I think we need a new ‘discipline’. One that takes into account the way the world actually works. I call this new discipline Sumbiology (from the Greek sumbios = living together, ology = a branch of learning and knowledge).

Sumbiology is the study of humans ‘living together’ with the totality of life. Sumbiologists study life-supporting relationships between people, other biota, ecosystems and bio-physical systems at places from the local to global scales.

Sumbiologists also study the dynamics of those relationships within Earth Systems so that decision-making about how a good life (Sumbioethics) and a good politics (Sumbiocracy) on this shared Earth can take place.
