"Moths dance around the flames. Satellites blood above us. The red landing lights of planes, visible through the crown of the forest looming around and over us."

"Philip Larken famously proposed that what will survive of us is love. Wrong. What will survive of us is plastic, swine bones and lead-207, the stable isotope at the end of the uranium-235 decay chain." - Robert Macfarlane
