Gabriel, why do you feel the need to impose an anthropocentric ranking on
this circumstance? Yes, We human beings have ascended to the apex of a blip
in the cosmic narrative where we shine forth as a glaring embarrassment to
the very notion of consciousness itself— so before you go ordering the
value of life forms into a tidy taxonomy please consider the simple truth
that human consciousness does not confer meaning on the universe. For
thousands of generations indigenous peoples all over this glorious planet
that is our only home lived in an inseparable kinship with swimmers,
flyers, and crawlers who were all part of a magic reality much greater and
inscrutable than the mechanistic materialism upon which the narrow set of
perceptions you are interjecting here are based. . . Why don’t you strip
naked, go plunge in the creek and ask one of these steelhead what the
meaning of life is- you might get some coherence, clarity, and connection.

We are lost unto our very selves because we have disavowed our totemic
connections to the intricate tapestry of life. Seems like you’ve had your
mind co-opted by political correctness to an extreme degree. I don’t think
that anyone here is intent upon sloughing off the collateral horrors of
the Transadministrational Corprotocracy and the unbridaled fetishistec
consumer lifestyle that underpins all of our toxic techno-industrial
culture. So that’s all another dialogue.

We are all swimming to the other side

 Be well

Andrew
