Wilhelm Reich on difference between observing basic nature and changed nature

"They break up light by putting it through a prism and then they think that they are investigating the real thing, but they aren't.... They have a child do certain things and then they describe it as natural functioning instead of seeing how the child behaves when he plays by himself. Again and again they alter nature and so they never get to basic nature....I have great respect fro what they have accomplished but it was not nature they were investigating. I am very strict about this with myself and with my students."
