Science finds Octopuses have Consciousness :-), Scientific American Blog Network

Science finds Octopuses have Consciousness  :-), Scientific American Blog Network | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Elephants cooperate to solve problems. Chimpanzees teach youngsters to make tools. Even octopuses seem to be able to plan. So should we humans really be surprised ......And so, with the new declaration (and with apologies to David Foster Wallace), science has considered the octopus. And found it conscious. …Now we just need to figure out what, exactly, the octopus experience is.

 

 

very interesting to prove consciousness from an upper right scientific perspective rather than from phenomenology. :-)

Knowledge Ecology and Speculation. Update of the ecological thought needed

Knowledge Ecology and Speculation. Update of the ecological thought needed | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

I suggest that the modes of thought we use to think about ecology need to change. We need a notion of ecology that implicates our psychology, technology, and economy without getting lost in the battle between making meaning and revealing meaning. Ecology is about science, yes, but it is also about the truth that ecological knowledge is not sufficient for solving ecological problems.

‘Superorganisations’ – Learning from Nature’s Networks

‘Superorganisations’ – Learning from Nature’s Networks | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Fritjof Capra, in his book ‘The Hidden Connections’ applies aspects of complexity theory, particularly the analysis of networks, to global capitalism and the state of the world; and eloquently argues the case that social systems such as organisations and networks are not just like living systems – they are living systems. The concept and theory of living systems (technically known as autopoiesis) was introduced in 1972 by Chilean biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela.

Turtles Up and Turtles Down - Planet of Cities: Marilyn Hamilton | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

........We start with a “motherboard” for our planet of cities: Mother Earth. Then we add Integral Intelligence to understand the city as the most complex system humans have yet created. Next we explore Logic Processors for learning, informing, connecting feedback looping, navigating and decision making. Finally we add an Evolutionary Power Pak to amplify our energy and spiritual source.More than 50% of the world’s population now lives in cities....

A Morning Prayer And The Call Of The Earth

A Morning Prayer And The Call Of The Earth | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

As Rumi says, "I never knew that God too desires us."

And now the earth is calling. I can sense it in the early morning, in the white flashing of the egret's wings, in the fragrance of the wild roses. The earth needs us to remember its divine nature: it needs our prayers. Something sacred in the world is dying and needs our attention

Transformation requires a re-connection

Transformation requires a re-connection | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

It is becoming more obvious that we need to transform our ways of living and operating. The biggest inhibitor to our transformation is our dis-connection with life/nature. Nature is transformation 

 

Transformation requires a re-connection; a re-connection with our true human nature and nature. It is that simple and yet we often grasp at ‘activity’ before undertaking this re-connection (at ‘doing’ before ‘being’). Perhaps this is because the re-connection flies in the face of what we have been taught, what has become so ingrained in our mental make-up; hence re-connecting challenges our sense of self-importance, our individuality (our ego) which we believe is so important for our ‘success’ in the world.

Thrivability > Sustainability - Thrive Design Studio | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

 

Thrivability is a nascent philosophy which is currently being co-created by a network of social innovators and change agents throughout the world to address the challenges posed above… it is a positive and inclusive vision that is much more aspirational than sustainability. If sustainability is about asking the question ‘how do we fix the mess we’ve made?’, thrivability asks ‘what kind of world do we want to live in?’…

Episode Ten: Dr. Timothy Morton

Episode Ten: Dr. Timothy Morton | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Dr. Timothy Morton will turn your notion of ecological awareness on its head. Discarding all cozy notions of being one with nature, he has coined the term “dark ecology” and advocates for an appreciation of one’s surreal, creepy connection with all other things. He dissolves the concept of nature and sees no clear line between life and non-life.
