The world alive evidently survives by curving out an orderly space of living conditions in the physical world, where
the natural state of matter is a disorder.

Wind and water currents shape the surface of the Montreal River at the Golden Stairs gorge.

Seeing "it" means different things due to the human mind's variability of perception. Conclusions agreeable to all of us often seem impossible. There is, I think, a possibility of defining a platform of shared understandings, a sort of vocabulary of meanings that we all can accept, to begin with. After all, we can agree that we need oxygen in every breath or that the naked human body can stay alive only in a narrow range of physical conditions.   

The low water level in Great Lakes exposes vast stretches of otherwise submerged bedrock of Canadian Shield.
Let's say I had a head start researching this vocabulary. Still, its content was meaningless without the thoughtful input and scrutiny of others. In the past, I used public and private art galleries to facilitate this exchange. It became expensive and intellectually unrewarding as these institutions gradually became more platforms for exchanging emotions than ideas.

Disputing scientific findings might be spontaneous but unwise; we all experienced the benefits of their implementations. On the other hand, our culture, the widely accessible pool of inarticulate reality interpretations, is undergoing a critical self-evaluation process. It seems to evoke an awareness that democracy is not a self-fulfilling prophecy and could be sustained only by the active participation of the whole society.
The cast shadow of a man assessing fire damage inflicted on the Great Canadian Shield environment.
I see the future through the outcome of a collision between human behaviour and the natural biosphere. It is not a novel observation. The history of humanity gives testimonies of the most enduring yet fallen empires. Therefore, my existence and opinions are irrelevant to interactions between the natural and physical worlds. To influence the positive outcome of this interaction, I should draw the means from the scientific and available empirical data pools.
Urban building with connections to municipal infrastructure mounted on the outside wall painted with natural landscape motives.
Meaning breeds more meanings like ideas give birth to more ideas. They are like stories that might fade away; other times, they assume lives independently, with traits like circulating images of staying power.
