Why We Must Confront Our Unconscious Biases: Evolution through Symbiosis or Red in Tooth and Claw? Series, Part 2

Before I jump into implicit (unconscious) bias, paying attention to at least the most detrimental of our implicit biases (so that we can actively change our behavior to reduce or eliminate their negative impacts), I want to start here by stating that collectively as a society in the U.S. we have deep soul wounds. Soul […]

Dismantling Hidden Biases in Science that Continue to Legitimize White Supremacy, Toxic Masculinity, Hyper-Individualism, and the Subjugation of Nature: Evolution through Symbiosis or Red in Tooth and Claw? Series, Part 1

The popular paradigm of “survival of the fittest”, and Nature herself as utterly ‘red in tooth and claw’ in an entirely machine-like cosmos where spirit is outside the physical realm is so consumed, digested, and assimilated into our culture that it is now a set of beliefs unconsciously breathed in and out daily by each citizen in Western civilization. Left intact without the breadth of the full scientific context of evolution, such a bias will continue to help support the lungs of oppression and inequity, and ultimate destructive greed of selfish-gene-winner-takes-all policies.

“Fixing” The World Standing in the Tragic Gap

I’ve been grieving about the state of my country, and the state of my fellow Americans with some level of ongoing heartbreak. I’ve had a low level of chronic grief the past four years for the state of the country and my fellow citizens who support and continue to spread fear, hate, and lies. I’ve […]

Election Day Prayer for Healing the Heart of Democracy

On this election day, those who study such things tell us that we as a nation are more divided than at any time in our history since the U.S. Civil War that was fought during 1861-1865. In many ways that war did not settle certain viewpoints of what kind of country America is or could […]

Eco-literacy Part 5: We Measure What We Treasure

Several months ago, U.S. President Donald Trump sent out a tweet misspelling “emergency” as “emergy”. Almost no one recognizes emergy as a real word, and so Trump was derided for his lack of attention to spelling.   Although the current president isn’t likely aware of the meaning of the word emergy (often spelled with a […]

Eco-literacy Part 4: The Law of Return and Sustainability

A cycle of giving, and exchange, and symbiosis. This is how I’ve largely come to see Nature in her most healthy functioning ways. This isn’t to say that resource scarcity and competition don’t exist – they do – but we’ve placed far too much emphasis on these aspects of understanding nature as applied to human […]

Eco-literacy Part 3: Universal Laws

Ecology is defined as the study of the relationships between organisms and their environments. The word ecology is derived from the Greek oikos, which means “house” and -logia, “study of”. Few people are ever trained in the basic foundations on which the earth, our home, functions, and on which we are wholly dependent.   Based […]
