32. Humans used to know how to communicate with animals,
this knowledge used to be part of us, we didn't separate ourselves from them like we do now. We have become so separate that we have lost our ability to sense their feelings and recognize their intent, and have lost much wisdom about the ways of each animal.

I remember one morning I went to work and a whole swatch of trees had been bulldozed down, a silent morning in AK. A bird was crying, mourning the loss of most likely a nest since it was Spring, and all I could do was cry too--the sound was unmistakably a bird crying, it rang throughout the valley that morning.
