The immoderate erethism of the world;
‘coming’, home, with a shopping tote.
The cry to STOP of a child or a whistle blower goes unnoticed in the general agitation towards the peak of consumerism; a climbing orgasm playing out in grand urban centers all over the world and destined to leave our eyes weeping and teeth gnashing. What has been an advantageous enclosure of life behind a benign atmosphere may soon have been made useless by the Prince of evolution – Homo Vastus.
The contraction of Nature produced by such an orgasm, accelerating, all the time, in pace and agitation towards its own climax is posed to submerge our planet and species in a long coma of refractory time during which the ecosystem recovers its potential for life on what was our planet. What that life will look like and how long a rest the planet needs can only be an educated guess. It is likely to take a very long time and that we as a species won’t be there to see Nature come back in her new mantle.
The once civilized man, who in struggle adapted and learned to live in profitable coexistence with Nature, has become modern and savage; has lost his innate understanding of his origin and utter dependence on Nature and become a predator upon his own flesh and kin.
Greed forgets that balance depends on a JUST EXCHANGE and that the consequence of Hubris, of excess on one side of the scales or injustice, is Nemesis; a dark future…
‘Come’ …and get it.
To come alludes to a regular biological function related to procreation or the gestation of new life. Here the word is abused as a reference to what appears to be the unfortunate cultural foreplay to the birth of a rather difficult tomorrow.
Vastus (Lat) empty, desolate, waste.

In an act of unprecedented solidarity with fellow feathers, Snowball, the Rock and Roller parrot, has been invited to Exuvia to perform to widen human appreciation for consciousness in other species.
Watch those legs and feathers drum out the beat. Snowball may not be a Hammerstein, may not posses the subtle music appreciation of a Beethoven but I see a spark.
Somewhere else a chicken returns to the earth through a human gut; a final voyage accompanied by the greasy angel of death.
Go Snowball go…

[The previous collection of admirable political jargon posted was removed so a new one has been found on youtube to enlighten and draw attention to those who lead our world… into…]
I can’t help it; youtube yields such abundant testimony… here is another one.

You can wear my hat…
I have seen few individuals making so much effort as Greg, a rather spirited, humorous and very didactic physics teacher, in order to promote a general understanding of science and in particular of the pressing issue of climate change.
I spent a few hours refreshing my logic and updating my information on the single most important issue for the present and coming generations.
Here is the URL to Greg’s videos:
They are short; 8 to 10 minutes each, highly relevant as well as amusing at times. Silly hats a bit of irony and a good grasp of the subject make this series worth a visit. One or two a day or as many as your attention span will allow you to digest would be my recommendation. Keep a sheet of paper and some coloring pens to jot along the drawings and concepts which appear before your minds eye as you listen and watch.
Enjoy, rage, laugh and applaud as you please. Find yourself wanting to know more and to realize that THIS IS IMPORTANT. THIS IS A PROBLEM.
See you later…

Pinocchio – Creation and Image by Mario Ceroli at
If you are not interested in where your food comes from and what it might do to you as long as it is inexpensive and tastes good then you can skip the following text which I found while surfing tags that I look for in ‘the-cloud-of- knowing’.
Here is an excerpt:
“Dangerous Food Safety Lies:
When the FDA was constructing their GMO policy in 1991-2, their scientists were clear that gene-sliced foods were significantly different and could lead to “different risks” than conventional foods. But official policy declared the opposite, claiming that the FDA knew nothing of significant differences, and declared GMOs substantially equivalent. This fiction became the rationale for allowing GM foods on the market without any required safety studies whatsoever! The determination of whether GM foods were safe to eat was placed entirely in the hands of the companies that made them — companies like Monsanto, which told us that the PCBs, DDT, and Agent Orange were safe. GMOs were rushed onto our plates in 1996. Over the next nine years, multiple chronic illnesses in the US nearly doubled — from 7% to 13%. Allergy-related emergency room visits doubled between 1997 and 2002 while food allergies, especially among children, skyrocketed. We also witnessed a dramatic rise in asthma, autism, obesity, diabetes, digestive disorders, and certain cancers. In January of this year, Dr. P. M. Bhargava, one of the world’s top biologists, told me that after reviewing 600 scientific journals, he concluded that the GM foods in the US are largely responsible for the increase in many serious diseases.”
