Land: A New Paradigm for a Thriving World

Part II:
‍A New Paradigm for a Thriving World

A new consciousness is developing
which sees the Earth as a single organism
and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed.
We are one planet.
One of the great revelations of the age of space exploration
is the image of the Earth finite and lonely,
somehow vulnerable,
bearing the entire human species
through the oceans of space and time.

—Carl Sagan (1934–1996)
