Chapter 34 Summary and Analysis

John returned to Ecuador; the country he loved had changed drastically. The poor were even more desperate as a result of EHM work, and to date Ecuador had to give fifty percent of its annual budget to paying off its debts instead of helping its people. John marvels at the beautiful rain forests and dreads thinking about the day that they are will all be gone because of oil drilling. There are hundreds of places that are threatened everyday.

John is reminded of a prophecy called "The Prophecy of the Condor and Eagle," which he applies to the current world situation. It is a story that talks about indigenous thought and technology. It is like balancing yin and yang. It states that people can use these different ways of thinking and use them to spring a higher level of awareness of world issues and be a more "conscious species." John says that people need to wake up, especially those living in the U.S. and stop worrying about things that don't matter. People need to reevaluate who they are and where they want their children to be. The alternative, which would be to ignore the issues, is too high of a price to pay.
