NATURE does not exist!!!
You have to check, check, check again.
Indeed, the term nature designates a set of phenomena that for convenience of language we designate by a particular term: nature, chance, god, evolution, animism, etc... this is called putting labels like on a jar of jam to avoid to open all the other jars before finding the right one. At the same time by always opening the same type of jars, by personal taste, according to the label
, we end up ignoring that there are other tastes to discover which may be better or worse.
This is what this anthropologist is trying to explain.
Wait a long time, then a very long time, and finally a very, very long time.
Oh yes! This is what we call acquired through experience which can be achieved over a very short time, such as realizing that the water "wet" (which is just another word for a sensation). , not a measure) or that the fire is burning, another sensation, which is characterized by suffering when touched. Others are only observed over longer periods of time, even very, very long periods of time, such as the theory of evolution or the discovery of poisons in food which are transmitted from generation to generation.
you are satisfied with the labels, it is your choice which makes you ignore the rest, because it has no apparent connection. This is what this anthropologist is trying to explain.
