This paper explores how people consciously perceive land as a social thing and the human perception in the development of land movements, which results in a collective phenomenon of interweaving, interruption and connection. As a property of the individual, the land is apparently a kind of commercial capital. However, it is turned into the ground of distinction when the land is brought back to the habitat of ethnic groups. In the extension of a material piece of land, people create some collective consciousness as a mental representation of and virtual connection to spatial partitioning and distribution. Furthermore, when natural disasters occur, the land is no longer regarded as some passive, inert matter, becoming instead an active, living being capable of responding in a (self-) destructive manner to human panning and exploitation. In light of this, we suggest that land movements of various times and places have always perceived interweaved with, interrupted by and connected to land and human relations.
