The Lesson of the Lobster: Cycles, Consumption, and Awareness
Introduction: "In the world of cinema, it is often said that any similarity to reality is purely coincidental. Today, we will use the life of the lobster to reflect on our own habits and the impact of our actions on the quality of life."
Pleasure or Necessity: "The lobster, a soft being encased in a rigid shell, teaches us about growth under constraints. Like us, it feels uncomfortable in its limited space, changing its rigid, non-biodegradable shell up to twice a year. This repetitive cycle, though uncomfortable, is essential for its development."
Preferences and Tendencies: "Lobsters, with their simple brain structure, follow basic instincts. Males fight for dominance, while females prefer the strongest. This dynamic leads us to question: are we also trapped in repetitive behavior cycles, guided by basic instincts, without taking advantage of the complexity of our brain?"
Culture of Disaster: "Beneath the rocks, lobsters abandon their shells, creating a landscape of non-biodegradable waste. Similarly, we leave behind a trail of waste. Our obsession with accumulation and status, symbolized in the pursuit of lucrative careers for our children, without realizing that the abundance of money often frequents families like the Swedish Wallenbergs, with their waste management empire, represents the magnitude of the business behind our 'discard culture'."
Conclusion: "It's time to reflect: can we break our repetitive cycles and seek sustainable change in our habitat and quality of life, better than the lobster, and with greater awareness?"
