Once upon a time, humans lived in peace and harmony. It was understood that both needed each other and through cooperation, both could fully thrive.
Today, society has taught us differently. Society teaches about this alien thing called "the wild". It tells us that the wild and all of the creatures that inhabit, are out to get us... It is a fight for life between them and us. It teaches to fear the bear, to see the cow as food only, to be grossed out by the spider and that domination with force is always necessary.
It is easy to accept this. The bear will mostly attack.
It is more difficult to ask "why is the bear attacking?". Is it because it is a human killing creature? Always on prowl to steal our food and our lives? Or could it be that this bear, this creature who is much more fit to live on this planet than we are.. Is it possible that the bear feels and senses our fear and aggression towards it? Is it possible that the bear seeks our food simply because we have rendered his non existent?
Could it be that society has lied to us about our companions?
