Farm Theory

February 03, 2012 By: kajay Category: Farm Theory

Behavior can be understood and predicted in direct proportion to the facts available. These facts include–

Mechanics

What do our tormentors look like?

  • How do they feed? Breed? Move? Give birth?
  • What intelligence do they possess? What motivates them?
  • Why are they here? And, finally, “Why me?”

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Every creature is motivated by survival: That means water first, then food, and then sex. From single cell to complex organism, that remains the same. If one of this powerful motivational triad is threatened, we, meaning the gamut just mentioned, will do ANYTHING to make sure we have it. Click here to learn more about this useful tool for understanding what motivates other people–and probably critters too.

Military

Before a population can settle in a new place, they must first choose it where they want to live. Once they choose it, they must take the ground.

Settlers

Once the ground is taken, the new population must settle in and find ways to ensure their ability to survive and THRIVE.

Community

Some organisms are loners, as are humans. Others have learned that it benefits them to work together, in a community or colony. Not all the critters who find us are colony critters, but I think the morg are. I haven’t made all the pieces fit yet, and I’m not trying to force them to, as that would not help me, or anyone else. If anything, I lean toward conservatism when it comes to conclusion jumping. It’s one of few areas in my life where I think inside the box is best, at least until the box has enough data in it to start rummaging through it. That said, I am always trying to figure out (as are you) what is happening to us and why.

Physical Reality/Unreality

Some things that work on a human scale would never work on a microscopic scale, but others, some physical principles, certainly do. However, it is probable that other things that are true on our scale are acted out daily within the morg’s world. I have seen behavior through my microscope that suggests (though I think it does more than that, I will not ask you to agree with me) that the critters care about their young, protect their queen, will fight like demons if threatened, make love in a remarkable way, give birth even more strangely (to me) and have no concept of us at all other than as the providers of their homes. We are the ‘burbs.

Their World

We are their source of everything. Without me, for example, they must find YOU. I do not think this is the first choice of a contented member of a morg population. I believe that they work very hard to “make the ground livable.” If you lived in a bountiful farm land, would you want to leave it to start over elsewhere? I think the answer would only be yes when the present “community” (me) no longer provides what their mature community needs. In other words, when, and this isn’t pretty, they have used us up. Because the morg have not learned how to sustain us as a provider. They are as inefficient with our bodies as we are with the Earth. They consume, and they replace only what they need in the short term. Do they know? I have no idea. But this seems to be how they do business.

Fungal Farm

So how do they turn us into a bountiful farm land? The answer is simple: They plant and cultivate and grow and harvest what they need. When I came to this theory finally it explained so much. It may not be RIGHT, but it would dot some i’s and cross some t’s for me.

Summary

1. The military. Take a beachhead (lesion) and dig in deep. From this point, mount and support future operations. (black speck and globe fiber mites)

2. The settlers – Once the area is secure, build homes (in and under our skin, in our tear ducts, wherever we do not know how to prevent it). (ovoid nasty biters)

3. Clear/cultivate land (that’s us, dears).

4. Plant a crop. And what might that crop include??? The answer is, it will include whatever they can grow on us by varied means, that will in turn feed their GFood parasites, fungal host parasites, and fungi themselves. A farm, my friends.
