[Quote=tsuchi akurei]just as it has countless times before when it became destructive and overly indulgent.
Who are you thinking of, the Mayan, the Olmecs?
Their cities may have collapsed, their numbers may have dwindled, their original language may have disapeared, but civilization remained etched in their psyches to this day as they continued not only agriculture, but the psycho-sexual organization of aggression and hierarchy.
Don’t confuse the populations that exist now with the populations that existed after the old American civilizations collapsed. The people here got re-civilized when the Europeans came, but that doesn’t mean that the ones who walked away retained everything from the cities. It doesn’t necessarily mean they left everything behind, either. But they did go back to living in relationship with the land and not in spite of the land anymore.

Who i am is revealed in everything i do.[/quote]
What I do also has the power to change who I am. It’s a cycle.
[quote=tsuchi akurei] Civilization will collapse[/quote]
Civilization is the collapse.
Civilization is the collapse of a balanced to an imbalanced psycho-dynamic.
Civilization is merely a symptom, not the psycho-dynamic root-cause.
At this point, civilization represents both the symptom and the cause. Since we are born into the symptom-hood and drenched in its mythologies from our earliest memories, the “symptoms” cause and reinforce the symptoms of each new generation.
