Historical Context:
"Human's relationship to nature is simultaneously the most basic and critical facet of how we conceptualize our existence. Over the course of our history, we have defined ourselves as being distinct from nature. This perceived separation has caused us to view nature as being something that exists outside our experience, something inherently inferior. Having no original authority to our constructed distinction, this destructive worldview is only validated through our belief in its truth. "Nature" is merely an idea that exists in the human psyche- a construction." -Nathan Dorotiak
