“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 27

55 000 words. I'm done with two of the ten or so hyperobjects talks I've given so things are moving right along. It wasn't quite as pleasant today: mostly a lot of back-filling. There are some fairly elegant places in the talks in which I talk about physics, and I wanted to make sure they were in the book without overlapping with its existing content.
