A Very Short but Tangled Tragi-comic Plot

Each month will contain ecologic/economic meaning. For us – for developed economies – all of which are agricultures, or dependent on agricultures – that meaning will contain a large thought-stifling smog of tragedy. We think we cannot do what is right, because of the tragedies our action will cause.

.
The central premise of all I write is that we must embrace tragedy – that there is no other course, but to take the tragic rite of passage towards the light on the other side. Our ways of life are causing terrible tragedies. It is illogical to say that we cannot act out remedies, because of the tragedies they’d cause to our tragedy-causing ways of life.

.
For me, another essential mantra, is that comedy and tragedy share identical plots – the one of mind – the other of heart. Of course, as we see in the best writing and hear in the best and deepest music, comedy and tragedy can weave together as one – just as heart and mind are one

.
It is illogical to say that we cannot act out remedies, because of the tragedies they’d cause to our tragedy-causing ways of life. – Is that not the archetype for the best stage comedies and tragedies?

.
Of course, we could also say, it is illogical to say that we cannot act out remedies, because of the ridicule they’d draw from those still engaged in ridiculous ways of life.

.
That last applies to most of peer-dependent, career-dependent academia and in particular to “climate science”.

.
It applies to me in conversation with friends and family – I am ridiculous to some and dangerously tragic to others. Usually I draw back – accepting the role of clown and resenting the role of evil darkness! My life is entangled with theirs. I’ve no wish to disentangle. How on Earth do we disentangle from our common tragedy, together? One thing I know, is that I’ve only partially disentangled myself.
