When will people understand?

July 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

The truth is so simple and yet so complex we are all connected. When it comes to the Oceans I just said it on July 28th. What happens in the oceans effects every living organism on the planet. How many times do I have to say that? It doesn’t matter how many times I say it. No one is listening to me. However, great people have been saying it for centuries, probably even eons.  John Delaney of Interactive Oceans said it again at TED. Please watch this amazing TED talk about the new technologies wiring an interactive ocean.

Turbulent the sea
Stretching across to  Sado
The Milky Way
-Basho 1689

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.
-T. S. Eliot
