In the mechanics of intellect, conceptualization is a
process where
only one part of the mental operation
is favored, not just by ignoring
the other part but by
specifically rejecting it. We have thus become
conditioned to accept the rational intellect and reject
intuition that we feel ourselves enslaved by
nature, where as it is
not nature that enslaves us
but our attachment to our particular
interpretation of
it. We forget that nature is not different from us
- we
are nature. Indeed, it is this separation from the rest
nature that we ourselves create which is the cause
of all our conflict
both within and without and of our
wanton destruction of nature itself.
