“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

OOO and Freedom

More on that OOO non-theism tip:

The OOO reality is one where there is fundamental freedom and fundamental contingency. Iron necessity (formalized as Newtonian physics) and Axial Age angry old men in the sky who want to kill you are totally out.

Even a being like that couldn't grasp a single Coke bottle top in its entirety. Or iridescent beetle wing case.
