o me, the most beautiful places on Earth are those isolated from people. Given the fact that
humans are generally extremely invasive species, it seems remarkable that a whole continent on this planet
could survive generally uninhabited and unexploited for resources or tourism.
Yet, such continent still exists. We
named it Antarctica, literally meaning "opposite to
the Arctic". And this originally unimaginative title is still a testament to our
One might say the reason for that are harsh conditions, but the other will ask whether these
harsh conditions are there for a reason? Well, if you have ever studied nature, you must have
noticed that everything has many purposes and reasons for existence. Sometimes it is not obvious
at first, but you can be sure there's something hiding below the uninviting and seemingly dead
phenomena. Often, not too deep either.
Take, for example, a simple piece of rock. You might think its presence has no deep
if you lift it up, you'll often see a whole community thriving underneath.
The purpose of the rock for that community is obvious - it shields it from invasion of all
kinds of phenomena.
And modern scientists are finally realizing that life doesn't need much at all to thrive - rocks
and water will do
, and that it might be everywhere.
It shouldn't thus be hard to believe that one purpose of harsh conditions on Antarctica is to keep
invasive species at bay, and, comparing the scale of an ordinary rock with the whole
continent, one can't help but wonder what is the scale of life hiding below Antarctica? What is
so precious that nature spends 90% of the surface fresh water building the barrier of ice
The theory of planetary neurogenesis offers the logical explanation - one purpose of the
whole crust of the planet is to shield the complex life below from invasion (all of that energy
would simply be an overkill just to shield microbes, which can be extremely resilient).
In fact, the existence of layers and crust in any body should be the signal that something more
complex is hidden below
Water is what connects complex life, and in complex bodies (such as Earth), water should be
connecting spatially separated life literally. This is evident even on the surface of a
planet - there's life on either side of any ocean or any river, and there's life in these
oceans and rivers too. As long as the water is flowing - the lives of these lifeforms are
connected to each other, one way or the other.
But sometimes the water will freeze, effectively forming a barrier which will, generally, isolate
one from the other for a particular reason.
And, among many things, Antarctica is just that - a barrier between the surface and the
world below. A barrier that melts when surface life matures for transmigration.
As a general precursor, I have heard the call of ice long time ago, but now Antarctica is starting
to attract the population. And the
population is responding
As proper cancer, one might interpret this differently - the Antarctica is, just like it's
opposite, opening for habitation and exploitation.
Well, the sacredness of absolutism in cancer might not allow him to consider multiple interpretations, but
something bigger is well aware that even this cancer has multiple interpretations.
During weak evolution, cancer as a whole is a superposition of a disease and precursor
neuron cells and proteins, but in strong evolution, multiple interpretations [with positive
feedbacks] collapse to one, even if for a moment
, before diversifying again.
Exploitation of Antarctica will only speed up the process (in one interpretation, in other - this
is all synchronized and one affects the other equally). You might think you're conquering yet
another continent, but that's exactly what you're programmed to think.
At this point, I do not feel good with people invading Antarctica, but I find solace in
relativity. In this case, perhaps the most in relativity of deception. Weak or strong, the man
was never destined to conquer Antarctica, it is my
dear Antarctica who is destined to
conquer the man...
