This being my first post on Medium, I thought I’d open modestly: with God.
My humble goal was to know why we use the utterance ‘god’ in English to indicate the all-powerful creator ‘God’. Why G-O-D in particular, and not some other word? I could find very little definitive online about this and became curious. If you are reading this, I assume you are too.
To give you the backstory, I am currently looking into the origins of Western civilization’s complicated relationship with the biosphere. Both the old gods and the New play an important role in this due to…
In part two of my analysis of monocultural food production patterns, I examine the intriguing new science of trophic design and the impact it will have on agriculture in the years to come. I also examine a few associated social phenomena to look out for.
In part one of my analysis here, I examined the impact glysophate-induced bee deaths could have in food security and international governments’ reaction to this threat.
In this post, I examine the likely alternative to monoculture, which is a form of polyculture I’ve dubbed trophic design.
A multi-trophic system is the interplay between specific insects…
Covid is forcing government’s to toughen their stance on climate change. And the West’s monocultural agricultural practice could be next in line for a major shakeup. This article outlines why.
On the back of Berlin recently announcing that it would seek to achieve climate neutrality by 2045, I thought it a good opportunity to examine how and why this decision was made in the midst of a pandemic, and what repercussions it will have in the realm of food production.
By closely examining the deja vu phenomenon, I formed the idea that Time may be a tool humans use to connect Thought. If true, then deja vu may be serving an extraordinary evolutionary purpose, in that it could be providing us with an early hint of how we will understand and even perceive Time in the future.
Out of curiosity, I recently decided to investigate a phenomena many of us have experienced at some point: deja vu.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, there hasn’t been a great deal of empirical research done due to the phenomenon’s ephemeral nature.
What I did find was…
After spending some time following the shifting undercurrents of the wokist movement, I have come to the conclusion that despite its seemingly ‘destroy everything’ current form, it is still fundamentally a driving force for good. But structural changes are required to save it from itself.
When I was young, I remember my father telling me how wonderful it would be if we could return to a matriarchal society.
“All we’d do is go fishing every day and they’d run the show. We’d come home, cook up the grub for them, have a drink and go to sleep. I’d be paradise.”
