Overall, I felt like there was a basso continuo reminding us of the importance of “original teachings” as put by LaDonna Brave Bull Allard from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. We maybe have come to think that we own nature rather than belonging to it. Blame the positivist paradigm. Maybe. I don’t quite know. Joi Ito also reminded us about the Ise Jingu grand shrine in Japan which is destroyed and rebuilt every twenty years. Before felling any of the trees needed for the new temple, the artisans will, abiding by specific rituals, pay respect to Nature. Pay respect to Mother Nature, never take it for granted. This is exactly what I learned in my childhood. When hiking even today, I still express any random stone my gratitude before sitting on it. Weirdo. At any rate, the tenor of the event resonates so much with the view of the world I myself was socialized into. But which I learned to despise so well, to look down upon as barbarian, primitive, retrograde, not modern. The magnificence of internalized oppression. I am just slowly recovering. My people are just slowly recovering. Please be patient with us. And also vibe with us for our recovery to be fully effective before the next great relapse. So that we can reach altogether a new era of infinite revival. Grateful I am therefore for the opportunity I had to discuss the issue not only with fellow people struggling with the same pain but also with open-minded folks just being sensitive to injustice.
