The Everglades Whale is a New Species

A new species. And already endangered.

The whale that was discovered dead on the beach (from chocking from plastic) in 2019 turned out to be an entirely new species. And there’s apparently less than 100 of them. So yay, another species humanity will probably kill. Sorry everyone. It’s just the idea that something so majestic was killed by plastic that was underwater.

The study on this poor creature is here :

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/mms.12776

The statement from NOAA is here :

https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/feature-story/new-species-baleen-whale-gulf-mexico

It’s called the Rice’s Whale. Let’s all do our part to ensure that this whale species survives.

Random Links of the Day : Nature Addition

In the Last Random Links of the Day, I made it all about the Creepy and Strange. This time I wanted to balance it with something nice. So on this Random Links of the day, I wanted to show you all the slow return of nature (no matter how brief) to power. And the spirituality that many people take for granted. In this case, the Feng Shui of the House.

So I hope all of you will enjoy this edition of the Random Links of the Day.

So, I realize that Ghost Month ended Sunday the 9th. And I haven’t been active in writing about the changes in energy. Or that this Saturday will be the autumn equinox/Mabon/Alban Elfed/ Descent of Persephone etc.. plus Venus is in Retrograde (Another fucking retrograde? Come on! Even I’m overwhelmed). But that’s because I’m focused on the incredibly life changing event happening right now. A strange Disk Shaped UFO with smaller UFO’s are near the Sun right now.

The FBI has shut down a bunch of solar observatories. And to top it off, so have a few other countries.

Even the International Space station was put on lockdown. On the first observatory shut down :

And of course, this bullshit

Confusion

So a lot of people seem to be confused. I made a science post the other day and that seems to have thrown everyone off. So I figured I would take the time to talk about this. I make posts about a variety of subjects. This includes and is not limited to : folklore, paranormal phenomenon, archeology, sociology, philosophy, history, and science.

I make the occasional tv show and movie posts as well. I often rage like a nerd about Star Wars. A few days ago on twitter, my feed blew up because my tweets on the scientific discovery of the Whale Dolphin hybrids were featured. My tweets were number three and four on Twitter Moments. I also got harrassed by Christians and Atheists who went ape shit because I said “Mother Nature”.

Just to be clear, I was not referring to a deity. While in my beliefs I do believe that Gaia is the Mother Earth and creator of the Universe that’s not what I meant. When I said mother nature here I was referring to the Gaia Hypothesis. This is a hypothesis that posits that our planet is actually alive. That it is at least a semi sentient being.

Think of the movie “Avatar”. The planet Pandora was actually alive and interacted with nature. That’s what at least some scientists believe about our world. You can read about this here :

http://www.gaiatheory.org/overview/

https://t.co/XWg4JyZl3g?amp=1

Harvard Study (PDF) on the Gaia Hypothesis

Click to access Gaia-hypothesis-wikipedia.pdf

So basically, I was speaking of the planet and it’s eco system in conjunction with Evolution. As a Pagan this study actually supports my own beliefs in animism. There are even some branches of Christianity who agree. The Episcopalian/Anglican Church states that animals have a common soul. And that they can tap into it.

That when they die they go back to their own source animus. It’s similar to Star Wars with “the force”. Pagans can also believe in science. We aren’t threatened by it. You’d be amazed by how many of us started out as Astrophysicists or med students.

And still study these fields. Some of us stay up to date with stuff like this all of the time. For instance, the Socialist native government in Bolivia under Evo Morales has even acknowledged the Earth as a living entity. They passed a law over there where they gave Earth protected rights. You can read about this here :

http://www.worldfuturefund.org/Projects/Indicators/motherearthbolivia.html

Even if none of this supported my personal beliefs, I would still share it. I would still write about it. This is how I write. I don’t think that anyone should ever be limited to a category or categories. So don’t be surprised when I randomly post things that don’t fit the blog description. This is my personal space.

And you’re all welcome here. I hope that explains everything. Enjoy,

– M
