In these photos, you can see a forest ecosystem that has experienced fire and which is now entering its next stage of growth. The fire was no disaster here; that's a drama created by the corporate media. i won't even describe it as death followed by life. That metaphor suggests an ending and a beginning, and the cycles of a forest ecosystem are not as linear or discrete as that; rather, a multitude of cycles constantly ebb and flow in overlaps of first this thing and then that entering one stage or another. At no single point is there complete death. Instead, life simply fills different shapes from one moment to the next. Our perception, blindered by a setting called "civilzation" that is poisonous, mediated and constricted, fails to recognize this reality. |
Destroying these places is a crime. Waking ourselves up and doing something to stop it is the only morally defensible choice to make.
