Tibet and Mars

One of Graham's detractors writes:

Notably, he (Harman), mentions Tibet, as a futuristic place where the people would be comfortable going to Mars, or wherever (sorry that it is politically incorrect, but no, this is not a futuristic people

Oh, actually, that's me: it's from a section called “Tibetans in Space” in The Ecological Thought. I stand by it 100%. It's us Westerners who would eat each other on a long space mission, since it's us who have the ideology of place.

Interesting coincidence though: Graham
writes in “Object-Oriented Philosphy” about some grains of dust on Mars and a Tibetan zoo...
