Bacteria rule the world, we may not want to admit it, but they can kill us at anytime…and that’s exactly what they did until the advent of antibiotics. They live in us and on us, helping or hurting depending on their nature. They are the very essence of growth and decay, making life flow or abate as time dictates. These tiny creatures dictate life’s rules of engagement, it’s a constant and continuing battle for dominance. They are the only living organism that can break powerful chemical bonds, the bonds that make life possible. The bonds that hold our DNA together, or apart. Modern technology has changed the way people think about our microscopic world. We know it’s there but think we can conquer it, and we have to a certain degree. But are we really doing ourselves any favours? As Global Climate Change begins to shape our world the survival of our race will end up back in the hands of the most uncompromising and unthinking bits of nature. It would be wise to befriend and embrace the power of the microbes now. One of the best ways to understand the microscopic world is to start working with it. The easiest way to do that is to compost. If you haven’t started yet, we’ll help you, if you need support in your efforts we’ll do that too. Human beings need to pick up the pace here and now…. the micro world isn’t waiting, they’ll be here long after we’re gone.
