On this website you can learn how the real observation of the largest reptile on earth, the Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), reveals basic laws of nature that have never been explained to you in the schools or colleges of civilization. This knowledge is much more important than any mathematics and it can also replace everything that religions or philosophies have ever invented. And if you are interested in topics such as environmental protection, animal welfare or climate change, then you will gain a new basis from which to expand your own arguments very stably.
The photographs shown and the practical observations were taken during a stay of a total of one and a half years with a sea kayak on the deserted northeast coast of Australia north of Cooktown. Therefore the pictures show only free Saltwater Crocodiles directly at the coast. They were neither in captivity nor were they manipulated by feeding. This is of great importance. Because only when the giant reptiles unfold their entire being freely, they reveal their secrets, so to speak. The photos are not high-resolution because I only had room for a small compact camera. But they come from a place where hardly anyone ever goes. (see info here)
What will now be at the core of the matter can be summarised as follows: The Saltwater Crocodiles are the physical strongest and also the most successful predators of their habitat in evolutionary terms. They are by far at the absolute top of the food pyramid and kill other animals in this position for the purpose of obtaining food. At the same time, however, no alternative top of this food pyramid could be found or even conceived, which would disturb the weaker animals of the environment - including the prey - less in their free development or otherwise damage them. The coincidence of these two seemingly contradictory extremes is not due to chance, but to an evolutionary adaptation to the aforementioned laws of nature. And on closer inspection, it becomes apparent that these laws have always ordered all life on planet Earth.
For most people this statement will seem absurd at first. This is not least due to the fact that in their minds an image dominated by the mass media and other secondary sources prevails, in which the crocodile is reduced to its huge mouth with the big teeth, as well as to those - in reality tiny - parts of its existence, in which it is a matter of killing the prey. The everyday real effects of the big reptile on its entire environment, on the other hand, are almost never reflected.
Four concrete Assumptions as a Basis for the Verification of previously undescribed Correlations
In order to build up a realistic picture of the largest reptiles on the planet, I now place four assumptions into the room. You can get detailed information about the respective topics via the recognizable links or directly via the menu above.
It is very important to take an unemotional and quasi mechanical view while reading. The subject is not in the least something spiritual or esoteric, but concretely describable mechanisms of nature, as known from gravitation or electromagnetism. So here follow the four assumptions:
1. The Saltwater Crocodile is the absolute top of the ecological food pyramid in its habitat, the transitional zone between land and water, both in terms of physical strength and the maximum size of potential prey organisms. (s. Apex Predator)
2. In terms of life form, the Saltwater Crocodile and similar relatives have held the position at the absolute top of the food pyramid in the habitat of transition between land and water for longer than any other life form has been able to. (s. Evolution)
3. No animal species, at the top of the food pyramid at the transition of land and water, could be found or conceived to disturb the relatively weaker animals of its habitat less in their free development or otherwise damaging them, than the Saltwater Crocodile. (s. Ecological Harmony)
4. No organism could be found or conceived at the top of the food pyramid at the transition of land and water, which would cause less damage to its potential and actual prey, and restrict their free development less, than the Saltwater Crocodile. (s. Hunting Behaviour)
After Confirmation, a mutualistic Symbiosis is discernible that extends to the entire Ecosystem
The veracity of the four assumptions would mean that the physically strongest and most stable animal species at the absolute top of the food pyramid would disturb or damage the weaker animals in their habitat as little as possible. The evidence will show that this can be traced back to many characteristics of anatomy and behaviour patterns, ones that have evolved through evolutionary processes.
These are extreme adaptations to calmness and inconspicuousness, up to the no-longer increaseable speed of the predation processes, whereby the smallest possible suffering arises with the animals of prey. Finally, the whole phenomenon will prove to be part of a symbiosis between the Saltwater Crocodile and the entire surrounding ecosystem, whose interactions are mutually beneficial.
This will detail a form of mutualism whose framework surpasses anything that has been described so far on this subject in the ecological sciences. Almost all descriptions of mutualistic relationships deal only with specific interactions between two or three species for mutual benefit. In the collective world view of mankind, even supposed certainty is firmly established: nature resembles a chaos in which the most successful organisms assert themselves as "ruthlessly" as possible on both the evolutionary and existing levels. With the proof of the four assumptions, this would be refuted and indeed the opposite would be recognizable. Such a wide-ranging dimension of mutualistic effect could not possibly have arisen by chance.
