“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

Realist Magic Liveblog 8

72 500 words. 70 out of 160 notes to go. Some notes in the database are a little bit complex to delve into right now. So I'm marking them with a certain mark to find later.

There are some suggestive things in this book. I'm trusting my intuition to work on the project right now without too much self censoring. After I've put all the notes in, I'll be able to scan the whole thing for smoothness and coherence.
