Earth Emotions and Ecology

"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 Earth Emotions and Ecology

The sumbios … Continue reading Androgynous Symbiotic Intelligence in The Symbiocene
