Earth, terra, tellus mean both the soil and the planet, two meanings and one. But to the Athsheans soil, ground, earth was not that to which the dead return and by which the living live; the substance of their world was not earth, but forest. Terran man was clay, red dust. Athshean man was branch and root. They did not carve .gures of themselves in stone, only in wood. - Ursula K. Le Guin, ‘‘The Word for World Is Forest’’ (1972)
