Cum Dederit

Dederit
From Latin ‘ dô, as, are, dedî, datum: “give “. (verb). Perfect [3rd person Singular Future perfect Active Indicative , 3rd person Singular Past perfect Subjunctive Active]. VARIOUS SOURCES

The mystical powers of Priapus, God of fertility in ancient Greece, have been overwhelmed. As an ancient ceremony, the fertility that emanates from his entrails elevated the level of world population to an extreme not yet seen until this moment.

The exponential growth of the human population can only be understood thanks to the intensive farming that has been developing since the last century. But with more than 7,000 million inhabitants, our planet seems to suffer the effects of uncontrolled plague.

Dederit
Del latín ‘dô,as,are,dedî,datum’ : “dar”. (verbo). Perfecto [3ª persona Singular Futuro perfecto Indicativo Activa , 3ª persona Singular Pretérito perfecto Subjuntivo Activa].  VARIAS FUENTES

Los poderes místicos de Príapo, dios menor de la fertilidad en la antigua Grecia, se han visto desbordados. Como una ceremonia ancestral, la fertilidad que emana de sus entrañas ha elevado el nivel de población mundial hasta unas cotas nunca vistas hasta ahora.

El crecimiento exponencial de la población humana sólo puede entenderse gracias a la agricultura intensiva, que viene desarrollándose desde el último siglo. Pero con más de 7.000 millones de habitantes nuestro planeta parece estar sufriendo los efectos de una plaga incontrolada.
