Capra's "The Hidden Connections"

Uploaded by :

10 pages in length. Mankind likes to think of itself as a unique entity amidst all of creation that is entitled to special advantages over and above other sentient and inanimate beings. This egocentric perspective been both a service to and menace for the entities that live alongside human beings on planet Earth; through the inherent need for progress, man as a species has thought little about the consequences his technological advancements have upon the world and beyond and as such has made it more than just a little challenging to sustainably coexist. Humanity's greatest downfall, according to Capra (2002), is the incapability to understand how every last thing within the scope of man's existence is inextricably interconnected; to ignore this realization is to progress as a species at the grave expense of sustainability.
