Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Nature’s ‘Deselection’ Engine Revving Up!

Thought for the Day:

You may be undergoing natural ‘deselection’ processes at such phenomenal rates you cannot imagine!

  • Are you insane?
  • Following the wrong road map?
  • Your systems too inflexible?
  • Organizations burdensome?
  • Your methods unsustainable?
  • Do your schemes fly in the face of nature?
  • Doing less with more, unaware of your impact on nature?
  • Choosing sight over right?
  • Lost the will to work in harmony with nature?
  • Killing the oceans and polluting the air and ripping the heart out of nature?

If so, then nature wants you—out!

As Human Assault on Nature Accelerates, Nature’s ‘Deselection’ Engine Revs Up!

You may be undergoing natural ‘deselection’ processes at such phenomenal rates you cannot imagine!

Why is that such a bad thing for most everyone else?

‘Collateral Damage!’

How do you avoid the collateral damage?

That depends on your ‘cost-benefit’ analysis!

  • How much money do you make?
  • How often do you fly?
  • On average, how many miles do you clock up per day?
  • What’s your electricity consumption rate?
  • What sort of food do you eat and how much?
  • How much waste do you leave behind?
  • How flexible is your lifestyle?
  • Do you support war?
  • How many people have you killed, or are being killed in your name?
  • Are you single or married?
  • How many children do you have?
  • Really, how much do you love your kids?

Murphy’s law has no time vector!

Posted by feww on November 13, 2009

Nature Defaults on Hydroelectric Supply

Localize or face the consequences:
Power failure plunges its largest cities into darkness

The US, EU countries, China, Japan and other energy dinosaurs WILL experience similar disruptions…

Another Warning Shot Fired by Nature:
Your systems are too inflexible

Remember the first time you heard the so-called Murphy’s Law?

“Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”

Murphy’s law has no time vector! It doesn’t tell you when things WILL go wrong, and  it’s often quoted after things have already gone wrong. It does not incorporate the ‘observer effect.’ Nature is more organized than “Murphy” would have lead you to believe. Now hear this.

FEWW Amendment to Murphy’s Law:
If more things can go wrong they will go wrong about now!

… in the world’s major cities, hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants, oil rigs, production and processing facilities, powerlines …

A name for this?
Blog Moderators call this phenomenon Secondary Interlude to Human-Induced Planetary Antiphase.

Previous Examples in recent times?
Repeated flooding in Manila, Philippines.

Examples to watch for in the Near future?
Watch out for disintegration or collapse of Cities, large-scale structures, bridges, tunnels, power plants… , e.g., collapse of China’s Three Gorges Dam in the next two to three years.

Other Examples?
More examples would be posted after the Moderators have evaluated the structures, geographical regions  and physical locations.

Earthquakes, Storms, Snowstorms, Extreme Rain Events (ERE), Drought and Deluge, Fatigue … Antiphase and all other human-induced and human-enhanced factors.
