Today's Cartoon: Experts Predict Seafood Will Vanish by 2048

Good news for people who hate seafood; according to experts, by 2048 there's not going to be any of it left because the oceans are about to run out of fish. This of course means that seafood restaurants like "Red Lobster" have about 40 years to either figure out a way to cook a squirrel so it tastes like salmon, or go out of business ;)

Wow, two equally grim forecasts about our planet in less than a week. At this rate, by next Friday, any report of a giant meteor heading towards the Earth will probably be viewed by many as an act of "mercy".

Obviously a concerted effort has to be made to prevent life from disappearing from our oceans; if for no other reason, than because of global warming, we're about to become part of it. While over fishing may play a large part in this, it's still only a contributing factor to the overall problem. Aquatic habitat is also being loss due to pollution; which really sucks for us, because once the fish are all gone, not only won't we have anything to eat, but we're not going to have anyplace to live either.

Then again, I'm not really sure how someone is supposed to breath, with all that crud floating through their gills ;)

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.


Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.


When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.



A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.



FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.
