—Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy, Chapter 6A “thing” [according to Bishop George Berkeley] is merely a bundle of perceptions—i.e., classified and interpreted sensations … your breakfast is at first nothing but a congeries of sensations of sight and smell and touch; and then of taste; and then of internal comfort and warmth.
—Tristan Gooley, How to Connect with Nature, Part III Chapter 1.In November 2011, David Austin, a 28-year-old from Derby, walked into a remote area of the Scottish HIghlands with a plan to live rough off the land. His body was found in a bothy a few weeks later by a local worker. It wasn’t for want of air, food or water that he perished. Sadly, David lost a battle with hypothermia.
