"Other" by Hunter Madsen

"Other"

  
   

To desire an object, you begin by perceiving it as Other, and your relationship as Separation.
   

"The world is your body... The prevalent sensation of oneself as a separate ego enclosed in a bag of skin is a hallucination that accords neither with Western science nor with the experimental philosophy-religions of the East... This hallucination underlies the misuse of technology for the violent subjugation of man's natural environment and, consequently, its eventual destruction."
                - Alan Watts, The Book on the Taboo 
                  Against Knowing Who You Are (1964)
