“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Scary Fun

I'm drafting some things to say to the Anthropology department on Wednesday. It will be about ecology, agriculture, presence--you know the score.

As a general rule one should always take an opportunity to share one's crazy mind. It is always helpful.

I was in the Smithsonian archives recently working out why/how/to what extent early anthropologists thought geologic formations had agency - also very fun!
