Talking of fires – “The Embers and the Stars”

Some recommended reading (from a friend).

The Embers and the Stars
By Erazim Kohak

With catastrophic bushfires lying somewhere between the ‘properly’ domestic hearth and the fusion furnaces of suns, I  am told that the work of Erazin Kohak explores the idea that morality is not some add on extra but inherent in cosmos itself.

Such an idea would appear to be central to the Ways of Australia’s First Peoples, where a ‘well-tempered’ cosmos appears to have been the aim of so much of their higher level activities.
