The Sequitoria: The Synthesis of Nature and Culture ...
... and the only hope for this planet.

The relationship between humankind and the natural world has been fractured. In some places, there is no relationship in evidence at all.

Every problem facing mankind*: from inter-personal conflict to international conflict; from social isolation to economic inequality to climate change; from social justice issues to environmental challenges - all have been exacerbated by this growing bifurcation.

The earth and our relationship to it are all we have**. We can choose to deepen and enhance that relationship, explore its great potential, improve ourselves and the planet in the process, or continue to allow the forces of modern life to undo it.

The Sequitorian Society was founded to preserve, protect and enhance the relationship between humankind and the natural world.

"I believe that the horrifying deterioration in the ethical conduct of people today stems from the mechanization and dehumanization of our lives, the disastrous byproduct of the scientific and technical mentality." A. Einstein

* Humankind, mankind and even (occasionally) man are used interchangeably in these pages. This is done purposefully to dispell any notion that significant improvement in the human condition can be enabled by simply re-structuring language.

** This does not preclude the spiritual life.

"Men (sic) have sought to make a world from their own conception and to draw from their own minds all the material which they employed, but if, instead of doing so, they had consulted experience and observation, they would have the facts and not opinions to reason about, and might have ultimately arrived at the knowledge of the laws which govern the material world." - Francis Bacon

"The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy ... neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water." - John W. Gardner

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” - Robert Heinlein
