so obsessed with if not for their disgusting wealth.

Case in point, one particular abomination of decency that goes by the name Pornhub (source) is currently crowdfunding a space mission to film a couple of lesser evolved miscreants sexually degrading each other for all the world to witness while in orbit. No shame.

Looking around the world today, in this so-called "Information Age" (which is misleading because "information" and "wisdom" are often mistaken as synonymous when they most definitely are NOT the same thing),  it seems the animal is hellbent on sexualizing, with ever-increasing depravity, every single human concern. 

This is terrible, again for everyone, because there are humanity-altering consequences to all this sexual depravity, which a significant number are in denial about, even though the signs are EVERYWHERE. And the signs are multiplying, the latest "surprise" being a new viral adversary to the battle named Zika

If this is progress, we are screwed in more ways than one.

It's strange that the rest of the natural world seems to sense we may well be permanently screwed and are entering into a kind of "end of days" scenario and yet we, who are supposedly the "brains" of the operation, are not seeing it.

The signs again are everywhere. What's with the denial? 

The clues could not be any more blatant than if an enormous hand reached down from the heavens and hit humanity upside the head with a big whack heard around the globe and an exasperated voice of thunder calling us all damn fools!! We've entered the Age of the Idiots

We are the idiots.

The animal kingdom sees it and is becoming desperate over what to do about us, the idiots, ruining it for EVERYTHING. They are at their wit's end regarding human entitlement and recklessness, and in a last ditch effort, they've resorted to simply attacking us (the sudden spike in shark attacks is one example). 

In addition to the sharks, there are deer charging pedestrians out walking their dogs, or in one case killing a farmer tending his herd. Another deer, so enraged at the mere sight of a dopey human, took a running leap at what was basically an otherwise innocent man, head-butting the dazed and confused man to the ground (which is actually really funny and can be watched repeatedly: Infuriated Deer Jumps Man Outside Hotel). 

And beware of the Kamikaze squirrels! These mini-psychos are pissed off, have a wicked sense of humor, are brave, impetuous AND undisciplined - a dangerous combo. They know who their enemies are too, and they seem to be taking names. How else do you explain this determined little guy (below) knowing exactly which politician was overtly anti-squirrel and getting too boisterously cocky about it for his Kamikaze liking?

But the animals can't do it all by themselves. We are going to need MORE HUMAN BEINGS, regular schmucks and working stiffs, to join forces with the rest of the animal kingdom to get out the message to EVERYONE that "The Boy Crying Wolf" is no longer just bored and trolling for kicks. The WOLF is ACTUALLY here now and he's terrorizing not just the sheep and is about to eat the ENTIRE flock, he is also intent on devastating and demolishing every blade of grass, every drop from the pond, every shrub, every flower and you know what else? He says, fuck it, I'll just take the whole thing. The pasture (POOF) is about to blow in one mother of a BITE. Does anyone with actual power care?

For the LOVE OF ALL EXISTENCE, this message ESPECIALLY needs to be made clear to the completely out-of-touch-with-reality political strongmen, billionaire money hoarders, celebrities and other big name social influencers who are ALL responsible for MUCH of the regressive ideological contagion and modeling of despicable, ecologically irresponsible behaviors spreading throughout this planet like, again, a MALIGNANT, INCURABLE CANCER that's killing EVERYTHING. 

Cancer is a useful analogy here because at the diseased root of our imminent destruction, human greed, a "love of self and fuck everyone else" attitude, ignorance, lazy and incompetent stewardship, as well as the lust for power are LITERALLY making the ENTIRE planet SICK.

If we don't get the people with SERIOUS power in this world to wake up and do something swift and proactive in partnership with scientists of proven integrity immediately, all we will have to rely on is a battered middle-aged woman so fed up with being ignored, when she's not being abused and ridiculed that is,  she takes matters into her own hands and decides to train the Kamikaze squirrels herself to attack with better precision and accuracy all the dumb men responsible for screwing up the planet so royally. She will be so crazed by the time she is finished her futile mission, that she will be rendered a cross-eyed, babbling train-wreck, her life in shambles, just like this poor woman named Ms Smith.

Agent Smith: I'd like to share a Revelation that I've had during my time here. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment; but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus.

In addition to the deer and squirrels, other species are desperately trying to come up with a course of action as well.  Some species even appear to be aware, as I am, of the likes of Richard Branson and his kind. So appalled are they (and me) with this man's god complex, waste and indifference, as well as the blatant hypocrisy regarding wildlife conservation he represents, they took it upon themselves to recruit a  troop of stingrays to attack him. They wanted to let him know exactly what they thought of him and his stupid, perpetual smile: Richard Branson left bloodied and cut after being ATTACKED by deadly stingrays.

In other instances, the animal kingdom attempts a more gentle approach by modelling the Golden Rule, such as the recent story of a rhino risking its own life to lift a baby zebra out of a pit of mud.

Even creatures that generally do not attack humans are joining the fight. Seagulls are dive-bombing pedestrians in the street in retaliation for their fallen comrades, the crows, who are now infected with West Nile virus and are dropping dead from their perches.

In addition to shark attacks, bizarre stories are springing up around the planet's waters of other sea-life, such as dolphins and sea lions, attacking human beings in retaliation of their fallen comrades, the whales whose corpses are inexplicably washing up on both the east and west coasts, transforming beaches on every side into mass graves.

There are numerous stories around the globe, too, of thousands of dead fish washing ashore; in some situations there are so many of these dead fish that at first glance it looks like an expansive pebbled beach, but on closer inspection the realization dawns those aren't rocks, those are dead bodies! It's a fish holocaust. 

A similar baffling situation is happening with enormous flocks of various bird species dropping dead from the sky. We have moved beyond simple canaries dead in the coal mine.

Mother Nature seems to be sending out a kind of "call of duty" to the spiders as well, much to the dismay of arachnophobics everywhere. The spiders have answered the call and are busily draping nature and her trees in huge protective webs. 

Then we have the wind: In addition to the other signs that something is amiss in the world, stories of massive windstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes wreaking havoc all over the place are impossible to ignore. And for the sake of time, let's not get started on the famines, wars, migrant crises, and massive fires and droughts happening throughout the world.

Thus, in summary, we now have all four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth locked in a cosmic war game with Cardinal Sin. Welcome to Babylon. We've been expecting you.

Let's pray that the Source of all the miracle and mystery that makes up existence is one interested in nurturing us out of this present Heart of Darkness and into an improved, kinder, more homeostatic way of living and NOT one of angry annihilation.
