    The philosophical meaning of "nature" is nature. The nature of things. What is nature? From this angle is the same as saying 'What is our true reality'

    That is the impossible question.

    We're better at controlling our environment, and using it to our advantage than any other species on this planet. So much so that we believe we have separated ourselves from it, when we have not.

    Did sonar screw up the comunication of dolfins and whales with a repetitious blip every few seconds like my NT screws up me?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Shouldn't we have a no water consumption day instead of a lights out day? That way, when we're just about out of water some day, we'll have enough for one more day?
