our reality is not built on duplexes. Anime goes beyond usual contradictions when talking about ecology.

TYPICAL DUALITIEs:
human vs nature
culture vs nature
technology vs nature
evil technology vs good nature
civilized culture vs wild nature
they are not just a fiction. but ecology shows us that we need to think in a more complicated way.
ecological thought disrupts duplexes, because it is the sistem of relations. for example, when you die, your body can become soil for other things to grow.
"Timothy Morton argues that all forms of life are connected in a vast, entangling mesh. This interconnectedness penetrates all dimensions of life. No being, construct, or object can exist independently from the ecological entanglement, Morton contends, nor does "Nature" exist as an entity separate from the uglier or more synthetic elements of life. Realizing this interconnectedness is what Morton calls the ecological thought"
