Living Round

We live in square framed houses, built on square shaped foundations and look through square shaped windows. Many of us go to work in square shaped offices and stare at square shaped computer screens, then come home to watch square shaped TVs.

There’s something satisfying about the square, its straight lines and even corners - so stackable…,predictable. manageable.

Yet a square exists nowhere naturally in nature.

Instead of living in ways that are adaptive to nature, we’ve been living so nature will adapt to us.

And that’s exactly what’s happening.

Alan Watts had a lot to say about the disastrous effects of trying to impose straight-lined and squared-off concepts on an inherently wiggly world. Check out some of his books, especially The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are.
