The World In Here

"To recover that sense of belonging to a natural landscape is indeed to recover the sanity of one's own nature.  That's probably because we spent 95 percent of human history wandering such places in small bands in nomadic omnivores.  The human mind evolved here, not in cities.  The mind's interior landscape feels at home, much as we try to deny it, in the 'wilderness' that has really been our species' domestic domain for almost all of our existence."

Quoted from "In The Presence of Rock And Sky," by Erik Reece, in Issue 412 of The Sun.
