Sustainability, as used frequently in an axiomatic sense, is utterly useless unless tied to duration. All life is a process of consumption and expenditure. Life itself is the appropriation of an excess of these inputs, and death their release. The only reasonable outcome for any organism is self destruction.

Thinking about ecological discourse and the Medea hypothesis. All multicellular life is suicidal.

@ruin not "reasonable", not "suicidal"... it's just how it works, and it's good it works that way.

@ruin “If [they are] dealing only with staying alive, and thinks, ‘if only I have dear life,’ [they don’t] apply [their] full strength to using, i.e., enjoying, life. But how does one use life? By using it up, like the candle, which one uses by burning it. … Enjoyment of life is using life up.” - Max Stirner
