Collective consciousness 35 – Animal rights 04: the spider

“Is there some destiny within us that performs the pattern of our life, or is it the actual experiences which shape it? Are the experiences we encounter predestined, or do we feel them so intensely and remember them so well because of an inner need? 

The experience of unfathomable powers is unmistakable, and so is the feeling of a web of some kind with filaments that radiate out into unknowable distances. Unsurprisingly, the spider is one of the most ancient symbols of fate.”

Liz Greene – The Astrology of Fate

Everything in the universe is connected by a weave of intricate strands. It is our fates or our destiny. Every choice we make in the present builds upon choices we have previously made. Every day we are shaping others’ destinies for generations to come. All lives are connected by a web of fate. Like in a spider web, each section of the web is a discreet part of the whole, yet the tiniest ensnared insect will set the entire web vibrating. 

Whether the spider wins depends on how skilfully she has woven her web, how quickly she reacts, and the changes of the captured insect to struggle free. The web is a fate, but what the actors do upon it will decide the outcome.

Collective consciousness 32 – The “general will”

NHT

If COP26 participants were really serious about solving the climate crisis they should have made, at a minimum, the following pledges:

  1. Eliminate all fossil fuel subsidies, which according to a recent IMF study amounts to $5.9 trillion in 2020;
  2. Ban banks from funding new fossil fuel projects;
  3. Make ecocide an international crime similar to genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes;
  4. Demand the cancellation of debt for lower income countries, which now spend several times more on servicing debt than dealing with the challenges of global warming;
  5. Create large-scale funding sources to assist with the transition to a green economy.
