Art: The Highest form of Civilization.
When people achieve a heightened sense of civilization they exert minimal pressure on their environment, and their every footprint on the environment can even be admired simply as art! They have become a part of the whole – not appendages of it. They have become one with nature – not strangers to it. They have become the children of Nature (of God), not the exploiters of Nature (or the Devil).
