Conflicting Essays in scholarship which have been the most engaging research job I have ever done. I have also added, over the years, queries about our "dated" geology with their "computerized" confirmations together with climate changes denied since 1963. The Ten-O'clock News have been telling us to change our clocks for DSL and back again BUT no one as noticed it has been changed, more than a few years ago, from March 31 and October 31, to a week or so earlier or even a week or so later.

The Marriage of Nature and Humans

       Have decided one should get a view of what the native populations think about their land, their volcanoes and such, especially those in Mesoamerica.

       The New York Times News Service reporter, commented about the dangers of the volcano, Popocatepetl,  and also poked around talking to ordinary people on the street. He found that even the food vendors had information about the volcano and how they all felt about it.

      "Rosario Jesus, 55, during his stop for tortillas in San Cayetano, was one of many who joked that, Don Goyo, the more familiar name for the volcano,  “is a friend when he’s quiet but not much of a friend when he’s mad.”

        Like many others around here, she noted that 2012 has been a particularly bad year "in the marriage of nature and humankind," noting that strange weather patterns have been occurring all over the world. It seems that maybe we have been too busy looking at the 10 o'clock News and not sensing what Mother Earth has been doing around us.
The "marriage" and "anthromorphic" concepts between the land and the human condition is a fitting comparison.

One that the ancient Maya have been well aware of for many centuries, but  every once in a while a volcano would get angry, or a great storm at sea would reach land.  Or, as in the Popol Vuh a great star in the sky would explode.  The land, the sea, and the sky have not always been in synch. It appears to be even less so now.
