In the current world view, nature is seen to be chaotic and destructive. Descartes spoke of being the master and owner of Nature. To him, Nature was a problem - something to be "owned" and "tamed". Tony asks us to reinvent uncivilisation, not as a mutant of the current barbaric form of what we call "civilisation", based on the control of Nature; but rather as a form of peaceful coexistence between Homo sapiens and the environment. Our significance as human beings derives from being part of Nature, rather than being a master and owner of Nature.
