“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 17

20 000 words. That means I'm halfway towards my goal of writing a chunk of this book without reference to any notes whatsoever. It's a very freeing experience, but like a lot of freeing experiences, there had to be some preparation beforehand.

At the moment I'm writing about just intonation and art in the time of hyperobjects.
