“Fresh beauty opens one’s eyes wherever it is really seen, but the very abundance and completeness of the common beauty that besets our steps prevents its being absorbed and appreciated. It is a good thing, therefore, to make short excursions now and then to the bottom of the sea among dulse and coral, or up among the clouds on mountain-tops, or in balloons, or even to creep like worms into dark holes and caverns underground, not only to learn something of what is going on in those out-of-the-way places, but to see better what the sun sees on our return to common every-day beauty.” – John Muir (environmentalist, conservationist, and father of the Nation Parks)
No offense Mr. Muir, but if Manifest Destiny and Steven Colbert through his book “I Am America (and So Can You!)” have taught us anything, it’s that we must dominate both nature and animal. Otherwise, we better be prepared for some Jurassic Park and 2012 type chaos.
That is, except for him. So much for being the master of his own domain because he just got owned by nature. He better watch out because FernGully and the Na’vi are pissed and they’re looking to take their revenge.
