Gossip produces harms our relationships and pollutes the entire social system. It makes us feel better about ourselves, but it is destructive. Even a negative thought about someone else is very harmful. We do not know how to use the human ego for the better and are therefore like snakes that want to bite. We are evolving toward a dark, evil climax that will help us understand the change that is required if we wish to live in balance, harmony, and completion. We need to correct the ego through mutual human love, care, and connection.
