It's almost Earth Day!
Which makes it a most propitious moment to unveil our Earthbook.
Over the last three months, my colleagues and I have been finalizing the Earthbook edition of the Tractatus Ayyew. The work is now ready—just in time for the big day.
I am excited to share with Earthen.io subscribers first (that's you!) the release of the Tractatus Ayyew Earthbook Edition!
What is an Earthbook?
Banayan and I believe that far more important than the words we write is the way in which we write them. As Marshall McLuhan put it: "the medium is the message."
That said, we've been fully focused on developing an Earthen ethics-resonant means of publishing our theory of Earthen ethics. This has literally meant developing a whole new book format from the ground up. Or rather, from Earth up.
Essentially, an Earthbook is a human- and Earth-friendly format that manifests the principles of Earthen ethics. The format works like a web-based app. Browser-based, it is directly and freely accessible to anyone anywhere with a phone or a computer and an internet connection.
Finally, the book's carbon and biodiversity impact is accounted for and disclosed annually and in real-time (as you will recall, sequestering carbon and supporting biodiversity are two of the fundamental parameters of Earth Ethics).
In this way, I am proud to say that the medium by which we are publishing the Tractatus Ayyew fully embodies the principles of the theory we have laid out.
As Earth Day arrives, I thank you for your patience and your subscription to Earthen.io.
And I invite you to check out our Earthbook and flip through the chapters of the Tractatus Ayyew:
