Social media and nudity…..

The title might be deceiving but in a sense people are nude when they publish something on the net. Photographs, videos, comments, reviews, they can be jumping around forever, I personally catch sometimes some of the above,  20 years old and still up there, can’t be erased, modified, they are simply laying there and when the search word is the right one, they come up.

Social Media is the simplest way to post photos, videos, comments and unfortunately “other” stuff. Anybody feels the necessity to say something, to publish something and this is where the title comes into life. Most people write with huge shortcomings on their native language, mistakes of any  kind can be found, if they went to school, school did not work for them, they are nude on the web, As part of the ignorance problem they do not know they are and do not even take the 30 secs check up  -at least- on a  spelling corrector.

Anybody feels entitled to give an opinion of anything, no matter how ignorant is on the matter, not having the qualifications to do so and not taking the simple step of visiting the easiest, Wikipedia, The result…..another way to show nudity.

Personal fanaticism, lack of consideration to others, lack of respect for others thoughts, filling their messages with information that is totally irrelevant (or embarrassment) to others, personal feelings for the person beside them are other ways of showing nudity on social media.

There is a line between what is personal (all of it) and what can be shared but most people -the majority- do not seem to find it, it is like the TV reality shows (reality craps) now, there are no boundaries, everything seems to be fair to get their personal goals, for me it is the sickening view of advertising and celebrities, what seems to be driving this world to its future, not precisely the brightest one.

Doomsday, really?

There are three million millionaires in the USA that do not pay taxes because their assets are registered in tax paradise “countries” around the globe, many have another citizenship, a great prove of patriotism, no doubts about it.

There are also three million doomsday preppers, they have even a convention, a TV series in NatGeo, websites, facebook and social media pages and a whole industry that provides them with all what they need, costly, ridiculously fashioned and very successful but …..what is a doomsday prepper? A doomsday prepper is a guy, working alone, with friends, with his family, that believes de-facto that in case of a catastrophe the federal/state government will not help him/them to survive any life threatment situation, it can be an earthquake, a cyclone, a hurricane, a tsunami, a nuclear plant explossion, economic crisis, a war of any kind, bio threats, nuclear attacks from other countries, terrorism, comets, asteroids, solar flares, magnetic fields, gamma rays and whatever you can put into your imagination.

The rule of thumb is that you need a supply of food, water, energy, a bunker, hundreds of guns and ammunition (easily there) and training to stop any of their hungry citizens that did not prepare for that, to invade your space to take advantage of what you did to protect your family.

My conclusion is simple, there are out there at least six million guys who do not care about their country, government, society, institutions, marines, armed forces, FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, fellow citizens, for them God Bless America and The Land of the Free are just a songs they sing on baseball games, the only important people are them!

Man…inhuman?

Man has broken all the schemes in the animal world, all other organisms of all kinds show a behavior based on their strict genetic code that regulates them and Nature takes care to mediate before any alteration on the balance occurs, ensuring the Biological Diversity that has allowed life on Earth shortly after its formation (some 3,000-3,500 million years ago) and the development of advanced life dating back around 500 million years.

The man began to write its own evolutive storyline about 7 million years ago, won the title of Homo sapiens merely some 100,000 back and reached adulthood after the last ice age, 10,000 years ago.

Since then he has been able to bring to extinction countless species of plants and animals by wholesale hunting, poaching or destroying the habitats and biodiversity. Man sets a price on everything, not only to products and services but to land, environment, animals, plants and even human life. Wars are a way to use his animal inherited component to go beyond reason and reach his ultimate goals. Man kills but not to get the kill to eat, man kills to obtain power, kills for money, kills for sex, he even kills for pleasure. The other fellow humans are only worth to the extent that they are useful, cities are important because they focus their chances on economic revenues, now cities are almost miniature polluted countries. Man closes his eyes and turns his head to the limited capacity of the planet’s resources, breeds wildly in numbers and not even cares about the impoverished world he will leave to his descendants. On the one hand we see billionaires showing off their fortunes, mainly obtained over the innocence or human stupidity and shallowness and at the same time over a billion people are starving or eating very poorly but a billion pets are fed as parasites buying its “love”….

Humanity is a concept based on a the human capacity to show a whole set of feelings that animals can’t because they do not have them but this man is getting more and more hypocritical by the day, more heartless, more cruel, more inhuman.

MAN, a mistake In Evolution?

During the last four billion years when the first unicellular organisms started life on earth, Nature has done countless experiments on evolution, millions of them have not been successful and the species evolved from it had a short living path on the Planet, in geological terms.
The successful ones produced, among millions of species, the dinosaurs (150 million y.o.), crocs, turtles, birds and mammals, only to talk about big vertebrates. Man started as Homo perhaps 7 million years ago but became modern man about a hundred thousand years back and the final evolution took shape after the last ice age, barely 10.000 years ago, the only Homo species alive.
What is the future of man as a species? Despite ALL other organisms, man can think, is able to design and construct things, create art and culture, Science and Technology, Health and medicines, but at what price? Man is specially good destroying stuff, especially the Nature around them for his own short term benefit. In fact man is the only living organism that do not follow the principles of Nature, a paradox after having tried for millenia to understand how it works. Despite all knowledge available we do not know but a nano-fraction of Nature and in general terms we do not care, we behave as if the Universe revolves around us.
What is the expectancy of man’s life on earth? Minimal if compared with modern living animals, besides that, man make things easy for Nature, killing among themselves and polluting or consuming the resources needed for their survival. Man will not stand another thousand years, thinking very optimistically. Man seem to be one of those mistakes of Nature in terms of Evolution.

Footprint of mankind

The “first man standing” is recognized by science to  be 7 million years old, although many say that humans became people about 70.000 years ago when they  started to leave evidence of art and caring for the deads. Modern man (Homo sapiens, in italica), about 15 to twenty thousand years of age. Besides bones,  that will be fossils some time, as other living organisms have left, man will leave a collection of man-made artifacts, as well as the result of its actions and intervention  over the environment, wars and more.

What do you thing is the most likely human footprint mankind will leave on the planet when we will be just another species who passed by thru  the geological  history of earth? How much will it last?
