“I’m trying to imagine what it would be like

going through life not knowing the names of the plants and animals around you...Philosophers call this state of isolation and disconnection ‘species loneliness’ —a deep, unnamed sadness stemming from estrangement from the rest of Creation, from the loss of relationship. As our human dominance of the world has grown, we have become more isolated, more lonely when we can no longer call out to our neighbors.”
