Civilization = Cultivation

Cultivation clears forests to grow grains.

Grains explode populations.

Exploded populations necessitate further clearing of forests.

[Clearing of forests, feeding exploded populations of humans exclusively, effectively means, clearing up of all forms of life except human plus a handful of their (animal and plant) slaves.]

Further clearing of forests further explodes populations.

Further explosions of populations necessitate faster clearings of forests and clearing up of all other forms of life except the above mentioned.

Faster clearings and clearing ups necessitate the birth of machines.

Machines speed up everything.

[Everything means everything: The pace of the conversion of planet life into a cultivated human mass as well as the pace of the life of cultivated humans. Both the paces mutually accelerate each other.]

Speeding up needs speedier computation.

Speedier computation necessitates the birth of computers.

Computers further speed up everything.

[Everything means everything: Ditto]

Further speeding up everything further speeds up everything.

Soil life depends on a synergy of diverse forms of life, micro and macro, small and big (not just life of the above mentioned). Planet life depends on a synergy of diverse forms of life, micro and macro, small and big (ditto).

Cultivation erodes and exterminates soil and soil life. Civilization erodes and exterminates every other form of life except the above mentioned.

Soil cannot be saved outside of a natural forest. Civilization cannot be saved inside of a natural forest.

Soil is the basis of all life. Civilization is not the basis of all life.

Soil is the basis of human life. Civilization is the basis of cultivated human life.

What chance do we really stand?
