A New Earth – I am Everything

continued from previous They parted ways, each one taking home one of Aspen’s delicious salads and heading to a cooler place.  Aspen hadn’t told John her secret yet:  that she had known where Petunia was buried from the moment that she stepped foot in that garden.  That ever since her near-death experience and rescue by … Continue reading A New Earth – I am Everything

A New Earth – Divorce

continued from previous It is ironic how the search for perfection and order can be such a destructive force.  Those who look for perfection will often end up achieving exactly the opposite: creating chaos.  They will destroy everything, with the rationale that it wasn’t perfect.  It needed to be rebuilt from scratch, bigger and better.  … Continue reading A New Earth – Divorce

A New Earth – Made out of Chaos

continued from previous “In fact, this wouldn’t surprise me at all.  It would be perhaps the missing perspective in our understanding of life, and the way that our genetic code has been put together in a disordered, yet ordered way.  All of this time science has been focusing on the sequences within our DNA that … Continue reading A New Earth – Made out of Chaos

A New Earth – The Minimalists

(..continued from previous) Only few had reached this level of awareness, and although it had taken a while, they had eventually come to be accepted by society as an unavoidable outcome of the difficult times we were living through: a special class of humans without a specific status, or purpose for that matter – and … Continue reading A New Earth – The Minimalists

Happy End of The World

There is something cathartic about failure.  About reaching rock bottom, just like a drug addict who realizes that they can’t possibly fall any lower.  Having reached the end of the line, there is nothing for them to look forward to anymore, or to worry about, for that matter.  A bizarre sense of calm and optimism suddenly prevails.  Not because … Continue reading Happy End of The World

Consumption is a Self-Eating Death Cult

The Latin roots of the word consumption give away some fairly revealing hints as to how our consumer-based civilization had, since its very early stages, already began its transformation into a planet-cidal death cult. Con(altogether) and Sumere(take-up) basically means complete and total exhaustion of a resource.  This is how humans, as recent as the last millennium, perceived in … Continue reading Consumption is a Self-Eating Death Cult
