BIODIVERSITY LOSS  (& The Future of Planet Earth)

PREAMBLE: Are we (humans) as a species progressively & statistically destroying our own home (The Planet Earth)??? … & starting with “lesser” species all life on it? … & as a result of this process endangering the very existence of absolutely everything (ALL races, religions, nationalities, loved ones & families & even our entire planet) … because of this massive vandalism of our own “inheritance” … & are we NOW inviting intervention because of our selfish, illogical & progressively self destructive actions from an intergalactic source???

1.) In 2010 20% of the world’s 25,000 species are now threatened with extinction.

2.) Species are now dying out 1,000 times faster than at any time in human history;

3.) 75 % of crop diversity was lost between 1900-2000 because of human actions.

4.) 12% of birds, 21% of mammals & 30% of amphibians are now under threat.

5.) Each year 300,000 marine mammals are caught “accidentally” (known as bycatch).

6.) In total 40 million tonnes of these “accidents” (jellyfish, plankton etc) are caught.

7.) Every year a “green” area the size of England is destroyed (deforestation).

8.) During the last 30 years there has been a 29% decline in all freshwater wildlife.

9.) Warm-water coral has been reduced by over 30% since 1980 (global warming).

10.)The UN now reports that we are destroying three species every hour. .

11.) Wild species are now becoming extinct at about 1,000 times the natural rate.

12.) Biologists report species destruction only previously achieved by asteroid impacts.

13.) Science reports “Current speed of global warming is fastest in a million years“..

1.)

Are there actually other universes in existence, (such as parallel, spiritual, diametrically opposite or universes of time)?… Don’t scoff…. Go to "Intergalactic Art & The Future of The Planet Earth"

2.) Define Infinity: A quantity or state of being (including time & space) that is without any limit whatsoever (absolute eternity of past & future time, & beyond all & every parameter of universe & space) … BUT, if both time & space are infinite, then there can be no “beginning or end” of time, nor can “our” universe contain “everything that exists” ( because infinity cannot be given a size) … Thus as a species… the most basic bits of this puzzle are still totally beyond our grasp....

There is belief in Animism which is that things (such as trees, rivers, stones & even plants [like Aoe Vera]) have living souls .... There is belief in a spiritual presense  worthy of respect & sometimes fear .... that is why you will often see the trunks of old trees encircled with an orange or red/brown cloth sashes .... Even if you doi not believe in such traditions, definately better not to laugh or scoff at such 2,500+ year old beliefs ... just remember that every sensible person  once knew the world was flat.

    IMPORTANT NOTES …. (from Zeek who has used this so valuable plant for decades ....when available) …. from the dry hills of the Caribbean Islands (where it clings to rocky slopes with almost no water yet appears in perfect health) …. to the erratic seasons of tropical Thailand (Big Gym City, Udon Thani) where he keeps about 50-100 plants scattered in various locations (some photos below).

