“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

Hyperobjects Liveblog 14

I finished a rewrite of an essay on feminism and ecology, had some good conversations on Skype, and sat down here at the student union to have a coffee and plunge back into Hyperobjects.

Going was a little sticky at first as I acclimatized to the special atmosphere of this particular project. But about one and a quarter hours has gone by and I've written 2000 words. All of them have been in the Introduction, which seemed like a good place to get back into it. I think I've reached the end of this particular train of thought, so I'll go and have some lunch and see if I can reenter the book from any number of the other possible entry points.
