I guess the definition only covers creatures on earth. I think there would need to be a separate word for extra terrestrials.brimstoneSalad wrote: ↑Mon Nov 19, 2018 2:29 amSo, in all the universe only human actions are unnatural?
Beings from another world arriving here in space ships far advanced of any technology we could ever dream of would be as natural as a beaver dam, which is as natural as any rock.
But a human makes a poo in the woods... and that steamy morsel is 100% unnatural?
I guess the definition only applies to things humans create consciously, not things our bodies automatically produce.
About the deer thing, the deer would still be considered natural because it wasn't made by a human, seeing a human made object wouldn't affect it's naturalness. Something made by a machine that was created by a human would be considered unnatural, as the thing made by the machine would in essence be made by the human, but the machine is basically just a tool used to make it.
