The undiscerning mind is like the roots of a tree, it absorbs everything, even the poison that would kill it.
'We need to do something about these oxygen levels,” Said the Pine to the Oak. “How about getting Apple & Pear to feed those monkeys, they'll make a fine mess of things if they think they're in charge, & we'll get to breathe easier without the huge fires every 20 odd years.” And so it came to pass.
In time, empires rose & fell on the the strength of their forests, yet the trees began to worry whether they had made a huge error. As the woodcutter went with his axe, they’d whisper to each other “The handle is one of us.”
For millennia they fell. Eventually the monkeys greed & ingenuity brought forth the ancestors of the forests from coal mines & oil wells, yet still they hacked & cut on every continent. As they were designed to, by the Mahogany & ebony, Redwood & Sycamore.
It seemed that all was lost. The monkeys were fucking idiots
The Oak, wisest of all the trees, then called out to his cousin, who grew vigorously in all corners of the world, and gave no fucks with regard to air or water quality. Not only was he a veritable Spartan of the plant world, he could provide all the products the trees could, and unfuck the monkeys worldview in just a few weeks. (As long as he had help from the tea plant)
And so, the Oak said; “Hemp, thou hast to realign the monkeys with our goals, for they art dicks, and we can’t carry on like this.”
Then Hemp replied; “Ye man. Ask me tomorrow tho, for there is a Clint Eastwood marathon on Channel 5 tonight.”
And so it went on.
And righteously, the Hebrew monkeys were blamed for everything as usual.
