When developers make a road through a forest, the amount of square meters that is taken for this might be small. Naess, however, would argue that such a road may well go through the heart of this forest. When one gets deeper and deeper into a forest, he suggests in this short text from 1997, one may get the spontaneous experience of being deep in the forest. If you then hit the road, feeling completely disappears.
