The Next Leviathan

A Gardener isn't supposed to complain about rain. Rain is a blessing from the clouds, especially in July when sometimes it doesn't rain until October. Quite why it's been raining for days and days and days, I don't know. There are a few possible culprits. Some more traditional than others. God's all upset because he's misunderstood, There's an anomaly in the middle of the Pacific. When the old farts were young it was always like this, only worse.

One culprit could well be an aspect of our own species which has so irritated the weather, it's decided to change. Tropical Rainforest Summer and Arctic Igloo Winter for us here where I live. One solution is to adapt to the idea of paddy fields, the other is to Stop Shopping. But have to suspect the Invisible Hand is no longer ours to guide and Slime Mold, not the Meek, will inherit the earth. Always have been a big fan of the Slime Mold. A new future for the Earth, untendered by the opposites of science and stock markets. The next Leviathan might even produce a new definition of intelligent life. So it's all very exciting.
