The climate collapse is asking us to look at the world with a different set of eyes. It is asking us to distinguish what is essential and non-essential as we move forward to life in an unpredictable future.

The internet community went abuzz when the 19-minute video of Bayo Akomolafe speaking at the SAND19 Conference [see Science And Non-Duality Summit: The Recorded Livestream] went out. But that talk is only a part of a much longer thesis, one that Akomolafe expounded on in this two-part article for the Science And Non-Duality website. 

In part 1 of his essay, Akomolafe traces the history and culture of science. The entangling web of relations, he says, has been erased from mattering. Our logical, rationalistic science, has completely hidden the invisible as we unearth new discoveries about the world. 

In part 2 of the essay, Akomolafe focuses on climate change, and how the worldview of science has caused us to create more problems with every solution we implement. Climate crisis, he says, is not an external problem. It is an internal characteristic, a manifestation of the unlimited creativity of nature. 

The two parts of the article has been integrated into one file and is available for download below. 

Implications for AI


In previous articles on this website, we showed you that climate change, along with the various global crises we are experiencing today is an opportunity for rebirth [Changing Our Response To A Civilization In Crisis is one of these articles]. Akomolafe’s article cuts to the chase and gets to the root of the problem: all of the technological progress and conceptual transformations offered today are trying to revive a world that is dead. The world as we know it is long gone. We are truly at a threshold, and are faced with the important task of figuring what sort of new world we are going to create. What of the old world are we going to honor and keep alive?
