Humans are undoubtedly part of nature and just like a bird’s nest, human architecture is just as natural. However, there is a separation between humans and their creations and the rest of nature. While I understand the demarcation as we need to define our identity as a species, I find that the way it is made sets us apart from nature as a distinct entity. I believe that this is the main reason why we are capable of being harmful to our environment. If we would understand that we belong to nature just like all other animal species we would be able to better preserve what is in essence our Mother, with the difference that we never left the womb; we live here.
