Outdoor living is the paramount experience to understand reality. It gives you perspective – which is the lost art of seeing.
To see things as they are, in its whole, without the corrupted interpretation of opinion and speculation. To live what you see is knowledge.
Outdoor living teaches you distance; without it you are just one more high tech homunculus drifting away from reality.
Detachment, calmness, contemplation: the opposite of what i see everyday. Life in the city – a neurotic agitation towards destruction.
So, for the sake of sanity, immerse yourself in nature, periodically.
