compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
In the context of all the great minds that have influenced contemporary thought, Socrates, Buddha, Confucius, and
Jesus have had the most profound and lasting impact, but
as Rachel Carson has more recently pronounced, let's try
to look at the natural world that we inhabit, as if we were
indisputably a different way to understand things than
anyone had proposed before. ME•WE are NOT SEPARATE.
ME•WE are HUMAN but ME•WE are NOT SEPARATE from
THIS LIVING WORLD.
There's a before Rachel Carson and an after Rachel Carson
in terms of the ways of protecting the environment. There
are not many people whom you can say they drove a
paradigm shift but she did. SILENT SPRING taught us that
science was not a mission, her message was that there IS
an ON-going STORY, [IT] just doesn't stop with the removal
Rachel Carson began a conversation that we needed to
have and we weren't having in 1963 and that ME•WE still
haven't figured out how to have in an appropriate way
even today. [IT]'s a conversation about THE ROLE of NATURE
in our lives and whether or not ME•WE make our lives better
with technical innovations or whether ME•WE do damage
that outweighs the benefits.
[IT] IS therefore in[DEED] TIME to consider the
desperate need for A JOURNEY of TRANSITION.
