Then they grow away from the earth then they grow away from the sun then they grow away from the plants and the animals.
They see no life. When they look they see only objects. The world is a dead thing for them the trees and the rivers are not alive. the mountains and stones are not alive. The deer and bear are objects. They see no life.
They fear. They fear the world. They destroy what they fear. They fear themselves. — Leslie Marmon Silko
