Richard Louv "The Nature Principle" Seattle 5/21/11
Refresh and try again. The Nature Principle Quotes Showing of 9.
The current number ranges from a conservative ten senses to as many as thirty, including blood-sugar levels, empty stomach, thirst, joint position, and more. The list is growing.
Yet, our growing disconnection from nature dulls our senses, and eventually blunts even the sharpened sensory state created by man-made or natural disaster. Encouraging personal reconnection does not mean less engagement with global environmental issues; it means more.
To act, most of us need motivation beyond despair. But electronic immersion, without a force to balance it, creates the hole in the boat — draining our ability to pay attention, to think clearly, to be productive and creative. Alive in the larger universe, alive in time.
