Social/psychological, as in: "political", as in institutional religions & nations, as in abstract self-images, as in "consensus reality" (i.e., the conceptual game rules of our species), and on and on.
The point is we are "mental" beings, profoundly conditioned with language, childhoods, cultures, religions (that worst of all!), politics, etc. All this is the land of memory, abstraction, repetitious programming, and the social/psychological world.
And it's killing the givneness of our self nature like a meteor from hell.
We love to think that since we have these monstrous architectures of religion, and languages we can write down, and core assumptions we unconsciously share as a species, that this somehow makes us unimaginably superior to creatures like elephants, porpoises, whales, parrots, whose brain/body ratio approaches or exceeds our own. And only a retarded worm would discount the possibility that the universe is teeming with life forms relative to with we are barnyard animals.
On our beautiful planet, only Homo sapiens ("sapiens" -- what a joke!) are the masters of species suicide and the only realistic question left is how much of Mother Nature are we going to take with us.
WE ARE KILLING THE ECOSPHERE OF OUR SPECIES. Not to know this and grieve this is (and here's the infinite irony) to be "human", since we are doing it world wide and with a "clear conscience". Indeed, the relentless murder of Mother Nature is probably THE distinguishing feature of our species.
There's much talk these days about greed elite vampires (ugh!) and the meaninglessness of politics and how politics is the will of the elites and NEVER the other 99.5% of the human race. All this is well said and agonizingly true. Behind it all are the 0.5% elites and the 99.5% deadbeat enablers of the elites. Elites and enablers and enablers and elites. The twofer from hell.
And yet, this is the tip of the tip of the iceberg. All these human "psychological/social" sound of fury game rules do indeed signify nothing.
It's all just a little rust under the vehicle of the raw giveness of being alive and the reality of evolution.
