“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

Dark Ecology Liveblog 2

For philosophical reasons, it will only have one chapter.

Two chapters or sections (like Hyperobjects) provides you with something real and then a reflection on it.

Three chapters (like Ecology without Nature or The Ecological Thought) takes you on a journey from A to not-A to possibly B.

In dark ecology no journey is possible, because it is like a Möbius strip. Just as a Möbius strip has only one side, so in Dark Ecology there will be only one chapter.
