Unfortunately, our efforts to understand the natural world lead to the attempted control and manipulation of nature.
Upon the realisation of the interconnectedness of all things - we must ask the question: why did our original endeavour lead to these oppressive actions?
I feel this is due to our egos inability to accept what we cannot control. The vast and wild natural environments in nature bring lots of unpredictability, and the ego does not compliment this.
Moving forward, some change is going to have to come internally and collectively and we must reclaim our role as stewards of the planet instead of conquerors driven by ego.
