"When we enter [the woods], we enter a different world, not a static place filled with unrelated objects but a constantly interactive scenario filled with meaning and communication. And when we do, something very interesting begins to happen. We become intertangled in the livingness, the semantic underpinnings, of the world. And once that happens, the entire underpinnings of the reductionist, Western world begin to crumble."
