I can't find it, but on our holiday we had SKY for a few days, including the Discovery Channel with its assortment of Discovery shows. There was the most amazing video segment I have ever seen. There was a man, who was talking about how in the city you couldn't see the horizon. He had an eagle. There were clips of the city he lived in, and plants growing in between all the buildings sped up, showing nature trying to reclaim the city. I wish I had the video! "What is a city but an attempt to exclude nature?" was one quote. He spoke about nature always trying to restore the balance, v.s. the way that people lived, and that one day it would succeed. It ended by saying his job was a "conservation biologist".
He said it so much more strongly, but I've always felt this as well! Yay for the spiritual awakening the world is experiencing.
