|The Sixth Mass Extinction is Underway|
It is clear that the Earth with its natural environment is a host to carbon-based life forms, including human civilization, thus, if human civilization maintains a symbiotic relationship, i.e., a mutualistic relationship, with the Earth along with its natural environment, both survive and both live.
If, on the other hand, human civilization destroys the environment of the Earth, then human civilization is alien to that environment, but more than that, it is a pathogenic alien that destroys the host as well as itself (Confusing "Civilization" With "Species").
Since that civilization will have destroyed what it must have to survive and live, it will have committed suicide by committing ultimate ecocide, the final catastrophe (On The Origin of Catastrophe).
That a priori knowledge is difficult to deny, so denialists choose to deny the body of a posteriori knowledge, i.e., that human civilization is in the process of destroying its host (The U.S. Government Report & The IPCC Fifth Report Are In Agreement).
There are deep-seated dynamics "down under the ground" in our subconscious cognition which come from one source of one type of that denial.
One reason for such denial can be considered "innocent," in the sense of it not being criminal psychotic behavior, but another one cannot be considered "innocent" (compare: Agnotology: The Surge - 8, MOMCOM's Mass Suicide & Murder Pact - 5).
Many examples can illustrate the point further - here is one:
(What is Your Family Myth?). These types of myth-denial behaviors find a way into our minds, and sink deep down "where the sun does not shine."
I remember the beginning of an important Fabian myth in April, 1942. We were in the kitchen and my mother was crying. We asked why and she simply said, "Grandma Gilbertson died today of cancer." No details. Perhaps she didn't have the strength, or see the need, to decide how to embellish the lie. A true statement would have been, "Today Grandma Gilbertson committed suicide." Yet my
It was thirty years later when I told my mother that I had learned the truth from an aunt. When I asked her why she had given a false explanation for Grandma's death, my mother answered simply. "Your father was afraid he might have inherited his mother's mental illness." My parents undoubtedly believed they were wise in choosing to deny the reality of how she died. Also, of course, this was during a time when suicide was seldom mentioned. So denial was a desirable alternative to the continual scrutiny and evaluation my father imagined he would face if we children, and others, knew the truth.
Take for example, the nation-as-family myth:
(Security: Familyland, Fatherland, or Homeland?). That "our exceptional
... a common metaphor, shared by conservatives and liberals alike -- the Nation-as-Family metaphor, in which the nation is seen as a family, the government as a parent and the citizens as children ... It’s no accident that our political beliefs are structured by our idealizations of the family. Our earliest experience with being governed is in our families. Our parents “govern” us: They protect us, tell us what we can and cannot do, make sure we have enough money and supplies, educate us, and have us do our part in running the house. So it is not at all surprising that many nations are metaphorically seen in terms of families: Mother Russia, Mother India, the Fatherland. In America, we have founding fathers, Daughters of the American Revolution, Uncle Sam, and we send our collective sons and daughters to war. In George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, the voice of the totalitarian state was called Big Brother. As George Lakoff discussed at length in his 1996 book, Moral Politics, this metaphorical understanding of the nation-as-family directly informs our political worldview. Directly, but not consciously. As with other aspects of framing, the use of this metaphor lies below the level of consciousness.
That myth eventually develops in the deep-down-under subconscious world of the machinations of the human amygdala as modified by our cultural amygdala.
