"I feel deep shame when I look into the eyes of my grandchildren and think
how much damage has been done to planet Earth." -- Jane Goodall Time Aug 18, 2002
We need to become proactive in our quest to save
ecosystems from destruction, saving, as well, their wildlife
species from the progressing extinctions witnessed within Earth's environment!
We need a rooted movement to restore and conserve
human wildlife -- our human naturality, the natural human condition,
evolved within the wild Earth-life, called wilderness or the wild.
The onus of the Environmental Movement must be shifted
into our inner selves, into the constituent makeup of our human
being, spirit, mind, heart, soul, consciousness, perception,
intelligence, families, communties, culture and life way.
We need a Human Renaturalization Movement, the only
pathway back into our original, evolved, natural nature-
human relationship. This movement must enable the people
their bought-off representatives the sustainability, well-being
and fate of Earth's humanity and all of Earth's ecosystems-
Without this movement into the restoration and
conservation of Earth's human wildlife-- unpolluted human
perception, mind, consciousness, community, culture and
lifeway; we are doomed to remain victims trapped in a
reactive mode, reacting to the diverse pollutions of humanity.
Civilization's manifold pollutions of childhood's mind,
consciousness, spirit, being, self, life and world are
the original and generating source of adulthood's
pollutions of Earth's evolved, natural environment as well as
The pollutions of our children develop the invasive,
alien, behavioral patterns of corporations and governments:
develop the anti-nature and anti-human nature doctrines
and enterprises of our science and education, paving
the human pathway into corporate and govermental
destructions piercing all life within Earth-life-world.
The source of the ongoing destructions of all the pristine,
beauties and treasures of life out there is the ongoing
destruction of the pristine, beauties and treasures within us.
The random destruction of Earth's natural environment
springs from the precise destruction of Her evolved,
natural human nature, being, consciousness, perception,
intelligence, her ecological families, communtities, culture and
We have known for decades that adult behaviors and
enterprises are determined primarily during early childhood
and, secondarily, during the remaining years of youth. To
change what adults are doing out there in "the natural
environment;" we must change what they (we) are doing to
the natural environment within human perceptions,
senses, minds, hearts, souls, lives, consciousness and
By choosing proaction over reaction, we commence
restoring and conserving the unpolluted, naturality of our
children. We move toward staging an ongoing rebellion
against the artificialization of childhood development being
waged by the commercialism, corporatism and sci-
technologism of power and profit seeking enterprises of
every stripe, imaginable and creatable.
The people of the Earth must reclaim the natural, human
environment within themselves, before they can reclaim
the natural environment "out there."
The destruction of the human environment within us
is the generating source of the destruction of the nonhuman,
natural environment "outside us."
It is non-natural human minds, hearts and souls that are
creating non-natural environments for both humanity and
To save Humanity and Earth-life, we must clean up, restore
and liberate our children, via our childhood.
To redeem our lost humanity, we must restore natural,
human nurturing within the context of natural
ecosystems. Human re-naturalization is human
To love our children is to uncage them; to return them
to Earth's natural relationships with natural family,
community, and ecosystem.
Modern, commercial, materialistic science is blind to our
human nurturome, which receives the new-born human
organism and its genome. Young parents must behold the
reality of our nurturome; and form a movement to restore it.
Materialistic science rejects it; the people must embrace it.
Our arrogant, Modern thinking has tried everything else;
and will continue to try more and new everything elses:
everything but the oldest solution and medicine (and what
every good shaman primordially knew), restoring the union
of Earth's human nature with Earth's living nature.
The fate of our human species lies in the deep, instinctive
hands and hearts of parents and eco-communities; not in
formal, commercialized, corporatized education.
The human journey has, for eons, been led by
the manifold forms of love, springing from pure,
unpolluted, parental love, growing outward and upward
into Earth-life's pure, unpolluted, human eco-families and
eco-communities, cradled in Earth-life.
