Arguing that feelings of separateness from Nature are mirrored in lack of connection to authentic urban life, Edmund Fowler points to numerous examples of humans who have transcended this culture of separation. In many places, peoples' energy and intelligence have produced, over time, an intricate web of land uses and interpersonal relationships that are subversive of the dominant culture of corporate urban development.At the same time, the social and economic vitality of these places shows an ecological intelligence that cannot be planned from above.
