How to reconnect with our human nature?
What if we remember… how it was when we lived in harmony with nature? What if we were reconnected to the earth, the biodiversity, the seasons? How to recreate such an harmony? Is it possible?

Would this not lead us into isolated communities, random tribes trying to be self sufficient? Or would be reconnect differently? What does the tree understand about my heart?
