QUICK THOUGHTS: noise and intrusiveness
The noise was thunder, the noise was the cry of the living in their encounter with death, the noise was the sea breaking on the cliff. Then human "growth" intervened. The noise becomes the cannon, the rifle, it becomes the scream of fear, the scream of death, the roar of the mines, of the atomic bombs, of the anti-aircraft, of the decay of the living. In the last 40 years noise has become, for various circumstances, contempt for others. Personally, I consider excessive noise both at home and in the streets to be avoidable and therefore unbearable. If, out of curiosity, you write noise on your URL, you will be able to read the definition given to the word: <<Noise is a disturbing signal with respect to the information transmitted in a system. Like sounds, noise is made up of sound pressure waves. Noise is an oscillatory phenomenon which allows the transmission of energy through a medium>>. Today it is necessary for the institutions to outlaw disturbers, that is, all those who cause not only a disturbance to man, producing useless noise, but to every living person (those who occasionally read know that by living person I mean all beings present on planet earth) . Noise as a crime against the living. The noisy living must be treated as a criminal. But what makes noise and who are the noise offenders? All those who invade our lives with noise or with unnecessary noisy invasions for fun or for “villainy” or something else. Motorcyclists, SUV drivers, 3-engine outboards, powerful jet skis. The drivers of mopeds without mufflers, the cruise ships that plow through the Grand Canal of Venice, enthusiasts of car horns in the streets, the taxi drivers of Florence with electric buzzers, the bicycle bell to make room for pedestrians, the schools of “ off-road” in the mountains in the hills, the nervous motorists, the cosmopolitans who with off-road vehicles hit the dunes in the desert around Dubai or in Oman. They are the ones who from the small port of Salivoli reach the port of Piombino a kilometer away, pushing their deafening 400 horsepower engines to the maximum in order to get noticed by the whole country, those who block up our medieval alleys and our sidewalks with huge cars to satisfy their delusions of grandeur. The worst? Definitely those of lakes and coasts. One example out of thousands, the son of the honorable (not very honorable) Bossi raged with flocks of friends on jet skis in green ties in the precious silence of Lake Como. To be reported immediately? The Aero Club of Como with its "certified school" of hydro-flying which massacres the tranquility of all the inhabitants (men and animals) of the city and the lake. Today we have an urgent need to consider useless noise a crime, I would call it a "disturber's crime", or "harassment of the living". If a giant robot steps on a man, we would hear the same noise as when we step on an ant. The rowdy ones of the dunes and of the waters are men like us, but who have better hidden from themselves the encounter with death and this gives them a sense of power which is the most false of all false things which in various ways they nourish his brief existence. This gives him the idea that he can do anything he wants, harassing other men and crushing animals and plants. Death, as an accidental fact, is only news reporting, a marginal fact that makes us easily forget the systematic killing of animals and beings considered other living beings. It is time that the centrality of earthly life passes from man to the living, that philosophy becomes "ecosophy" and that the crime news brings with it titles such as: <<Arrested for harassing noise>>. <<Arrested for damages from useless invasion>>.
