"In many respects, especially for Indigenous people, the scientifically derived terms “ecology,” “ecological,” and “ecosystem” also fail to capture the emotional and cultural dimensions of the human relationship to land. They are useful terms in systems science but not so relevant to the expression of human emotions. Ecosystems are abstractions, as it is impossible to … Continue reading Eco- the spray-on solution to almost everything and … nothing.
Sumbiotecture and More
Sumbiotecture To design and build according to Symbiocene principles, sumbiocentric thinking, symbiomimicry and the discipline of sumbiology, (sumbios: living together and techne: to build). The archi in architecture means to rule or to command ... it has to go. Symbioscapes Symbiotically animated landscapes that require sumbiocentric thinking to bring the scape (a stalk) to life., (symbiosis, living … Continue reading Sumbiotecture and More
Sumbiocide is the deliberate killing of symbiotically unified communities of life at all scales. Sumbiocide is inflicted by humans on the living parts of the symbioment (environment). It is a sub-set of ecocide or the deliberate destruction of the living and non-living elements of ecosystems. Sumbiocide is the systematic destruction of the life present in … Continue reading Sumbiocide
The Meaning of Life
The meaning of life comes with an understanding that it is not the isolated property of a single, independent organism, but a shared property, the 'biocomunen' (life sharing), between multiple organisms all coordinating their actions to support each other toward the end of reproduction, staying healthy and remaining alive. In reproduction, the biocomunen continues. Holobionts … Continue reading The Meaning of Life
Biocomunen: The shared property of life within multiple organisms. To hold life in common with other organisms. To be a holobiont. From bios = life and comunen = to have common dealings with. (Middle English, from Old French communer, to make common, share (from commun, common)).
World War Three, Black Swans and Green Muscle.
The origins of the word 'war' have meanings connected to states of confusion and being 'mixed-up'. Many humans are now at war with the environment they inhabit. They are also fighting fellow humans who desire the ongoing conservation of a ‘green’ world. There are now two huge tribes opposing one another in this discombobulated world, … Continue reading World War Three, Black Swans and Green Muscle.
In what I hope will be a relatively short period of time (perhaps decades), there will be a point in human social development where almost every element of human culture, habitat and technology will be seamlessly re-integrated back into life cycles and processes. In order to get to that preferred state of living, I suggest … Continue reading Symbiocene Principles
Communication in the Symbiocene
The many positive attributes of Generation Symbiocene, centred on high levels of education and technological sophistication, enable them to communicate with each and every Symbiocene inspired movement worldwide. Similar communications systems to the ones now being used in Western contexts can also be transferred to developing contexts. This can be done without the need for … Continue reading Communication in the Symbiocene
Androgynous Symbiotic Intelligence in The Symbiocene
It will not be easy to exit our current era, the Anthropocene, and enter the next era, the Symbiocene. The stakes are so high that to actively engage in symbiotic and peaceful co-existence with other humans and non-human beings has become a major challenge to alpha male, misogynist, violent and aggressive entrenched interests. The sumbios … Continue reading Androgynous Symbiotic Intelligence in The Symbiocene
Sumbioism, Sumbioist and Sumbiosophy
The political and policy realms will also have to be revolutionised by sumbiocentric thinking. The model for social and political systems is not Nature in general, it is life and how life is possible (and desirable) within the matrix of an ethically indifferent Nature. From this point onwards, there is nothing to stop this new … Continue reading Sumbioism, Sumbioist and Sumbiosophy
