Memes, Genes and Us Musing on how cultural and personal memes define us - or not.

Immodest Proposals We were not thrown out of paradise. We thought ourselves so smart that we could make a better paradise. We must find a way to get human thinking back to seeking solutions from the bottom up, rather than today's thinking focused almost exclusively on top down, from experts or leaders or the very rich. Nothing in the real world is top down, everything grows from the bottom up. A shift in how we think.

Wars Come In Many Flavors On a world scale we are fighting wars against the planet. Our culture is based on the root idea that we, humans, have taken over. We are in charge, we control the planet. We control everything by killing what we don't like. We have the power to make over plants and animals. We create new forms of life, genetically manipulated organisms.

Have We Lost Our Humanity? We have come to think that "spirit" is unmeasurable and therefore not scientific, not worth thinking about. To me, spirit is more real than matter. It is the awe that is at the core of life.

A Wider View There are different ways of thinking. different ways of seeing the world, different ways of thinking of me in my world. Language is the expression of a culture. Imagine that your language has no words for me, mine, his, hers. In that culture you cannot think about your children as "mine" and probably you cannot think of your nose or your toe nails as yours. They are not a possession, they are me. In the Hawaiian language...

SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES and changes the planet Many 1000s of years ago early humans discovered how to overcome their fear of fire; learned to use it. Possibly to protect themselves from dangerous animals; most animals seem to be afraid of fire. Fire is warm and it gives light. Probably one of the first steps in leaving the so-called animal kingdom and the first step in our War on Nature. What we now call Climate Change is simply the consequence of burning ancient plants

From the end of 2012 looking at 2013 I learned in a long life full of miracles and surprises that impossible is not possible. That is also what I see for 2013. Anything and everything is possible. Expect a wild ride in a zig-zag tunnel with a few windows and many unexpected surprises. Nothing impossible.

Why we cannot lead humankind to a sustainable world We have known for a long time what we could and should do to perhaps slow down global warming. Easily said not easily done: stop burning oil and coal (and now natural gas); stop producing super polluting gases from factories, from planes, from ships, from cars. We, the US, are one of the two most polluting nations on earth. We are the world's worst polluter per person.

Tamed Maybe climate change is here but first we have to fix our debt, then we have to make some jobs, and perhaps after that we may do something about these storms, droughts, floods. Obviously we have our priorities exactly reversed. If we were to create a green infrastructure now, a green economy, we would create millions of jobs, our debt would evaporate.. Maybe we could even slow down climate change

A very immodest proposal Superstorms, droughts, 100 degrees summer temperatures are the new norm. If we go on as we have done this century most of the biggest cities of the world will be flooded, the heating of the planet will pass two degrees C (3.8 - F) in five years instead of thirty. There are a hundred web sites where anyone can find out what those two degrees will mean to humankind. Humankind is in danger. THERE IA ONLY ONE PRIORITY

Interregnum (again) This is a reminder. Wrote this four years ago, after Obama was elected but Bush was still president for two months and a few weeks. Now, 2012, it feels very much like then. Some things have changed, bur remarkably many have not.

What does it cost? The rest of the world already accepts, knows, that climate change is real. It is here. This country seems to be the only country where maybe not a majority but many people don't "believe" in climate change, and the government either does not talk about it or firmly denies that any such thing is happening.

"Yes, corporations are persons, my friend" Does a fetus or a corporation have voting rights? Is causing the dissolution of a corporation murder: killing a person? How about a corporation who causes the death of one or more people? Or, what it one corporation absorbs, ingests, eats another corporation.: Is that cannibalism? Corporations do it all the time.

Climate change? Most of the world knows that climate change is here. Washington, DC is the only place where it does not seem to be noticed. Maybe that is because it is not a political issue, and those who represent us only do politics -- even when they have forgotten that they represent us.

Money - and why we must learn to do without In America 400 individuals, probably mostly men, own more wealth than the bottom 180 million of us. 'Wealth' today means money. "Own' means that that wealth belongs to those 400 persons only, they can do with it what they want. With that much wealth doing nothing makes it grow. But money is like a drug, people get addicted to it, they want always more. And one of our two parties sees to it that the rich pay a lower tax rate.

