I found Nollman's explanation of co-evolution interesting: "a tenuous first step away from our human role of exploiter to the new role of treating the planet as home and neighborhood." He also points out that everything is connected to everything else, which I wholeheartedly agree with. Even though the world is made up of very different complex species, "all living creatures are remarkably related on the basic level of genes."
It was also interesting when Nollman points out that human kind needs to be realigned with nature by learning something from another species, namely the willing, large-brained dolphins. Animals lead us back to a natural balance, and "the greatest teacher demonstrates for you your own true nature."
