Massive Information responds to the tragedy of modern civilization as if it were a chess game. This collection of essays strategically presents a system of thought that reasserts the fundamental relationship between humanity and the natural world. We—the civilized—have externalized the extinction and genocide that attend our expansion. This separation is very old; it is the dichotomy of man and nature. And although this rift was certainly long established before the time of Descartes, we do find him an iconic symbol of separation. Thus, our effort here is to dethrone Descartes, whose "I think therefore I am" separated mind from matter and man from nature, resulting in a vision of the world-as-machine. This mechanical worldview is not useful in responding to our tragic loss. Massive Information undertakes to supplant this worldview with an ecological vision of an animate world, and to do so upon the Cartesian game board—on Cartesian terms.

These essays also anchor and underpin our earlier book, Quantum Justice. Some of the concepts in QJ that were only heuristically and intuitively defined are now more precisely and rigorously treated in Massive Information.

Sacred Violence: A Family's Quest to Uproot Hitman Culture

Sacred Violence (2017) is an autobiographical account of Paul and Terra's quest to become more closely connected to their own basic needs. When they met in 2001, they shared the recognition that the economic systems that supported their lives were inherently violent, and they began to seek ways to extract themselves from participation in what they have termed "hitman culture." Sacred Violence is their story of committed and direct relationship to the natural world so that they can produce their basic needs with minimum exportation of violence. The book is simultaneously light, thought provoking, engaging, and easy to read. (Excerpts available on sidebar.)

"With Sacred Violence, Paul Feather and Terra Currie have illuminated the ways our everyday lives often empower the very systems we protest. Even more importantly, they offer us a way to contemplate our own personal avenues out of supporting these systems and provide the basis for building and redirecting our resources to local systems that can sustain us and the next generation. Thoughtful, humorous, and nonjudgmental, Sacred Violence is a life-affirming joy to read."
—Megan Bell, Co-Owner, Underground Books and Hills & Hamlets Bookshop

Sacred Violence has now been assigned as required reading in courses at the University of West Georgia and at Appalachian State University, where one student testifies, "I don't know if I have ever connected so hard with a piece of literature...Seriously, this book is amazing!"

Quantum Justice: Theories and Theatrics for the Ecozoic Era

Quantum Justice (2018) explores the imbalanced cosmology that is the root cause of social and environmental injustice. Human activity is largely driven by our Newtonian/Cartesian mechanical stories of the world, and these stories are quite different from the modern physical models of relativity and quantum mechanics. Quantum Justice sketches a map of the world that is consistent with these modern theories and finds many parallels between that map and the worldview described by some of the surviving traditional and indigenous cosmology.

The main thrust of QJ is to consider human behavior as a function of the stories that coordinate human cooperation. Injustice is defined as the presence of structural privilege granted to any person by those stories. The stories themselves are presented as massive resonating wave structures of which every person is a quantum element. All of this is interwoven with a symbolic theatrical piece that addresses the same themes and ideas.

Our newest book, Massive Information should be regarded as a prequel to QJ. MI better lays the foundations of our ecological map of the world. Although accurate, QJ lacked the precise definition that readers will find in MI; the newer work benefits from research that Paul has done in the time since QJ was written. Readers of QJ will also benefit from and enjoy the reading of The Universe Story by Swimme and Berry; The Tao of Physics by Frijtof Capra; The Chalice and the Blade by Riane Eisler; Borderlands by Gloria Anzaldúa; and We Have the Right to Exist by Wub-e-ke-niew—all of which shaped the content of QJ. We are also available to address specific questions, contact us.
