We’ve always known that the earth is alive. But the idea of it having sentience, or a mind of its own, is a fairly recent idea. Does the earth exhibit the same features as other living, sentient organisms like you and I? 

The earth having comparable features to a human being is novel. It has skin in the form of its outer and inner crust, an internal thermoregulation system, trees to serve as hair and rivers that flow like veins. If we realized that our environment was just as human as we are, would we be better inspired to rise to our role as stewards of the earth?

Join Alexander and Jason as they explore the possibility of the earth being a living, breathing, thinking being.

It’s Time to Do Better

According to scientists, the earth remains an immature technosphere. It has networked communication, transportations, computer systems, technology, and power. However, it is still immature because these technologies are not connected to the earth’s systems. Instead, it takes from the earth to produce these devices. This means that the technosphere is working against our progress.

We need to start supporting and advocating for technologies that protect the earth. For example, lessening our dependence on fossil fuels because they have a negative impact on the seas and atmosphere. Reducing our carbon footprint to improve air quality. Prioritizing the development of technologies that are energy-efficient and eco-friendly.

As long as the technology and energy we use to stay alive are harming the planet, we cannot ensure humanity’s progress.
