    Alpha Lo on Water

    Alpha Lo on Water

    Quick recap

    The active participants in this meeting were Kathryn Alexander MA, Alpha Lo, Daniel Mello-Mattos, and Mark Kroening. Kathryn and Alpha had an enlightening discussion on the interplay between biodiversity, water, and the environment. They explored the impact of
    biodiversity on water and the environment, the role of different species in the food web, and the cycle of nutrients. They also touched on the concepts of
    symbiosis and ecologies, and the interplay between organisms and the environment. The conversation concluded with a shared interest in the interplay between energy, order, and life.

    Summary

    Biodiversity, Symbiosis, and
    Thermodynamics

    Kathryn and Alpha had a comprehensive
    discussion about their backgrounds and interests. Kathryn shared her studies in living systems and interest in systems thinking, while Alpha talked about their
    work at Stable University and with the Climate Water project. They discussed the impact of biodiversity on water and the environment, with Alpha explaining
    the role of different species in the food web. They also touched on the Daisy world model and the cycle of nutrients. Kathryn found the discussion enlightening
    and emphasized the crucial role of biodiversity in environmental management. They further touched on the concepts of symbiosis and ecologies, leading to a
    discussion on the interplay between organisms and the environment. Kathryn concluded by expressing her belief that all life is crucial and contributes in ways not yet fully understood, suggesting a connection between their discussions and his work on the fourth principle of thermodynamics.

    Thermodynamics, Order, and Life's
    Energy

    Alpha and Kathryn discussed the concept of entropy and order in thermodynamics, with Alpha explaining that an
    increase in entropy ultimately leads to a more audit state. They also explored how this concept applies to life, with Kathryn suggesting that life might be
    about creating order out of chaos. Alpha further elaborated that life, like a highly ordered system, requires energy to maintain itself. The conversation
    concluded without a clear resolution, but with a shared interest in the interplay between energy, order, and life.

    Life-Enhancing Actions and Sustainable
    Practices

    Alpha and Kathryn engaged in a discussion about the interconnectedness of life, the role of plants in
    generating rain and increasing biodiversity, and the potential application of this concept to address global warming. Kathryn emphasized the need to shift
    focus towards more life-enhancing actions, while Alpha extended the metaphor to economic activity, highlighting the need for more diverse and sustainable
    practices. They both stressed the importance of focusing on diversity and life in their work, and Alpha suggested a shift towards focusing on the growth of living systems. Kathryn expressed a preference for working with plants over robots, and they explored the concept of growing houses as a way to enhance life.

    Ecosystem, Water, Climate: Education
    and Replenishment

    Alpha and Kathryn discussed the importance of understanding the ecosystem on land, particularly in relation to water cycles and climate. Alpha shared their work with the Climate Water Project & Regenerative Water Alliance, which aims to educate & raise
    awareness about the interconnectedness of water and climate systems. Kathryn expressed interest in these topics, particularly the Water Alliance's efforts,
    and shared her own project in Spokane that focuses on replenishing the aquifer. The conversation also touched on the importance of keeping water within local
    communities to prevent the need for expensive & unsustainable water transportation.

    Water, Fire, and Life Origins, Climate Design Project: Watershed Restoration and Vegetation Impacts & Planet, Sensors, Climate, Community were additional topics covered.

    Understanding Love

    Kathryn's concern about the escalating violence and uncertainty in the world leads her to discuss the need for
    adaptability and learning new skills. She emphasizes the interconnectedness of love and life and encourages a shift from a human-centric to a life-centric perspective. She invites others to join her in the "coming home"
    project, which involves loving life and rediscovering engagement with it.

    Summary

    Global Uncertainty and Violence Concerns

    Kathryn expressed concern about the increasing violence and uncertainty in the world, citing examples such as the conflict in Ukraine and Gaza, political divisions in the United States, and natural disasters like those in Tennessee and the Philippines. She emphasized
    the anxiety and fear caused by these events and the resulting desire to cling to familiar ways.

     

    Love, Life, and Adaptation: A New Perspective

    Kathryn discussed the need to adapt to new situations and learn new skills, emphasizing the importance of love and life. She argued that love and life are intertwined, and that being alive involves a desire to be alive. She highlighted the need to support life and become a partner with it, suggesting that this would help mitigate feelings of anxiety, despair, and anger. Kathryn also differentiated between non-attachment, which involves curiosity and allowing things to unfold, and detachment, which means not caring or being engaged. She suggested a shift from a human-centric to a life-centric perspective and invited others to join her in the "Coming
    Home Project,” which involves loving life and rediscovering engagement with it.

    Interview: Daan Gortner from GaiaNet

    Interview: Daan Gortner from GaiaNet

    In this one hour interview, Daan shares his journey and the creation of GaiaNet. His and his wife's dream of over 100 cities of light is being brought to life slowly. Daan explains GaiaNet and how it works to develop the quality of relationships need to attain that dream. I came away very impressed with the effort they have put into their governance structure. I believe that this provides a model for others attempting a more egalitarian governance approach. Taking the time to develop relationships is new to most of us, and it presents a big hurdle to many.

    This interview was held as part of the offerings to The Coming Home Project network - join us.
