Death is the great equalizer, and all change is heat death, a.k.a. entropy.
Do trees transmute the dark energy? Ah, generally they do, yes. Most of the time, but let’s start with naturally occurring dark relics, then move to human.
Landmarks are not a human idea. The contour of the land registers on the consciousness of everything that lives there, and there is a bond or possession, in a sense, between the landmarks and their inhabitants. The puma comes to identify a place as her cave, the owl a tree as being his tree. When a tree comes to be possessed in this way, the passing seasons build up a charged soil beneath the tree. So the relic involved is spiritually charged earth.
Now normally we don’t sense much disturbance in the wood, yes? People report feelings of peace and vibrant life more often than not. This is nature’s default pattern, and though temporary dark patches can arise, with forest fires, plagues and other disasters, these tend not to persist for very long. Ever been to a large forest burn?
Oh, yes. I’ve driven through one while it was still burning. Did it make your skin crawl a bit?
It feels like death. Yes. This is the natural behaviour of dark energy. It’s cleansing and doesn’t bind anything for very long, but sometimes this binding does last too long.
The energy is worse when the fire was not naturally occurring. Indeed. The trees know the difference between sun induced fire or lightning strike caused fire, and human abuses.
Nature has never been perfectly smooth and balanced. It’s not really supposed to be. At various places and from time to time there do occur persistent sticky spots, dark locations that the wise advise most people not to frequent. But the wise do go to these places because they serve as the human contribution to mediation, human ambassadors to a spiritual flash point. They come back with taboos, treaties arrived at and intuited by the tribal shaman or whatever title they held.
Well, these dark places in nature are much more common than they once were, and there is very little human presence or mediation. There is the temptation to see humans as betrayers.
Or asleep? Asleep would be the moderate view, and there are those beings who do keep to the moderate view. But for those who don’t, they build up charges in various places, and make the land appear to have a seemingly unnatural tendency to do terrible things.
Pessimists? Pessimists, curmudgeons, cranky old beings who feel humanity has become little more than useless spoiled brats.
The energy has trapped inside the human? It has trapped inside the mountains, the water sheds, places like that.
