Hello everybody! Recently I've been thinking a lot about humans role in the environment and how we should respond to certain global issues in the world. I've come across a theory called Biophilia coined by Harvard professor and sociobiologist EO Wilson where he describes biophilia as "the connection that humans subconsciously seek with the rest of life". Because of technological advancement maybe we are disconnecting more from nature where we are constantly finding ourselves indoors for the majority of the day or in cars. Is there a way in our modern way of life to become more biophilic in our design of cities and materials, education system, or even our thoughts toward one another? In the end, just like what our LeConte shirts read, "nature is not just a place to visit it is home". What do you all think?
The low last night dipped to 49 and the current temp is 61.9 with cloudy skies. Enjoy the day!