Rather, evolutionary adaptations to fundamental laws of nature must have taken place, which in turn could be defined. How huge - and admittedly unbelievable at first - the scope of this connection actually is will be shown later, among other things, by the fact that the alleged effects of Saltwater Crocodiles on the life forms that surround them are congruent, in a purely mechanical sense, with those for whose causes concepts such as "consideration" or "respect" have formed in almost all the world’s languages - and which we humans like to call exclusive spiritual products.
The Verification would be diametrically opposed to the common and central Concepts of Religions
The recognition of such a framework of undescribed natural laws would open up a new direction of perspective, which would lead into deep levels of the structure of the world that no space telescope or previous scientific discipline has ever reached. Many of the "ethical" parts of common philosophies or religious and spiritual concepts would also be overtaken in an empirically justifiable way. This would result in a completely new and expandable approach to knowledge that goes far beyond the boundaries of previous natural research, and one that actually touches on the areas that many people have so far probably assigned to the term "god". Please, however, do not misunderstand this last statement.
This documentation deals only with observable and empirically describable relationships based on definable mechanisms, such as those found in gravity . Whether the Saltwater Crocodile could be suitable for something like an empirical "proof of god" would be left to the interpretation of others. It should be noted, however, that the evidence would clearly demonstrate the falseness of such religious concepts in which man ultimately always somehow declares himself the "crowning of creation". It would be diametrically opposed to such inventions as the "command of god to subjugate the earth".
Logical subsequent steps following verification of the observation and reflection of the Saltwater Crocodiles would have to be such as to break down the effects of the previously undescribed laws and correlations of nature over the entire ecosystem. The Saltwater Crocodile can only actually be something like a particularly high-grade aggravation of the correlation, while the effects of the laws become clearly recognizable. In fact, this schema could also be shown quite well with virtually all other top predators - albeit somewhat more elaborately - such as sharks, tigers and eagles. Finally, it can also be found in the analytical view of the details of the entire ecosystem of planet Earth.
The Effects on Life as a whole and the Consequences of Non-detection and Non-observance
If the principles at stake here now order the whole of animate nature, similarly to what gravity does with matter, then there can be nothing more important to civilization than to make up for the apparently missing knowledge as quickly as possible. It could further be concluded that the entire food basis of mankind is based on a concept contrary to these laws of nature.
Already, short reflections on our own effects on the lifelong enslaved "farm animals”, as well as on the natural environment, show again the diametric opposite to the effects of Saltwater Crocodiles on prey and the ecosystem. While the prey of the crocodile enjoys a life in freedom for its entire lifetime until the surprising ending in a matter of seconds, the billions of farm animals of humans spend their entire existence in an artificial hell, usually never see the sun or the moon and are then transported to their chanceless killing.
These facts could again be personally relevant for those who ask themselves questions about god and personal guilt - aspects that won't play a role in this documentation. But because it is impossible to break the laws of nature, we as the whole of civilization would move towards a wall at blazing speed by ignoring them. And the impact would not only smash the system of civilization, but could even destroy all higher life on this planet.
The mechanisms of the representational laws of nature, as well as the psychological backgrounds and physical consequences of their non-recognition in the system of civilization, are dealt with in a theoretical reflection after the last of the four elements. I have presented an even more detailed treatment in the non-fiction book "Die verdrängten Gesetze der belebten Natur" (The Repressed Laws of Animated Nature). Also, my enlightenment novel "Der Goldene Frühling" (The Golden Spring) is aimed at the mediation of the overall context, and is probably even better understood by the layman (currently both books are only available in German language - translations are prepared, volunteer proofreaders are welcome).
The books also reflect on the point of view of free animals in nature, which has always been accompanied by great pleasure and a very broad and intense horizon of experience. In connection with the knowledge of the aforementioned laws of nature, a strongly expanded and extremely positive image of nature and consequently the entire world is emerging.
For now it is recommended, however, to concentrate only on the investigation of the four assumptions and to read the evidence carefully. Those who have become familiar with the Saltwater Crocodile and have recognized the accuracy of the four assumptions will be able to quickly understand the overall context. Here, we will move to the first verification:
1. The Saltwater Crocodile is the absolute top of the ecological food pyramid in its habitat, the transitional zone between land and water, both in terms of physical strength and the maximum size of potential prey organisms.