How we see others, how they see us We, white people, Americans, have a hard time seeing "worth" in other people. I think it is important that we know how we are seen by others. Maybe they have a hard time seeing our exceptionalism, our worth.

What it means to be conservative Are conservatives blind? They seem to live on another planet. Or perhaps it is that I don't understand their prejudices. A smaller government but endless laws to control women's health. They still think Russia is our enemy; they want to do away with all our hard-fought safety nets. How can I see things so differently?

Remember Hiroshima? absurdity may well apply to humans, the smart apes who in a few years can invent a way to send a man to the moon and bring him back safely. We can make ever more lethal weapons but we cannot make peace. We accept artificial intelligence but not our neighbor's beliefs. We cannot stop interfering in other countries nor stop interfering in nature and so we are destroying our only home. Knowing full well what we are doing.

"If you don't know how to fix it stop breaking it." We are the only species on this planet that lives by manmade laws that are based on manmade ideas of morality and/or profit. Not only unsustainably but with full awareness suicidal -- worse than suicidal: with full awareness extinguishing other species, destroying the planet.

What domesticating does to us and how to get our from under If one day my cats discover they can catch their own food, they free not only themselves, but they leave me with a bag of catfood that I cannot use. I would love to see the very very rich with trillions in their banks that are worthless, because there are no more consumers; we don't need their money any more.

Worth All our commotion about jobs ignores what unemployment does to us. Not just loss of income but loss of "worth." That can be a serious source of PTSD. We forget our worth as humans. Isn't that what Arab Spring and the Occupy movement is about? Ultimately our worth is our ability to survive. What can be greater worth?

Fiddling While the Planet Burns Why don't we talk about climate change? Globalization but not Global Warming? We have become a species hell bent on destroying the planet, forgetting or denying that we are of the planet. We are racing full speed to our own extinction, taking as many species with us as we can. According to at least one Holy Book once we were all but erased but cleansed by water; this time it will be by fire and all other extremes...

SMILE When John Roberts sat for a photo with the other Supremes he smiled. He could barely suppress from bursting into a guffaw. Smiling is a very American thing. The first thing that any American baby learns is to stretch the mouth on command, and as the teeth come in, show teeth. No other country has so many glaring white teeth to show. In fact, there are many cultures where showing teeth is a sign of aggression.

Money Once there was a saying You have to have money to make money. Now it is: You must make money with borrowed money. That feels unreal to me, somehow dishonest. How about revamping the financial system so that it only deals with what there is, and not with what they wished there were. Borrowing is really gambling on the future, isn't it?

These Times, February 2008 The indigenous people I knew thought important decisions should include the will of all people. It sometimes took a while, but eventually, all agreed on a certain course. That system worked to keep peace for long times. And, incidentally, even in Muslim countries, women were never excluded in times of considering, thinking about, talking about, important issues.

LOCKS & KEYS Our entire nation--the world--seems to be locked into the idea that better locks give us better protection. Yet, anyone looking at how we live our lives must see that all these multiple, ever more sophisticated locks, don't do much to protect, only make us more paranoid. Thinking "security" makes life unnecessarily difficult and complicated. We talk about protecting our liberty but it is our freedom we sacrifice.

CONUNDRUM; Climate Change, world culture and "democracy." Where western culture, the WTO and globalism go, people essentially lose their identity, their religion, their values. That is a worldwide story. Everywhere westerners have settled, or even visited on a regular basis, cultures and languages have been swept away, leaving people living in a void, between partially remembered song and wisdom, and the crude materialism of western so-called culture.

War on Terra We like to think that we lifted ourselves up by our bootstraps. But in reality, of course, we grabbed more of what we wanted by stepping on the backs of others. We have a myth that we conquered an empty land; but of course it was not empty at all. Abusing slaves and other humans by force of gunpowder is bad enough, but the consequences of abusing the land we stole will turn out to be a greater catastrophe.
