His work discusses ecology, systemic thinking and the relation between consciousness and technology. In one of your books you offer a post-materialistic vision on society. What does post-materialism mean? Post-materialism is a term that has been used by sociologists for more than 40 years to describe certain values focused on human participation, interest in ecology and respect for diversity, in contrast to the so called materialistic values, centered in economic and military security.

The world-view in recent centuries stems from the idea that there only exists what you can touch and count, and two of the fathers of modern science have said so: Galileo and Descartes. Post-materialism, along with avant-garde science, foregrounds all that is qualitative and intangible, such as human interiority, instead of those materialistic ideals of control, quantification and possession.

This concept was born after reading the most rigorous scientific magazines, such as Nature or Science. I reached the conclusion that what defines life is intelligence, that is, the capacity for finding new answers to unprecedented situations. For instance: Google translator will never be able to translate a poem as well as a human being would.

To translate a line you need to understand it first. Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness , signed by some of the best neuroscientists in the world and also by Stephen Hawking, states that it has been proven that mammals and birds have similar neurological capacities and moods to us. And secondly — and this is more subtle, less evident — developing our intuition and interior lives.

He said that as well as ecology we need ecosophy. Ecology is the science of ecosystems, whilst ecosophy is the wisdom that integrates this knowledge. Ecosophy is a deeper perspective on our relationship to the world.

After teaching in the UK, when I had to come back, I realised I preferred to be here than in the big city. We also have more noise and building-work each year, but there still remains some of the charm that has attracted so many people here throughout history!
