nature & culture’s false dichotomy

ally

human animal origins cannot be extracted from human culture
scientific authority = patriarchal essence
science =/= objective truth
science = culture
the harder the science, the more divisions of domination are created
a behavior from nature holds meaning only insofar as it is construed
e.g. that a human eats as a result of hunting does not make hunting natural for humans
in the human dominated world, where the human species basks in dominion, each act of  human power over nonhuman is what feeling dominating is all about.
eating, like dominion, has cultural meaning attached to it
we must consider our dominance in order to transform our relations on Earth from being a resource exploiter to being an Earth ally
we regain our ‘right relations’ on Earth by releasing our bio-cultural adaptations that have risen our species above others
