It is true that the reason for needing nature, and each other, can be explained and verified in scientific terms, but people are a social species. It is our stories—or myths—that tell us about connectedness and why we need nature and each other. However, the full meaning of that connectedness also requires us to use another dimension of our mental capacity—one that goes beyond intellectual understanding and into the realm of art. It’s like seeing in the dark: you can see things more clearly if you look indirectly at them instead of focusing directly on them.
