    For a sensible interaction with nature.
    Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the concious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.

    It is the integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs sustainably. Without permanent agriculture their is no possibility of a stable social order.

    A characteristic of permaculture is that the needs of the system for energy are provided by that system and does not depend on external energys.

    The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against nature; of protacted thoughtful observations rather than protracted thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions, rather than asking only one yeild of them; and allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions [and adapting our design to such changes]

    “In life and design we must accept that immutable rules will not apply and instead be prepared to be guided on our continuing exploration by flexible principles and directives”

    “We are led by information, reflection, and careful investigation to moderate abandon or forbid certain behaviors and substances that in the long term threaten our survival. We see how enlightened self interest leads us to evolve ethics of sustainable and sensible behaviors [therefore beneficial to others]”

    What is now possible is a totally new synthesis of plant and animal systems using post industrial or even computerized approach to systems design. Applying the principles of whole system energy flow it is [necessary] to devise permaculture systems for local, regional and personal needs.

    From Permaculture: A Designers Manual by Bill Mollison (1980 something)
