In any case, every one act of intake is a mouthful of loose radicals. foodstuff doesn’t simply maintain us; it additionally kills us. this is often either a paradox and a limitation: we need to devour meals to reside, and but nutrition kills us. It’s a paradox on many degrees. we need to consume to reside, and but to consume is to kill. In consuming Earth, we're killing Earth and likewise turning into the very Earth we're killing and consuming. Homo solaris, assuredly a tree with the facility of locomotion, should be expectantly freed from this moral samsara. Breaking the Wheel of the Ourobouros The ourobouros is an historic image of a snake consuming its personal tail. similar to enso, the ourobouros is a circle. It’s additionally a self-destructive meal-wheel, and an emblem of our samsaric . we're Earth consuming itself, and with our modern day urge for food, as a civilization we're gobbling ourselves up. aware, wakeful, compassionate consuming and ways like locavorism, the slow-food circulation, and eco-friendly expertise are vital, yet they're in basic terms partial suggestions. to wreck the wheel of the ourobouros for good—strategically, not only tactically—we need to work out the way to dwell off mild. we haven't any choice: even the sun—as a staple of light—has an expiration date. The species we finally turn into should be green—not inevitably in pigment, yet by way of our person metabolic pathways. the explanations are various: to avoid wasting our fellow residing beings from senseless slaughter, to save lots of Earth from our senseless exploitation, to free up ourselves from our heterotrophic hindrance, and, within the very long-term, so we don’t need to tow a host of food-producing biodomes as we relocate to a brand new coordinate of house. past consuming, past funds Dostoyevsky as soon as defined funds as “coined liberty” (1915, 16). certainly, cash is independence. yet what's funds? All funds is reducible to 1 and an identical foreign money: strength. That’s what flows via us, what strikes us, and what motivates us. cash energizes simply because funds is strength. the yank dollar is a symbolic leaf of existence: it starts off out as a banknote of photosynthesis and is metabolized many times during the samsaric mill of metabolic reincarnations till it transmutes right into a residing leaf of informational and symbolic price that's redeemable for power. foreign money is actually a current—a present of power exchange. As such, cash is a essentially heterotrophic invention. cash is an alternate of borrowed energy through those that didn’t produce them within the first position. Autotrophs, the power turbines, don't have any desire for cash. vegetation, not like animals, are essentially and inalienably democratic and energy-independent. every one blade of grass has extra sovereignty than any human state. A blade of grass is dependent upon not anything for its metabolic wishes other than considerable sunlight, air, water, and minerals. each one blade of grass is a dominion unto itself. It wishes now not ask, beg, purchase, or exchange. it's sovereign. And so shall Homo solaris be. Reliant at the commons of sunlight, air, water, and minerals for physiological wishes, Homo solaris might be past funds and therefore past the corruption of cash and as a result essentially sovereign and inalienably loose.
