WELCOME TO THE ANTHROPOCENE
YOUR MAJESTIES, Welcome to the Antrophocene, addresses a crisis of conscience and human impotence in erasing the indelible marks of past excesses.
Comes the new era: "Antropecene" marking the evidence of the impact of the global Human activity in terrestrial ecosystems. We are all connected in a network, but intimately disconnected and unhappy.
One Humanity numb once in a smoky sky blue planet.
The teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti's work traverse the same way that pass across time and societies. "A revolution can only occur through self free from any form of authority."In the process of creation of “Your Majesties “ we will take as starting point Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize speech.
“Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses, Distinguished Members of the Norwegian Nobel Committe, Citizens of America and Citizens of the World ....
I receive this honor with deep gratitude and great humility. It is an award that speaks to our highest aspirations - that for all the cruelty and hardship of our world, we are not mere prisoners of fate. Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of justice.”
We conclude that all of us are involved. Each one of us were somewhere around the world.
We must awaken consciences and move our bodies.
