What sort of acts and enterprises are in the interest of the Earth? What does it mean to contribute to the ecologies around us? What does green really mean?
Take a deep dive with me into what green really means. Guided by indigenous wisdom, cutting edge science and paradigm shattering philosophy, we'll explore one of the defining issue of our times.
One installment after another, I am laying out a new ecological ethic based on the Earth's example. Post by post, I am laying out what will eventually be a treatise on green of Tractatus Ayyew (A conjunction of Latin and Igorot)– that will be know as Earthen Ethics.
Each installment is a stand alone essay. The essays and reflections you will find here are inspired by my time living amongst indigenous peoples, my last decade working on plastic transition, and my academic background in philosophy. The initial posts here are proposes that the way the Earth has transformed the planet’s surface into livable, green, bio-diverse and conscious biosphere is the definition of greening– of what it means to contribute to the enrichment of the biosphere. And an example is one well worth being followed.
This treatise is for designers, inventors, politicians, activists– anyone keen to be green and a force for regeneration. I believe that the ways of the Earth provide a way to ground our ecological intuitions in both science and indigenous wisdom. With a rock solid foundation, we can then move forward with unprecedented wisdom and humble confidence to manifest the green world for all that we all long to see.
