I know what Dark Ecology will be. I figured it out in Australia, and it was confirmed in France. I'm not telling. Dipesh is into it, for sure.
I know it will be this cloud, rather than that cloud. I've written the first and last words of it. Finally it feels right. I've written it twice already!
I tend to work in a somewhat intuitive way. And I tend not to want to repeat myself, either in form or in content. The most important wish is not to repeat form.
I've realized that from Dark Ecology's point of view, the first two books were the outer and inner parts of a series of concentric circles, the innermost of which is Dark Ecology. For a while I thought of Dark Ecology as part 2, where The Ecological Thought was the prequel and Ecology without Nature was part 1. I thought it was simply going to take the ideas of the first two books out for a spin in culture at large. But no.
The concentric model is much more satisfying, from this moment's standpoint.
One thing: it will have loads and loads of pictures. Maybe even an accompanying CD.
