Science Friction

Life Among Companion Species

All forms of terrestrial life are united by relationships of interdependence. Plants, animals, fungi, bacteria and other microorganisms are part of ecosystems connected to each other. In this symbiotic vision of life, the human ceases to occupy the top of evolutionary history to become one more species, particularly vulnerable.

The title Science Friction operates in two ways: it points to the scientific and cultural frictions, derived from the symbiosis that destabilize the idea of the individual, and at the same time speaks of the urgency of locating ourselves in the emerging interspecies paradigm. If it is true that the whole Earth is alive, it is time to resume contact with our many earthly companions.
