Monday thought of the week: control over time

A thought:

We hardly look up to the sky or the at the life around us. To most people nature is a concept, something that exists out there, that we see in YouTube videos or magazines, on BBC and Animal Planet specials. To recover a sense of control over time we need to return to nature; we need to create space to observe other forms of life; we need to reconnect with the night sky, far from the city lights.

– Marcelo Gleiser, “Battling A Sense Of Lost Time,” 13.7: Cosmos & Culture/NPR, December 11, 2013
