Classification dispossesses our ability to stand in the wonder of life in all its miraculous manifestations

At Project Apology we do not subscribe to the imperialist Linnaean system of labeling and classifying the variety of life forms with which we share our planet in a self-important manner – a system that clearly functions to sanction human delusions of superiority and, more importantly, to appropriate the true essence of all creatures as less than mysteriously perfect manifestations of being.

Thus, if we have to label anything, for the sake of communication, we prefer to use the so-called common name.
