|Gunther:||All too often we don't appreciate things until they are destroyed.|
|Nadya:||Let's hope that's not the case with our planet.|
|Bill:||Most people are so focused on their own affairs that they don't notice most stuff beyond them.|
|Nadya:||(gulping a glass of wine) Yeah. What's new?|
|Bill:||Maybe some computer system should take over this planet – humans have done a lousy job.|
|Liao:||That scenario is quite possible.|
|If we considered ourselves visitors to this planet|
would we treat it with more respect?
Can we learn to see this planet as a rare anomaly
in a universe that's mostly dead?
Perhaps we should view ourselves
as passengers in a small spaceship
instead of beings with boundless room?
Are we heading the way of dinosaurs
by focussing solely on our next meal
or can we consider our long-term future
and find ways to help this planet heal?
