The world is animate. It changes around us in ways we have little control over. Storms reshape coastlines. Fires burn down neighborhoods. Rain cancels sports games. However these are not the only agents shaping the world. Increasingly, AIs and DAOs have forced us to consider a world where software exists as active agents with the market, making transactions and effecting their will upon the material world. With these ideas considered, it has become clear that these are not the only agents capable of participating in the act of world shaping. As terra0 explores, if we are to give agency to primitive AIs, what is to stop us from including forests, plants and ecologies within frameworks of exchange and communication.
