"So why do you think they're aliens?" @Quisp 73
Quisp and I spent another afternoon at the rose garden on lower campus at the place where Eli and Becca disappeared. It was a little warmer than last week, and Quisp was wearing a better coat so I didn't need to warm things up.
"Well that's what Eli and Becca said. Aliens. And, I mean, it kind of makes sense at least in terms of technology and stuff. Like, if the aliens are smart enough to know how to visit other planets, then maybe they'd know advanced stuff like 'fixing broken ecosystems' too?"
"Hmmmm. I guess," said Quisp. "But it's not like us earthlings don't know 'how' to do it, it's just a lot of hard work. So instead of doing it we sit around hoping somebody will show us a short cut?"
"Yeah, I don't know. Really I'm more interested in 'where did Eli and Becca disappear to' than solving global climate change."
"Well it's certainly easier. I mean, just sitting around here in the gardens, instead of, I dunno, recycling, or giving up meat, or planting trees, or unplugging ourselves from the global fossil-fuel powered supply chain, or protesting, or writing elected representatives, or--"
"Ok, I get it." Jeesh, Quisp can be kind of annoying sometimes.
So we waited awhile longer in silence in the rose garden. Then we left.
Oh yeah, for sure @Luna Menahi
, the power to stop global climate change is totally real. It's something everyone could have, except that it's being siphoned out of our minds by the global post-capitalist psychic supply chain... or DE-supply chain. It's part of the S.S.S. -- Systemic Soul Suck -- that Eli and Becca discovered.
How exactly is this power leeched off of us? A combination of chemicals in our food, air, and water, and malicious behavior memes transmitted through the world electro-magnetic grid.
How then do we resist? Well, for starters, have you ever noticed how there's no power or phone lines that go over campus?
uhh hello? I need some serious help...
im lost. how do I find my way out of this hallway?
