I don’t necessarily feel the presence of mythical spirits or watcher spirits, but I do take the human spirits that people embody to have symbols or graphical logos for me.
The examples people set when I work with them have powerful symbolic representations for me.
We recently have been reforesting, as well as doing smaller, more ‘blitz’ guerilla gardening actions.
The patterns of work we engage in has been radically communal and, I think, has been a concrete demonstration of the practice of radical social ecology.
The graphical plans we scribble, and the handwriting we do on small bits of paper has lead to doodles and, even, writing in concrete we set.
For instance, this anarchist A I wrote in a fireplace we built :-)
To the idea of the personification of spirits, I personally do not know of ever experiencing such a thing in my life, but, that said—if it ever happened to me, I would certainly act rationally and incorporate it into my worldview. I do think that there is a collective human spirit—I am a pantheist of the Spinozan kind, I believe the universe and everything in it is like a big, tremendous, divine organism.
