compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion

  

 TIME for HumanKIND to encourage the peoples of the USA that IT IS

 TIME for them to STEP UP TO THE PLATE to CHANGE the SYSTEM of

 injustice, which permeates every nook and cranny of Spaceship Earth.

 TIME to eradicate the global mindset of political slaveryrise to the

 challenge of SOCIAL JUSTICE for every passenger of Spaceship Earth.

 

 THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION was a political one NOT a social one.

 In the NOW adopted role by the USA, of "WORLD POLICEMAN", IT IS 

 incumbent on its citizens, to rise in the name of SOCIAL JUSTICE and

 establish the template for a model of sustainability, for the benefit of

 future generations of passengers of Spaceship Earth.

 
A YIN&YANG model of balance and harmony which would encompass

 everyone of the steps which Eric Liu has proposed in his article entitled

 Bernie Sander's Revolution Needs a Better Plan 


 "In order to understand Chinese medicine you must also

  understand the basis of Chinese philosophical thought.

  Yin and Yang are at the heart of Chinese medicine and

  there is no better way to explain the very philosophy of

  Yin and Yang through Taijitu (the Supreme Ultimate)

  better known as the Yin/Yang symbol. The symbol

  contains a number of features that explain the simple

  themes of Yin/Yang philosophy.



 •
Yin and Yang form a whole. they cannot exist without each other,

    but together they complete each other. They are complementary

    but opposite, like night and day.


 • Yin and Yang are constantly moving, and transforming into each

    other. This is represented by the swirling nature of the Supreme

    Ultimate. 

 • Excessive Yin turns into Yang and vice versa. This is represented

    by the smaller dots within the swirls of black and white.



 Yin and Yang are used to describe the nature of everything in the

 heavens and on Earth. It is a powerful philosophical model and one

 that can always be applied to the workings of NATURE. For instance,

 the day emerges from the night, becomes brighter and then at its

 zenith starts forming the night again. If there is too much heat then

 storm clouds will be created and cool the day down again: excessive

 Yang creating Yin." 


 
Dr. Daniel Keown The Spark in the Machine

 

Dr. Keown goes onto say ...

 "In society if capitalists (Yang) get too rich then the majority

  of the workers (Yin) will rise up and overthrow them"

   ... as has ever been the case throughout

  the entire period of the history of China.

Never forgetting that 3 years before the United Nations made its

Declaration of Human Rights President Roosevelt's science advisor, 

Dr. Vannevar Bush published in the July edition of Atlantic Monthly 

his idea of a wondrous machine which he called a memex. A machine

which would enable you to search through information with incredible

speed. You could pinpoint a thought in a book, leap to a related

pointing in a newspaper story and go on linking ideas until you built,

in essence, a record tracing your own train of thought - one which you

could pass along to friends and associates. All of which would be

considerably closer to the way the MIND works. As Bush himself

described it ..."the human minds snaps instantly from one related

thought to another, following an intricate web of associative trails 

- synapse to synapse - the speed of the action, the intricacy of

the trails, the detail of mental picture is awe inspiring. Man cannot

hope to fully duplicate this mental process artificially but he

certainly ought to be able to learn from it "

    I first read Jean Giona's short story about Elzeard Bouffier
,

    entitled - The Man Who Planted Hope and Grew Happiness 

    in the 1954 copy of my mother's Vogue magazine. It obviously

    had a profound sub-conscious effect on me at the time - because  

    all of my father's earth-husbandry has resulted in my long-term

    involvement in the cultivation of indigenous  European species

    bonsai - particularly sessile oaks - as well as 10 years of dedicated

    custodianship of an ancient oak woodland in Wales.

Ancient, semi-natural woodland, rich in birds, toadstools, butterflies and flowers, was ravaged during the 20th century by the Forestry Commission itself. Astonishingly a patch of such ancient woodland was far less likely to survive if it belonged to this arm of the state than if it was in private hands. Even as private property, much of this kind of woodland was often “commercialised” with conifers at the behest of the FC. Belatedly, the commission has tried to turn itself into the guardian of ancient woodlands, but it still encourages the planting of exotic species rather than regeneration of native trees. This needs to change. The woodlands we want are not closed-canopy forests of trees all the same age, but patchy woods with glades where oaks can spread their branches, while scrubby birch, hawthorn and rowan jostle with bracken and heather for sunlight, views can be glimpsed from hill tops and butterflies dance in the sunny clearings."
