Monday Moaning: Weak Nature!
Now try not to get the title wrong as nature is stronger than we like to admit. But it is about our nature, it is in our nature to try and escape nature as we know it and have succeeded in creating an artificial reality that has become our nature and we do not know any better anymore.
In a world that is based on nature and we who may have lived like animals held these rules high. It is a survival of the fittest the strong warrior who will make sure the tribe thrives. In ancient times they were the foundation and rulers. Next to them a woman who was cunning and smart and held some believes. This is all obviously only true if we used to live like this. But it makes sense.
We have changed those rules and created new ways to build a new system based on wealth instead of strength. Brains over anything else. We have started to believe money builds a society and not so much the people. Creating a pyramid on which the rich stand so money cascades down. But always end at the top.
But what happened to the strong and those with muscle they still are at the foundation but not as they used to be. They provide but not rule.
The strong at the bottom of the pyramid. As they hold t al up. One who crumbles is not much of an issue as weight is distributed I know. But in the end they carry everything. The thing is in nature only the strong survive, but we managed to changed that to who ever holds the most money.
Mind you they can buy anything they want and control our world. They do, because we think they have the brains to do so. And though we might be right in that way even a builder has brans. He is not stupid. He knows full well if he wasn’t there no home would be build that rich man would live in.
So this builder becomes a corner stone of our society, not the rich man who gives away to charity. If we throw things topsy-turvy we can’t balance that same pyramid on this one rich dude. Unless he buy more help and asks a builders for some extra pillars.
So in a world where it is; only the strong surviving or battle of the fittest. We created the rich rule. They are most likely the ones hiding in a bunker when a zombie war breaks out or the world is covered in some toxic cloud. Fly their jet to let us say Greenland or another island. They can, they have the means and money. But the builder will smash his hammer down and survive. He is there to rebuild the world only to be overpowered with the one who has a jet.
Status is everything these days. We need to have it all, in order to be noticed. We need to go along with everyone else if we like to mean something. Though how much of it is ruled from the top and how much is truly building our world. No need to argue who is paying for all this as money is just a creation we created out of thin air
Why do we have this system. We argue that the Caste in India is old fashioned and yet we have a similar system. If our tower collapses or pyramid the one on top falls the furthest yet always on top, killing all below him. The lowest builder. Who will build him a house then.
(To us it has become more of a tower with foundation that is becoming to small to old our economy in place our way of life. According to the set rules.)
It is for this reason we also see real craftsmanship disappear. People who knew a trade or craft are being suffocated by big companies. Losing knowledge of how to make a horse’s shoe by hand. Or how to work wood. It is this kind of thinking we do that the ones with money know best that ruins our world. We to have some blame as we invent to make life easier, yet we know less of how it was done in the first place.
Even a mum today and I mean the young mums might not even know how to heat a bottle without a microwave, if they were never told. To be honest, I did not think anymore. Microwave 60 seconds perfect. Tried ones to check heat and know for the rest of the time. No more thinking just do.
So what is left of the nature’s way. How much have we left behind of our animal instincts and rely on creations to do our bidding. Not saying we should go back to being savages, but at least we should not forget where we came from and who we are.
Transcending nature we will never be able to do, no mater how far we are trying to run away right now. One day if the theory of evolving is true we will only come closer to nature. and maybe not as violent like we were in our caves, but still closer.
Guess the strong will one day tell us while the rich fly in their space ships, we continue to evolve and grow.
If one would ask me what a future may look like and who will have the plans for it. It would be the ones who dare to change and not have profit in mind. And create enough for everybody. Though I am sure there will always be those cunning money makers who will buy and use their rules to make it very hard for that to happen.
It is our creation, an unfair world based on rules that are not natures own but man made.
But this may just be a madman’s rant.
