Excerpts from Introduction to Third Phase Transition: Solving The Anthropocene Crisis

On the three zones of Anthropy

“A zonal segregation of the planet will be needed, for transcending into global sustainability. It could only be achieved by entire humanity self-organising in association, around its reintegration as advanced circular metabolism within the earth system. This prospect is based in the uneven outcome of 200,000 years of socio-natural co-evolution, proceeding through two metabolic phases. Now, transition into a third phase has become the global survival issue.

“The mapping of these three zones are all but random. They should depart from the actual results of socio-natural co-evolution, at the outbreak of the Anthropocene crisis.”
