Garden Of Eden

Garden Of Eden

Saya dan istri saya baru saja menamatkan empat film di atas. Selalu ada diskusi yang muncul setelah menonton keempatnya tapi kesimpulannya tidak pernah jauh dari pemikiran  bahwa manusia, hewan, tumbuhan, batu, pasir, komputer dan segala bentuk benda adalah bagian dari semesta alam yang saling terkoneksi. Kita semua adalah satu dalam sistem.

Pelajaran agama di sekolah tidak pernah mendidik kita mencintai alam: pernahkah membuang sampah sembarangan di-dosa-kan oleh Bapak dan Ibu Guru? Pernahkah meludah di-dosa-kan? mengotori kali/sungai? membiarkan koran dan sampah bertebaran setelah ibadah massal? Mana? Dosa hanya berputar di lingkaran miras, selangkangan dan perbedaan keyakinan/agama lain. Animisme, pantheisme dan dinamisme diolok2, dihina, direndahkan!

Pelajaran IPA tidak membuat kita mengetahui alam, kita cuma menghitungnya saja, semua dihitung, yang paling pintar menghitung alam dialah si anak pintar. Pelajaran IPS tidak membuat kita bersosial dengan sesama penghuni semesta, kita anggap batu, air, gunung, sebagai entitas mati.

"I mean, the human race, we are a tribe, let's face it, and let's stop all this religious bullshit. I think everybody, or at least a lot of my friends, are just so exhausted with this whole self-importance of religious people. Just drop it. We're all fucking animals, so let's just make some universal tribal beat. We're pagan. Let's just march" - Björk

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty" - Albert Einstein

"The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth" - Anonym

"Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed" - Mahatma Gandhi

"Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, perhaps it's time we control the population to allow the survival of the environment" - David Attenborough

"I am afraid that as the years go by that I may forget, I may begin to lose my memories of the mountains and the woods and that's what really worries me, that I might lose those memories, and lose that sense of contact with wild nature in general" - Theodore Kaczynski

"The forests and mountains and desert canyons are holier than churches and temples. Let us behave accordingly" - Edward Abbey" - Edward Abbey

"We are the first species to become a geophysical force, altering Earth's climate, a role previously reserved for tectonics, sun flares, and glacial cycles. We are also the greatest destroyer of life since the ten-kilometer-wide meteorite that landed near Yucatan and ended the Age of Reptiles sixty-five million years ago. Through overpopulation we have put ourselves in danger of running out of food and water. So a very Faustian choice is upon us: whether to accept our corrosive and risky behavior as the unavoidable price of population and economic growth, or to take stock of ourselves and search for a new environmental ethic" - Edward Osborne Wilson

"For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere! Yes, even between the land and the ship" - Master Yoda
