The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Climate Race Film
42 Minutes Podcast Episode 341: James Dyke The Race is On
James (with his finger in the) Dyke?-)
I listened to the above podcast yesterday about the future of the world, just after reading the start of Miriam Lancewood's book 'Woman in the Wilderness' where Miriam tells of a conversation between her partner and his brother over the possible future of the planet, just before Miriam and Peter headed into the New Zealand wilderness and why learning survival skills is a good thing.
And this was around about the time of the 2008 financial crash -
""With over population and natural resources being increasingly stripped, the pressure will intensify and it's only a matter of time before some sort of disaster strikes"...
"But How? "I asked
"Genetic-engineering disaster," said Peter."Or a Third World War"
"Climate War. Pandemic," Mark added
Stock-market collapse like in 1929,"Peter shook his head slowly.
"There could be any number of causes.""
""If law and order breakdown," Mark continued, "I know what I'll do." He leaned forward conspiratorially, "I'll blow up the bloody bridges so that no one can get to my property." 
He pointed out of the window and I looked at the endless green hills and patches of forest that belonged to Mark and his family. "With the bridges gone, only people with skills will be allowed on my land."
Skills, I thought. 
"I've got plenty of guns to defend my family with, said Mark"
"Enough for a small army!" Peter laughed"

Those words seemed a bit eerie in hindsight, as I bought Miriam's book before the Christchurch mass shooting, but only read her book after that event.
Ironically, the month I met Miriam, listened to her talk in Byron Bay and bought her book, there was a story in my local Australian newspaper about an army guy who had to be rescued from the New Zealand wilderness that Miriam and Peter had lived in for so long.
I had also watched a film yesterday on Amazon Prime called 'Unity' and that didn't paint a very hopeful picture for the planet, either.
It's hard to see humans not destroying themselves and the planet in the not-too-distant future.
Let's hope we can all learn to get along better and do our bit to pull the planet back into shape, before it is too late.
