“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 20

32 000 words. That means there's only 8000 words to go of self-constraint. Okay. I can do this. I think. Somehow 8000 is far less daunting than 10 000. Perhaps 10 000 is “psychologically important” as they say of a certain stock market figure. I wrote 8000 words yesterday, so if I punch it again, there's only one day of work left before I can break open my notes.
