Given the amount of \"harmony\" and \"balance\" the ecogoly books will fantasise about, perhaps it might also be worth reading The Origin of Species. Many claim to understand the theory of natural selection that governs all life on Earth for example, but few are prepared to accept that the \"harmony\" and \"balance\" currently peddled by some utopians is actually based on a fierce and frequently fatal struggle for life: We behold the face of nature bright with gladness, we often see superabundance of food; we do not see or we forget, that the birds which are idly singing round us mostly live on insects or seeds, and are thus constantly destroying life; or we forget how largely these songsters, or their eggs, or their nestlings, are destroyed by birds and beasts of prey; we do not always bear in mind, that, though food may be now superabundant, it is not so at all seasons of each recurring year. Charles DarwinIf you want to understand ecogoly, you need to understand how important death is. In fact, populations generally appear sustainable because of death, and what applies to the rest of nature must surely applies to us. I realise that most of those telling us to get back to nature have absolutely no idea what nature actually involves, but that doesn\'t change what it involves: Nothing is easier than to admit in words the truth of the universal struggle for life, or more difficult at least I have found it so than constantly to bear this conclusion in mind. Yet unless it be thoroughly engrained in the mind, the whole economy of nature, with every fact on distribution, rarity, abundance, extinction, and variation, will be dimly seen or quite misunderstood. Charles DarwinOur behaviour thus far has been a predictable consequence of natural selection and so will be the results.Kind regards,Matthew http://jyusmarblw.com [url=http://khyglqdbfe.com]khyglqdbfe[/url] [link=http://xsmozdjiere.com]xsmozdjiere[/link]
My partner is an avid rdaeer of your blog, I an occasional one but only for the reason that I get full chapter and verse anyway every Thursday morning UK time (this is even before he has his shower!). It was my partner who alerted me to the fact that you have just gone and pinched an idea I had just over 2.5 years ago now!In the context of a discussion about the Transition Towns movement (I think the movement has a place but I have a few reservations about it, reservations which I have seen voiced elsewhere) I aired the idea of Green Wizards or rather my idea involved two levels: Green Warriors and Green Wizards. Warriors and Wizards may not be the best of tags, can wizard be applied to those of us who are female for instance, but they were the best tags I could come up with at the time.I will not elaborate too much as to what I had in mind as I am very interested to see how you develop the idea. But Green Warriors I saw as being people who were sufficiently clear headed enough to grasp what is coming down the pike that is if anybody can get a real handle on that and who were willing to take real responsibility in their own lives to tackle the associated issues. Green Wizards I saw as being the next stage on, somewhat akin to wise advisors, people who had been through their own long initiation process and who were now willing to share their knowledge and experience with a wider audience. Green Wizards I also saw as being the people concerned with moving our society towards a real and deep understanding and respect for the earth and its ecosystems.As a biologist and ecologist Odum\'s book has been a cherished possession and his systems view is critical to understanding the interconnections in nature. But ultimately, I think we need to move beyond even that to a deeper more reflective relationship with nature. However, that is probably a discussion for another day.Curiously, some 5 to 6 or more years ago we were on a book shopping venture to Hay on Wye, the second hand bookshop capital of the world, or so it is claimed. Such ventures are always very painful for our wallets but in one bookshop we spied a large box full of copies of Organic Gardening and Farming dating from 1959 onwards. Practically, every copy had drawings or instructions on how to construct items ranging from greenhouses to potting tables and more. I grabbed the whole box, commenting at the time to my partner you know, we will be glad one day that we bought these Which leads on to appropriate technology on which I have a few thoughts, but this comment is overlong by now.Ellen ConneelyWales, UK http://xhgovxb.com [url=http://qqihiec.com]qqihiec[/url] [link=http://fqrdutdmwt.com]fqrdutdmwt[/link]
Leider sehr minderwertige Lieferqualität. Alle Blätter haben schwarze Stellen und Löcher. Ziemlich enttäuschend.
