Microanimism


Quote:The microbial world encompasses a vast array of beings - bacteria, viruses, archaea, and all manner of other tiny organisms. Animism is a way of life that emphasizes the development of relationships with people that aren’t necessarily human - and how to navigate these relationships in a respectful, reciprocal and productive way. Microanimism examines the microbial world and how it relates to human experience and culture. Started in 2019, as a collection of blog posts written by founder Siv Watkins, our community is now growing into a platform for practical tools and exploration and training in animism, microbial animism, science, and science-related ritual. Microanimism is all about studying and expanding our relationships to microbial wisdom in order to probe the crossover between science and the esoteric. Science, after all, begins with a connection to earth.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

- Bertrand Russell

Any website featuring a quote from L. Margulis is for me.

Quote: “LIFE ON EARTH IS SUCH A GOOD STORY...YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS THE BEGINNING. THE WORLD SHIMMERS, A POINTILLIST LANDSCAPE MADE OF TINY LIVING BEINGS.”

Lynn Margulis
