Description

The relationship between humankind and the natural world has been fractured. In some places, there is no relationship in evidence at all.

Every problem facing mankind*: from inter-personal conflict to international conflict; from social isolation to economic inequality to climate change, the losses of cultural, linguistic and bio-diversity, the loss of indigenous knowledge and the loss of indigenous species - all have been exacerbated by this growing bifurcation.

The earth and our relationship to it are all we have. We can choose to deepen and enhance that relationship, explore its great potential, improve ourselves and the environment in the process, or continue to allow the forces of modern life to undo it.

The Sequitorian Society was founded to preserve, protect and enhance the relationship between mankind and the natural world.

"I believe that the horrifying deterioration in the ethical conduct of people today stems from the mechanization and dehumanization of our lives, the disastrous byproduct of the development of the scientific and technical mentality." A. Einstein

"The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy ... neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water." John W. Gardner

  • Humankind, mankind and even (occasionally) man are used interchangeably in these pages. This is done purposefully to dispell any notion that significant improvement in the human condition can be enabled by simply re-structuring language.
  • *This does not preclude the spiritual life.
