Nature’s most effective protection is the frailty of humanity, its work and its activities. The consequences of its activities must sooner or later bring about its own demise for the greater part of its present endeavours contravenes every principle of Nature. Hence, it is merely a question of the efficacy of humanity’s activities and of the attainment of a particular level of culture which determines when the reaction sets in; when all that has been built up with so much care and sweat must once more collapse upon itself.
Once humanity has reached this point, Nature will rid herself effortlessly of her greatest enemy and with renewed energy will rebuild all that humanity has destroyed. If as a result, more and more people are to be found today who fear this fearful mayhem, they do it less out of a love of Nature than for their own self-preservation, which still remains a natural force in people. There are a few individuals possessed of great foresight, who are still in touch with Nature and are able to perceive the insanity of our work in its true light. Their ceaseless efforts are a solemn, though sadly-unheeded admonition to their contemporaries. The latter are preoccupied with the exigencies of day-to-day existence and incapacitated by over-specialisation. They are no longer able to perceive the minute and fragile processes through which all Life in Nature is organically created and maintained, pulsebeat by pulsebeat. Unfortunately, the warnings to come to our senses are in the end but cries in the wilderness.
