“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

Also Sprach Zarathustra

I'm listening to Strauss's tone poem and realizing that it would work very well in my study of hyperobjects and what they do to art.

The soaring, descending chromatic lines that could end anywhere: they are extreme examples of traveling limitlessly within a pre-established story world. A Nietzschean dance-on-a-volcano “revaluation of all values.” Within the human world.
