The first domesticated animal, according to Livingston, was neither dog nor goat, but human. Humans cut themselves adrift from the rest of the world by becoming entirely dependent on ideas. Technical ideas gave them the power to manipulate nature as well as a rationalization for their destructiveness. Now humans have drawn other animals, and even the natural world itself, into the service of their belief systems. Even our understanding of nature is informed by an ideological insistence that domination is somehow 'natural'.
