"The whole of the gene pool of the biosphere is available to all organisms."

“The worst part of depression is that it narrows the field of vision into a very small tube so they can’t see the options.” Adam Kaplin, Johns Hopkins


This is utterly matter of fact and accurate. It’s not even a metaphor.

Maximum tube compression as far as I’ve been concerned: five minutes into the future and five minutes into the past.

You need time to write…you also need a feeling of (expansive) time…

The human being finds it hard to survive if their temporality is restricted to a diameter of ten minutes.

Again, there is an ecological resonance here: agrilogistics compresses temporality to diameters that are dangerous to lifeforms, including humans.

 No I’m not depressed…but something is happening.

AGRILOGISTICS
An agricultural program so successful that it now dominates agricultural techniques planet-wide. It arose in the Fertile Crescent 12 000 years ago. Toxic from the beginning to humans and other lifeforms, and now responsible for a huge amount of global warming. It led to industry, the other huge global warming factor. Though toxic, it has been wildly successful, because the program is even more compelling than Candy Crush. It operates blindly, just like a computer program. It promises to eliminate anxiety and contradiction—social, physical and ontological—by establishing thin rigid boundaries between human and nonhuman worlds, and by reducing existence to sheer quantity. Agrilogistics is the smoking gun behind the (literally) smoking gun responsible for the Sixth Mass Extinction Event.

An ancient Roman bronze youthful right arm from a statue, the fingers spread wide against the ground, perhaps representing a wrestler or fallen soldier.

There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard
