Prechtel relates our present country of ecological trouble to the swift disappearance of biodiversity, indigenous cultures, and shared human values. He demonstrates how genuine human tradition is exterminated while genuine (not genetically changed) seeds are misplaced. Like vegetation that turn into extinct as soon as their required stipulations are not any longer met, actual, unmonetized human cultures can not live to tell the tale within the glossy global. To “keep the seeds alive”—both actually and metaphorically—they has to be planted, harvested, and replanted, simply as human tradition needs to turn into actually enticing and significant to the soul, as priceless as nutrients is to the physique. The plausible seeds of spirituality and tradition that lie dormant inside us have to “sprout” into wide sunlight to create genuine units of cultures welcome on Earth.
