Keywords: Integral Ecology, sustainability, depth, span, biosphere, noosphere, humans, transcend, include, obligation, dependence, quadrants

Michael Zimmerman introduces the concept of “depth versus span.” As creatures of the noosphere, we are not restricted to the biosphere in the ways other mammals are – we have a sense of the future, suffer from addictions, and can manipulate our environment extensively. Because of our ability to transcend the biosphere, we have an obligation to keep it healthy. [Co-Director's note: this asset addresses the quadrants element of Integral Theory. - Barrett]
