Some years ago I spent time with a friend looking at new ideas and products that various geniuses were working on and developing. Our intention was to put the ideas together with financial resources for the betterment of mankind. We travelled to USA and Europe and even Australia and met loads of people doing really amazing things working on the edge of consciousness and science. As we all know this is an exciting time and it was great meeting people applying themselves to finding solutions to today’s environmental challenges.
During this time I was introduced to microorganisms – bugs, bacteria, little things that do mysterious stuff. On reflection I think maybe they introduced themselves to me and so these last few years has been a fascinating journey of discovery. I feel I could study them for the rest of my life and still only scratch the surface. The role of microorganisms in our world has now been realized by governments around the world that are pouring billions into micro biome research.
This is so different from our past attitude towards bugs, which has basically been an all out war against them. Since the introduction of pasteurization we have developed increasingly powerful methods of trying to rid ourselves and our environments of these critters.
However it also seems the more we try and destroy them, they somehow adapt and try and destroy us! Microorganisms are in everything in this planet; they are in every part of our body and without them we would quickly die. Consider that your body has 10 times as many microbes as you have cells and there are at least a 1000 different types of microbes. We live because of microbes and yet we are trying to destroy them. How very human!
What I find fascinating about microbes is that they so obviously have intelligence and they seem to use it well. In their behaviour they are very cooperative, they work easily and in a state of harmony. They find it very easy to change and adapt to what needs to be handled. Research has shown that certain behaviours can be affected by changing the microbial balance within us; in fact, when we feed our animals the microbes we produce they are noticeably calmer. Susie is considering if they are having the same effect on me!
Anyway today would be a good day to start being kind to your microbes and I believe they will start being kind to you.
