We are all on this giant rock called Earth, traveling through space at an average speed of 67,000 mph. But no one notices or thinks about this as we go about our daily tasks. People study the vast workings of space, the stars, and what’s beneath our feet and the one often overlooked, the area within ourselves. All three of these are connected.
Those of you who are aware of the video ‘The need to grow’ will be familiar with the inventor Michael Smith. His top priority is to repair the soil, and I have followed Michael for over a year now in my research on soil health.
Based on that video and his work, I think breaking it down to a readable form is one more way of creating awareness. Estimates show that there are approximately 60 years of farmable soil left. The fact that the Earth has lost one-third of its farmable land in the last 40 years is frightening. Civilizations rise and fall on their soil quality, according to Science daily.
Another way of putting it is, here in the US, we are losing soil at ten times the rate it takes to regenerate it. These losses to one of our most precious resources are not sustainable, and we are responsible!
Smith says we have an ‘extraction mentality’ as in, what does it cost to bring it out of the Earth? We never ask what the Earth has paid to get it in!
We need to start shifting from a death-based or harvest-based mentality into a life-based economy.
Industrial agriculture dictates that we have to go with this machine intensive, chemical-intensive method of harvesting food, but this is a false economy.
Actually, the more you care for the soil, the more food you can grow.
Smith also says you cannot build the world from dead soil as the ecosystem will begin to unravel, and things are already collapsing. We can see it all around us. Food essentially has no nutrients in it anymore.
People and companies know all this, but it is not hurting so much to stop or is it that we don’t see the sick and dying from disease because of it as we don’t connect the cause.
Will we only stop when we are at the edge of the cliff? Will it be too late, then?
It didn’t take long to tear it down, but we need an equal solution, the inverse of that to build it back up again, says Michael, coupled with a collective awareness by the people.
Michael Smith’s solution is to take natural biological processes and accelerate the regeneration of soil. Something that would usually take decades or a few hundred years he can do in a matter of days.
“Modern agriculture is the most destructive human activity on the planet. Can’t we feed the world without destroying it?”
The difference between death and life, extinction, and abundance is the difference between dirt and soil.
As many stars as there are above, a hand full of healthy soil contains more microorganisms than people on the planet.
The entire food chain and our very existence are made possible by the billions of tiny creatures coexisting right under our feet in galactic proportions.
It brought us back to the dawn of agriculture some 10,000 years ago; the simple act of tilling the land has been disruptive to fragile soil life in the ability to hold water and turning soil carbon into atmospheric carbon dioxide.
With the invention of machinery and powerful new chemicals, industrial agriculture has exponentially exasperated the issue, leading to roughly 30 soccer fields of soil loss every minute.
We have seen seventy percent of our planet’s soils destroyed. At this rate, Earth will use up farmable soil in 60 years, and without this fertile ground, all ecosystems outside of our oceans become impossible.
We either wake up or guarantee a path to consistent drought, extreme food scarcity, and catastrophic climate change.
I like it when it’s asked –
Suppose our only option is a system with a built-in expiration date. Will we acknowledge our responsibility to this planet and uphold our debt to future generations?
I feel there is a correlation between the above and what we are doing with Compumatrix.
The greed of a few blinded us. The economic system built at the expense of the many will have to change.
Right now, this is all changing right under our noses as the new economic systems using blockchain technology unfolds throughout the world. It goes hand in hand that those that educate themselves on soil health and a healthy economy using technology and brilliant minds that advocate for the good of the planet and humanity. This new mindset will lead future generations to a God-given right of health, wealth, and prosperity.
We do hold the world in our hands. Still, with Compumatrix, we will have the power collectively to do something with the energy. It will put in our hands to cause awareness of the problem to fix it before it is too late..
