Philosopher-Gardeners

Philosopher-gardeners, or farmer-poets, are distinguished by their sense of wonder and real feeling for the environment. When religions cease to obliterate trees in order to build temples or human artefacts, and instead generalise love and respect to all living systems as a witness to the potential of creation, they too will join the many of us now deeply appreciating the complexity and self-sustaining properties of natural systems, from whole universes to simple molecules. Gardener, scientist, philosopher, poet and adherent of religions all can conspire in admiration of, and reverence for, this earth. We create our own life conditions, now and for the future. -Bill Mollison, Permaculture A Designers' Manual


If, as physical scientists assure us, we all contain a few molecules of Einstein, and if the atomic particles of our physical body reach to the outermost bounds of the universe, then we are all de facto components of all things. There is nowhere left for us to go if we are already every-where, and this is, in truth, all we will ever have or need. If we love ourselves at all, we should respect all things equally, and not claim any superiority over what are, in effect, our other parts. -Bill Mollison, Permaculture A Designers' Manual


When you turn your back to the moon, it no longer exists. -Robert Lanza, Discover Interview
