George Monbiot got spirituality right:

Quote:
I like the idea of literal reincarnation: that the molecules of which I am composed will, once I have rotted, be incorporated into other organisms. Bits of me will be pushing through the growing tips of trees, will creep over them as caterpillars, will hunt those caterpillars as birds. When I die, I would like to be buried in a fashion which ensures that no part of me is wasted. Then I can claim to have been of some use after all.


I like the idea of someone eating an apple, chestnut or a plum from the tree I'm buried under.

I agree that is what it appears on the surface.. Not what can be found with a little bit of digging though.


ANy chance you could summarise that? Don't have time to watch it now.


The video is 37 minutes long. To summarise it would take me a lot longer than that, and it could be seen as an inaccurate summary, with bias and all the other accusations.

Would you want to eat something from the tree under which Tony Bliar gets buried? I suppose it could give you the feeling you were biting his lying head off.

I find the idea that big corporations are paying climate activists to change the way the world works which will be to the detriment of those corporations utterly laughable. Every piece of "evidence" against global warming that you post Woodburner leads me to question your sanity even more.

You should look up who has close ties with 5G companies and with extinction rebellion.
