Are Humankind and Nature Bipolar?

Iskandar and the Talking Tree

Nature can be the enemy as has been evident from the biblical flooding and drought which have accompanied global warming. There are Cassandras who believe the earth is actually off its rocker. On the other hand even confronting severe elements, you may find yourself experiencing the delusion you're one with nature. The notion of cosmic indifference is anathema if you’re in the throes of this kind of exhilaration. It’s a sweet dream that belies the fact that humankind may inhabit nature while at the same time essentially having little in common with it. Homo sapiens are characterized by will and consciousness. There have been those who believe that trees are sentient. Hope springs eternal! But not only do nature and humans seem to be in conflict much of the time, they're literally bipolar opposites.
