Mothers of the world {R}

March 26, 2011

This is a text that I wrote and published already in December. I reworked it and republish it because it perfectly describes and represents my views.



It happens quite often that in the early morning (4 AM to 6 AM) one of the cats is scratching on my bedroom door and wakes me up and after that I lie in my bed in a transitional state halfway between sleep and waking. As I’m lying there, my mind (the “central executive” in the frontal lobe) goes on a journey and constructs stories that are often extensive and very detailed. A psychologist would probably label this as “lucid dreams”. The stories usually vanish from my consciously accessible memory after some hours though they sometimes come up again in situations and at times when I never would expect it.

A few days ago I wrote song lyrics with the title: “Mothers of the World”, and since then my thoughts and dreams are evolving around the idea, that the demise of humans and the catastrophic breakdown of the ecosphere can only be avoided by a concerted effort of all mothers.

Mothers are the most influential and revered persons. The closest relation is the relation between a mother and her child. The deepest love is the love between a mother and her child. We spend the first nine month of our life inside her and many years with her while she cares for us, nurses us, teaches us, advices us. We spend many happy moments sucking her nibbles, resting in her arms and sitting on her lap.

Mothers have influence, and that applies to human mothers as well as to mothers of other species. All my cat friends (except Sumo aka Indi) start kneading and purring when they sit on my lap. It reminds them of their time with the mother cat. Cindy also likes to nibble on the palm of my hand and she does that with great perseverance for many minutes. When she stops, she stands up, stretches herself while looking at me and finally lays down with a big sigh. She always seems to be very happy and content after this exercise.

All our cats are spayed, but Princess Min Ki had kitten when she still lived at the nearby farm. Shortly afterwards she moved to us and when it became clear, that she would stay, we brought her to the vet and she got fixed like our other cats. It seems though, that the experience of being a mother strongly shaped Min Ki’s character and when Cindy and Wendy joined our family as tiny little kitten, she took care of them and taught them the tricks and trades of cat life. That was two years ago. Cindy and Wendy grew up and are beautiful cats now and they both developed very strong and distinct personalities. They are independent, but they still revere and adore their step mother Princess Min Ki.

A mother will try to educate her child in the best possible way, a mother will want to give her child a good start in life. But in a rapidly changing and increasingly complicated world a mother may not have a clear idea, what she has to teach her child in order to enable a happy life, secure the survival of the species, and avoid ecological destruction. And in addition to that uncertainty a mother may be in distress and destitute, and for that reasons not be able to provide the best possible care for her child.

On a side note: Why should a mother not be able to provide good care for her child? The answer: One billion children (every second child on this planet) live in poverty. That seems to be an enormous number and I wonder, if anybody can grasp, what “one billion” really means.

Of course, there are even larger numbers, numbers that exceed our imagination even further. For instance: The worlds total military spending for 2009 was estimated 1530 billion US$.

I cannot address the issues of inequality, exploitation, and military spending right here. These issues are always in my mind and I will come back to them sooner or later. I also cannot take on the issue of overpopulation, because an adequate and thorough discussion of this delicate matter would take me far away from the initial theme. Only the following few points: I support any kind of contraception, I hate the idea of abortion and think, that adoption should be encouraged. I’m against fertility treatments.

6.8 billion people are hard to feed!

Back to my original theme. The following text is a compilation of dreams that I had in the last days. As I will continue dreaming, other texts may follow.

For Melanie

Mothers of the world, teach your children well.
You can save the world, only you can do it.

What will you teach your child?

You will teach your little girl, that she is clever and able to reach any goal and fill every position. That together with her sisters she will break the evil brotherhood of greedy, immoral, ruthless, warmongering men. That she can outwit them and destroy their networks and their systems of repression and exploitation.

You will teach your little girl, that she has to learn skills and get the best education, so that she can start to work in various fields of science or in public services. And that she has to use the acquired knowledge to invent and develop sophisticated tools that make it possible to break the evil brotherhood of men.

You will teach your little girl that she shall focus on this goal and avoid distractions by the deluge of useless and meaningless information. That she has to ignore trends, fashions, not give in to peer pressure, avoid the brainwashing by TV and advertising and consume any kind of media selectively and in moderation.

You will teach your little girl that she doesn’t need fancy gadgets and fashion clothing. That she shall not waste her precious time with superficial men, except when they either accept her leadership or are useful and helpful to advance her cause.

You will teach your daughter to spend her time wisely and never lose focus.

You will not be the only mother who teaches her daughter in this way and there will be many other young girls who will grow up like her. They will be inspired by the same ideals, they will get a solid education, they will start to infiltrate businesses and institutions. They will howl with the wolves and appear to be compliant and complicit and they will nevertheless implant the seeds of change in the minds of their audience and secretly create tools and structures to prepare for the revolutionary change that will destroy the plutocratic system and end the reign of the oligarchs.

And your daughter, who is now a bright and confident young women will become a media expert or a journalist or an artist and she will use her training in psychology and neurology and her artistic talents to produce benign popular entertainment and news reports and artworks with embedded hidden patterns and subliminal messages. The patterns and messages will be based on new findings about linguistics, visual and audial perception, and they will implant themselves in the brains of the viewers and listeners and accumulate there. They will be lingering in the unconsciousness, waiting to be activated with a master password.

Your daughter will work in a pharmaceutical laboratory and will together with her sisters in mind develop new medical drugs that will influence neurotransmitters in more subtle and sophisticated ways than any existing medications. She will work on drugs that can reduce aggressions and increase feelings of empathy and caring. She also will secretly develop drugs that women all over the world can use to sedate their violent husbands and convert them to obedient servants and supporters of their feminist agenda.

