Permaculture, the science, understanding & practice of life

Frank had a visio to restart re-writing a (the?) book – “of course a collectively written book”, with the proposed title “Permaculture, the science, understanding, & the practice of life”, dedicated to Gregory Bateson’s ‘Steps to an Ecology of Mind’. So here it is, a freshly build, fancy Wiki to collaborate on doing that task! http://permabook.brozkeff.net : Feel free to register on the wiki so you can then begin to edit some of the proposed (sub)chapters visualized in the following mindmap. Each line of the mindmap is a separate link on the wiki to start an article. The structure is to be considered as alpha version 0.1 work-in-progress, and is far from being logical, systematic, linear, straight-forward, etc. Anyway, the work should engage also the paradoxical way of “reasoning” 🙂

Flower of Life + Universal Mandala

The Flower of Life is the essential symbol of sacred geometry. The Universal Mandala is part of a terma recently discovered by a Tibetan master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. I merged these two symbols, offering the result for the world. Any similarity is purely incidental 😉

The joyful degrowth (La Decrescita Felice)

Last year, a book of Maurizio Pallante (the movement La Decrescita Felice) was translated to French and published by Nature & Progress. Martine Cornil made an radio interview worth listening with the editors of the French edition:

Elias Capriles – Fear, insecurity and suffering

Fear, insecurity, suffering and refuge

1
We are constantly searching for security because we are fearful.
We are fearful because we search for security
instead of giving ourselves up to the insecurity that life is:
if we gave ourselves up to insecurity we would feel secure,
for we would have no fear of insecurity.
Escaping insecurity, instead, implies and begets fear:
the more we escape, the more we affirm that there is something to fear;
the more we affirm there is something to fear, the more we fear.
Thus, we search for security because we fear
and we fear because we search for security.
