Density implies diversity in the social context, and an economically adaptive mix of renewable land uses. Advances in cultural awareness and communication technologies suggest combinations of effective change due to continuity and intrusions in how people see themselves. The culprit is not the spread of urban living at low densities. The more serious offender is a lack of consensus on the “where” of urbanism and the location of authentic wildness. Creating these separations used to be comfortable until blindness occurred on why the wilderness was no longer necessary.
