“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

The Grey

Another Alaskan death drive movie: what is going on up there? : )

If the guys had stayed with the wrecked plane, they would have had a slim chance of being found.

This chance evaporated when they went with Mr. Suicidal Impulses into the forest to evade/be the wolves.

The cynical nihilist had the most truly spiritual experience and non-violent death, for the same reason. He was Schopenhauer.
