The Metropolis Organism comes alive before your eyes and within your mind. A new, evolving medium, the enhanced ebook, is the perfect vehicle to bring to life a daring concept: cities are living, breathing organisms of which humans are necessary but unremarkable organelle. If this sounds startling, don’t worry. You will get used to it. We humans have had practice adjusting to scientific theories that humble us.
Copernicus took us out of the center of the universe and placed us on a minor planet orbiting a minor star. It took a while but humanity got used to the idea. Darwin took humanity off its pedestal and put us among the swarthy animals that crawl the earth. It took a while, and may take a while longer for some, but eventually we’ll all get used to it. And it may be hard to see now, and even harder to accept, that we are parts of another organism, but it will be seen and will be accepted because, quite simply, it is obvious.
The purpose and the goal of the eBook, The Metropolis Organism, is to help you see the next stage of the evolution of life. Like the transition from single cell organisms to multicellular organisms, we are experiencing the transition stage from a species of independent humans to the Metropolis Organism.
