"The Machine is everything you have ever known and everything you have ever been told. The Machine is the unconscious collective sum of humanity. It assimilates everything in its path, turning meadows and wildlands into subdivisions and shopping malls. The Machine sucks the life out of children, making them into automatons that work without meaning and consume without purpose."
--Thomas J. Elpel,

In our media-driven world, getting back to nature is essential to gain positive grounding in the real world. Science, history, and ecology concepts learned from books are meaningless without a physical connection. Wilderness experiences help wire the hands to the brain, integrating conceptual knowledge, while building an ethic of stewardship and the tools to think sustainably. For instance, building and maintaining a campfire helps connect the physical world with the conceptual world to more intuitively quantify energy and understand where it comes from. This connection facilitates comprehension of everything from conservation to sustainable design to energy policy.
