Our world is something we imagine and create within us out of material images and inner sensations (thoughts and desires). A baby or an undeveloped person are influenced by physical images. However, a developed adult can be moved by an event that is removed from him by time and space.
This lets us understand why most people who harm nature don’t sense that they are inflicting damage directly to themselves. It is because the human perception of the world is extremely narrow and limited.
However, when these people unite with others, who are more sensitive and developed, they will be able to adopt their perception of the world and forestall the damage they are causing themselves. Moreover, the correct environment has the power to make us treat one another kindly, even though our nature and our perception of the world are opposed to this attitude.
