Horohoro: The law of the jungle... My dad has always talked about it since I was a kid. The rules of nature are absolute, so there's nothing better than to appreciate that you can't disobey them. Whether it's the sky or the sea, every world has its own ruler. Even the king of beasts, the lion, can't fly in the skies or dive to the seafloor. I doubt he'd even try to eat the moles in the earth. By moving his world below the ground, the mole defeated the lion!
Reverto: I was sure my time was up. After a while, I heard the whistle of the wind, the roar of water. The wind was my own breath, and the water my blood flowing. I was alive. When I finally sat up, the defeated beast lay sprawled beside me. For a second, I was confused: Was I the monster, or was the monster me? That's how much I had become one with the monster's movements. At that moment, I was part of nature, part of that forest. One more beast, no different from the monster. "Be the forest, be the beast": I felt like I'd begun to understand what those words meant. Neither monsters, nor Hunters. We become the forest, become the beast, and as Hunters, become one with the monsters and live our lives with their blessing.
Yu Ominae: Our science can be pretty amazing, but nothing can stand up against the power of nature. Apparently, not even a civilization of gods.
Makoto: A spiral. Spirals appear in galaxies, typhoons, and even biomolecules. They're an innate pattern of life.
Bowman: This planet could swallow up and wash away all the prosperity the human intellect has wrought as though it were nothing. No human love or hatred will remain, but life and its workings will. You and I are but single parts of that. And that's why you and I are able to stand upon this earth. Why we can look upon this landscape. And yet, people continue to dig up the past, hungry to reclaim the prosperity of bygone years. After the ancient artifacts were used to gain power, after they were made into weapons, they will be turned on this land before us.
Iron Maiden Jeanne: Laws are rules for life itself. They are natural and inherent to the universe. The pheasant chick who doesn't heed his mother's word cannot sense danger and will be taken by the hawk. The wicked bloodline of the wolf who abandons mother and cubs will end when those cubs starve to death. In nature, those who break the rules are in the wrong and are doomed. However, human society has become complicated, and people can no longer entrust themselves to nature's providence. That's why they need laws. Absolute laws, divinely enforced. In the 1700 BCE, the human race's first laws were handed down by our God of Justice, Shamash.
