Fold - That's the Life Experience (ft. Mike Ruppert) by fold published on 2010/10/26 10:26:55 +0000 OUT NOW on limited edition, blood red 7" vinyl (& digital download). Fronted by vocal excerpts from Mike Ruppert in CoLLapse – a film about Mike's ominous, eerily accurate predictions for our collective future – this track highlights the need for us to change the way we think in order to effect real change in the world. LYRICS All plastic is oil; most paints; all pesticides are made from oil. Everything from toothpaste to toothbrushes is made from oil. There are 7 gallons of oil in every tire. There is nothing anywhere in any combination that will replace the edifice built by fossil fuels… Nothing. I think it’s fairly certain that the mortal blow of human industrialised civilisation will happen when oil prices spike again and nobody can afford to buy that oil – and everything will just shut down. The love of money is the route of all evil and it is the love of money which has the potential to exterminate, to render extinct, the entire human race. You walk toward your fear, you embrace your fear, you don’t try to hedge it. Part of real living as a human being, as a spiritual being, is to embrace and encompass your fear, your love and not run away from anything because that’s the life experience. And its in that richness that I think we find the most beautiful art, the most beautiful music; we find the richness of what the human soul can offer and I see all that richness buried under such bullshit. The only thing in the world that you and I can possibly change – to give ourselves a chance of survival and to give our children a chance at some kind of human civilised life – is our minds. We are all collectively – as a species – responsible for what may be the greatest preventable holocaust in the history of planet earth… our own suicide.
