Our ancient ancestors saw the Earth as a living, conscious organism filled with spirits that sometimes worked together and at other times battled for primacy. But then humanity domesticated the spirits and the planet became a dead carcass where we could extract whatever we chose. But all this did was separate us from each other and from the Web of Life. If we are to find our way out of no-way, we must reunite with the Infinite Spirit of Life that never went away. We must awaken to a planetary consciousness where connection and awe meet the logic and creativity of the modern world; to a greater understanding of how our collective fates are tied together.
