Climate change is happening: increasing natural disasters, desertification, rising ocean levels, ocean acidification, and mass extinction of species. But as dramatic as these changes seems, are we perhaps overstating their importance?
Animals have always impacted their environment, albeit not at this pace. Yet the kind of fear mongering that exists on climate change may be a direct result of humankind’s ego and the denial that our universal presence is minuscule and impermanent.
Faced with problems that appear too large or complex to deal with can be demoralising. The only way to surmount feelings of narcotisation is to accept that change is part of life.

In the 21st century, the matrix illusion still persists. The question is, what pill will you take?
Hopefully the right one.
