“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

Salt Sugar Fat

It strikes me that one thing this book reveals is how the taste map of the tongue is in error. There is a gigantic forest of sweet receptors for instance, throughout the mouth.

The mouth is a withdrawn thing and this fact makes that clearer. The old tongue map makes the appearance fit nicely over the thing.

If the months of the year were a tongue-- October, November and December would be the Salt Sugar Fat parts.
