"It strikes me as somewhat odd that these practices aren’t a mainstay of society.
The more I read and hear about the agents of habitat philosophy, the stranger the
concept of “otherness” feels; there seems to be an illusion in our society that nature
is a force pitted against us, that we must fight against and overcome if we are to
survive––as if we are somehow not part of it. What I take away from the agents of
habitat series feels almost like what I take away from basic math classes: these are
basic principles that we as a society have somehow forgotten, and in the process we
have made things stunningly overcomplicated to compensate for much more
peaceful, easier ways that were perfect in the first place. It is the nature of all things
to be part of a network, and humans are no exception."
