Final text for HASTAC on the Anthropocene Extinction

The text will be accompanied by a video from Second
Life. It will be slightly chaotic. I can think of
objections to everything I've written but have had
to stop.

This has been revised and revised; it's not as orderly
now, the threads interweave. I have few references,
since the whole has to be around 20 minutes maximum.
I used E. O. Wilson, various; Science and Science News,
Kathy Rudy, Loving Animals: Toward a New Animal Advocacy,
Matthen and Stephens eds. Philosophy of Biology: Handbook
of The Philosophy of Science, various Buddhist texts,
email information from a number of advocacy groups, and
my own practical paleontological knowledge of fossils
from the Pennsylvanian and Carboniferous. I have a sense,
if not the intelligence, of deep time.
