We’ve hardly started
Yet we’re already near the end.
In no time at all
We’ve overrun the planet
With numbers out of control
We’re setting a vile trend.
We’ve set the world alight
And are continuing to fan it.
Opher – 4.11.2020
It looks like we could take ourselves out. We are a new species with a spectacular rise in numbers. We think we are so clever we set ourselves apart from all other life, put ourselves on a pedestal.
We’re in danger of knocking ourselves off (and take everything else with us).
When more intelligent creatures, in some future time, come to look at our legacy, they’ll find a layer of rock rich with our bones along with a dearth of other forms of life. We will have killed them all off.
They will see humans as just another monkey.
Our arrogance and greed will be our downfall.
