2013 Summary EcoPeace Treaty Work Between the Emerald Ash Borer and Ash Trees; Goals and Principles.
What is the EcoPeace Treaty agreement?
An EcoPeace Treaty is a mutual agreement among 2 organisms that are usually at odds with each other and people.
EcoPeace Treaties are based on the idea… …that Nature has its own wisdom and all living Beings can co-exist. It is also based on the idea that non-human organisms have their own ways of communicating–mostly through bioenergy interactions.
In this EcoPeace Treaty, the Ash Trees, the Emerald Ash Borer insect, and people have come to an agreement. Each knows what they need to live and thrive. Each wants the other to thrive because that is balance in Nature. This agreement exists within the context of an ecosystem that is highly interconnected. In other words, all of the ecosystem members need to be connected and intercommunicating with each other. When that happens, the two organisms of the EcoPeace Treaty can live in dynamic balance.
The EcoPeace Treaty is triangular because people are always a part of the agreement. People need to support BOTH organisms, and they are supported by both organisms. There is something in this agreement for everyone. All benefit.
This is what the Ash/EAB EcoPeace Treaty looks like to date.
The goal of this research is to show that the Emerald Ash Borer and Ash trees can co-exist:
(a) without the insects killing the trees and
(b) without people having to kill either one, by…
- improving the bioenergetic interconnectivity of all living Beings in a defined ecosystem,
- improving the health of Ash trees, specifically, in that defined ecosystem,
- establishing a condition of dynamic balance in that ecosystem wherein all organisms support the WHOLE. The WHOLE ecosystem is greater than the sum of is parts.
This Institute for Cooperative BioBalance® research is based on 4 principles:
- “Live and Let Live” means collaborating in partnership and cooperation, not attempting to dominate or control. Killing is obsolete.
- If all are healthy, trees and plants can co-exist–live in dynamic balance–with insects, diseases, and related organisms, and vice versa.
- People can communicate with the deep intelligence in trees, plants, so-called “invasives,” and the other living Beings of Nature, and, therefore, can co-create and co-exist in a situation where everybody thrives.
- People need to come from the other living Being’s point of view and collaborate as equals by asking Nature first, with humility! People should not assume superiority or presume that they know best.
