“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

Valuable Post on Ian Hamilton Grant

I really like this post on Grant's reading of Schelling. HT Michael of Archive Fire.

Why the Doctor Who chocolate? Well I used to eat it in the mid-70s (3p!). And those Doctor Who's were all about motorized rubber sfx, aka slime dynamics, the nature of the Universe. Let my good buddy Ben Woodard explain. And Doctor Who's time tunnel was pretty slimy at that point. And chocolate is melty. &c.
