More than 200,000 years of living truthfully* and of searching for the truth*: an abbreviated book with abundant illustrations ... all about applied ecology, for kids from 12 years of age to 120. By and for all Biota
More than 200,000 years of living truthfully, and 5,000 of searching for truth.
The sky is falling for some living things at various points in time in the universes and cosmos. This can be observed through the lens of the Hubble space telescope, at eye levels here on Earth, or in the use of micro & nano technologies. On the other hand, in all these dimensions, in certain spatial/temporal sectors for some species complexes (ecological communities), life is good!
Moreover, this dynamism, incongruity, dilemma, enigma, mystery of humanity, Nature,1 and Earth—which includes war and catastrophes as well as lovers’ love and beautiful harmonies–can be studied and to some extent understood via physics, chemistry, geology, paleontology, anthropology, sociology, and psychology and/or a combined application-process of all of these and other disciplines in a manner which profoundly and comprehensively focuses on life and living systems, i.e., biology and ecology.
Despite the enigmatic, dark, and fearful mysteries, and probably because of them, we all love life. We might especially love life, for example, during a day in my place of residence, Clean (or Real) Seguin, Texas, U.S.A., when we have the grandkids over and it is a cool fall day after a recent rain or when the birds are chirping and we’re sipping on a caipirinha made with quality cachaça, partaking of some of cousin Gilda Colley’s crunchy, tasty strudel, and we’re listening to John Prine singing “You Got Gold” (or even “Some Humans Ain’t Human”).