Your daughter will work in a biology laboratory and secretly develop bacteria that will infect wales and dolphins and other endangered marine species all over the world. The bacteria will not harm the animals, but it will make their meat unsafe and dangerous for human consumption and the hunting of this animals will stop because nobody will take the risk and eat the meat.

She will develop other infectious agents that will cause epidemics in industrial animal factories, forcing all industrial producers of pork, cattle and poultry out of business and fomenting a change in the daily diet of people around the world as well as a change of agricultural policies. These changes will result in the reassignment of farmland to grow crops for direct human consumption and they will allow sweeping land reform programs and a shift to small scale farming.

She also will develop a fungus that can be easily spread as a powder and that will make ink unreadable and will cause documents to deteriorate and to turn into dust.

Your daughter will work as an engineer and develop sophisticated tools and energy efficient little machines that will allow small farmers to grow their crops with far less effort and to outperform their industrial competitors. And she will develop new types of sailing ships, trains, airships/dirigibles, and other means of transport that will replace cars and trucks.

She will work as a physicist and she will become an expert in quantum mechanics and discover new phenomena that will allow to change the molecular structure of materials with a combination of electromagnetic radiation of various wavelength. Together with her sisters she will invent a device that scans the surrounding area with beams of electromagnetic pulses and is able to detect and neutralize combustable or explosive substances. The device will be called “Explosion Disabler”.

The powerful nations will be terrified by this invention and the governments will try to prevent proliferation even harder than they tried to prevent nuclear proliferation, but the knowledge will be spread by the secret network of sisters and many small nations will start producing Explosion Disablers in big numbers and will distribute them to activists and dissidents all over the world. The soldiers and policemen will pull the triggers and nothing will happen and the gunners will push the buttons in vain and the terrorists will not be able to explode their bombs. The armored carriers and tanks and caterpillar D9 bulldozers will stand still because the combustion engines will stop working when they are scanned by the Explosion Disabler. And the helicopter gunships will fall to the ground and the bombs and grenades and mortars will not explode.

Your daughter will work in computer sciences. She will program computer games, that in nuanced and imperceptible ways will change the attitudes and value systems of the players and in addition to that will infect the brains of the players with secret patterns similar to the ones that are created by her sisters and transported via news broadcasts and entertainment programs and artworks.

Your daughter will go on from there and find out the secret codes and passwords of this interconnected world and she will break all encryptions. And together with her sisters she will write the software, that will infect all the networks of the evil brotherhood of men. She will get access to the most powerful supercomputers either as an operator or an assistant or the spouse of an operator. Together with her sisters she will utilize the supercomputers to develop even more sophisticated and more capable software that can break any firewall and take over any network and completely reorganize the computers of the world. The supercomputers will also develop models and schemes that are able to replace the old systems, installed by the evil brotherhood of men, in just a few hours.

And then, one day the sisters will send out the master password across all channels and they will place it on all websites. The subconscious patterns that have accumulated in most brains will become active and people will suddenly realize that they were indoctrinated and misinformed. They will realize, that they were exploited and misused and that their lifestyle is distressing, unhealthy, unsatisfying, unsustainable, and immoral.

They will drop out of the rat race, they will leave the cities and join rural farm communes and small rural workshops. They will stop consuming and stop buying new gadgets and they will become self sufficient and self reliant. The soldiers and the low ranking members of the security apparatus will lay down their weapons and the assistants and henchmen, the lackeys and minions of the ruling class will declare their guilt, apologize, and join a general campaign of disobedience, leaving their masters alone, helpless and unprotected.

On the same day the sisters will activate their software and networks all over the world will break down or be taken over and the networks will be reorganized according to the schemes that the supercomputers secretly developed. The bankers and traders will stare at empty screens and the shares of the millionaires and billionaires will be gone and the loans will be void and houses will belong to the people who live in them and the factories and shops will belong to the workers.

The bankers and traders and the billionaires and millionaires will run to the shelves and search hastily and frantically for the documents, but when they find them the documents will be unreadable or turn to dust into their hands, because the sisters will have spread the special fungus that destroys paper and ink.

There will be no stock markets and no hedge funds and the commodity markets and central banks will be replaced by new distribution models that the supercomputers developed. The insurances and banks and all multinational corporations will become public services and will be instantly reshaped by the most powerful self adjusting and self organizing software from the supercomputers.

And the drone operators and gunners and the generals in their command centers will see the screens go black and the operators and gunners will fiddle with the controls and the generals will shout commands but it will have no effect at all because they will be disconnected and completely isolated.

And the predator drones and the jet fighters and the laser guided missiles will fall to the ground and never reach their targets.


Mothers of the world

Mothers of the world
It’s written on the tablet
That you will save the planet
Nobody else can do it

Mothers of the world
There’s silence you have heard
There’s darkness you have seen
And flickering lights between

There’s love you have to give
There’s trust you will receive
You teach it and you state your will
“Never wage war and never kill”

Whisper it softly in the ear
You teach your child, you make it clear
That life is precious, and it will
Never wage war and never kill

And if it now is unconcerned
It will remember what it learned
The promise it has to fulfill
To stop all wars and never kill

The slaughter never can be done
If it objects to take a weapon
Make sure, that your child never will
Take part in war or start to kill

If life is hard, it could get worse
And it could become hell on earth
Object, obstruct and call out loud
No nuclear bomb, no mushroom cloud

Avoid the pain, avoid the harm
Don’t fight, just go home and disarm
There is no peace on earth until
Men stop to fight and stop to kill

This is, what you will teach your child
It will remember, that you smiled
And it will know your stated will
That it shall never ever kill
