Twitter Mosaic is a social networking art project that takes Twitter user icons and forms large mosaics with them. I was included in the most recent creation, The Blue Marble, and can be found in the 13th icon of the top row of the negative version, if you care to look.
To be an inseparable part of the earth in art as in reality is pleasing. But to authentically embrace the world in its entirety requires much of us. We must stretch our identities, our perspectives and our abilities beyond what most of humanity has been capable of.
Today we are being called by luminaries such as Al Gore at Live Earth to take action in our care for our world. This is a new emergence and such a fragile one. That we actually care about all of humanity and all of the life this world holds is incredibly rare and intrinsically new. Because of this, the challenges in communicating a rare stance to people who have not already developed a care for the world stemming from their structure of consciousness is immense.
One tool in communicating to people about the importance of environmentalism that I’ve been enthusiastic to learn has been an understanding of altitiudes of consciousness, which help to determine what we value, the perspectives we can take and our capacity to understand the world. Integral Naked has offered Communicating Integral Sustainability, a wonderful series of lecture videos that gives us strategies for promoting environmentalism effectively to people who are not at a worldcentric or higher level of being.
That the world is not my problem
The world is not my problem
I am the world
And you are the world
