DaVinci's Gia Principle

So that we might say that the earth has a spirit of growth; that its flesh is the soil, its bones the arrangement and connection of the rocks of which the mountains are composed, its cartilage the tufa, and its blood the springs of water. The pool of blood which lies round the heart is the ocean, and its breathing, and the increase and decrease of the blood in the pulses, is represented in the earth by the flow and ebb of the sea; and the heat of the spirit of the world is the fire which pervades the earth, and the seat of the vegetative soul is in the fires, which in many parts of the earth find vent in baths and mines of sulphur, and in volcanoes, as at Mount Aetna in Sicily, and in many other places.

The earth is just bidding it's time till the next ice age when it can heal. It makes me wonder? how those who profit from war and destruction excel and how 5% of the population holds 95% of the wealth almost like the earth is defending itself by helping the greedy and instructive to kill us off.
