As I’m reading through Deep Green Permaculture’s article on ethics I realize this as I get to the section about care of the earth, while they are talking about everything being interconnected and interdependent systems, earth, microorganisms, trees, animals, clouds, climate - everything.
The universe, the solar systems and so on. Why do we not think about it in the same way? How would having a solar system with several planets with life be like, compared to our solar system or one with no life. And what about other factors? As I check wikipedia for solar system I see I know very little about this, I’m probably using incorrect terminology. But Maybe in that kind of perspective, other things than life and the behaviour of these living entities is more important.
And yes, as I write this I know it is such a cliche.
