Nature’s mirror

Control is nature’s worst enemy. As humans take the driver’s seat, how the wild evolves tells us about how we’ve changed too.

The environment has a good idea about how things should be, and then it meanders with purpose. The oceans and clouds get anxious and bite back if there’s too much external influence, disruption, pollution, etc.

Nature never second-guesses itself. Destruction wipes the slate clean.

Yet, hurricanes run out of energy eventually, as mammatus clouds signal their intent. Ebb and flow need no instruction manual.

But our internal temperature needs re-gauging. As consumers and creators, we too require a pull-back to levels on par with what nature defines as progress.

Trying to break the cycle of life is a recipe for disaster.
