Storylines: Growing hope

Hope is a fragile thing in 2021. With the current pandemic and the uncertainty in so many aspects of life, our hope is being shadowed by fear. It is profoundly affecting our humanity.

Gary Opit, Wooyung

I appreciated the letter by Lucas Wright (17 February) on the Great Reset conspiracy fantasy. With our privileged, western, simplistic understanding of reality, it is quite natural to imagine elites changing the world for themselves.

However, the global human community is a chaotic blend of billions of individuals surviving under a massive array of environmental and social conditions. The rich and powerful will be recycled back into the powerful planetary ecosystems that have always ruled us.

The Great Reset conspiracy is of no consequence to the great planetary reset that is rapidly approaching. The basic universal law that every action has an equal and opposite reaction cannot be ignored. The stable optimal climatic conditions that created humanity and our civilisation has been disturbed by our success.

The age of mammals and of humanity is almost done. The age of reptiles and invertebrates is upon us as temperatures soar with runaway global heating. Normal planet-wide tropical conditions and high sea levels punctuated by chaotic shifts in climate will quickly erase any memory that humanity ever existed.

Crocodiles and other reptiles will rule, even dinosaur-like animals may arise. It was never our planet. It has always played with us.

  1. It would appear that dinosaurs and reptiles already rule. We don’t have look far: local, state, and federal governments are full of such animals.
