"What is Commons Thinking?
The Commons are life-sustaining or life-enhancing resources and services
that have not
been divided up and assigned a monetary value in the global economy but
instead are shared
freely among members of a community or group. They range from the air we
breath, pollination
provided by bees, land that provides food for gathering and sharing rather
than selling,

to appropriate, own and sell resources that were once freely accessible,

*Definitions of Permaculture*

*All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is
everything. What we think we become. Buddha*

*Fukuoka san's comment in an interview where Fukuoka san, Bill Mollison and
Wes Jackson were present: "The confusion started when humans ate the Fruit
of Knowledge. Adam and Eve were thrown away from the Garden of Eden. The
only way to get back is to throw away the knowledge! Just become foolish
like a bird or baby."*
