naturalplastic: I could define "culture" but I couldnt define "nature"-EXCEPT-by saying that it is "everything not man made". But then if I said THAT-then I couldnt claim that "human culture is a subset of nature"

Perhaps just as an anthill/termite mound, or spider's web, or bird's nest is still considered part of nature, so are the artifacts of humans? But because *we* made them we consider our artifacts to be fundamentally different...
