I have spent a lot of time outdoors. I can camp in a forest and have a very restful sleep without fear. This is because the more I spend time outdoors the more “attuned” I become with nature — exactly the way our ancestors were ALL THE TIME. People who have never camped in the forest generally spend their first night in fear. This is because they have been softened by “civilised” living. Those are the people to whom Lovecraft has the strongest effect on. The attuned people are more unmoved by his work. I have found this to be true time and time again.
