Certainty, ha! i would like to meet certainty, and decisiveness, the hot twins that won’t even look in my direction. i would also like to meet wisdom; i’ve heard of him, but have only known one or two people that have ever met him. sighting wisdom these days is a rare thing. since i don’t think that i will ever get the chance to meet certainty, decisiveness, or wisdom, i would like to meet a bear in the mountains. i think that we have a lot in common, and if i survived the meeting i would certainly have the wisdom next time to decide to take him something to eat.

Controversial

Isn’t everything controversial these days? Seems people are thriving on controversy. If it’s not controversial it’s because there are not at least two people interested in the topic. So, when you say ‘could actually get somewhere’ then you are looking for the top most topics people are interested in, thus controversy. Then the biggest contributing factor of what gets anywhere, seems to me comes down to all the people involved in the production of telling the story of the controversy.

Probably over ninety percent of the population of the planet believes in religion. And there has always been conflict between the religions, but right now seems to be during the hottest times of conflict between religions. For me though, I don’t think that I would want to see more on the stuff that dominates life in the usa everyday (Iraq, Iran, Korea, Israel, Shiites, Christians, Moslems, Jews). I’m burned out on it already. But a more well rounded elaborated approach to religions around the world and the conflict between them on the global perspective.

Speaking of global, global warming seems to be a topic heating up right now. How about some truth in the matter of what is really causing global warming… our freaking politics. People either can’t agree that global warming is occurring. The people that believe that’s it’s happening can’t agree on why it’s happening. Or they can’t agree on what the effects are going to be. Or they can’t agree on the time frame at which the shit goes down. Or they can’t agree what to do about it.

Did you see where Morgan Spurlock is going to be doing a series now where he does different stuff for thirty days? Not sure if that’s really ‘making it’ or not. Eating McD’s for a month nearly killed him. There doesn’t seem to be ‘epic’ interest in the controversies of our food industry, but done right and I bet it could be a hit. Shit like when we first starting hearing about mad cow disease and that it was caused by grinding up unusable cow parts and feeding it back to the cows. Sounds like a good ‘horror’ documentary to me. David I could see you doing a zombie cow production on this. Zombie cows (mad cows… really pissed off cows) invading rural communities and eating the people. Or focus on the corporate and political levels of the industry for a movie.

I wish public sex was controversial. Everybody just humping out in the streets, parks…where ever, any time any place like dogs. We would all be in better physical condition and a lot happier.

Legalizing pot has been a little controversial for a few years now. The problem with making a movie about that is, your audience would get stoned and forget to go see your movie. Speaking of pot, no I’m not a toker, but the American Indians coexisted with each other for thousands of years without killing each other by toking on the peace pipe. You never hear about people getting stoned and going out and starting a bar fight and killing people. There probably has never been a stoned driver accident, they drive in slow motion. Maybe all the dignitaries and politicians should start toking. They would all just sit around the table laughing their asses off. There’s a comedy movie. Bush, Gore, Clinton, Janet Reno, and half a dozen Middle East leaders stoned, cotton mouthed and got the munchies. Smells of SNL, doesn’t it. Janet has got to have the good shit though before she cracks a smile.

Disconnected

I was reading an article about animal testing. It seems like it is rather easy to run across documents noting some kind of animal cruelty; hunting a species to extinction, killing elephants for their tusk, and killing animals to extinction or near extinction just to feed human vanity. A single species eating so much of particular animals that the animal’s existence becomes an assembly line to the mouth just seems obviously wrong to me.

I think that humans for the most part have become so disconnected from nature that everything seems fine. I think our connection to nature may be broken but I don’t think natures connection to us is. What I mean by this is that I think we are becoming a hated species on this planet. It’s kind of like the fact that the United States and Americans seem to be hated by just about every other country.

It may sound silly, like a Stephen King movie, but the rest of the species on this planet are connected. They all have respect for each other and each other’s existence. Even though many species kill and eat other species there is a mutual respect between the two. Tigers only eat what they need to live. A tiger that is not hungry can walk through a heard of gazelles and the gazelles just keep grazing. Its like this throughout the rest of nature.

A comedian once said that “mother nature would shake humans off the face of the planet like a bad case of the fleas”. I think that was Carlon, sounds like something he would say. I think that humans are now a rogue species that the laws of nature will take care of through all the things that humans are afraid will destroy them. Its seems an irony, but it really is a weak emitted pulse getting through the connection from nature to people. Its not imagination that drives the natural thinking that disease will wipe out a large percentage of our population, or tidal waves, or other natural disasters, its inevitability.

There is a grave misunderstanding in people that they think that people are going to or are destroying the planet. What they fail to realize is that it us destroying us for trying to disconnect from nature, the planet will still be here. And after some time, nature will have pretty much erased all suggestions that the human species ever existed. That’s just the way it is. Sad for us but true.

I don’t know why people want to be so disconnected from nature. Nature is really wonderful. Yes its hard, and I could get eaten by a bear, or fall off a cliff and die, but its being alive. I’m the kind of person that I need to be doing something productive or I start to really feel bad about myself. I think that the same applies to people and nature. Everybody is searching for something and they don’t know what. Some people go to church. Some people buy stuff, like excessively buy stuff. Some people eat, and eat, and eat. Others have some type of hobby that they seek happiness from. Not everything is bad, but what is not understood is that there is a void there, and it can’t be filled with religion, or anything other thing concocted to relieve the tension caused by the disconnection with nature.
