Parliament of All Beings; Thank you!
I love your idea for a Parliament of All Beings where individuals can
advocate for various species. Franz Nahrada and I thought of such
"associations" and "concords" as a natural progression of a world of
"global villages", where there are groups (like trade groups today) that
advocate for each interest, and their are, say, bioregional formums
where they find agreement, as relevant.
I used to collect such endeavors and try to encourage them in masse with
Minciu Sodas, but that's in the past now.
I share your beautiful idea with several groups where somebody might
take it up.
Oh, is there any work that I can do for your research, for example, as a
programmer or mathematician? Please let me know!
Thank you also to Ben de Vries, Dante-Gabryell Monson, Surya Prakash
Vinjamuri, Lawrence Kincheloe for your responses regarding Zenonas
Anusauskas. I hope to write more later. He uploaded a sketch of his
and a PDF in Lithuanian with photos:
I'm finding Twitter helpful. It's a way to have open conversations and,
I hope, reach people who might sponsor my work. I'm at
