Dreams of the End

I admit I'm in a better frame of mind than I have been since 2011, but there is one thing that has not changed.

Every day, I dream of the Alpaca Lips. I imagine the Earth a quiet realm, except for the voices and movements of the animals, and the ebb and flow of the Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. I bask in the thoughts of every shred of Humanity being erased and replaced with natural, normal things. Good things. Things that do no intentional harm and do not claim dominion over this jewelled planet.

I want us all gone so badly, frankly I ache from the need of it.

Gladly would I surrender my life for this miracle to occur. Most people assume I want the End conditionally, that I might survive it somehow, but that can't be further from the truth. In order for my dream to come true, we all have to die, every human being on planet Earth…as quickly as possible.

The planet needs peace and healing. She will not experience this with even one of our species roaming the surface. There is nothing I would not do to bring about the holy tranquility that would follow the Alpaca Lips.

There isn't a day that goes by, that I don't dream of this.

two relevant quotes from Lynn Margulis (RIP)
"There is no scientific reason to think that we, even with space travel, are going to survive as a species for ever, certainly not by biting off the hand that feeds us, which is exactly what we are doing."

"To me, the human move to take responsibility for the living Earth is laughable - the rhetoric of the powerless. The planet takes care of us, not we of it. Our self-inflated moral imperative to guide a wayward Earth, or heal our sick planet, is evidence of our immense capacity for self delusion. Rather, we need to protect ourselves from ourselves."

Went to a lecture of hers once. After saying that *all* species (humanity included) go extinct, she ended with something like this: if you listen very closely, you can hear the biosphere singing... and the words are "Been here before you got here, and I'll be here when you're gone." ;-)

She sounds like she was an awesome spirit. I agree with her. When I hear my fellow hippies and Pagans preach about "saving the Earth," I usually piss them off by explaining that what they really mean is "save the Earth for humans!" Bleh.
