|| All too often we don't appreciate things until they are destroyed.
|| Let's hope that's not the case with our planet.
|| Most people are so focused on their own affairs that they don't notice most stuff beyond them.
|| (gulping a glass of wine) Yeah. What's new?
|| Maybe some computer system should take over this planet – humans have done a lousy job.
|| That scenario seems quite possible.
Moving Towards a Planetary Perspective
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?
