The language-game of spheres leads to an ecological understanding of culture; a term whose etymology in Latin denotes the care of plants and the tilling of the earth.

I will withhold judgment until I’ve read all three microsphdrology of the Spheres Trilogy, but if this first installation is any indication of the complete package then it is likely to become one of the original philosophical beacons of the 21st century playing perhaps the same role as Heidegger’s Being and Time did in the 20th.
