Florence Rice Hitchcock and the Theory of the Soft Earth
An exploration of the physics and geologic properties of interconnection and indeterminacy. The story of a forgotten nineteenth-century geologist (an amalgam of actual people) who dedicated her life to deciphering her visions and developing a theory that predicted future scientific understanding and forefronted social responsibility.
The Theory of The Soft Earth itself had its roots in spiritual and scientific ideas across cultures and time periods, and stretched from the 4th century forward to meet current understanding of the role of uncertainty in how the universe functions, and the effects of humans on the earth and other species.
