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

Sumbiocide

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 and societies. It is a sub-set of ecocide or the deliberate destruction of the living and non-living elements of ecosystems and tierracide, the deliberate destruction of the totality of complex

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,

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

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

Sumbioism and Sumbioist

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

Sumbiopolis

Cities, as they are currently configured, owe their existence on globalized gigantism supported by the carbon intensive global transport of goods by aircraft and shipping. Symbiocene planners agree with Bill Rees in seeing cities as “entropic black holes” (Rees 1997) defying all superficial attempts at pseudo-sustainability with their ‘green walls’. We will need to exit
