Permaculture Lines & Levels

Ethics Ribbon II
Energy (earth) & Awareness (people). Energy is external, physical world, awareness is internal.

Energy is required to interface between systems; the energy cost of interaction increases the further apart systems are from each other in terms of storing energy and/or awareness.

Permaculture is a tool that increases our awareness so that we can capture and/or store more energy and cycle it through the system in a greater number more and efficient ways.

We have available a fixed energy budget based on the sunlight that hits the earth. There is also a limited supply of energy stored by live on earth.

Our ever growing awareness is the only thing that can increase.

 

Conversations with Jesse and Milton – City Permaculture – Energy

Jesse Tack and I have been sitting down and filming ourselves in conversation. Our first session was wide ranging on the theme of social permaculture. This, our second, was much more focused as we talked about ways that we could address the design deficiencies of our current living situation. Strategies that we can easily implement in urban areas to improve our relationship with energy.
