Humans Are Not Nihilistic Princes of Darkness

“By coming to terms with an increasing range of objects, human beings do not become nihilistic princes of darkness, but actually the most sincere creatures the earth has ever seen.”

That has got to be one of my favorite lines of Graham's.

And look: a human tunes to his beloved parrots. Very much so.

Th other side of that threepence might be a reductive "We are all ecofascists to other species so enjoy the party". I struggle with this even as I consider Graham's deeper meaning and abandoning a ring fence view of the natural.
