I like using new words and phrases.   The first phrase I coined was the Petrolithic Era, defined as beginning just before World War One, in 1913, when Rudolf Diesel mysteriously died at sea crossing the English Channel.   I always have liked creating new words and ideas.   I, like any neophyte writer believed that the Petrolithic Era was a term and definition that would change the world.   It has not that I am aware of.   Terraists seek to have an impact on the world.

I am not the only one to come up with the term terraist, but rather I came up with it independently along with others.   Since 9/11 the world has been under a war on terror which is more accurately a war on terra.   And since the inception of the Petrolithic Era humanity has waged a war on terra as well.   Most all nations prepare for war and some nations occasionally promote it and engage in it.   The technologically fought wars since World War One devastated the world and future generations of living beings on it.   Terraists seek to end the war on terra.

It is funny, to me, that I am often called negative when questioning observations or revealing facts.   Particularly, recently I have made the conclusion that the promotion of nuclear experimentation is the biggest set of problems to life on the planet accompanied by the greatest set of lies.   The nuclear experimentation industry has degraded the earth, air and water through its fire and has permanently destroyed numerous regions of the planet, Ukraine, Japan, California (Santa Susana meltdown), Washington (Hanford) to name a few.   When I confront the fact that Fukushima is destroying the atmosphere and Pacific, people suggest that I would be better off writing poetry rather than researching nuclear experimentation.   If it were not a problem of global extinction proportion perhaps I probably would write poetry.   But with the world as it is I write to raise awareness.   Terraists oppose nuclear experimentation.  

Nuclear experimentation is the most negative industry on the planet.   I wish I could ignore it.   And I understand that trying to instigate change requires research.   And I understand why researching such a negative industry might be perceived as negative, but I also understand that what is more negative is ignoring something as negative and as evil as nuclear experimentation.   Nuclear experimentation is at best an oligarchical energy distribution system, is a centrifuge to the global military industrial complex and it has proved to be, in the sixty some years since its inception, a permanent planetary poison.   Nuclear experimentation is negative.   Ignoring the facts concerning nuclear experimentation and tolerating it is way more negative than attempting to understand it.   Terraists research the facts.   

The antithesis of a terrorist is a terraist.   And yet it's easy to get terrorism confused with heroism and vice versa before consideration of terraism.   Terrorists support war.   Terraists are against war.   We are a confused, hubristic and egoistic culture.   We have omitted nature from consideration when it comes to implementing systems, such as war, the global military complex and nuclear experimentation.   We are destroying terra through tolerating systems of war and nuclear experimentation.   There was a nuclear meltdown in California.   Did you know that?   Is it negative to know such fact or ignore such fact?   Terraists ask questions on behalf of terra.

     Nuclear experimentation is just about the most frightening stuff imaginable.   Nuclear detonations are capable of annihilating all life in an atomic horror show.   While nuclear power experimentation is capable of destroying all life quietly.   Radiation cannot be seen or detected without machinery, it kills you and deforms your offspring.   It is unavoidable, it is everywhere.   What could be more frightening?   And what could be easier to ignore?   Terraists seek to wake people up.
