How can one possibly overcome the cacophony of spiritual tinnitus sounding out our squandered opportunities to live together and survive? Commonality. Not conformity.



and the larger point for me is that if you seek violence as an answer or solution at best it is temporary and unsustainable
how much blood spilled is enough? and who decides?
initiating violence against peaceful humans is a sure sign that your argument/premise is false/flawed
when it comes to violence/war/conflict it seems that the vulnerable pay for the sins of the invulnerable

political shoehorning will get you revolutionary bunions!
pass it on!

The irony is that the individual ants in Sir David's video are not black ants and red fire ants. The wood ant inhabitants are red and black in their coloration; red with black abdomen as are the field ants that he introduces from the jar, not in the jar. Almost if not identical in size and color.

Individual giving of blessings and inner light to other people. How do we deal with the ancient upheavals of tribalism? We don't. Children do. We stand opposed to violent oblivion or we die trying with our beloved ancestors as children in our hearts. Forgiveness. Yes. Irony. 
Sure, I believe. I make no apologies for having faith in something bigger than all of it. Always listening. Etheric. 

Also, ants of all colors and sizes will be fighting for survival here on earth long after they have consumed the remnants of prideful man. That's what I call Formic Acid...

how do you feel about what was actually posted by attenborough?

and who is shaking the jar in Cuba? Hong Kong? Venezuela?

in other words who is the oppressor? and who are the oppressed?

"...While this quote may ring true to some readers, two things need to be considered. First, this quote did not come from Attenborough. And two, we are unaware of any scientific experiment that showed how red and black ants would co-exist in a glass jar until the jar was shaken..."

Maybe. However some more food for thought.  In a world where your physical identity is everything over your individuality, you and I are identical inside and out and will be treated as such.  Enjoy.
