Civilization is the best name for the New Human Ecology.
It is the name of my next book that follows the first.
I have been told that it should all be one book, but there are reasons why it should not be.
One of the reasons is that as stated before, I have to be careful not to say anything that will set off the spiritual or moral instincts that are far older than intellect. The first book, Transition
, was to describe the problems we face, what we have to work with and the solution to the first problem, genetic deterioration. I intentionally gave as few opinions or conclusions as I could and described the genetics section in simple moral terms.
Another reason is that just the genetics part lends itself to so much speculation that I intentionally kept it to an absolute minimum. I figure that just that book could lead to a couple new genres of SciFi and at least a dozen anti-utopian novels.
The other main reason was time limitations. I consider that book important and all things considered, if I dawdled, it was never going to get published. I just hope that this one does not take that long.
In any case, this page is intended to have short comments related to the Civilization
book. I hope it turns out interesting... and not too long.
