88 – The Absurdity of the Corporate Mind …

Disregarding the obvious Fact that our increasing levels of consumption and exploitation of natural resources are throwing out of equilibrium the stable environment that has allowed humankind to thrive, most of us continue to believe the dangerous fallacy that Nature will continue to sustain our unsustainable growth without having to face consequences for the damage we are inflicting, because we are special.

We are not.

Under this false belief we have created an absurd world; a world where we permit multinational corporations to unashamedly bare the lowest levels of irresponsibility, the highest degrees of greed, and the tyrannical pillaging of natural resources without a trace of accountability, thus creating a world where the poor and disadvantaged are exploited and pushed into the cruelest and most horrible levels of inhumanity; a world where the Earth from which we emerge into existence is perceived as an unlimited resource to be exploited for man’s benefit; a world where the divisive nature of organized religions and the categorization of human beings into  disconnected and unrelated factions by socio-political institutions, incite conflict and the scourge of scapegoating to avoid responsibility for their actions.

All this absurdity obscures from us the beautiful Symmetry that binds all natural systems (be it an atom, a cell, a human being, our species, our environments, our Earth, our solar system) into our creative, self-generating, self-organizing Universe. But this Symmetry is bound by a non-negotiable pre-condition, an unyielding law, which demands that, for naturally evolving systems like our species to unfold into a viable future, the energy sources we consume must be in equilibrium with the energy sources we dissipate. If this equilibrium is not sustained, we will either re-organize or die out.

Do the minds behind the corporate mentality really believe that they can bend this unbending natural law and continue to ravage the Earth until there is no more to ravage? Their rapacious greed and the extent of their environmental ignorance are making our Earth ill, throwing its chemical composition out of equilibrium. She will recover and re-organize as she has done many, many times in the past, but we, the ones making her ill, might not.
