Our collective destiny – Desire
On Desire is a conversation about how human needs and wants effect the health of our planet.
The conversation starts with the following propositions; 1) we can no longer afford to randomly spin the control knobs of the global life support system, 2) each of us can understand and get in accord with Earth by minimizing our individual impact – a.k.a. small footprints, and 3) we can eventually realize the ideal of sustainability – perfect integration of our actions with Gaia’s metabolism.
Move a tiny island and call it a boat. Wrap a world with water and call it an island. Sprout a colossal starship from rock and sunshine and call it Earth. Boat as island, island as planet, planet as boat.
The crux of human experience, our collective destiny – desire.
