This month we bring you a wonderful treasure-chest of eco-philosophies and actions. We have Gregory Bateson talking about connectedness. He asks: What thoughts can I share regarding the total biological world in which we live and have our being? How is it put together? ... What is the pattern which connects all the living creatures? Its an important question and Bateson feels that Most of us have lost that sense of unity of biosphere and humanity which would bind and reassure us all -with an affirmation of beauty.
