THE 4 BEHAVIORS

INTENTIONALLY LIVE THE 8 INSTRUCTIONS

Learn

The 8 INSTRUCTIONS arise directly from matter-of-fact expressions of life in the natural world. Learn right now from these examples of scientific exploration into our relationship with nature – as nature.

INSTRUCTION NO. 1
CONNECTION

The trees of the forest are connected to each other by means of vast underground fungal networks. They talk.

INSTRUCTION NO. 2
VARIETY

Every day evidence comes forward showing how ecosystem diversity is vital to health – health of the environment and health of human bodies. Here’s evidence related to Lyme disease.

INSTRUCTION NO. 3
BALANCE

Wolf biology shows that wolves function in highly balanced societies that survive and thrive when feminine and masculine qualities are equally evident – when care is balanced with agency.

INSTRUCTION NO. 4
RELATIVES

We’ve known primates recognize themselves. We know dolphins have names for each other. Recently, scientists have found self-recognition in manta rays.

INSTRUCTION NO. 5
EFFICIENCY

One of our favorite words is murmuration – most associated with starlings that fly by the hundreds – even thousands – in swooping intricate coordination with never a wing clip.

INSTRUCTION NO. 6
RESILIENCE

Salmon swim home against the current, overcoming obstacles like human-made dams – against all odds. We’re learning that, for humans, too, living through stress builds biological courage.

INSTRUCTION NO. 7
ELDERHOOD

An orangutan mother may spend five years teaching her offspring how to build perfect thatched sleeping nests in the branches of trees.

INSTRUCTION NO. 8
UNCERTAINTY

Biological science has determined mystery to be a fact of life. Searching for the missing link to finally explain life on earth, scientists come ever closer, even as they become more certain there will always be things we can’t ever know.

Inquire to Break Through

Full Ecology can best be found in the times and spaces that on most days you tend not even to see. Sort of like the Chinese ancients observed long ago when they wrote only fish cannot know water. There are circumstances sustaining human life that none of us tends to...