  • GROW IT YOURSELF or buy living plants (make sure you buy Aloe barbadensis because there are over 250 species of Aloes in the world, (most native to Africa [& not all are suitable for home therapy) .... They can range in size from one inch diameter to massive plants of 6 foot (There were a couple like that at Big Gym City but they got too tall & top heavy & we had to send them to the Thai countryside[retirement in the lovely forest]) .... & although most Aloes have some medicinal (or commercial) uses, by far the most commonly known is the Aloe barbadensis ….
  • KEEP ALOE VERA IN YOUR HOME …. You will need about 4-10 fully grown (& double that number of "trainees") plants to maintain your supply, depending on how many people are using them & how often (eating &/or applying externally etc) …. Don’t cut & use the baby plants if you can avoid it) …. Aloe Vera is not too difficult to look after (even in colder climates) …. BUT all Aloes are semitropical, and may only grow them outdoors in areas where there is no chance of freezing (they store [inside the leaves] 95% water & are thus extremely srnsitive to frost) .... 
  • ALOE VERA IS GENERALLY A VERY TOUGH PLANT  (& fight very hard for their life).... & can make excellent house plants when given sufficient light & reasonable care .... Aloe Vera has a shallow, spreading root system & if you must repot them choose a wider rather than a deeper pot with a near obligatory drainage hole (a 1-2 inch layer of gravel in the bottom of the pot to ensure adequate drainage is beneficial) .... Use good commercial potting mix with extra granite grit, perlite [or coarse sand] added .... Put Aloes in pots outdoors in summer.... & we have had MANY mature specimens that produce  a tall central stem covered with bright colored flowers (with nectar) which little hovering birds (like hummingbirds) absolutely love .... Fertilize once yearly in the spring.
  • PAY STRICT ATTENTION TO LIGHT & DRAINAGE .... because both are VERY important to Aloe Vera, position pots so that they receive plenty of light (or partial sunshine) & are very well drained (don't leave water in trays of pots [it will rot the roots] ....but they will recover when dried out) .... & when "harvesting"always cut off a fat leaf from the very bottom of a mature plant, wash it & store it in the refrigerator (it will keep for several days [maximum a week] with no problem) ….
  • ONE PERSON WILL NEED a minimum of 4 mature plants if you are eating a peeled 2-4 inch section am &/or pm every day (like you should [but read notes at bottom of this report]) …. One mature leaf will provide about 4-6 of these sections, so that a single mature leaf will last you about 2-6 days (in the refrigerator) …. You get your Aloe Vera leaf out when you have finished your morning shower or wash, slice off your section, peel it (easy), chew it(nice) & swallow it (keep it in your mouth for a minute if you have problems there)
  • WHAT!... YOU THINK YOU ARE FINISHED?… Wrong, take the leaf skin & rub it all over your body (particularly where you have problems) …. later you can put lotion on too io you want to moisturize ….If you have hair problems rub the Aloe leaf skin in your hair & then massage it in (sort of vibrate the scalp with stiff fingers, [to promote circulation] then move to the next place, then comb it out (to remove any bits) …. Don’t throw the used leaf skin away, cut it up & put it back around the plant you got it from (& preferably thank the plant for its kind help towards your health)
  • WARNING…There are ONLY A FEW “quite good” commercial preparations of Aloe Vera (not many, & NONE are as good as a living plant) … BUT The quantity & quantity of the active ingredients in many commercial products is SUSPECT (& may be virtually non-existent in some) … If you must buy commercial “packaged” Aloe Vera gel, be as sure as you can that it is from a trusted certified organic source made to Food Grade Standards, & read the ingredients list carefully to check what else has been put in it.
  • SIDE EFFECTS are rare (Zeek has never yet experienced any over decades) but possibilities might (in very rare cases) include: allergies, nausea, tinted urine or liver considerations … Maintain a reasonable level of internal intake .... external application is very easy to monitor.
  • USUALLY AVOID taking Aloe Vera internally if you are a child, pregnant or breast feeding, have kidney or heart disease, or are allergic to garlic or onions (Zeek is allergic to garlic but still eats one clove with every protein meal)…. As always pay careful attention to ALL your body's responses.

OK! THIS IS YOUR ALOE VERA GARDEN .... Yes, I'm sorry it is a bit untidy .... that's because they don't get much attention because everyone is too busy (except when it is time to come & cut a leaf off ... "Oh! NO GOOD ... Please look after them better, OK?" .... 

  • Photo #1: (from left) There are one or two (at most) fat plump leaves at the base of this plant which could be cut off (at the very base) & used ....
  • Photo #2 Way too many adolesant plants on the left side of this pot ...Take them out & repot them seperately [one per pot] & don't give them too much water please ....
  • Photo #3: Yes, one good plant getting "leggy" in the middle ... better put it in a pot by itself (& sort the rest of them out too please) they are all getting starved of nutrition, I think ....
  • Photo #4: The same situation as photo 3 but the pot is too small & the plant looks starved of nutrition too (put some nutrients (mixed with a little good soil, but make sure it can drain) in the BOTTOM of a new bigger pot & put that plant in by itself (don;t give it any water from the top or it won't grow roots (they are a bit lazy with roots [ but they sure can make a lot of babies!]) ....
  • ALOE VERA IS A SO VERY USEFUL PLANT .... a little tempremental (don't forget not too much water or soggy soil (at Big Gym City the Aloe Veras get water about once a week [soil soaked] then leave to dry out in summer & once every 2 weeks (about 1 or 2 cups per plant] in winter) .... or excess sun but otherwise quite easy to look after) ... Photos taken by Woo Chin in Zeek's private (& untidy) garden at Big Gym City, Udon Thani, North Thailand.
