I pass these words on in the spirit of Spring Theory, hoping they live long and fruitful lives.

Homo hubris/Mundus Nemesis ~ The foolishness of anthropocentrism and Earth’s correlating acts of ‘revenge’ ~ reflexivity of climate volatility, sea level rises, drought, flood, leading to extinction.
Hubrigenesis ~ the evolutionary aftermath of the biospheric violence of the Anthropocene.
Humammal ~ humans as ‘animal’.
Kinnage ~ a new kind of human/non-human community living. Where nature and fluminism is paramount, ourselves being just a part of the whole.
Kinnaria ~ wild places in and around cities, urban areas and kinnages. To replace ‘Green Space,’ with awildian love and meaning.

Praximund ~ the deepest possible respect for natural processes, and a fundamental requisite of fluministic action.
Sanguimund ~ seeing nature as community, affecting the viscera, and another fundamental requisite of fluministic action.

Summimbers ~ curtains of rain seen at a distance.
Symling/s ~ colloquial name for holobiont/s.
Teresapien ~ a positive word to use instead of ‘non-human.’
Transilience Gap ~ biodiversity declines and climate changes may require more radical solutions before many people are ‘ready’ to take the risk. There is a gap or a deficit.
Traumundi ~ the trauma of the collective living Earth caused by climate and ecological shock. Neologism borne from ecoinsomnia!
Tweavelet ~ small leaf bundle snagged around a twig, in and around rivers.
Tweeterie ~ philosophy by tweet thread.
Valens (Planet) ~ a re-naming of our planet, to promote love as fundamental to life-process (fluminism).

Xenotrauma ~ specific new and heinous form of human anguish inflicted by those prejudiced against foreigners, xenophobes who despise and fear desperate people fleeing desperate situations. Particularly profound at hard, international borders.
