“Our view of men being apart from nature, exploiting nature, has got to change, because that is the basis of our environmental crisis.”
Lynn Margulis (1938-2011) liked to start trouble. As a scientist she saw symbiosis and the connectedness of beings as the driving forces of evolution. What would happen if we stopped seeing each other as individuals or competitors, and started seeing each other as allies? What if we functioned as organisms that can only survive when they are in union with each other? What would happen if we saw Gaia, the earth, as one big breathing lung that keeps everything alive? Would the pollution of the earth, the extinction of animal and plant species, and the climate crisis assume the same proportions? Would colonization, the domination of individuals over living organisms—other people, animals, plants— take on such destroying proportions?
