Anyone else watch this show tonight? If that doesn't put it all into a more perfect perspective than any thing else Ive seen in ages.....there is nothing on this planet that doesn't depend on the whole SYSTEM. It just gives me more motivation to make permiculture take hold with the masses. I'm glad I just got a bunch of seeds today and picked tons of greens and broccoli from my woody/hugel garden. Looking forward to my personal part of the world system taking off this spring and making all of yours better, together. Permies rocks.

I really want to watch the show but don't have a Television. Thus, I have to wait for it to come online (video.pbs.org). They are pretty quick about it; happy to see my donations are working.

While on the topic of complex systems, yes, I think the planet Earth is one of the most complex systems ever. I come from a background in science and engineering, where in order to try and understand something you take enormous effort to break the complex system apart and study only one small aspect of the system. It really removes you from overall complex system. Yet, being the critical thinkers we are I've encountered the "all connectedness" of complex systems in Buddhism where all beings are interconnected, Native American beliefs where all things are connected, and quantum physics where observing a phenomenon can change the phenomenon of observation.

While still new to Permaculture, I really like what I see. I can't remember which permaculturist said it 'we must realize that we are part of nature and stop working against it'.
