JG Ballard and a quote about Nature
January 18, 2008 6:38 PM   Subscribe

JG Ballard said something about our pornography-addicted culture being due to a disconnect with nature, but I don't have an exact quote. So with hat in hand, I appeal to the hive mind.

I must've read it in a RE/SEARCH mag many years ago, but I don't have any of them kicking around anymore. Any reference to this compelling statement would be appreciated.

"A widespread taste for pornography means that nature is alerting us to some threat of extinction," from "News from the Sun" in Myths of the Near Future (1982).
