I feel that too.
Space is compressed and we tend to think that nature is outside of the city, while in the countryside we live together with / in nature.

Wonderful slide show. Somehow I feel that the fact that, for the first time in history more than half of the world population is living in cities, is very related to why we are having this debate on next nature right now, instead of a few centuries earlier or later.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
