Dark Ecology

Deep Ecology buries the dead too fast (reducing everything to an expression of Gaia), while modernity tries to torch them in a familiar story of a war against matter. Meanwhile clouds of radioactive waste haunt the world. So while we campaign to make our world “cleaner” and less toxic, less harmful to sentient beings, our philosophical adventure should in some ways be quite the reverse. We should be finding ways to stick around with the sticky mess that we're in and that we are, making thinking dirtier, identifying with ugliness, practicing “hauntology” (Derrida's phrase) rather than ontology.“

The Arctic silence is loud, and I strain my ears to take it all in. It’s not often you hear something close to absolute silence, and it is an arresting and moving sound. –Chris Lowery
