Basically what this means is that the biomass in area A can grow by depleting the biomass in area B, if there were animals that ate what was in area B, or if we are talking about a biomass that is plant derived, it could be growing regardless of what happens to area B biomass.
This is all very nice, we all know that every area has something to do with other areas in our planetary sytem, and there is no way for area A not to have an effect on area B, C etc.. however the term is very specific and limited, it really only talks about area A regardless of all other areas, and that does help keep things simple, even though it doesn't take everything into account.
What is of interest for me in this whole discussion is to look at our entire planet's biomass. Can it grow? can it wither? and what effect would that have?
We do know it gets complexified over time, which seems to be some sort of a purpose for the life force, and we entertain ourselves that as time passes, the living things are also moving in a direction or higher intelligence, and fine tuning the expression of this life force. It also seems that when we recognize the expression of this life force, we see that it follows a different set of rules than the ones ruling living bodies. These are all interesting topics, but lets get back to the original concept of this blurb.
Can the earth biomass grow or wither? If it grows, where will the extra life come from? Can there be more biomass than there is currently? Is there life anywhere else?
We do know that life can wither on this planet with a little help from our friend, the A bomb. And we don't even need to go this far, we are destroying this planet with chemicals, plastic, chopping forests and etc which makes it easy to see how the planet can support less life than it was likely able to a few hundred years ago, considering the half life time of many of these materials.
Since life force of this planet can wither, I will also assume it could grow, and I will consider it growing as a beneficial thing, even when facing the fact that adding more people hasn't proved to be very helpful in this regard thus far in our history.
Which brings me to the obvious conclusion: if people learn to control their destructive urges, develop a real understanding and appreciation of life, we can bring about a great positive change, and support the development on life in the galactic creation.
This should be regarded as common sense, however it still seems that the majority of people don't think in these terms, don't understand them, and obviously don't act on them, which creates a big problem. We destroy ourselves, we destroy the planet, and we destroy life, not being true to its nature. We need to find who we are, what we are, what's the truth and what's the lie.
We might need to shake and break some fundamental structures in our societies, which some people might not like, and might hurt the deep pockets of others.
Going deeper into the topic I brought up earlier, life force does work under a different set of rules than the ones governing living bodies; one of the ways that demonstrates that is, our spirit recognizes other beings, it loves them, harmonizes with them and appreciates them, while our bodies' livelihood depends on eating/preying on other life forms of one sort or another (you can say that the price for our being here is in flesh and blood, and for that matter, the price of any living thing is the life of other living things, or sun and water, though even plants synthesize organic matter). While this seems to contradict, notice how none of this is harmful to the environment; if anything it supports the balance of the environment in mysterious ways.
Living things are able to fight for their existence and so destroy other living things, but that is never done in a way that can threaten the environment's ability to adapt and develop forward as a result.
So basically as an expression of life, we have brought forth many things that were not available prior, some of which are the ability for commercial destruction of this place. Expressing our destructive part through non organic ways, and taking it out of the balanced place it once had, which all other life forms still posses. These urges then took a life of their own to become compulsive, addictive, they need to be contained and brought back to their original place, under a greater reason.
They say money is the source of all evil, which is one side of the coin... but looking into this side of it, many people do worship money first before life. That is an introduction of a fundamental non organic concept that can't have a life of its own and shouldn't be regarded as if it does. Priorities do need to be installed in their right place.
There are many minute examples of how this concept comes about, not many people are capable of grasping the big picture, but the establishment of the bigger picture will help people walk on the right tracks on a personal level
