A shifting of parallelisms

Who have we become since technology has started to define us? Once a people in place with nature, now we exists outside of it's equilibrium. This picture is the legally owned by Hank Vos, it's sculptor. I am in no way the owner or proprietor of it.

A parallelism exists between the world of human and nature, that when tampered with, results in an almost irreversible disruption of life. It is this singular perception of nature that leads us to ask, is it necessary to break association from the norm in order to form a new perspective and how does that new-found-awareness benefit future generations? In a sense, mankind’s displacement within existence is forcing its counterpart, nature, to readjust itself into an awkward correspondence.

CoExisting with Nature

Before the marriage of humanity and nature could transpire, man had to give its physical body as a dowry, in order to proper establish itself as a tangible existence in synch with nature. In turn, nature gave man its yields and an executive position over the order of creation. The union, consequently, allowed the mind to freely make use of the natural surroundings but with a visible presence bechance it developed the audacity of a predator. During the appearance of an abnormality in both worlds, drastic steps are taken which do tend to cause more damage than good. Just as nature plays the game of survival of the fittest to keep itself constant, so does our body; Stout characterizes this phenomenon as a neurological misreaction to the current realities of life. Like the insects who can develop a toxic resistant gene under the favor of natural selection, so can our brain perform its own idea of natural selection after undergoing a largely traumatic event. Any overwhelming emotion of high significance causes a dangerous culmination of Broca’s area, largely important in the translation of experience in relation to ourselves and others. Even more significant is the lack of the Broca’s functions in later life, a condition that mimics the proposal that a forward in technology is resulting in a deviation from an inborn “primordial, participatory mode of perception”, thus a sort of evolutionary step back with respect to nature.

Because the human body does reflect the behaviors of nature in terms of its mechanisms and automatic functions, therein lays the ability for both creations to coexist peacefully. What if though, the natural structure created to maintain that unification begins to crumbling under the actions, inadvertent or not, of one power? The relevance of such an action may seem unclear till one recognizes the effects of ignoring the synchronicity laid down as the preservative law of life. A manipulation of ecological relationships is a modification of the human ecosystem; this to some may be a biological revolution destined to address the problem of world hunger in an agricultural victory. There are people who view such use of power as a dangerous insult to whatever divine genetic manufacturer established the complex code of life which we as human beings have yet to break down unconditionally. We as a humanity hold the concerns for each other, subsequently we should question the super powers and mega corporations and seek to hold them responsible if one of their genetically modified plant lives leads to an insect so resistant to all our "pesticides" that it causes a direful domino effect within our agricultural sect.

This was great and deeply detailed. I feel a slight tingle of enlightenment. :3
