“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

"Maybe the future ethics is going to be about tuning in to the kinds of directives that come from non-human beings."

This is permaculture!!!! A being does X, so put that being where it can do plenty of X to everyone's benefit.

...And, if you remove the "non-" from "non-human", then we can talk about tuning in to the directives of individuals, too.

This is my favorite aspect of what you're saying.
