"To us, sustainable developmentrequires an integration of the ECOLOGICAL IMPERATIVW to stay within the carrying capacity of the planet, the ECONOMIC IMPERATIVE to provide an an adequate standard of living for all, and the SOCIAL IMPERATIVEto develop forms of governance that promote the values people want to live by."

This statement in all it's perfection seems to miss a fourth imerative. The imperative of religiousness. That to me means to be the the essence of the cohesive meaning of the above statements. The spiritual nature of the manifested is the glue that turns work into worship and nuks and crannies into temples of becoming.

Thank you for these postings, it's been a great pleasure, and more, to read them.

You wrote, "The spiritual nature of the manifested is the glue that turns work into worship and nuks and crannies into temples of becoming." ... yes! Just so! As has been written elsewhere, in the old texts, "every sound is music and every movement, dance".

I think that there can be a wholesome appreciation of the commonplace without making such a lucid view explicit. Or, perhaps more accurately, such a lucide view can only arise from the wholesome appreciation of the mundane; everyday life as the stuff of insight. And that's the catastrophic nature of reduction for the sake of rational pragmatism: restricting the case and reducing the situation, we lose the rich alternative futures as we discard the chaotic.
