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

World War Three 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,

Sumbiography (from the Greek, sumbios living together)

I define sumbiography as the sum total of the seminal events and influences on a person’s life that constitute their outlook and values on the importance of life, nature, the environment and life-support systems. A sumbiocentric person is likely to have a sumbiography rich with experiences of  immersion in nature. A strongly anthropocentric person is likely

Symbiocene Principles

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

Generation Symbiocene (Gen S)

The generations produced by the Boomers, and now, their own children (Gens X, Y and Z), are labelled as vague, directionless tribes in the Anthropocene, but now is their time in history to unite and fight for a cause that is without peer … themselves and their own future. In Australia, in late 2018, the

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

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

We must move Inland to Cessnock: Sea Level Rise in Newcastle, NSW, Australia

Climate science has been warning us about chronic, negative environmental changes for decades now. However, the scientists have been wrong on almost every front. Wrong in the sense that every prediction they have made has been shown to be mistaken. Climate reality, as it has unfolded, has been worse than their predictions. The science has

Eutierria

  A positive feeling of oneness with the earth and its life forces where the boundaries between self and the rest of nature are obliterated and a deep sense of peace and connectedness pervades consciousness. (eu =good, tierra = earth, ia = suffix for member of a group of {positive psychoterratic} conditions). [Albrecht 2010] (Pronounced:
