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.
