Victor: You’re putting words in my essay that aren’t there. All I said at the end was that we should develop a philosophy that connects us to the universe and planet from which we evolved, to give us meaning and the desire to protect our living systems. I never said all the other things about “rational prediction” and total control. In fact, I am quite well-versed in chaos theory, all kinds of apocalyptic theory, and have written a book using and critiquing these theories. Before you trash me, maybe you should use Google see what other stuff I have written.
