On Page 8 Emerson says ” Standing on the bare ground…. all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transaparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all…” Hull talks in Chapter 9 that the western civilization is taught we are better than nature because we made in the image of God. In a 100 years or so our life vanishes from the planet, we become dust again but during that hundred years we can change things for good or for bad. Thoreau talks about walking and leaving society for time to think and appreciate Nature. When in the wild we can begin to see the insufficients of one little human. But we are sufficient as we can destroy Nature very easily with our little bit of pollution or a camp fire that was not contained or dumping of our car oil into the soil. Little things compound to make a bigger deal. We should look at ourselves as less important and more in harmony with everybody and all things.
