Sensual Sci-Fi Saturday Sounds — Oh yeah, we got some serious sweet stuffing for the earpieces.

I could easily keep going with this musical scoring, but hey, the post uploading just might overdo things at my end of cyber-land.  Sooooooo, from the incredible Cloud Atlas, the very fun Fifth Element, the painfully timely Avatar, the life water of the Fountain and all the way Until the End of the World here’s some real deals via the world of illusion aka film. Oh yes, and the questions of what is it to be alive and human and love life a la Blade Runner.

Real time Avatar–Explore Amazon Watch

On artistatexito’s riverblog is a story being told and retold in so many ways everywhere. These are stories of wanton destruction of the Natural world to the view that human life is totally expendable in all the spheres in which politicians and profiteers strive to conquer and control everything and everyone  that opposes their greed driven agendas.  James Cameron’s film Avatar brought all sorts of people into the screenlands to see the big beautiful blue people confront the might of industrial development backed by military support. Who did you root for? Hmm? Is there anyone out there who did not want the beautiful blue people  to succeed in protecting their world from gross exploitation? Now imagine that the people are not big and blue and startling beautiful exotic beings but ordinary brown-skinned people who have been living in the rainforests all their lives.  Does their lack of intriguing  physical appearances change how we view the same conflict and issues?  Do we support them less because they are not creations of movieland but are flesh and blood human beings? Well such real people in Ecuador have been waging a legal war with the oil giant Chevron for over 17 years.  Other indigenous people have been and are currently engaged in similar struggles to protect their homes which have importance for the health of the entire Earth. Is everyone and everything expendable for profit? If you’re thinking so what am I supposed to do? I’m just one person with no connections to anyone important. Well we are all important. We are all connected. One thing we call all do is share information. Knowledge is power.  The more of us who are aware and know what’s happening–the more difficult it becomes for the insanity to continue. We can imagine better ways of living in which everyone and every living thing WINS! The way things have been and are does NOT have to continue.  Person by person we are those who dream, imagine and can create wonderful new ways to live.  We begin by supporting each other through awareness, tolerance and mutual respect. We can support each other by sharing knowledge.  

Oil is a limited resource. We must cease being dependent upon it.  The video from Amazon Watch is direct and to the point.

We are all connected. We are all related.

What’s happening? It’s the struggle to survive. And it’s coming to your home whether you believe it or not. This isn’t an “if”, it’s a “when”. Think the issues in Avatar were just a figment of a scriptwriter’s active imagination? LOL.  Indigenous people are not big and blue. They’re red, black, and brown people and they’ve got more than a few clues based on direct experience.

Yes, there’s more news in the world than CNN, Fox, ABC and the BBC might lead one to think. Discover our world.

Got kids? Love our planet? Dig Avatar?

Are you watching the Amazon? If you’re a parent then you probably want a great place for your children to live and grow in.   We’ve got one planet, Earth.  If you saw Avatar then you already know a great deal about the issues in the Amazon that the Achuar people are facing. They’re just one group of people on the frontlines of knowing what’s going on with our planet’s health.  Curious about the world in which we all live? Visit the Amazon and consider what’s at sake for all of us on Earth.

It’s April. It’s spring, the time of birth and rebirth. Let’s insure that Earth supports many many more springs with love and joy. Give all our children the gift of a healthy world to live in.
