Paraphrased from Ethan Niederer's Essay on Human Ecology, College of the Atlantic 2003.
Human ecology is the cataphatic, love mystic saying "this, this, this" and "yes, yes".
Human ecology's primary direction comes from its practitioners. With great stock in and passion for the work they feel is profound and important.
Human ecology sees that the world is beautiful. Human ecologist work to be awake to it and to be in fully in it; to disregard the apophatic, neti neti "not this, not this" in favor of positive action, to honor and enjoy the sweetness of this life.
