We have lost more than 50% of our vertebrate in just two generations

The latest Living Planet Report – just out a week ago, found that, in less than two generations, we have lost more than 50% of our vertebrates.

"These are the living forms that constitute the fabric of the ecosystems which sustain life on Earth. By taking more from our ecosystems and natural processes than can be replenished, we are jeopardizing our very future." This is how WWF answered.

If you feel at odds with the world - it could be because you have retained the human values you were supposed to have discarded.

"We find ourselves technically free but powerless. Whether in work or out of work, we must live by the same rules or perish … So, if you don’t fit in, if you feel at odds with the world, if your identity is troubled and frayed, if you feel lost and ashamed – it could be because you have retained the human values you were supposed to have discarded. You are a deviant. Be proud."

Dept can be bought off collectively - unite!

The student dept problem in the US amounted to 1tn$ locking students into a dependency relationship before even able to ear money. Modern slavery due to a intrinsically flawed and unfair concept/system (dept).

Rolling Jubilee bought the $3.8m worth of student loans for a total of $106,709.48 in cash. That’s about 3¢ for $1 of student debt. The Activist group was able to pay off the dept thanks to a crowd funded campaign - here one of the donors speaking:

“I just thought that the concept of mutually buying discounted debt and abolishing it was really clever,” he says. “I realize that the debt market is too big for Rolling Jubilee to make a difference, but the action just pokes some really big holes in capitalism. I suppose that by donating, I got to play a small role in this affront to the status quo and that really appealed to me.”

The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in our body…the electrical field is about 60x greater in amplitude than the brain waves. The magnetic component of the heart’s field, which is around 100x stronger than that produced by the brain..can be measure several feet away from the body.

imperative

the fire of life 

inside of me

at times flames 

it’s my imperative 

my fire 

to nurture it 

a fire to take over a whole forest 

that strong 

attempted to tame - 

it will continue to spread 

to grow 

that fire inside 

is my imperative 

strong enough so it can spread 

the fire of love .
