Might Have To Start A Daily What Are They (i.e., Homo sapiens a.k.a. "wise ones") Thinking

I know that I'm being pretty harsh on you humans, but my whole point in this blog is to show that you may not be as rational as you think you are.  Why would I do such a thing?  

It all boils down to your treatement of the environment; if you don't treat each other with respect - what does that say for the treatment of something like a tree or fish?

I won't expound on these postings - I'll just let them speak for themselves.  


Blog 3: A Continuation Of The Need For The Human Race To Get In Charge Of Itself Psychologically

I need a short name for what is lacking; I call it the ecological conscience.  Ecology is the science of communities, and the ecological conscience is therefore the ethics of community life.  I will define it further in terms of four case histories, which I think show the futility of trying to improve the face of the land without improving ourselves. Aldo Leopold in The Ecological Conscience (1947)


My Fish's Sense Of Humor

Although I was highly offended by Rodney Dangerfield's one-liner in Caddyshack - Last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it. - I just think this cartoon by Scott Hilburn is hilarious...don't you? 

To make it match the other two hats, he could have had that hat on the bear turned the other way (that is if he'd harvested a male of your species)!  Now wouldn't that have been funny...especiallly if it was cold in that bar.  

Although we fishes are often in very cold water, we don't have to worry about such a thing.

This tendency to avoid problems and the emotional suffering inherent in them is the primary basis of all human mental illness.  Since most of us have this tendency to a greater or lesser degree, most of us are mentally ill to a greater or lesser degree, lacking complete mental health.”  M.
