Scientific Evidence for Greenygrey Creation Myth?

Hi, it’s Tony Loboinson, history expert at the Greenygrey when I’m not being Baldrick. Reading yesterday’s blog about how greenygrey rainforests are good for life reminded me of the Greenygrey creation myth.

How Green and Grey Help Natural Life

First of all I looked up how the green and grey works together, and found this clear and concise explanation on the Amazon Center website:

‘The movement of minerals in this nutrient recycling from living to non-living, and back to living systems is strongly influenced by temperature and rainfall patterns. Water is essential for the uptake of minerals through the roots of plants, so rainfall is an essential part of the cycle.’

There is a fine balance in nature though, as in the Greenygrey and Folding Mirror poetry; and as we’ve been seeing in the UK this summer, you can have too much of a Greenygrey good thing:

‘However, too much rain can cause leaching of essential minerals from the leaves.’

PARA STATE, BRAZIL - JUNE 11: A lone remaining...
PARA STATE, BRAZIL – JUNE 11: A lone remaining Amazon rainforest tree stands in a deforested section of Amazon rainforest on June 11, 2012 in Para state, Brazil. Although deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon is down 80 percent since 2004, environmentalists fear recent changes to the Forest Code will lead to further destruction. Around 20 percent of the rainforest has already been destroyed. The Brazilian Amazon, home to 60 percent of the world’s largest forest and 20 percent of the Earth’s oxygen, remains threatened by the rapid development of the country. The area is currently populated by over 20 million people and is challenged by deforestation, agriculture, mining, a governmental dam building spree, illegal land speculation including the occupation of forest reserves and indigenous land and other issues. Over 100 heads of state and tens of thousands of participants and protesters will descend on Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, later this month for the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development or ‘Earth Summit’. Host Brazil is caught up in its own dilemma between accelerated growth and environmental preservation. The summit aims to overcome years of deadlock over environmental concerns and marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, which delivered the Climate Convention and a host of other promises. Brazil is now the world’s sixth largest economy and is set to host the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Greenygrey Creation Myth

And after that explanation about how the Greenygrey creates, here’s a Folding Mirror poem about the Greenygrey creation myth from Greenygrey history now sited on the fmpoetry website:

When Earth and Sky are as One

Father Sky
riding high
except times
when its cirrus
fly amongst
mountain forests
and pea soup
joins it to Earth

Tis the time of Greenygrey

Sky is within reach
touch the void
swirling seraphim
seaside fog
rolling in estuary
islands bliss
giving birth
Mother Earth
