Outdoors

Human beings are just an ordinary part of the biosphere, and the biosphere is our limit. We will never be anything other than animals and all cosmic dreams are just that – dreams. Space flight is bound to fail because we can’t actually live away from the rest of the biosphere. Cosmic fantasies, religions and all that are creations of human culture, of the interior—the psychological and the social interior. Dark, heavy, enveloping delusions. My recipe for art is to spend more time outside. There’s more going on.
