“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

Object-Oriented Buddhism 7

I just wrote this to Ian Bogost but it bears repeating here.

My aim isn't to persuade people to become Buddhists so much as it is to show
a) a way to think OOO that may not have occurred to people yet;
b) to show the flexibility and scope of OOO; and
c) to raise some questions about that whole Marxism–Christianity axis that seems to have assembled itself.
d) provide an alternative to said axis.
