We are all sentient beings. Our physical bodies and our consciousness work together to experience all the external stimuli of the environment around us. These sensations and perceptions determine how we act upon the world. But this level of sentience hasn’t solved our environmental problem.
We, as humans, are just one pattern among many patterns continually moving in time and space. Our rhythms and metabolic cycles are entangled with all species and living systems. Even the smallest response – has great impact.
