‘…what I’m suggesting it is necessary to reject the notion of time that began in Europe during the eighteenth century and is closely linked with the positivism and linear accountability of modern capitalism: the notion that a single time, which is unlinear, regular, abstract and irreverisible, carries everything. All other cultures have proposed a coexistence of various times surrounded in some way by the timeless.

Return to the forests that belong to history… A sense of waiting, yet what is it that is waiting? And is waiting the right word? A patience. A patience for what? A forest incident. An incident we can neither name, describe, nor place. And yet is there.’   John Berger ‘Into the Wood’ 2006
