greedless care...

we like the pretty flowers...

Caring for biodiversity is beyond simple human need. There is an unrelated reaction of beauty in our acceptance of other species appearance. We like the pretty flowers so to speak. We like Bambi... But beyond the one we like there are thousands of species we don't see vanish, because we simply don't care. Yet they vanish...

The symbol e is that which I have created to represent Organica Spiritualia. This is to relate our "spiritual being" to nature. In fact it is our human intelligence (reactive animalistic processing of environmental factors for survival into stylistical actions) that creates our "spirtual being". Our consciousness is organic, based on our memory. Most animals that have a central memorising system of environmental factors can have a consciousness of space and position.

Our individual memory is greater than that of individuals in others species and gives us the ability to invent a lot of solutions, including fake solutions that solve "problems" nonetheless... But beyond these fake solutions, including ethical solutions, there are relationship between our generosity and species that do not really matter to our survival.

Organica spiritualia gives us the power to be generous to nature beyond our needs. But our needs are bathed more and more in greed, another Organica Spiritualia activity with less ethical understanding of where we are at at this point in time — an evolved being from a soup of life on a planet to which we could decide we owe nothing to.

The relationships between human survival and that of other species is often not as important as we could think... But this relationship is more important than our needs, because at this point in time we have evolved to be where we are — together on the planet. It's an ethical choice in which our judgement (or carelessness) of life or death over other species may alter the course of our future history or not... It is a stylistic choice. Extinction of species resulting from our activities is our stylist choice. We can and should choose different and care better.

extinction of species is forever.

The Royal Botanic Gardens - a botanical and cultural oasis, a green sanctuary in the heart of the great city of Sydney

Eyes wide open and you may see an Orchard butterfly as big as your hand, a jewel-like Superb Fairy Wren that will fit in your hand, a colony of Pearl White Butterflies blown off course from the tropics and now safe in the Gardens, or a Titan Arum fl ower two metres high. You might also find a leaf from the Sandpaper Fig that doubles as an emery board, a lotus fit for an emperor, or a Wollemi Pine from the Age of the Dinosaurs. Be surprised by two-metre-long native slithery eels, lizards with blue tongues, giant seeds sculptured from copper wire, Swamp Oaks planted in 1816, majestic Sydney Red Gums and stately Moreton Bay Figs.

Now try conjuring up the ghosts of a colonial era of mayhem, murder and mutiny, courage, foresight and vision; tread in the footsteps of a Governor’s lady to her tranquil place overlooking the harbour. Envisage the first farm planted here in 1788 with corn; twirl around and see the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, the deep blue Harbour, and the skyline of the business district. Listen to the hum of street traffic, the chug of the old ferries, the sleek roar of catamarans, the flap of spinnakers - feel the green calm at the heart of a marvellous metropolis on a bustling harbour. This is the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, one of the great botanic gardens of the world.

The Gardens cover 30 hectares and everywhere you go, you will see reminders of the city’s beginnings. Established in 1816, the Gardens are situated on the land of the Indigenous Cadigal people. This was where Australia’s first penal colony was established in 1788 when 11 ships, the First Fleet, carrying over 700 convicts, landed here. This is just a glimpse of the fascinating Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney.

weak as piss...

The UN biodiversity meeting in Japan has agreed a 10-year plan aimed at preserving nature.

Targets for protecting areas of land and sea were weaker than conservation scientists wanted, as was the overall target for slowing biodiversity loss.

Most developing countries were pleased with measures aimed at ensuring they get a share in profits from products made from plants and other organisms.

Nations have two years to draw up plans for funding the plan.

Gus: I get irate at this. I get irate at Alan Jones anti-climate change stance. I get irate at Tony's crap. So forgive me if I use pub vernacular to describe my feelings about another blabfeist that ends dismally in a back-slapping "let's do lunch".

The earth deserves better.
