Disconnected

The more I talk with people about nature, the more I realize we are profoundly disconnected. This is unnatural in every sense of the word, and I fear it may prove tragic. Of course, the really problem will start long before total calamity strikes. As I see it, the question of whether we unintentionally destroy ourselves and the planet is besides the point, a mere abstraction. When we are disconnected from wild nature, we are divorced from our true home and already less. If we are divorced from nature already, we should not be surprised to find ourselves struggling to live in a self-created world, and any talk of saving the planet or environmental responsibility becomes just a bunch of empty words. Disconnected we are less.
