“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 Talk about Genesis in Hell (that Genesis, as well as that one)

 Give this version a chance. I know, I know, it doesn't have Hackett. But it has...magic. I hadn't seen the video until just a few minutes ago. I wrote about this song in Hell, and it's uncanny how the video is exactly what I wrote. There are some crazy amazing things about the Hipgnosis image too, on the sleeve, which I also discuss. It's as if the sleeve, as well as the song, is embodying some of the deepest ideas in the book.
