4 minutes of video: metaphor of human metamorphosis: becoming something unimaginably beautiful


Those of us awake can easily, simply, in Emperor’s New Clothes language explain, document, and prove that Earth is dominated by .01% oligarchs who are parasites upon the 99.99%.

Those of us awake require zero belief, only what the Emperor’s New Clothes child asks the community: look for yourselves at naked crimes in literally ~100 areas, and perhaps most obvious in:

These crimes demand arrests, obviously. Costs of these crimes:

The 1-minute video provides a metaphor for the human condition by evolution biologist, Dr. Elisabet Sahtouris: a caterpillar becomes so consumptive that an observer unfamiliar with the species might conclude its behavior is self-destructive. Nearing death, the caterpillar ends-up literally upside-down (as our world appears today). Inside the caterpillar, “imaginal cells” emerge with resonance of a foreign frequency for a new future. These new cells are attacked by the existing immune system. However, the emergence of imaginal cells outpaces the immune system’s capacity, with the evolutionary process supporting the emerging cells and causing old cells to die off.

A caterpillar can eat up to three hundred times its own weight in a day, devastating many plants in the process, continuing to eat until it’s so bloated that it hangs itself up and goes to sleep, its skin hardening into a chrysalis. Then, within the chrysalis, within the body of the dormant caterpillar, a new and very different kind of creature, the butterfly, starts to form. This confused biologists for a long time. How could a different genome plan exist within the caterpillar to form a different creature? They knew that metamorphosis occurs in a number of insect species, but it was not known until quite recently that nature did a lot of mixing and matching of very different genome/protein configurations in early evolutionary times. Cells with the butterfly genome were held as disclike aggregates of stem cells that biologists call ‘imaginal cells’, hidden away inside  the caterpillar’ all its life, remaining undeveloped until the crisis of overeating, fatigue and breakdown allows them to develop, gradually replacing the caterpillar with a butterfly!

Such metamorphosis makes a good metaphor for the great changes globalisation, in the sense of world transformation, is bringing about., as Norie Huddle first used it in her beautiful book Butterfly. Our bloated old system is rapidly becoming defunct while the vision of a new and very different society, long  held by many ‘imaginal cell’  humans who dreamt of a better world, is now  emerging like a butterfly, representing our solutions to the crises of predation, overconsumption and breakdown in a new way of living lightly on Earth, and of seeing  our human society not in the metaphors and models of mechanism as well-oiled social machinery, but in those of evolving, self-organizing and intelligent living organism.

If you want a butterfly world, don’t step on the caterpillar, but join forces with other imaginal cells to build a better future for all! – Dr. Elisabet Sahtouris, evolution biologist

    ya just had to have mandela in there din’ ya?

      With all the facts arguing for the 99.99%’s cooperation, with a million children dying gruesomely painful deaths from preventable poverty every month, with the US leading unlawful Wars of Aggression around the globe while wanting more war on Iran, you, kikz2, want attention on what more important topic instead, bro?

      Think, speak, and take action for what you want most; Life will grant you what you work for.

      • kikz2

        with all what facts, Carl? i see you yammering about facts.. however you’ve not proffered any..no citiations…..bro.

        right.. sorry, i’m not going to be stew-juice for communists or ferals for any big metamorphosis.. i don’t care what color they are.

        i’m evolving quite nicely, i’ll pass, thanks 🙂

        those starving kids.. you can bet most of them aren’t White, Whites don’t breed what they can’t feed. Preventable poverty.. it’s called birth control, if you care about all these starving children, like you say, you’ll help their mothers prevent more from being born to starve. Birth Control, White Invention, highly recommended for prevention of poverty. oh, and by the way, the only 3rd world starving White kids, those in SA, that are being genocided by the ANC, and not allowed to leave, or work.

        I agree we need to stop the wars, we’ve got more important shit to tend…..but the alien foreign nation that has subverted the control points of the US government, and bought Congress, lock/stock/barrel isn’t going to allow that, neither is the MIC, they have too much invested, weapons sales to both sides. Who do you think, is pushing for that war w/Iran? Listened to Israel, or their Jewish constituents on this side of the pond lately? You’ll have to take that one up w/them. …………………………….. do I hear crickets?????
        I’m working for waking people up, Carl, when I hear some utopian drivel, on a place like Washington’s blog, and see the fleeting image of a Boer killing communist, who has helped return SA to a cargo cult, yeah, it pisses me off. it’s quite symptomatic of other crap goin’ on in my country at the moment, thx.

          kikz2: Good luck to you waking people up as you see best.

    Nationalization of marriage? That would be lawlessness and usurpation in America unless you changed the Constitution first. And that did not happen.

    What this article seems to advocate is overthrow, sedition, and lawlessness throughout our civilization.

    And for what? There was always marriage equality in America. And it was true even before the high court’s recent decision. We were all equally free to marry a member of the opposite sex. To deny this is to be delusional.

    What homosexuals want is for us to change the definition and meaning of marriage to mean anything. That will make it mean nothing and that destroys the foundation of civilization: the family. Unwin proves it. Toynbee proves it. Sororkin in proves it. Gibbons proves it.

    The US is indeed the greatest existential threat to world peace. And it is the leftists of both parties who are leading it: McCain, Kerry, Lindsey Graham, Hillary, Christy, Obama, Biden, Bush, Fox News, and CNN. Nearly all of them are seditious Council on Foreign Relations members or closely tied to those who are. Not to neglect the CIA, DIA, DHS, and other outlaw groups and mobsters posing as government.

      Libertybelle: the article states what it advocates, which is lawful arrests for obvious crimes that are the most important to enforce. It advocates for military and law enforcement to do what they’re sworn to do: uphold the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

      How did you miss this? Again from the article:

      These crimes demand arrests, obviously. Costs of these crimes:

      annual war and poverty deaths in the millions, harm to billions, and looting of trillions.

      Literal psychopathic oligarch “leaders” (and here).

      The .01% hoard ~$30 trillion in off-shore tax havens; somewhere between ten and thirty times the amount to end all poverty on Earth forever while decreasing population growth rates.

      These .01% “leaders” keep the 99% ignorant of banking structures that maximize public benefits, debt-free money that ends national debt, return of tens of trillions taken from sheeple for “investments” in CAFRs, and full-employment for infrastructure investment.
