What exactly, in these Anthropocentric days, are we supposed to lend our attention to?
Everything qua humans.
What do I mean?
Speaking personally, and it's something that's been hounding my days for a very long time — too long, really, to make sense of — it's to pay attention to the world we've created?
Well, if you don't, perhaps not during your lifetime but certainly in the one to follow, there won't be much, if anything, left to support us.
If you don't believe me, check out these various reports:
Earth overshoot; and
The canary in the coalmine, Climate Change.
Are you worried?
I am. In fact, it's the only thing that's on my mind right now that and Covid19 but perhaps not for the reasons you might think.
You see, I'm still trying to unravel the fact that something so out of sight (not to everyone), so seemingly innocuous in its original host population and originally localised could have wreaked such havoc against, apparently, the Crown of Creation! Just think about it. If someone had said to you a decade or so ago that in 2020 we'd see many parts of the world closed down, millions of deaths and an economic system brought to its knees in a mere 12/13 years since the Banks screwed things up, well, speaking personally, I'd have been hard-pressed to accept all or any of the foregoing.
But here we are, trying to make the best of a very bad situation.
