Incandescence #2 | “Most of us exist in worlds that are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. We forget there are environments that do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and that have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of forces greater than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with spans of time greater than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes.”

— British writer Robert MacFarlane, from his book “Mountains of the Mind: Adventures in Reaching the Summit”
