God & Nature

"In Shintoism, nature is recognised as infinitely more powerful than humankind - as in the wave - and that humankind is in nature with the permission of the gods but with no particular concern from the gods."

-- Mark Vernon (once again, via Andrew Sullivan) in a piece examining The Great Wave of Kanagawa, by Hokusai
