this is a philosophical debate. many people think the universe has a big sign on it that says “do not touch.”
leave alone. it was made this way. it is not in our right as human beings to change anything.
i can respect that view although i disagree with it.
i think the universe has a big sign on it that says:
“go forth and spread life”
because when i look around the universe i think life is the most amazing thing we see.
it is just incredible.
and we human beings are uniquely positioned to help spread life, from this little tiny planet, which it seems to have started on… beyond
and thats our gift
earth’s gift to the universe, i think, is the gift of life
