Both the progressive destruction of our world and our capacity to slow down and stop that destruction can be understood as a function of our experience of time. In our post-modern world, we have cut ourselves off in some ways from other rhythms of life, including the past and the future as well. Yet reflections on our relationship to time and some promising new approaches for changing it suggest that we may be able to inhabit time in a healthier, saner fashion. By opening up our experience of time in organic, ecological, and even geological terms and in revitalizing relationship with other species, other eras--we can allow life to continue on Earth.
