  • Innocent Thoughts

    by Ophir Mottes
    Many words, concepts, and sentences seem obvious to us; it feels like we know what they mean, and we do not really stop to see if we do.

Many times once an accurate definition is sought, the intricacies of concepts reveal themselves. Many times when trying to explain an "understood" sentence, we find out it has some hidden folds, and we may have to define some of its parts better... more

  • Redesigning the Planet: Local Systems: Using Ecological Design to Reshape Civilizations

    by Alan Wittbecker, et al.
    Do we have the scientific, engineering or artistic abilities to redesign the planet? We humans now influence every natural system, taking what we need from some ecosystems, enhancing a few, misusing others, and interfering with the rest. We need global ecological designs to restore the balance between human needs and natural processes. The planet is self-making and self-designing, but our impacts need to be redesigned ecologically in a synthetic way. This book is a start.
