Text 20 Mar 2 notes Jawa Terpelajar

Kalau pada suatu kali bertemu dengan seorang Jawa yang terpelajar, cobalah ajak dia bicara tentang keris, wayang, puji-pujilah ketinggian gamelan dan tarinya, kata Tuan L. Selanjutnya, pujilah ketinggian filsafatnya, kebatinannya. Kalau dia menjadi antusias dan membenarkan puji-pujian Tuan, dia tidak akan mencapai sesuatu apa pun dengan keterpelajarannya.

Text 20 Mar The Hidden Luxury for Poor People

Quote 30 Jan
…the study of biodiversity is still largely in a Linnaean phase of discovering and naming species. Although
our tools are more advanced, in many ways the science of biodiversity is not much farther along than
medicine was in the Middle Ages. We are still at the stage, as it were, of cutting open bodies to find out what
organs are inside. The low investment in and slow pace of biodiversity research might be tolerable were it
not for the overwhelmingly rapid dest
ruction of the natural world. Without hyperbole we can truthfully say
that we are almost out of time to save much of the diversity of life on Earth
