In wildness is the preservation of the world.

"We cannot adequately appreciate this aspect of nature if we approach it with any taint of human pretense. It will elude us if we allow artifacts like clothing to intervene between ourselves and this Other. To apprehend it, we cannot be naked enough."
~Henry David Thoreau

I agree clothing truly can get between us and the wilderness. To une stand nature we should dress nturally in our own skin. We know and understand others when we are naked as nature intended.
