Hello, I have been browsing this forum a lot, as I was unsatisfied with the content of my last internet community and have been considering creating my own, when I found that this is almost exactly what I would have made.
Well, I took a pretty large dose of a psychedelic substance and hiked off into a fairly untouched expanse of woods, and for the first time I was completely blown away by the way nature operates and our incredible discord of rectilinear living and thinking with nature's nonlinear interactions.
I felt very strongly that the blight of human action on the environment was the paradigm of cartesian and aristotelian thought itself, and the blight on the human spirit was the disconnect from how the natural, or gaian mind works.
I don't think we can live in harmony with the environment with our trend of ever expanding rectangles and boxes in the wiggly world of nature.
I am in the green building business but really I don't see a lot of promise in the current popular designs. The most transformative design in my opinion is the geodesic dome not just for its efficiency but in the mathematics and psychological effect of living in the design.
Anyway I would love to hear how you think we might shape our living areas and communities to bring about a more intuitive understanding of how nature works and how it will render us more in tune with the earth's intelligence. Can anyone suggest reading material on such a subject?
