and the tree was happy..

ginormous to all we’re experimenting with.. hoping for.. ie: the unconditional ness as described in the giving tree.. desperately needed

as to the alt ending via topher payne.. [https://boingboing.net/2020/08/01/alt-ending-to-shel-silverstein.html] on setting boundaries.. makes sense.. in sea world..

as long as we’re trapped here.. we have to.. ie: still thinking in terms of him earning a living.. so need lots of apples to make pies.. that’s whalespeak..

but in a world where people are legit free.. we wouldn’t need to set boundaries (any form of m\a\p) because people would grok enough ness.. wouldn’t be spending their days on some job or even on fighting eco destruction et al..

ie: imagine if we just focused on listening to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..

what the world needs most is the energy of 8b alive people
