EthnoGenisis: A Biodynamic Revolution

Ethno - people

Genesis - the beginning

"I want to emphasize Ethnogenisis as the beginning of plants and people: Now at this point in history we have essentially maxed out our industrial-military-complex standard-issue credit cards. We have taxed the planet and saturated it with unnatural modifications. We are drastically feeling the effects in the current day and will continue to do so in the coming decades. We have almost removed our ability to produce and find our own food, to the very negative effect of tempering society into one large grey mass of conformity: units per pound, price per unit, packaged foods, shipping exhaust and in the end, low quality food, high prices. The pressure and the stakes are higher than ever now. The hope in grim circumstance? - nature works and yields in infinite abundance. The instant gratification that was provided to us by the scientific method and the industrial revolution has essentially distracted us from understanding our role in the biosphere. Feeding the planet and ourselves is only the first and most essential step in the potentiality of working with natural systems. The only way to go forward and claim our potential on this planet is to work with it." --Jonathan Irion
