Biophilia

...we are human in good part because of the particular way we affiliate with other organisms. They are the matrix in which the human mind originated and is permanently rooted, and they offer the challenge and freedom innately sought. To the extent that each person can feel like a naturalist, the old excitement of the untrammeled world will be regained. I offer this as a formula for reenchantment to invigorate poetry and myth... 


--E.O. Wilson, Biophilia.

    And it's why working in an office on a sunny day is such a punishment. Some days I feel like my dog is my best connection to nature.
