Nature is not natural and can never be naturalized — Graham Harman

Wednesday, June 1, 2011


An extraordinary post by Levi Bryant this evening leads me to rethink what I said in an interview with Peter Gratton last year, concerning the notion of wilderness.

Sometimes a piece of writing comes along that's just so impressive you have to open your mind to accommodate it.

More soon but in brief--I like this idea very much. One term you hear a lot in Buddhism, especially the esoteric sort, is spontaneity. The spontaneity of the natural state. It's perfectly possible to let your mind be wild. It's perfectly possible to contact Meillassoux's great outdoors. This spontaneity is what I associate to Levi's wilderness.
