"Ultimately this Earth can be saved for Humankind only if people are prepared to live with Nature rather than upon Nature. We have been taughta that this World and all plants and creatures thereon were created for man's use; that he was given dominian over all other forms of life and that he must go forth and multiply. It is now clear that if he follows that belief, his extinction is inevitable. Therefore, his whole relationship with Earth amd with Nature must change rapidly. But relationsips between individuals or between man and his environment are intellectual and of the spirit rather than of material gain or loss......Consciousness of that relationship must be improved rapidly by all means within our power..........Perhaps a beginning would be the sort of World Conference which you envisage, a call not only to man's intellect, his comprehension and reasoning power, but also to the driving force of his underlying spirituality, his ability to care for others, for other forms of life, for the Earth as his home and responsibility."
