Just thinking out loud here. As impending economic, environmental and social decay start to slip many humans backwards in time and some of the horrors of history start to re-emerge but this time coupled to high technology in many cases, maybe it is time for “permaculture” to shine. The concept of "atomic permaculture” would appear to capture several things.... 1. Rather than 2 dimensional zones, a new type of compact permaculture understanding might be constructed of 3 dimensional system shells of varying potential like in atom theory and “chemistry" between separate systems also considered. 2. It could also relate to the destruction of cities as they are currently known, or to be more specific, a process by which permaculture could destroy the environmental, economic and socially destructive capacity of cities by educating the population and providing more attractive alternatives. The question is whether cities as they currently stand are "too far gone” to be properly enjoyed. Will current cities just become the temporary accommodation for corporate and government slaves of the future until they burn out or get the permaculture bug themselves and want to move to where they can more properly live. 3. Permaculture has often been considered by the rest of society as an experiment only to be carried out in remote cheap locations. Could "Atomic Permaculture" turn this around and become the explosive central powerhouse of “community” in the future that builds its own new types of robust environmental, social and economic systems that are only just starting to show signs of emergence !! This might be a bit of a contrast to the “spanner in the works” theories of the viability or prematurely inducing unsustainable system collapse when really we should be probably “enlightening some of the key decision makers and tightening up their nuts!" Just a little idea - comments welcome!
