This chapter discusses the meaningful end of the human-dominated geological epoch and examines the role of technology in relation to it. It proposes that the transition to a meaningful post-Anthropocene is supported by experiencing ʼnon-technology’ or ‘without-technology’. Further technologization will only accelerate anthropogenic destruction, while the absence of technological instruments and a technological mode of being will do the reverse. The chapter conceptualizes this phenomenon of ‘atechnology’-the absence of instruments and the instrumental relation to being in nature. Atechnological experiences are used descriptively to explain how the earth can move to a post-Anthropocene epoch and employed also for normative purposes, to ignite sustainable change. The ‘technology-atechnology’ continuum the chapter introduces importantly allows sustainability scholars and policymakers to deliberate not only on the proper kind of technology or the amount of technology needed, but also to consider atechnology as a way to relate to the world, others, and oneself.
