What is Geopoetics?
The purpose of the geopoetics is to reconceptualize the earth. This we know is impossible. The scope of the earth is far beyond what any one person can understand. The earth is vast and incalculable. It is a plethora of being. It is all of its inhabitants. It is you and me. It is all sentient and non-sentient beings. It is everything that is alive and all things dead,. It is all rivers and mountains, all ghosts and spirits, all animals and plants, all microbes and viruses, their minds, their history, our minds, our history, all memories, everything that has happened on, over and under its surface and all the possibilities and hopes of what has not yet occurred. Not, however, as isolated events or as discrete beings, but as integrated parts of a unified, ensouled and evolving whole. The consequences are clear. A geopoetical examination must stand without ground. It must hover the void. It cannot have any purpose, no predetermined function, no cause, no motive, no predefined reasons for why it exists nor any assumptions about where to begin or end. It must stray. It must improvise. Yet it must still be determined. Because the fatal threats that the earth is now facing is a result of a coward indeterminacy that has allowed the earth to be spoken of as a body without life. This cannot go on. The earth calls on us to make a difference. We feel it in our bones. We hear it in the wind. We see it in how the mountains reflect the sun. This project is an answer to the call of the earth. It does not claim to be exhaustive or comprehensive. It does not claim to solve all problems. Yet it is an attempt to do what needs to be done and to articulate what we take this need to be. By identifying the central mechanisms of how the earth is conceptualized, it aims to expose the most pressing problems, analyze their underlying causes, offer some suggestions of how to handle them and thereby to initiate the movement towards the project's main instrumental core: The irreversible and shared emancipation of all earthbound beings. Read the whole declaration of intent here.
A World Without the Rule of MenThe oceans are gathering their forces. The forests inhale. Only the common liberation of all earth bound beings can save us. Through a realistic critique of how we speak about the earth we can start to dismantle the current monobiotic society and begin to establish a new geocratic world order. A world with out the rule of men. We need your help - now!
(2) reification of language
(3) power accumulation
So far, we have identified three main problems. This is were we aim to begin. We need your help in the further analysis and ask for your assistance to assess the accuracy of our observations. Distilled into these three main problems, our premises and some notes of methodology and scope can be found here. Please read and use this text as you please. Any feedback or input is more than welcomed. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(1) expanded emancipatory subject
(2) dereification of language
Answering to the three main problems identified so far, we have tried to work our three solutions or paths of action. These are not yet fully applicable and we need to find ways to implement the ideas they are meant to capture. In the main text (read it here) we have tried to explain why we think that these are good points of departure. In the slider above, you can also find some initial suggestion for how to start implement them.
