Stopping the Flow
Nobody asked but …
An old TV ad cautioned us, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.” Yet we persist in trying fictions to stem the tide. The news is full of ships wrecked on those hazards to navigation. Let’s pass a piece of legislation outlawing fictions, and the first fiction will be flaunted while the ink is still wet.
As a species, we humans seem to lack affinity with flow and/or nature. But it is only through accepting these elements that we approach freedom. Ignorance may be bliss, although it is against the flow to ignore the consequences of nature. Artificial bliss has its limits. Consequences cannot be disregarded forever.
