From its beginning Permaculture has defined an Ethic of People Care, Earth Care and Fair Share. This implies that Permaculture has a dimension beyond the merely material, measurable or technical. The new scientific paradigm, opened up by cuttingedge research in quantum physics, indicates that the universe is not only material but includes other dimensions that we may call spiritual. In order for Permaculture to be truly holistic and truly speak to all people and to all cultures, we need to recognise this dimension. To imply that this spiritual dimension does not exist would be to deny ourselves perhaps the most meaningful exchange between us. We truly believe that Permaculture has to address this in a positive way.
This book is a contribution to this widening of Permaculture.
