"Nature is so complex and its interactions so dynamic that the idea that science could ever understand it all is utterly laughable. We can understand the more simple things that we do to interfere with it: to degrade it, to wreck it. But we can never understand it. It is beyond our comprehension.
The Indian cultures that I know have said that nature is a great mystery. It is so complex, so great, so above us, that we should never be so arrogant to think that we can understand even a little bit of it. But we can understand our nature. We can understand the profit motive. We can understand wrong thinking." ~John Mohawk

A device capable of moving across an open space 3.5 "football fields" in under one second.
Yet somehow able to remain silent and windless?
they realize what that means for their doom.
If they realize anything at all.
There are some weights and some anti-weights.
There are some good energies, and some great.

Gotta get used to that.
Life has many colors. White was not a first.
Tolerance is not optional.
"Decolonization" on a continual basis can be punishing, for sure. But it is required for proper perspective.
Fearful babies who can't even fathom of accepting their punishment ... they lacked courage.
The universe has many places for disgrace, and they are far far far from any beauty.
Just ordered 450 stickers with the new design.
"Turn 45 0ff"
Been making student loan payments of $456.66, too.
Out of school ~14 years and I still have to make payments for that "Accountancy" education while I live in a WORLD WHERE THE WORST FINANCIAL CRIMINAL FAMILY EVER DOESN'T GET HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS LONG.
What are they teaching students these days about their education? What about ethics?
I refused to join criminal empires after I graduated.
I worked in bakeries and pizzerias and restaurants and sandwich shops and coffee shops.
Lived homeless in my car.
The first thing the EVIL CRIMINAL EMPIRE did when getting elected was try to take out the Ethics office. (GAO)
The AG IS A CRIMINAL.
Burn the patriarchy.
And the small but strong (who'd fought and suffered long) ... they retained focus, and they did not buckle.
"The white man always has the flimsiest constructs," one pointed out. And the others in the hivemind agreed.
"His contracts mean nothing," a sapling said. "All of his words are wrong: full of ego and self-promotion." And the others in the forest agreed.
"There was nothing honorable in the white man's signature," the bison hide concluded.
"The language within the text of the Green New Deal stated any new project or development involve, “Obtaining the voluntary, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples for all decisions that affect them, honoring all treaties with Indigenous peoples, and protecting and enforcing the sovereignty and land rights of all Indigenous peoples.”
Nuclear and hydroelectric dams are both zero-emission energy production practices that carry deep toxic and damaging legacies within Indigenous communities and home-lands. There are concentric rings of high rates of birth defects and incidents of cancer that surround every single nuclear facility in the country, increasing with proximity to the facilities.
Nuclear legacy impacts a tremendous number of Indigenous communities, whose rural lands have been seen as “National Sacrifice Areas” by the United States government. In Washington and Oregon, the Yakima, Colville, Nez Perce, Coeur d’Alene, Spokane, Kalispell, Umatilla, and Klickitat all have elevated rates of cancer associated directly with the Hanford Nuclear Reservation and its release of radioactive gases and fluids. The Spokane Tribe in Washington State is impacted by the closed Midnight Mine, which left behind pits containing millions of gallons of radioactive water. The Navajo and Hopi in Arizona have been continuously contaminated by the nuclear industry since 1946."

@indie If magic is just science we don't understand yet, there is more magic in the world every day -- we collectively understand more and more, so individually we have less and less of the picture.
The scientific picture, at least. We certainly never stop growing and learning throughout life, hopefully unraveling some of our personal mysteries.
Nice icon, by the way! Are those yours or an entry to the design challenge?
@kris Thanks! This is the winner of the design contest's artwork; he did a great job and has been paid.
Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life.
We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
