“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

Jackson Composes Himself

Robert Jackson on “Anything you can do, I can do meta.” He brings in Latour, which is precisely where I was going with it.

Stand-out sentence (of many):

the exploration of the common or universal, that of building the composite whilst understanding the relative, heterogeneous basis of composition itself, namely, the grouping together of units that never form ‘the whole’ but a revisable unit.

Honestly I tell you over the last few months my head has been taken apart and reassembled. In a most pleasant way.
