  • Before you are revolted and think me totally cracked instead of partially let me explain.
    I found this picture in my in-box and I thought right away, now this is a picture of an advanced culture,an advanced civilization who has it all right.We see pictures everyday of inter-species nursing and go soft over them but this kind of inter-species nursing usually brings revulsion.This is nature at its finest,we don't see it because our western upbringing looks upon it as disgusting when in fact it is the way of the real world as it once was.
    Pagans understood this,the real religion before it was destroyed by "the other big religion". They knew inherently they /we were animals as all other animals and they protected all forms of nature. Their religion was honoring nature in all its finery.I don't know how we arrived so far from our roots but it is a great disaster. I think the decline of civilization began when The "other religion" outlawed Paganism,real Paganism,the honoring of all nature.
    I feel privileged to have been able to look at this picture and see the beauty and rightness in the intimacy of her act. She is nurturing the survival of another of her species higher or lower depends on perspective.
    I ask you to take a moment and instead of being revolted by the picture and my words think: Which is a more advanced culture/civilization ,this Brazilian Tribal Woman or the civilization that allows a soldier to hold an automatic weapon at a human,a civilization that uses drones,that destroys buildings full of people,over fishes,over mines and pollutes all we need to survive and kills animals just to satisfy it odd need for ivory.
    I sent this picture to my dearest friend in Oz ,because I knew she would agree,she is very civilized too. I didn't quite catch the happiness and even hope this picture instilled in me but although I have the feelins I lack the ability to tell them in words.
