“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

Plankton in the North Atlantic

...it hasn't existed there for 800 000 years.

A whale swam through the Northwest Passage to Israel.

In the Renaissance, humans wanted to find the Northwest Passage, to ease trade. They didn't find it. So they created it. Now it exists.
