Eco-communities as a social vision

Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (www.eastwind.org), are very close to our vision of an ecological society

"Gaia" by Tiamat, Album: Wildhoney (1994)


A new serum eradicates the illness
An old man rises from his wheelchair
When suffering unknown attacks the painless
And common animals are becoming rare

As water spins in circles twice
Spiders, snakes and the little mice
Get twisted around and tumble down
When Nature calls we all shall drown

If the earth is dying of a growing thirst
Rain shall fall on dried out soil
And every kind of bud shall burst
A sough of relief to insects - turmoil

As water spins in circles twice
Spiders, snakes and the little mice
Get twisted around and tumble down
When Nature calls we all shall drown


A realization of the power of Nature, a paganistic perception of natute when humans have no technological power and materialistic perceptions of nature. If we keep on living under such perceptions probably we won't reach to this point of selfdestruction. A personification of nature as powerfull Mother Gaia was an effective factor of selfrestriction to the human power and arrogance in the past. On the contrary, a disenchanted and reduced to material perception of nature has led to the predatory and non sustainable exploitation that thrreatens us all with pollution and climate changing. Reason was not always the better consultant per se!
