Wildlife

The point has been made time and again that humans, too, are as much ‘animals’ as any other member of the kingdom. Yet what separates us is clearly our instinct to civilize, order, and oftentimes subdue any ‘wild’ instinct that might still persist somewhere in our DNA.

Thus, the wildlife that surrounds us, from insects to lions to dolphins to venus fly traps, captivates us not only out of beauty and the wonderment of their existential differences, but from their ‘wild’ core that has no need for codified systems of living, no sense of the world beyond what they have seen and experienced. It is rare that we might observe wildlife and learn nothing of ourselves.
