ecological consciousness 


More and more people are by far most familiar with the logic of the built environment, which is everything designed and made, including systems of all sorts (not just stuff).  The biosphere contains the built environment and goes on nurturing us in spite of it.

The logic of the biosphere is...

Unlike the built environment, the biosphere is comprehensive and a given that requires neither capital investment, fossil fuels nor marketing/advertising, except perhaps for accelerated restoration.  Note that the biosphere is distinct from the lithosphere (the mineral material from the planetary core to the various interfaces with the biosphere and built environment).

Consciousness of the logic of the biosphere - or ecological consciousness - means...

"Anything we can destroy but are unable to make is, in a sense, sacred."

E. F. Schumacher
