Florence Rice Hitchcock and the Theory of the Soft Earth
Florence Rice Hitchcock and the Theory of the Soft Earth explored ideas of interconnection and indeterminacy through the story of a forgotten (fictional) nineteenth-century geologist dedicated to developing a theory that predicted future scientific understanding of chaos and quantum theory and forefronted social responsibility.
The Soft Earth theory has its roots in spiritual and scientific ideas across cultures and time periods, and stretches to meet evolving current understanding of the role of uncertainty in how the universe functions, and the effects of humans on the earth and other species.
