France has an Idea

In the hallowed halls of French intellectual circles, a group of avant-garde thinkers embarked on a daring exploration of anti-permaculture ideas and practices, eschewing the constraints of physics and biology in favor of abstract concepts and radical theories. Their approach to sustainability was as unconventional as it was absurd, leading to a series of comical misadventures that defied all logic and reason.

Led by the enigmatic Professor Leclerc, a renowned philosopher with a penchant for the esoteric, the intellectuals delved into a realm of thought where traditional notions of permaculture were turned on their head. Instead of working with the natural world, they sought to transcend it, envisioning a utopian society where plants grew upside down, animals spoke in riddles, and the laws of physics were mere suggestions.

One of their most audacious experiments involved the cultivation of a garden where time flowed backwards, plants grew in reverse, and the concept of cause and effect was a mere illusion. The intellectuals, lost in their abstract musings, believed they were on the cusp of a revolutionary breakthrough in sustainable agriculture, unaware of the chaos and confusion their actions were causing in the natural world.

In another misguided endeavor, inspired by the works of surrealists and absurdist playwrights, the intellectuals attempted to create a farm where crops were grown not in soil, but in the dreams of sleeping poets. They believed that by harnessing the power of imagination, they could transcend the limitations of traditional farming practices and usher in a new era of agricultural enlightenment.

As their experiments grew increasingly bizarre and detached from reality, the intellectuals found themselves entangled in a web of their own making, where logic and reason had long since been abandoned in favor of whimsical flights of fancy. The once-promising vision of anti-permaculture had devolved into a farcical spectacle of hubris and folly, with the natural world bearing the brunt of their misguided endeavors.

And so, in the annals of French intellectual history, the tale of the anti-permaculture experiment became a cautionary reminder of the dangers of divorcing theory from practice, of prioritizing abstraction over reality, and of the folly of believing that one could outsmart the laws of physics and biology. In their quest for innovation and enlightenment, the intellectuals had lost sight of the very essence of sustainability – the harmonious coexistence of humanity and nature, grounded in humility, respect, and a deep understanding of the world around us.

Marko, I'm wondering if this is something you wrote, or you found somewhere. It really doesn't matter. I just wanted to be sure my high praise was directed correctly.

There are a certain few things in this posting I disagree with, and I may write of them later. But for now, it is so nice to read something so well written. Such a pleasure to read (hear) someone write without use of filler words and "Ah-h-h" or "like". It becomes wearying, longing for the more informed discourse and politer language of former times. Thank you.

Hi Jim, that's my own little creation, obviously its a satire, which doesn't have much dialog, which is just not my strongest part,
I do have more stories coming so stay tuned, I'm just little shy about it, so it helps me to share with limited audience,
in time maybe this could expand on those stories, its more like a first draft of an idea, glad you enjoyed it.

Haha, it sounds like you're writing about university/college and how strange it can be.

Hi Riona, since who knows how long - public education can be quite unrooted, dislocated from fundamental realia of human condition and biology, studying agriculture for 4 years never touching dirt, studying economy and be poor as dust.... I just wondered ... what if I take it a little further...
