By whatever incident one is awakened, or reawakened, the knowledge dawns that the Earth is an organism of organisms, an interrelated whole, thriving in balance, with no preference for one species over another; that the task of our species is to find our way back into the web. The home truth is that all life wants to live; that life wants to speciate, diversify, and intertwine is immanent in nature. The knowledge that my habitat and therefore, my existence as an organism are threatened is more than idea; it is at once visceral and transpersonal.
