Since the early 1960s, scientists have known about the so-called “dead zone” in the Gulf of Oman, a patch of water practically devoid of all oxygen. As anyone who has ever owned an aquarium knows, even fish require oxygen, but as a surprising new survey shows, the Arabian Sea features an oxygen-starved aquarium the size of Florida—and it’s still growing.

As I piece my little paradigm together, the positive one, the one where we're the heroes, the negative-to-positive ratio keeps emerging as a factor, as we take the world apart and analyse it, our destructive behavior resulting in greater understanding and hence the potential to recreate it all somewhere else. We've cracked some of the more arcane codes, as with the atomic bomb, but the seemingly more available bio secrets await our exploration, and only reveal themselves when on the brink of destruction by our hands. My Pollyanna approach began when I attempted to justify war and found it remarkably easy, along with overpopulation and nuclear proliferation. Now I struggle with natural selection (we're winning, in case you hadn't noticed) and the secret quilt of life that exists below the visible one, that until the last century, the virtual skin on the onion of our history on Earth, was unbeknownst to us, but appears to be of first consideration when approaching the task of seeding a new planet with life, before we can ever approach it for our own existence. Why put it here, on a site concerned primarily with the melodrama of political life? Because the apparently destructive and irrational behavior we exhibit both privately and oh so publicly, reflects that negative/positive ratio thing; that plucks us from the viewpoint where we're the whole point here and somebody cares about us and we're good or bad. That point whose premises give credence to our judgments of one another, as we draw imaginary lines around our "countries" and then kill each other defending them. I say we're stuck in the machinery of a much larger force, as the Earth quakes beneath our feet and warns us, "This is not forever. Break it down, do whatever you have to do to find its tiniest parts and fashion a picture you will have to reproduce on fresh territory, where nothing at all exists except the space to start again."
