“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 Fun of Writing Talks

So next week I'm doing this philosophy lecture at Berkeley on OOO and ethics and politics. And I sat down and wrote 20 pages of it in like one hour. I'm so happy when that happens. It's sort of to do with gelling with the wishes of the group or person who invited you. That's what gets you to boiling point.
