Many Excellent points, Paul and well said.paulmcleod67 wrote:I generally avoided Standing's stuff thinking him to be in the mold of Dyer et al
Then I got interested in Les Shroud's work , whom I do respect, and after watching his "Survivorman: bigfoot" episodes many times over?
I still don't watch Standings stuff, why? Simply because it's about the money for him and not the epiphany the knowledge should generate for humanity.
What that epiphany would mean to the average individual is subjective, but I myself would like to see more care taken of each other
whilst in an environment, which truth be said , is theirs and no longer ours.
I'm sure many would disagree with that statement but having turned 50 this year I finally understand what is truly wrong with our society.
We are not only becoming isolated from nature, as time goes by we are becoming isolated from each other.
That would be an individuals doom in tribal days gone by, because a human being is a physically weak thing compared to the rest of
the biosphere and sure to become either prey or fertilizer, if left out from his concrete cave too long.
We are evolving away from the cradle of the natural environment and becoming aliens on our own planet.
Standing is a man in love with the deep green, high places, nothing wrong with that, however love of the outdoors alone will never pay the bills
or meet the needs of a person living in the throw away technological, fast food, short attention span western world.
And in America the only dream left for the common people is to be a star....whatever that means...usually achieved to their
detriment and ultimate demise, Micheal Jackson, Prince and an ocean of other lonely egotistical narcissistic, socially isolated loners.
I have my epiphany as do many others here. The question is what do you do with the knowledge now?
... this bit... "We are evolving away from the cradle of the natural environment and becoming aliens on our own planet."
... An oft-repeated thought in my life witnessing humans is the impression humans are the aliens here, the descendants of the Nephilim are humans, NOT the Hairy Men as many 'researchers' propose.
...If aliens messed with any genetics of existing animals, surely WE are the progeny, NOT 'mythical' hominids surviving and thriving with no technology, and hence NO impact on the natural world.
