“Exquisite complex beings in their energy webs inhabiting the fertile corners of the urban world in accord with the rules of wild systems, the visible hardy stalks and stems of vacant lots and railroads, the persistent raccoon squads, bacteria in the loam and in our yogurt. The term culture in its meaning of ‘a deliberately maintained aesthetic and intellectual life’ and in its other meaning of ‘the totality of socially transmitted behavior patterns,’ is never far from a biological root meaning as in ‘yogurt culture’ – a nourishing habitat. Civilization is permeable, and could be as inhabited as the wild is. ”
— Gary Snyder in The Practice of the Wild
