Co-Existence Philosophy

YAML Question

Humans impact life on Earth for all beings. Humans are part of a larger natural ecosystem but decisions are made only thinking about one specie - humans - and often only "selves".

Co-existence (coex in short) is a philosophy in progress that invites to reflect about ability to sense by various beings not just humans, an interconnectedness of all beings and inclusive life decisions.

So far coex principles are: Attention to feelings that signal the needs. Actions to satisfy the needs. Communication about the needs and actions.

Further thinking is very welcome. Key question - how can a need for self-actualisation and co-existence co-exist?


A key question that would redefine economic development: What kind of conditions are needed for co-existence?


// Humans are part of a larger natural ecosystem but decisions are made only thinking about one specie - humans

Indeed so, and a very important point. Dogs could give a profound level of insight into the world of smells, if they could only translate that over to others.


Fundamental question: How might we understand feelings of other beings? With what kind of language?


//How might we understand feelings of other beings?

A project called 'No More Woof' aims to read dog brainwaves, translates to speech.

New question: do the dogs want this?


[transiency] It seems humans choose to monitor say dogs with brainwaves for the sake of promised understanding. Is there a different way?

How about humans stop "asking for evidence" and admit by default that all species have needs to exist.
