The idea of the end of resources comes from Malthus, but it can be
traced much back in time, to some misconceptions of what is a resource
from our evolutionary past. It is though naturally that a resource is
something produced by the heart, which is not in the hand of the man
to fabricate it. This is due to the fact that the hunter-gatherer
clans where we evolved had no innovation, there were no agriculture
nor industry nor cattle, so the game passed by and the wild vegetables
depleted locally and the clans had to be nomads in permanent search of
new resources. Infanticide for lack of resources and to keep it in
manageable number for the movements were common practice.
Many misconceptions come from this primitive mind: because the
resources are finite, more for me means less for you, because we can
no fabricate plants nor animals.
The refusal to admit that the modern economy is not a zero sum game.
The fact is that we can fabricate plants and animals, and produce new
kinds of energy, and find new resources. Most of the most advanced and
valuable thigs are made with matherials that were worthless before.
Petrol only formed dangerous swamps for the catle before the
combustion engine. Sand were just sand before the silicon revolution.
The univese is full of energy materials and space at the disposal of
the human intelligence. At this moment we have not found any contender
in the property rights of the vicinity.
To cry for any foreseeable scacity in the future is .... primitive. We
are hearing these cries since the beginning of humanity.
The coming of an apocalypsis is an innovation of the judaic and
christian mindset that the post-christian sects have inherited.
apocalypse means a time of hope (parousia) and suffering at the en of
the time, that inaugurates a new era. Since Joaquim de Fiore (XIII
century) all the western
movements had a form of another belief on apocalipticism or/and utopic
This apocalipticism is so deep in the western mindset, that the Naya
prophecy of the end of the world is not so. It is a western
re-interpretation of a no-ending cyclic calendar by western esoterics.
The two reinterpretations: one, the end of the world in 2012 and the
other, the beginning of a new era, are just a direct derivations of
the double interpretation of the Christian apocalypse.
Hear Hear! What mystifies me, more than anything, is the pessimism
and over loathing of the alarmist. We are alive, can we at least make
the best of it? I grew up in something of an apocalyptic cult -
Christian fundamentalist missionary, constantly told that 'evil
communists' where coming at any minute to torture harm me for 'my belief
in Jesus'. Joining the US Navy cured me of that. Then I discovered
physics, logic and philosophy. How liberating to my soul that was! Now I
hear all this stuff about how humans are "harming the Earth", as if....
The entire premise of climate alarmism seems centered on some cultish
Earth worship rubbish.
