“These are the beginnings of illuminated manuscripts, biological strategies that carefully attend to the complexity of life. These are human edge species lodged between the end of industrialism/capitalism and the beginning of a regenerative era. These are some of the spores. Culture them well.” –Paul Hawken, author and social entrepreneur
