2012 : An Awakening

I saw the movie “2012” last week. The visuals were amazing. The hard work of all the graphics and animation engineers have paid off. But beyond that spectacular visualization of the D-day, there are few messages that the movie is trying to convey.

The end : How it would be? We have been living and planning future for generations to generations. In that run, we have always considered earth as a constant factor. Something that was there, is present and will be there. What if the earth gets sick? How will we get affected. Humans have researched pathology and discovered many viruses and cures for them. Its all based on the concept that human body is a living entity and all that hinders its life or growth is a bacteria or virus. Now if earth is a living body, what are humans? It’s plain that we are the most devastating virus for earth. I would like to comment the words from the movie Matrix.

I’d like to share a revelation I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with their surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to another area, and you multiply, and you multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we … are the cure.

This could be considered from a earth’s perspective. If earth finds a way to completely remove its destructing pathogens, I believe it’s the end of human race. From school days, I have heard a story of birds sitting on buffaloes. My mother told me that the birds eat away the worms on the buffalo’s skin and from the surroundings. It’s the reason that buffalo doesn’t get mad at the bird sitting on its top. I think its already late to have the humans behave to earth as the bird so that both can co-exist in this centuries old equilibrium. But as the saying goes,

Better late than never….
