Isn’t it literally breathtaking how many components nature consists of and yet how little we know about those? We humans have begun to turn away from nature and stopped trying to understand nature in its elements, perhaps because it does not fit into our complex world view. But here somehow incomprehension arises. How can it be that a normal person in this day and age is not even able to list 10 tree or plant species? It is impossible to develop an interest or responsibility for something as long as you don’t know it. Humans usually tend to treat matters about which we lack the necessary knowledge as insignificant and treat them accordingly. This has enabled humans to make enormous progress in a very short time, but humanity now faces the problem of having to begin to understand what has been forgotten in the past. We humans are as much a part of nature as everything else around us, and we cannot expect to benefit ourselves over a long period of time by continually harming ourselves through our own behaviour.
