“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

Hyperobjects in Buddhist Door

 I'm touched that they talked about my work.

"Now that hyperobjects have entered our consciousness, there is no escaping them. We understand that there is no “away,” no “nature,” and no “world” as blank terra nullius upon which our human drama limitlessly plays out, like a steady-state backdrop. We can no longer simply consider the planet as a free stockpile of raw materials, nor turn a blind eye to the suffering our addiction to growth and consumption inflicts on others and consequently on ourselves. (...) What is it going to take to motivate great numbers of us to abandon our sick narcissism and embrace our interbeing with Planet Earth?"
