“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

Form Is Almost Everything

...that's at least half the battle actually. It has taken me a long time to figure out what Dark Ecology wanted to be.

I was trying to fit it, or better to stretch it, into three chapters. I have enough material for three chapters, for sure.

But it just didn't feel right. Now I'm excited about the book, because the form feels exactly right.

I like the idea of a single tunnel that takes you back to where you started.
