“… I wonder what it would be like to go into a forest where nothing has a name… if we started all over, giving names, would any fact about the forest compel us to name the same units? Would we label trees? Or instead find a name for the unity of roots and soil and microorganisms? Or would we label only the gross of light on leaves and the shape of shadows on bark? How would we act in a forest with no names for anything smaller than an ecosystem? How could we walk, if there were no way to talk about anything larger than a cell?”
