The desire that encourages us is to be friendly with the Mount, that is, that our actions do not harm or interfere with the natural phenomena that captivate us so much.
An example: the Guanaco (Lama guanicoe) has an adaptation on its legs (pads) that allows it to enter Las Vegas at high altitude, drink and eat from them, without damaging them. This adaptive phenomenon is known as part of co-evolution, that is, it is about organisms that have coexisted for millions of years, exchanging and feeding back with the environment so that life is possible. Organisms “perceive and understand” the environment by adapting to it. In the same way, the Yareta (Lareta acaulis) has hidden its trunk -under the foliage of its branches and underground- as an adaptive strategy to the environmental conditions of the high-Andean region.
We have not co-evolved with the Mountain, however through our understanding and through our emotions we may be able to connect and understand this natural environment in which we like to be. This is our challenge today.
Let’s see some of the needs:
