Being Sapiens means it is our responsibility to protect the natural world. And the world needs your observation. The world wants you to see a new reality for the planet.

We are symbolic animals. We represent objective reality with intangible symbols that are so powerful that we transform the natural world with them. We imagine, envision, we make, we transform. That’s our superpower. But if we don’t protect the body of the earth, we loose the memory of the world contained in biological information flows.

Because of how we evolved as a species, we have cared more about symbols than objective reality. Throughout History, human belief systems have come and gone, temples appeared and disappeared. We can do without them, but try and do without clean food, water, and air. We can’t survive without them.

We live in the solar system after all. It’s not called the christian system, the muslim system, the judaic system, the capitalist system, or the liberal system, it’s the freaking solar system and the sun is what powers everything that’s going on in the biogeochemical flows that are Life on Earth.

In this episode, I am going to share with you my thoughts on what we can do both individually and as a species in relation to the natural world, to understand why we are where we are, and what actions we must take moving forward. This is our time.
