“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

"I identify with, therefore I am"

Is this a symptom of correlationism, in which a thing, including myself, is blank I can format as I wish?

And is it the flip side of "I am seen as, therefore I am," the logic of the designation enemy combatant?

Isn't being seen-as often something one wishes others could see through? If one is suffering for instance?
