“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

So I got the thinking down--and this book is going to be 90% thinking, only 10% examples. The examples fit the thinking in two ways: long term models for the paradox of dark ecology, and shorter term indices of the syndrome. These shorter term indices reflect my long term love of what we can easily call the gothic.

It's going to be 30 000 words long. With a bunch of images. And hopefully sounds, and other data.
