Excerpt from WAAF:
We are all becoming increasingly aware of the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan. Fukushima, 40 years old, is among the largest nuclear facilities in the world. It was designed by General Electric and built by GE and Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) on the Ring of Fire, one of the most seismically violent areas on the planet. In fact, it was built at the site of four notable earthquakes:Related Articles
the 7.2 magnitude Meiji Sanriku earthquake of 1896 which caused a 103-foot tsunami killing 22,000 people; and three magnitude 8.0-plus quakes in the Fukushima area in 1793, 1677 and 1611. On March 11, 2011 Japan suffered a record-breaking 9.0 earthquake off its eastern shore. A 46-foot tsunami easily overcame the 25-foot concrete retaining wall of Fukushima-Daiichi, taking out the power systems, backup diesel generators and pumps at the nuclear facility, all of which are necessary to circulate waters to keep cool the six massive reactors and the seven pools of approximately 600,000 spent nuclear fuel rods.Today I am going to present a series of perspectives on how humanity has arrived at such a disastrous position, why we are all partially responsible (not just the Japanese, or G.E., or industrial contractors, or military personnel, or governments), and what this enormous event means: Fukushima is not just an exterior or physical meltdown event to be contained (entombed), but an interior cultural and personal crisis which provides an opportunity for evolutionary development and healing both individually and globally.
In short, Fukushima is arising as both a disaster area, and potentially as hallowed sacred ground, should we choose to treat it as such.
These evolutionary, transformative Life Practices will be physical, dietary, mental, emotional, spiritual, interpersonal, economic, and ecological, and will contribute to a depth of meaning and human expression worthy of our continued existence and evolution.
