Giaome Biogenesis

"As with one eye there is no perception of depth, so with one biosphere our view of the universe lacks depth.  A multiplicity of biospheres not only creates specific new angles of vision; it multiplies perspectives. It may also produce a whole new kind of vision, a sort of biological "hyperspective."" - Dorion Sagan

This is about trying to create a symbol for the idea of biospheric bifurcation, the multiplying of our earth's biosphere and our perspectives on life, evolution, and the earth, ensuring an evolutionary multi-planetary future for our species in the solar system. Evolving both humanity and the biosphere together by exploring the idea of engineering outer earth orbiting biospheres, self-sustaining planetary ecologies, and the idea of “eco-technics”; where permaculture meets astrophysics, and where natural intelligence meets artificial/sentient intelligence. 

The leaves and eyes represent the unfolding of this potential cosmic biogenesis inherent in natures intelligence, and the Apollonian fractal circle gasket represents the multiplying of earth into biospheres.

Overall, we can see the self-organizing, self-sustaining, and self-regulating dynamics of nature and the biosphere as a decentralized but holistic “technology”—an organic self-designing self-intelligent evolutionary systems technology running throughout all of life, that we can interact with in evolutionary ways that open emergent adaptations, transformations, and outcomes.
"We cannot conquer nature with our technology, but we can conquer our technological nature: by working with nature, by conceiving of life as a whole integrated organism of which we are part, we can use our ingenuity for the benefit of all life - and be the more human for it." - Dorion Sagan

"Reproducing biospheres represent a new hour in the human day, a new age in the Earth's ontogeny. If we could examine history under the temporal equivalent of a microscope, we might be startled by the resemblance to organisms and cells of biospheres." - Dorion Sagan 
"We need a new story. We need a story that actually comes out of what we know about the universe. That's our moment." - Brian Swimme

"The ultimate importance of the evolutionary vision lies not just in its power of unifying scientific thinking and stimulating a truly transdisciplinary approach, but also in the philosophy it expresses--a philosophy close to life and its creativity. The alienation of science from life, which has become a matter of growing concern, is about to be overcome by the evolution of science itself." - Erich Jantsch

“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.” - R. Buckminster Fuller

“Successfully running a new biosphere would show people what it takes to make it in our beloved old one.” - Dorion Sagan & Lynne Margulis
