We probably should admit now for the forum eyes to see that we are actually the same person with two personalities going on here.My backyard overlooks a small nature reserve area too. Could it be the same one?
Open a window.I can't feel the breeze indoors.
Open a window.I don't hear as many night sounds indoors.
Dear Ancestors,Indoors, I'm isolated from the weather and other aesthetic aspects of nature.
Can you please explain why you invented things like "houses" and "roofs" to me? I feel like I am too isolated from the weather by utilizing such cheats as these in my life.
Your ungrateful descendant
Yeah, water from places like a "city" doesn't have the flavor and unique texture that worm larva can give.Water from wilderness springs and streams tastes much better than city water, and even most well water and bottled water. I am ze wateur connoisseur.
I suppose there could be some added variables in here as you run towards the nearest bathroom, praying to the Gods that you make it.Exercise with variable intensity and ranges of motion not typically experienced on gym equipment or flat walking/running
This is what having a door on our house is for. So we can close it, and perhaps lock it.Temporarily remove ourselves from modern society, culture, technology, and even people if desired
Yes, running for the bathroom could qualify here.Encounter new experiences and challenges not encountered in everyday life
Like toilet paper!Refocus on the essentials of life
Yes, the same people who left the wilderness in order to enjoy the great indoors.Understand the primitive ways of our ancestors and other cultures
That's what National Geographic channel is for!See firsthand how all of life depends on nature and the Earth
Except that nature usually returns the favor with things like a tornado, or hail storm, or worm infested water.Direct, personal interaction with nature teaches a respect for it in the same way which direct, personal interaction with another person enhances respect for that person
