The philosophical relationship proposed in this article suggests a symbiosis between ourselves and materials. Although at first ‘materials’ were simply natural objects. The physical evolutionary evidence echoes this theory, as quoted from the BBC’s Wonders of Life, “Our ability to process visual signals required larger brains, which in turn hungered for more input of visual signals,” which, it could be argued, has driven the quest for manufacturing the tools that facilitate this. We are caught in an evolutionary loop.

This article made me imagine we are sourcing so much from beneath the earth that it will just deflate and collapse one day, revealing a new surface with which it can start again. With small-brained beings.
