PREFACE

“Does Nature Inspire the Arts of Love?”

SerenaGaia Anderlini-D’Onofrio, PhD

Does nature inspire the arts of love?

. . . . .

Drama is the consciousness of life. Anot5-18.GR-Embrace(1)her way to put this–and one that expands from the person to the species—is, in the celebrated words of the Bard, “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” Puritans and their movement closed theaters for a while. With Cromwell’s controversial rule, the king was beheaded and the court exiled. Was it that Puritans and other social rebels of their time did not like to play, or, perhaps more likely, that they were too poor to feel genuinely invited to partake in the play of life? Pace their sense of being left out–which was in many cases well justified–this space between “play” and “life” is where consciousness resides.

. . . . .

This book’s invitation to ecosexuality welcomes everyone. It is an invitation to understand consciousness as the awareness of being a performer in one’s own life. If the nature of consciousness is play, what could be more natural than allowing nature to inspire the arts of love? Oh fellow animal, be human and be welcome to Ecosexuality.
