When I was younger I hoped to make a difference and joined groups that cared about the ecology and animals but have learned that multinationals are god and that all humans care about is money.
The human plague is making all life extinct:
and not that far away.
I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago when the human population was only 7.4 billion:
It is now more than 7.8 billion.
Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.
We ignore people and organisations that tell us that we are making all life extinct:
We ignore the satire in movies like the remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “Avatar”
So I am not expecting my short sci fi to have any impact.
It is intended as sympathetic magic.
I thought that I would quote a few lines from this short story:
“The Nirahns whom could see close ups of the planet on their “view screen” saw people and buildings just disappear. One minute there were humans and buildings all over the planet. And then they were gone. They watched vegetation grow at an accelerated speed.
Kunapipi/Anne awoke on the first day of the New Earth. She had slept in a humpy and awakened to kookaburras laughing.”
I chose the name Kunnapipi as she is an Indigenous Australian mother goddess:
But this story is not about the “real” Kunnapipi.
and be kind to nonhuman life
