Terraphthora and Terranascia


Snake Woman Arnhem Land June 2007 288


Terraphthora (earth destroyer)  (tera for ra)

(Terra, from the Latin “earth”, the Greek φθορά (phthorá) or “destruction”).

Terranascia  (earth creator) (tera nas cia)

(Terra, from the Latin “earth” and the Latin nātūra, “to be born”).

The conflict between terraphthora and terranascia is now global. Terraphthorans are now destroying the earth within the Anthropocene. Terranascient humans will live symbiotically with the rest of life in the Symbiocene.
