You draw very important conclusions:
<<The mechanization of the natural world underwrites a common worldview that separates humanity from nature, that commodifies ecologies as natural resources.>>
<<But this dominion over nature, which holds humanity as ontologically distinct from the natural world, is intimately dependent on the natural world – we are embedded in an ecological web of mutually maintaining processes.>>
An excellent, extremely relevant and profound essay with questions that force seekers of truth to look for ways to overcome the modern a conceptual - paradigmatic crisis of the metaphysical/ontological basis, which manifests itself as a "crisis of understanding" ("J. Horgan "The End of Science", Kopeikin K.V. "Souls" of atoms and "atoms" of the soul : Wolfgang Ernst Pauli, Carl Gustav Jung and "three great problems of physics"), "crisis of interpretation and representation" (Romanovskaya T.B. "Modern physics and contemporary art - parallels of style"), "loss of certainty" (Kline M. "Mathematics: Loss of Certainty"), "trouble with physics" (Lee Smolin "Trouble with Physics").
Fundamental science and philosophy "rested" in the understanding of space and matter (ontological structure), the nature of fundamental constants, the nature of the phenomena of time, information, consciousness.
To overcome the crisis, the Big Synthesis is needed, a critical look at the entire path of philosophy and science.
Today it is necessary to rethink more deeply and critically the entire dialectical line in philosophy, from Heraclitus to Whitehead and Losev.
The nature of consciousness can be "grasped" (understood) by developing the ideas of Whitehead's "philosophy of process", the entire dialectical-ontological line in philosophy.
More than a quarter of a century ago, mathematician and philosopher Vasily Nalimov set the super-task of building a "super-unified field theory that describes both physical and semantic manifestations of the World" - the creation of a model of a "Self- Aware Universe"
In the same direction, the ideas of the Nobel laureate in physics Brian Josephson (which are not very noticed by mainstream science), set forth in the essay "On the Fundamentality of Meaning"
We need a new view of matter, developing the idea of Plato, his "celestial triangle", the ideas of Bergson ("Matter and memory"), Whitehead's metaphysics of the process, taking into account all the problems in the foundations of physics and the modern information revolution. Matter is that from which all meanings, forms and structures are born. New constructive ontological ideas are needed, plus the development of the dialectic of "coincidence of opposites" (N. Kuzansky) to build a primordial (original, ontological) generating structure ("missing structure" by W. Eco), ontological framework, carcass, foundation of knowledge. Ontological (structural, cosmic) memory, "soul of matter", its measure is the semantic core of the "superstructure". "New physics" is Ontological physics. This requires a Big Ontological Revolution in the foundations of knowledge, building in the foundations of knowledge of the New Expanded Ideality.
The great minds of the past give us good philosophical precepts:
John A. Wheeler: “We are no longer satisfied with insights only into particles, fields of force, into geometry, or even into time and space. Today we demand of physics some understanding of existence itself."
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: "The true physics is that which will, one day, achieve the inclusion of man in his wholeness in a coherent picture of the world."
A.N. Whitehead: “A precise language must await a completed metaphysical knowledge.”
A.Zenkin: "the truth should be drawn..." (SCIENTIFIC COUNTER REVOLUTION IN MATHEMATICS)
Pavel Florensky: “We repeat: worldunderstanding is spaceunderstanding."
