 April 11 ó Desideratum 4: Assess Your Own Connectedness

Ancient beliefs assert humanity and nature are two separate entities that occupy this planet, and those assertions have become embedded in our culture. But our absolute reliance on nature for fiber, food, and medicine argues otherwise. This becomes the naturalistís quest: assess your own connectedness.

2017 series description - Views and Vistas: A Naturalist's Desiderata

Some things in life we can prove to be true; some things we know to be true; and some things we accept to be true. Things we accept become beliefs. A desideratum is a powerful belief, a tool by which we guide our passage through life. When difficult decisions must be made after all facts have been assessed, the desiderata of our lives guide how we proceed. Naturalists cope with the interface between humanity and nature, a confrontation sometimes elegant, sometimes hostile. These are a naturalistís desiderata, the tools by which humanity can survive nature and nature can survive humanity.
