    Regarding the other essay it seems obvious we will never master thinking like a mountain, or a wolf or a deer. So the wiser choice is to leave sufficient wildness intact. We are not in either hemisphere wise enough to speak for the planet so the best approach is to refrain from cutting the safety net of the wider biosphere out from under ourselves. A disposition to trust more to the right hemisphere can at least foster a disposition to recognize our own limitations and respect that which we depend on.
