There are some words and language in our wee earthling writings which might be a bit unusual, but are very useful for helping define some tricky topics. The ideas will probably be very familiar, but the terms might not be, or we might use some in a new way… hopefully these little explanations will help our communications…
wee are all of the lovely living creatures who inhabit our home planet. From the bulky blue whale to the puny plankton, every body is little – relative to the big wide world herself, and certainly in comparison to the vast galaxy beaming down from beyond our atmosphere. And wee are all earthlings – risen up from the flesh of the earth. sharing everything in common. we live according to the unspoken laws of life, bound together in the great group hug of existence. From a puny drifting phytoplankton to giant Sequoia tree roots stretching far beneath the soil, from a little shrimp to a great big whale.
human beings are wee earthlings, peoples who live according to the lovely laws of life, alongside all of the other creatures in their environments. Human beings, just as all life on planet earth, are threatened by the ravaging of the earth and their individual ecosystems.
The inhumans are people who fail to live according to the needs of their living community. They generally have the same needs and longings as human beings, but can’t fulfill them because of the expectations and limitations of the constructed environment they live in, and the narrowed world view that it allows. Having these deep needs which go unmet, or even unexpressed, puts inhumans in conflict with their true selves – causing stress, fatigue, depression, aggression and all manner of physical deformity and disease.
The vast majority of the inhuman population is crammed into cities, where they cannot contribute back to their living communities – but only take and take, making a breeding ground for greed in their hearts and their dependence on money, rather than wild independence, has robbed many of their own self worth. This makes love for others difficult to spare. Not all city dwellers are inhumans however, and an inhuman can surely redeem their being of humanity. With patience they most certainly can…
aka – inhuman society, concrete culture, city building culture, consumer culture, money culture, industrial culture, machine culture, toxic mimic culture, death culture
Civilization is a form of social structure which isolates human beings from the natural environment, requiring them to cram into densely populated cities, work in a specialized ‘jobs’, and pay money for the basic necessities of life like food and shelter. The conditions of civilization often turn human beings into inhumans as they lose the ability to live and contribute to their ecosystems.
These poisonous or perverted products try, and fail, to fill in the pieces that are missing from the lives of civilized inhumans. Things wee all pay for, which were free and clear in their natural form. They claim, but fail, to replace the free food, safety, adventure and relationships that are the birth right of all human beings. Businesses charge people for these things, exploiting their needs, and will even destroy or limit their natural availability so they can make money from selling them.
Ill-logic is the sick reasoning which must be used in supporting diseased cultural practices. Lines of argument or discussion which have no basis accept for that cultures own lies, misunderstandings and assertion of superiority. Ill-logic often appears in the discussion of environmental problems where ‘all options are open for consideration’ – accept for those which will actually have any affect on solving them… especially if that option may also cost somebody money.
