Another End of the World is Possible
Living the Collapse (and Not Merely Surviving It)
The critical situation in which our planet finds itself is no longer in doubt. Some things are already collapsing while others are beginning to do so, increasing the possibility of a global catastrophe that would mean the end of the world as we know it.
As individuals, we are faced with a daily deluge of bad news about the worsening situation on the planet, preparing ourselves to live with years of deep uncertainty about the future of the planet and the species that inhabit it, including our own.
In all honesty, who is ready for that? How can we cope with the flood of bad news? How can we project ourselves beyond the present, think bigger and find ways not just to survive the collapse but to live it?
In this second book, following <i>How Everything Can Collapse</i>, the authors show that a change of course that opens up new horizons necessarily requires an inner journey and a radical rethinking of our vision of the world, one that might enable us to remain standing during the coming storm, to develop a new awareness of ourselves and of the world and to imagine new ways of living in it. Perhaps then it will be possible to regenerate life from the ruins, creating new alliances in differing directions – with ourselves and our inner nature, between humans, with other living beings and with the earth on which we dwell.
