      A global program to regenerate soils, ecosystems, forests and revive life in the oceans can reverse a lot of the damage, fast. The biosphere can solve the climate crisis, if we give it a chance. #climatechange #slowwater #amazon #clouds #regeneration

    1. We build regenerative cultures to save ourselves from the insanity of a self-destructive civilization. Therefore, we try to reconnect with ourselves, friends, fellow activists, society, and the natural world. Furthermore, we learn inclusivity, mutuality, empathy, and equality anew. We seek regenerative solutions up against any challenge. Regenerative cultures can be learned on the fly. Regenerative Cultures care for the planet and they care for life, aware that this is the most effective way to create a thriving future for all of humanity.

    1. I propose a six pillar strategy besides the fight against CO2, frontloading climate action based on massive Nature based Solutions (NbS) implemented by everyone, everywhere as fast as possible:

    1. Regenerative Ventures

      Out of the Trimtab Space Camp course with the Buckminster Fuller Institute in which we were exploring world building with Tony Patrick, Langdon Roberts, Jeremy Lubman, Elsie Iwase, and I gathered to think about how we could become involved in regenerative ventures. This was our initiative, in which we met weekly to think about how we manifest who we are as a more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. The thought was that architecture grows out of values, principles, and intention.

    1. Langdon Roberts informed me of the Earth Regenerators group and the Prosocial for Earth Regenerators.

      Earth Regenerators was started by Joe Brewer, whose book "The Design Pathway for Regenerating Earth" is about to be published and can be read here: The Design Pathway :: Chapter 1.

    1. Interdependence and Regeneration2c5c7 A very important feature to be noted from the discussion in this section bears upon the interdependence among the various types of structuring which are involved in the H-LAM/T system, where the capability for doing each type of structuring is dependent upon the capability for doing one or more of the other types of structuring. (Assuming that the physical structuring of the system remains basically unchanged during the system's operation, we exclude its dependence upon other factors in this discussion.) 2c5c7a This interdependence actually has a cyclic, regenerative nature to it which is very significant to us. We have seen how the capability for mental structuring is finally dependent, down the chain, upon the process structuring (human, artifact, composite) that enables symbol-structure manipulation. But it also is evident that the process structuring is dependent not only upon basic human and artifact process capabilities, but upon the ability of the human to learn how to execute processes--and no less important, upon the ability of the human to select, organize, and modify processes from his repertoire to structure a higher-order process that he can execute. Thus, a capability for structuring and executing processes is partially dependent upon the human's mental structuring, which in turn is partially dependent upon his process structuring (through concept and symbol structuring), which is partially dependent upon his mental structuring, etc. 2c5c7b All of this means that a significant improvement in symbol-structure manipulation through better process structuring (initially perhaps through much better artifacts) should enable us to develop improvements in concept and mental-structure manipulations that can in turn enable us to organize and execute symbol-manipulation processes of increased power. To most people who initially consider the possibilities for computer-like devices augmenting the human intellect, it is only the one-pass improvement that comes to mind, which presents a picture that is relatively barren compared to that which emerges when one considers this regenerative interaction. 2c5c7c We can confidently expect the development of much more powerful concepts pertaining to the manner in which symbol structures can be manipulated and portrayed, and correspondingly more complex manipulation processes that in the first pass would have been beyond the human's power to organize and execute without the better symbol, concept, and mental structuring which his augmented system provided him. These new concepts and processes, beyond our present capabilities to use and thus never developed, will provide a tremendous increased-capability payoff in the future development of our augmentation means.

      I think these notions of interdependence and regeneration are a very key observation.
