“DESPITE WE PROUDLY CLAIM TO DOMINATE NATURE,
WE ARE STILL ITS VICTIMS, AS WE HAVE NOT LEARNED
TO DOMINATE OURSELVES.
SLOWLY, BUT WHICH SEEMS FATAL TO US,
WE ATTRACT DISASTER.”
IF ART DOES NOT EXPAND CONSCIOUSNESS,it is of NO use.
When and why did part of humanity begin to see nature as a parallel reality to be subjected and explored, denying the evidence that human beings, animals, plants and the environment are part of the same system in absolute synergy?Some authors claim that this split took place and deepened from the 17th century onwards when Francis Bacon declared that nature should be forced to serve and for that it would be necessary to explore it until extracting its secrets from it and Descartes announced the separation between the mind and the matter.At the beginning of the 18th century, Isaac Newton, with his mechanistic view of the world, made a gigantic advance, synthesizing and immensely improving the ideas and methods of his predecessors with an approach that was soon applied to all sciences, astronomy, chemistry, biology and so on. on.When considering that the world, outside our minds, is nothing more than lifeless matter, functioning according to predictable and mechanical laws, devoid of any spiritual quality, a rule was created to distance us from the living nature that sustains us and which provided humanity with the perfect excuse to exploit all “natural resources” for the purpose of serving their own immediate and selfish goals, without any concern for other living beings or the future of the planet.This way of relating to the world that divides the totality of human life into mind and body and declares feelings, intuition and imagination worthless, transforms nature into “resources” to be controlled and exploited, instead of a living organic system to be explored. be cared for and supported. There is no place in the current paradigm for any form of consciousness and as it is proven by modern physics that consciousness can have an effect on physical reality, there has to be a paradigm shift that makes room for the incorporation of consciousness into the structure of the universe. Only then will humankind cease to oppose nature and become part of it.Pablo Di Giulio (Bibliographic source: "The Uninhabitable Land: A History of the Future", David Wallace-Wells and "The Tao of Physics", Fritjof Capra)
