THE BREATHING EARTH

.

.

The Gaia hypothesis is for those who like to walk or simply stand and stare, to wonder about the Earth and the life it bears, and to speculate about the consequences of our own presence here.

It is an alternative to that pessimistic view which sees nature as a primitive force to be subdued and conquered.

It is also an alternative to that equally depressing picture of our planet as a demented spaceship, forever traveling, driverless and purposeless, around an inner circle of the sun.
