The old roads, the old signs, the signs of decay have heart, change happens, but is happening faster and faster.

Elisabet Sahtouris believes our current predicament of unrelenting growth and trashing nature is due to unsustainable ideas generated by the scientific mechanistic worldview of rational transcendentalists like Plato, Aristotle, and Pythagoras. Heraclitus and Anaximander had a more organic view and saw the earth as being alive (Gaia). [i]
